Rated 5 out of 5 by Dan75 Just right...
The hotel was located in the perfect place for my meetings in downtown Chicago... and the room was perfect for my needs (quiet, convenient, etc).

Rated 4 out of 5 by db26 Great Hotel for downtown Chicago
Stayed here for 4 nights.
-Front desk and lobby staff were excellent and very helpful. Great restaurant recommendations from the concierge. Forgot to bring shaving cream on my trip and they provided me a can of shaving cream with a razor too.
-Room lighting was excellent and bright, which wasn't what I was expecting for a W. But it made working in my room a pleasant experience
-Walls are paper-thin, I could clearly hear my neighbors talking or watching TV as if we were in the same room
-Room was very very dry. My skin never felt so dry before; I went through lotion bottles like crazy,
-Very tiny bathroom with extremely small vanity. But that is the norm for old downtown Chicago hotels
-One of the days I was there, the housekeeper was going around all the rooms at 8AM. Too early!! But this only happened one day, so maybe just a rogue housekeeper.
So-So items to note:
-One complimentary bottle of Dasani water is included. But the Smartwater in the room is part of the mini-bar and has a charge.
-If you like to go out late at night, there isn't much open late around the hotel's immediate vicinity. You would be better off staying on North Michigan Avenue instead.
Would I stay again: Yes

Rated 2 out of 5 by santorini Staff was insincere and unappreciative of my loyalty to Starwood. Concierge was way off and trivialized our request. This hotel is all about the bar
Hotel was all about the bar and did not care as much about the loyal SPG members. Concierge had his own agenda and was not helpful.

I am a fair easy going person, but found some staff down right rude and unhelpful. Other staff members were exceptional.

Rated 3 out of 5 by michaelm74 Older Hotel, very tight room even tighter bathroom
As a frequent W guest, this hotel is not up to the traditional standard I've come to know and love from other W's.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Drake4519 Great location but....
The hotel is in a great location and sadly thats the only nice thing I can say about my stay. After being ignored at check in for over 10 minutes, I was handed a key to a room. Upon entering the room, it was obvious from the strewn trash and the unflushed toilet full of urine that the room had not been cleaned. Upon contacting the front desk, I was given a different room. The remainder of my stay I noticed an overall lack of cleanliness with the hallways only cleaned intermittently. I was at the lobby of the hotel when it began to down pour, I asked the concierge if we may borrow an umbrella to which he responded there is one for purchase in your room. Not what I would expect from an SPG hotel of this standard. At check out, I was once again left standing by an empty reception area for someone to arrive. I mentioned it to the concierge that was within eyesight of my location and all he could say was that someone will be with you. Another 10 minutes passed and no one arrived, I asked the concierge if he may actually call on someone to help the ever growing line of people to which he got off his personal cell phone and called someone. Will not stay here again, travelers beware.

Hotel is fine, yet lobby and elevators make you think you are living within the confines of a pinball machine.

No leg room in bathroom. Little water pressure. Confusing lobby with the old nightclub atmosphere.
