I recently moved from 500 North Lake Shore.  If I hadn't relocated out of state, I would have renewed for sure.Aside from a few minor issues, the building and unit were fantastic.  The Equinox gym and common areas were especially great.  The staff was definitely the best part of 500.  I'll miss them.The attached garage, while secure

I moved into this building in August, and it has been absolutely amazing! Previously I stayed at two other elite properties in the down town area, and this building, hands down is the best. Amenities, staff, unit, parking, location are absolutely superb. Joe at their leasing center is a super star, if you see the building and for

This is Chicago's latest greatest commercial apartment tower located in the heart of Streeterville close to Navy Pier. Visit this place and you'll certainly want to call it home with it's incredible amenity floor.

Good, but certainly not the best

Nice stay. Good rooms, comfy bed. Whisky sky (lounge on 32 floor) was disappointing. Highly recommend using the italian market a block away for daily needs like water, snacks. Charges on these in the room are riduculous. They also tried to sneak a room charge on my card but quickly took it off once I called them. A hotel definitely f

Not worth it!

While an extremely "happening" place, the place needs cosmetic work. The linens and room amenities were first class but the details needs some sprucing up. Woke up in the morning to things strewn up and down and about my hallway. The staff, very, very pleasant all, and helpful if you asked for something, also seemed nonchalant. In ot

Noisy

Very Noisy. No sound proofing between rooms. The rooms are very nice but hallways etc are very worn. Was a little surprised since it was a W.

Top Hotel; room sizes and quality could be better

I found the service, both for check-in, and the rooms to be great. However, the size of the room and the quality of the fixtures could be slightly better. I got the impression that the dark lighting, funky music, and Asian-inspired fittings hid a slightly shoddy structure and what could otherwise be considered an unremarkable hotel.

Don't believe the hype

I love W hotels. But the W Lakeshore seems a bit mroe interested in being a W than being a hotel. The service was friendly but inept -- for example, when room service delivered coffe instead of tea, it took them 30 minutes to fix the problem, then the tea water tasted like coffee from being put in the coffee carafe. When I called the

Would stay here again

This hotel was very nice. Trendy and fun to hang out. The rooms were a little small, but comfortable. The conceirge did a great job with his restaurant suggestions and getting us tickets to the Cubs game. Very satisfied. Would recommend and would stay here again.

Great if you want a singles, Club scene

The amenities at the hotel are cool, upscale and hip. This is clearly one of the night time hotspots in Chicago and at night the lobby, elevators, and bars are crawling with the socialites and a lot of suburban wannabes. Probably a great bet for single guys on a biz trip and a horrible choice for families. If you want a quiet hotel w

Excellent Location

Spent one night, Thursday. The location is close to Michigan Avenue, within walking distance, and across from the beautiful lake shore. Travel by cab was perfect for sightseeing and visiting the museums and art institiute. Extremely comfortable beds provided a good nights sleep.

Great Trip

I overall had a lovely time at the W Lakeshore. In terms of location, it is right on the lake and has lovely views. It is a big farther from Michigan Avenue than some of the other hotels and than I would have liked (a few extra and quiet blocks), but still a great location overall. Our room was very clean and service was excellent (a

Energetic or Chaotic? I'm just not sure.

While the rooms and public spaces of this property well reflect the W mantra I was not overly satisfied with the attention to detail. The carpet in the elevator lobby looked like it hadn't been vacuumed in a while, some paint was chipping from the elevator door frames, one of the duvets in my room had a couple of holes in it and my r

Great place to stay!

Hotel was great! Loved the vibe - nice to hear music I actually listen to in lobby/elevator instead of the usual blah stuff. Very hip. Loved the modern decor! Room was spacious. Love the location - close to the lake, and close to downtown shopping & restaurants! Staff was VERY helpful, and friendly! This place isn't for Grandma and G

Best Location in Chicago - but small rooms

Very close to Navy Pier and Olive Beach - just about as close as one can get. Very hip hotel; great for singles or couples, both straight and gay. We went as a family (mom, dad, and two kids) - and had a great time. Great beds, friendly and helpful staff. The rooms overlooking the lake were a bit loud at night, and be ready to shell

Hip and affordable

Great location and amazing views of Lake Michigan. Hotel staff goes out of there way to make this one of the best hotels in the city.

Not Impressed

Although the staff was attentive, with the exception of the bartender, the rooms were not worth the money. The bed was extremely hard and made for a long night. We woke up as, if not more, tired than when we laid down. I have stayed at several Chicago Hotels and will not return to this one.

beautiful decor, skip the extras

They were hosting a ton of college students who were up loudly partying two of the three nights we were there. Comfortable beds, not much sleep. Everything was for sale, including the morning coffee in the lobby and the $8 bottle of water next to the bed.
