W Chicago Lakeshore

Megawatt Marvel

What it is

A bold and colorful tower with lake views, an eye-popping seasonal restaurant and bar where DJs spin, a gym with personal trainers and yoga sessions, and an indoor pool.

What it isn't

Just for people. Fidos under 40 pounds are welcome here, too, for a V.I.P. (very important pet) experience, for a small fee.

What we think

Chicago is the ultimate lakeside town…so shouldn’t you see the water from your hotel? Yes. So while we love the Wonderful Guest Rooms City View for their playful interiors and custom furniture, we think it’s worth treating yourself to a room like the Spectacular 1 King Lake View: you’ll have a panorama over Lake Michigan (which almost looks turquoise from this vantage) and a spacious 350 square foot room with a feathertop pillowtop mattress….blissful. For the ultimate splurge, get the Wow, 1 Bedroom Suite, Lake View, which has a 951 square foot floor plan complete with a kitchen, round velvet sofa, and one and a half marble lined bathrooms. You may never want to leave.

You're here because

The hotel hosts events that even the locals flock to, including trivia nights, concerts with regional DJs and musicians, and so much more.

The Moment

From your supple blue leather banquette at Current, the best produce of Midwestern farms illuminate every dish—from the roasted eggplant with pomegranate molasses to the heirloom tomato studded flatbreads. But it’s the mushroom rigatoni with boursin cream that you’ll be fantasizing about for weeks to come. Heaven on a plate.

Restaurants & Bars

The Current Restaurant —  Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, CURRENT embraces European cuisine with a cosmopolitan flair.

The Living Room Bar — The Living Room is the social hub of W Chicago - Lakeshore - a place to mingle and play after a day spent exploring Navy Pier or relaxing on the waterfront.


Fronting Lake Michigan on the edges of North Side, a block from Ohio Street Beach and five from the Navy Pier (home to the 196 foot Centennial Wheel).
