“Loved it!”
Reviewed 2 May 2012

This is one of my favorite hotel in the country. I was staying here on business and not only did the room exceed my expectation but the food in the restaurant was fantastic.

The room was spacious, updated with all modern amenities, well decorated and very well kept. My corner room had a great view with a balcony to enjoy the view of Chicago. There was enough room to work and relax. The bedroom was spacious with and the bed was comfortable.

The food in their "bistro" style restaurant was 5 stars. If you have time to go to the bar, it has a cool vibe, almost a lounge setting. A great place to have a drink, snacks and relax.

The location is also ideal. Walking distance to great restaurants and shopping.

Great hotel, will definately stay there again. The service is second to none. Wonderful room. The only weird thing is that we had to ask for more hand lotion and soap as it was not replenished. Breakfast was disappointing for the price. You will not be disappointed if you stay there.

Room Tip: We had a coner suite, about 1100 SqFt. It was very nice.

Just got back from a sisters' weekend in Chicago and we stayed at the Waldorf Astoria. The staff are so friendly and accomodating. It's very convenient that we didn't have to tip for everything they assisted us with (they refuse tips). We stayed in a King Suite, which had a pullout couch, which wasn't very comfortable but the rest of the suite made up for it. The room was clean and very well maintained.

We spent 3 nights at the Waldorf, which we chose on based on the reviews here. This was easily the best hotel we've ever stayed at. We had booked a Waldorf King Suite, but upon check in were upgraded to a Gold Coast Suite. I'm not sure why, maybe because we're HIlton Honours members, but whatever the reason we weren't complaining. The room was phenomenal. It was 1200 sq. ft. and really was more like an apartment than a hotel room. We had a lovely bedroom, big bathroom with tv in mirror, and a living area complete with desk, table, lounge chairs, sofa, fireplace, and bar. Oh yah, and a powder room. There was a balcony, but we didn't use it as it wasn't very warm. The hotel location was great, just a block or two from the magnificent mile.
Our package included a $70 credit towards breakfast, and another $50 credit per night towards food or spa services. The $70 didn't quite cover breakfast for two (with eggs, juice, coffee etc.), but pretty close. With all of those credits it made the hotel terrific value compared to other hotels in the area.
The service was the best we have ever received. Anything we needed was brought to us within minutes. We used the car service once. It wasn't always available when we needed, but that was fine, as we were always quick to get a cab.
We never made it to the gym or spa, as we were busy during the day, but I'm sure they were both fabulous.
My only complaint is that we couldn't have stayed longer. We so enjoyed Chicago and this hotel, that we are eager to bring our kids back for a visit. We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. There was nothing not to love.

Room Tip: Try and get a breakfast package if you'd like to eat at the hotel
