Very good 8.0
Not W standards
I was rather disappointed with the interior decor of the room I stayed in. I've been to the W in Doha, Barcelona and london and found when amazing and beautiful in every area. Cracked paint, poorly structured finishes in the bedroom and bathroom was very unacceptable. I wouldn't return to this location unless they update their rooms.

1st time in Chicago - 1st time in a W hotel.
Here in Miami the W Hotel has a very good reputation so I went with this hotel rather than my other choice. A week prior I left a request to be put on a high floor and to have a fridge. When I arrived I learned I was put in room 10 out of 22 and no fridge. I talked to the front desk employee and they were all very nice. I was offered a room 2 floors up (not a big difference so I turned it down) but the fridge was taken immediately. I liked that they give free water bottles because we did alot of walking. The room was clean but not really as it appears in the pictures. I really didnt like the fact that the tv, while big, isnt a smart tv. No netflix or youtube and the tv guide was outdated. They offer movies but they are $20 to watch. Free breakfast isnt offered but they have complimentary coffee. The location was also very good for getting the train and buses. Overall I was blown away with how nice the service was really, I know some things are out of the employees hands. Unfortunately I wouldn't stay at this hotel again since there are so many options, naturally I'd try something new but I would recommend it to someone for its location and good service.

Stay at the W
I thoroughly enjoyed the W Chicago. The lobby and rooms were really well decorated and trendy. The room was clean and a decent size for Chicago. The bar downstairs was a nice place to hangout and the location of the hotel was convenient for walking around the city.

Pay for WiFi?
Hated that they charge for WiFi. Who does that? Phone in room didn’t work to call reception. Room was ok, bah. Check-in and check-out really quick and efficient. Lobby bar crowded with people having drinks, probably fun.

Cool bar rooms just “fine”
The location and price were great. The room we were assigned was small and old with an unsuccessfully refurbished tub. Over all the room was “fine.” The bar and entry to it were very cool.
