Waldorf Astoria Chicago
Our stay was really a pleasant one and very enjoyable
Neda, gb5 night family trip
Waldorf Astoria Chicago
Always an amazing hotel to stay at.
Jon, us1 night trip
Waldorf Astoria Chicago
wonderful stay
The staff is there to pamper you without accepting gratuities. The staff was amazing and the location was perfect for walking wherever you need (you will be walking since parking is nearly impossible without using valet services throughout the city) and if walking is not for you, they offer a car service for dropoffs. The beds and pillows were not as comfortable as we would have expected, but overall worth it.

Amazing Christmas stay!
The hotel is beautiful and the service was amazing.

Waldorf Astoria Chicago
Best Hotel in Chicago
I was born and raised in Chicago but moved to NYC after college. I now return to The Windy City every month for about 2-5 days for business. I only stay at the Waldorf. From the consistent high quality service, comfortable beds, well- maintained rooms, delicious breakfast, desireable location and all the comforts of home for the business traveler, this is the place for me! I've tried the Four Seasons and Penunsula- didn't live up to the same level for me.
