Waldorf Astoria Chicago Review

Two large, Greek-inspired sculptures greet guests as they walk through the entrance of this exquisitely designed hotel, where rooms start at 632 square feet and double in size if you're willing to spend even more. The elegant roms are furnished with platinum- and champagne-color palettes and textured wallpaper; and most of the marble-covered bathrooms have a deep soaking tub. The artwork is modern, but the atmosphere remains warm throughout. Also, there's no need to hand a bellhop a couple of bucks; this is a tip-free hotel.

  • Chicago and Where Else

    We've never been to Chicago other than changing planes.

    We'd like to go for a few days but that's a lot of flying to spend 3-4 days in one place.

    Any add-ons in the area?

    Thanks. Read more
