Letting go...seriously...let go

A travel blog entry by wanderfuluster

... about this says the same thing: "If you can take some significant time off and travel, you should definitely do it while you can and when you're single because once you're married/start having kids, forget it until retirement." If we even get retirement. The way this country is rolling I'll be able to retire at the ripe old age of 92 with my current retirement fund that has now earned just enough to let me survive for about a month on ramen noodles.

Great America showing us the heights and the stars

... straight out the window as we soon realised we might not make it the forty minute drive home without falling asleep.

The Adler Planetarium on Museum Campus is worth a trip even if you don't go inside, simply for the breathtaking view of Downtown Chicago from its front door. However, the eight dollar admission is well worth paying. Three or four hours is plenty of time to stroll around the exhibitions inside, and we ...

Deep Dish Pizzas!

... waiting any longer. But what an amazing choice; best food we've both had in a while and our energy was restored so we could start exploring Chicago!

We head for the famous Millennium Park; a state-of-the-art collection of architecture, landscape design and art. We stayed out late, taking pictures of everything until finally retiring back to the hotel to get some rest so we could explore more the next morning.

We get up early and hit up the first Dunkin Donuts ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews W Chicago Lakeshore

    Good service hit and miss


    We went there for our fist anniversary, and had a huge mixup with a bottle of champagne I ordered ahead of time for my husband. After waiting for 2 hours, and calling the concierge several times, the champagne arrived. They said it was on the house, and sorry for the trouble, but still charged us for it (on our credit card). Otherwise, it was fun to lounge with the beautiful people, but you got sick of it after awhile because you needed a whole face of makeup on just to go to the lobby. LOVED the room. LOVED the bed. Very feng shui oriented, very comfotable and comforting. GREAT location too!

    Stay some where eles!!!


    Don't waste your time! Hotel is OLD and Dark. Dark, Dark. Rooms are very small with olny a shower. Parking was near $40.00 a day. The beach across the highway with no path to get you there. The Hallways were lined with lint and paper. Save your money and time and go to the Marriott.

    Very Hip W


    This is not your average hotel. Asian inspired decor yet very comfortable. The feather beds and pillows are to die for but remember to turn down the temp- they get very hot. The shower is one of those rain-type showers which I don't prefer and the bathrooms have slatted doors which are lacking in the privacy department. However, the service was friendly and prompt. The much talked about Whisky Sky bar on the top floor was a very busy, very small but good drinks. Good location-next to Navy Pier and only about 10 min walk to Michigan Ave shops. Overall nice hotel but very expensive-even down to the bottled water-only Norway's Voss spring water available at $4-$8.

    Not for Children/Families


    This well-maintained ultra-hip hotel is great for The Beautiful People who frequent it -- but not for families with children. It's a long walk from the attractions on Michigan Avenue (Nike, American Girl, Disney, etc.) and it's clear that children are not welcome in the pool area (where people seem always to be doing laps or lounging, and they're not averse to telling children to be quiet!). The rooms are tiny (showing the Days Inn earlier incarnation of the property) and not enough space for more than two persons. Bathrooms are small as well (and one can see from the bathroom to the bedroom though the slats in the blind). The lines for elevators at peak times are frustrating, and the restaurant is not a place you'd want to take the kids for a burger and fun. The candy (and condoms) are not locked up in any mini-bar -- they're just there for kids to grab. A box of Oreo cookies is $6.50! It's a fine place for mature guests -- almost like a stylish club. The fact that Intimacy Kids are sold in the room says something about the intended clientele.

    Night Club or Hotel?


    I would have to say our overall stay at the hotel was very pleasant.

    What a SCAM


    I reserved a room online for ONE night, for New Years Eve, when we went to check-in I was told at the front desk that our reservations MIGHT have been canceled over the phone. I had not canceled the reservation.



    I have to say this was the most amazing hotel I have stayed in. The W was ultra trendy, but not in a disgusting way but enough so that you know you are getting your money's worth. Also, the bed was the most comforttable bed. Definitely not your average hotel bed, the beds at the W have feather beds, down blankets, and down pillows. This hotel was fun and comfortable.

    Great view of the lake and convenient location!


    Stayed in a lovely room overlooking the lake. Only a 5-10 minute walk to Navy Pier or Michigan Ave shopping. I had 3 pre-teen nieces with me and they thought it was very hip...wouldn't recommend as a 'family' place though. Caters to young and trendy party crowd. Getting to our room on upper floor was a pain on weekend nights with long lines of people waiting for elevator up to bar. We had people who were drunk and obnoxious on the elevator and outside our room at 3 am. Hotel staff provided excellent service.

    Overpriced & Over-Rated


    We booked over a week in advance and called again to confirm, yet there was not a room available for us when we arrived. We had to settle for another room (not what we wanted) and waited for 45 minutes.

    Simply --wild--not your regular Holiday Inn


    Hotel --by day and a party by night --excellent service and great beds---the best beds....period--Actually turns into a party at night and people wait in line outside to goto the Whiskey Bar on the 33rd floor--don't worry about noise there was none--solid built and new wave rooms--plenty security, fast elevators and the best service..
