Just completed a stay with my wife this past week for our anniversary. The Waldorf staff starting with the bellman, check in, restaurant staff were all very welcoming and excellent attention to details throughout our stay of 5 nights. We were given an upgrade to a large corner unit, whether for Diamond level or our anniversary, it was very welcomed and the room was immaculate. We used our dining credit for breakfast every morning, and the service was the best we had in Chicago all week. Definitely would recommend staying here, and we plan to again in the future.

Hotel's Favourite
Beautiful hotel and lovely amenities. The lobby is small and discreet, and the rooms are nice and comfortable. The bed is heavenly and the soaking tub a great way to unwind after a long day being a tourist in Chicago. They don’t have coffee makers in the room, instead they have complimentary coffee and tea service through in room dinning. Housekeeping team is top notch! The room was thoroughly clean and the daily service done to perfection. My only complain is that I had to leave :)

Beautiful! But don't stay on the 7th floor it is the bottom floor of rooms directly above the inner workings of the hotel ballrooms, meeting rooms, restaurants, etc. We had a corner suite so nice, so beautiful, so clean, and well appointed, but an elevator clanked and banged all day and night. What can I say we are light sleepers? It should be a lot quieter for the money, especially when coming from inside the hotel. When we go back, we will stay at the top!

Hotel has great location..service was not nearly as expected. 2:25 AM housekeeping on our door with bathroom amenities, really?? They had the wrong room number.. and we had a hard time getting back to sleep after we woke up startled, missed our next morning activities and front desk and manager just thanked us for our feedback!! Upon checking in tired from our trip, the room phone was not working and we had to go downstairs a couple of times since they didn't pay attention to our request for extra blankets. So if you’re looking for a hotel where you can rest, in our family’s experience.. I wouldn’t recommend it at all.

Thank you for your candid feedback, m0nicaae. We do take this to heart and on behalf of the team, I apologize for an experience that simply fell below expectation and very atypical of our hotel. I do hope we might redeem your trust and hope you might wish to connect with us to discuss this further should you feel so inclined, as we do wish to make this right. I remain at your service at judson.corrie@waldorfastoria.com

Beautiful suite, but the entrance door appeared to have been kicked in at one point and the door's wood under the inside locking plate showed fracture-cracks; door NEVER latched closed unless you physically pushed it closed from the inside or pulled it closed from the outside when you left the room. There were damage marks on part of the living room wall by the dining table. There were multiple fancy light switches throughout the suite; most had their labels rubbed off - so it took a few days to "learn" what was: all off, all on, all dim, etc. AND to learn what switches controlled what rooms. Breakfast quality in the restaurant was POOR, I say again: POOR. Breakfast food was never served hot, not really even warm. My waffles were so cold one day I physically walked the plate back into the kitchen; it was as cold as a day old cookie; later a manager comp'd the breakfast. I'd rather have paid to have had hot food timely delivered to the table. Doormen where always prompt to welcome you when you drove up, and opened the door but they were never insight to open the door when you were leaving the hotel with luggage or boxes in your hands. We turned down turn-down service as we wanted to sit on the sofa at night and not have had it all bedded out. The result was that no one ever delivered room service menus, except by accident one evening when they came to put linens on the sofa. The quality / consistency of human staff services did not make this a Luxury hotel with a cap "L". Luxury is more than just a lot of marble.

Thank you for your candid feedback, bocam2020. We will continue to constantly strive to offer the premier hotel choice in Chicago and do welcome all comments that may highlight areas where we did not impress. Our teams are tending to the particular details regarding room, staff & restaurant mentioned but we are proud to say a large-scale renovation of the hotel is nearing it's end and does hone into these areas. No detail too small. We do appreciate the kind words as well and will continue to strengthen areas where we do impress.

Hilton awarded me certificates for complimentary stays, so used two at the Waldorf Astoria in June 2022. As a Diamond member, I was upgraded to a corner room with a fireplace. Well, it was 98 degrees, so the fireplace was unnecessary (but I turned it on in the mornings to remove the chill). Concierge staff was exemplary ! Ernest had suggested the hop-on-hope-off bus that circles the downtown area. That was delightful ! Nest time, I'd get the multiple-day pass.

World-class customer service. It was a vacation and our party felt very special, from the room to the peacock cafe downstairs and everything in between. The turn down service every night went above and beyond expectations too. Location is ideal with easy access to shopping and dining.

What a reception for our anniversary. Champagne, room upgrade and my best friend. Slippers chocolate and a weekend with the phone turned off. Breakfast in bed and decompress on a comfy bed pillows and a beautiful woman. Our concierge Fikiv went over the top. Thank you Waldorf

I have stayed in W/A properties in several cities and countries. The Chicago Waldorf never ceases to impress! The service is impeccable. The rooms are elegant and spotless. (Jr Suite is worth the upgrade!). The new intimate Bernard's lounge serves amazing small-plates and top-shelf cocktails. Amenties - Amenties - Amenties plus location-location-location. Can't wait to go back.
