Why We Love This Hotel

  • Named the best hotel in America (Condé Nast Traveler Readers Choice Awards 2015)
  • Private Mercedes-Benz car service for drop-offs within two miles of the hotel
  • Suites feature fireplaces and marble bathrooms with soaking tubs 
  • Plenty of room to stretch out -- most rooms are at least 600 square feet


The Waldorf Astoria name is perhaps most associated with the iconic New York property just steps from Central Park, but it's the Chicago outpost that was literally named the best hotel in America by Condé Nast Traveler readers. When you look at the spacious rooms and amenities like a full spa, a personal concierge service and critically-praised cocktail bar, you start to understand why. 

Forbes Travel Guide calls the Waldorf "easily one of the most fashionable hotels in the city," with rooms that feature Parisian style from the contemporary silver-grey color palate to the in-room fireplaces to the private terraces. There are a few base-level standard rooms, but most of the accommodations here are suites, starting at 630 square feet up to the 3160-square-foot Presidential Suite on the 26th floor. All rooms feature marble bathrooms, soaking tubs and vanities with inset TVs, 42" flat-panel TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi. 

Guests of the Waldorf Astoria receive access to the spa's mosaic-tiled lap pool, fitness center, eucalyptus steam room, sauna and Jacuzzi and can arrange for a DreamDry blowout service at the hair salon. For a more private experience, in-room spa treatments can be arranged and services even extend to a bath menu that can be drawn for you with special oils and salts.

The on-site restaurant, simply called The Kitchen, serves breakfast, lunch, dinner and brunch featuring an American menu (and endless Veuve Cliquot can be ordered on the weekends). Bernard's Bar, the cocktail bar on the hotel's second floor, is "the hidden jewel within the Waldorf palace" (Time Out Chicago) with a well-thought-out cocktail bar and small bites.
