Waldorf Astoria Chicago
About the Hotel
Why We Love This Hotel
- AAA 5-Diamond hotel in the posh Gold Coast neighborhood
- Suites feature fireplaces and marble bathrooms with soaking tubs
- Private Mercedes-Benz car service for drop-offs within 2 miles of the hotel
- Named the #1 Hotel in America by Conde Nast Traveler in 2015
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. It also feels like a secret 5-star hideaway, thanks to the private drive into the courtyard, keeping out the clamor of nearby Walton Street.
There are a few standard-level rooms, but most of the accommodations here are suites, starting at 630 square feet in the Junior Suite. All suites feature separate living areas, one-touch fireplaces, marble bathrooms, deep-soaking tubs and vanities with inset TVs, multiple 42-inch flat-panel TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi. Upgrade to a One-Bedroom Suite for a private outdoor terrace with views of the Gold Coast, and a Deluxe One-Bedroom for even more space to spread out.
Guests of the Waldorf Astoria receive access to the spa's indoor mosaic-tiled lap pool, fitness center, eucalyptus steam room, sauna and Jacuzzi. 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 hotel's restaurant, Margeaux Brasserie, is the city's first restaurant for James Beard award-winning chef Michael Mina. The restaurant, which earned a recommendation from the Michelin Guide as "one swank spot," combines locally sourced ingredients with the culture and feel of a Parisian cafe; Zagat also calls it one of the best French restaurants in Chicago.
