Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Hip, trendy decor, with dark wood accents, and lots of deep reds and browns
  • Nice rooftop bar with great views
  • Beautiful indoor pool
  • Walking distance to many tourist attractions
  • Great views of Lake Michigan
  • Fun extras, such as a "Wheels" program, a free car service within five miles
  • Bliss spa on-site, and Bliss products in all bathrooms

Cons

  • Pricey fee for Wi-Fi
  • Lacks the wow factor of some other Chicago luxury hotels

Bottom Line

Since our visit, this property has been renovated. We are planning on revisiting and will update our review and photos as soon as possible. The 520-room W Chicago - Lakeshore delivers the chic decor you'd expect from a W, and the impressive features: a spacious gym, a stylish indoor pool, a Bliss spa, and absolutely stunning views of Lake Michigan and Navy Pier (check out the terrace!). The "Living Room," or the lobby area, is bright and comfortable, and has a bar/lounge area.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Located in Streeterville, just a short walk or drive from multiple tourist attractions

Sandwiched between Lake Michigan and the rest of the Streeterville neighborhood, several drinking and dining options are within a short walk, as well as various tourist attractions in Chicago. Neighboring Navy Pier offers plenty of festivals and fairs during the summertime, and the shops of the bordering Magnificent Mile on Michigan Avenue are always a popular pick.

Streeterville is one of Chicago's most affluent neighborhoods, with renowned restaurants and luxurious condos lining its streets. It's a great base for exploring the rest of the city: The neighborhood sits across the river from the Loop and Millennium Park, and most of Chicago's top tourist attractions are within walking distance.

  • 25-minute drive to Chicago O'Hare International Airport
  • 5-minute walk to Pfc Milton Olive Park
  • 8-minute walk to Navy Pier
  • 10-minute walk to various shops and restaurants on Michigan Avenue
  • 15-minute walk to John Hancock Observatory
  • 5-minute drive to Wrigley Building
  • 5-minute drive to The Loop business district
  • 5-minute drive to the Art Institute of Chicago
  • 5-minute drive to Grant Park
  • 7-minute drive to Lincoln Park
