The 368-room W City Center features a funky blend of neoclassical and modern design styles: It has the beautiful marble and grandness of Beaux-Arts architecture, but with a dark, fantastical twist. Although some may find the disco-themed lobby (neon-lit desks included) exciting and young, others may think it's a bit over-the-top. Rooms are also contemporary, with modern lamps and faux-fur throws on the beds, as well as up-to-date technology, including large flat-screen TVs and iPod docks. The on-site restaurant — aptly named IPO as nod to the hotel's location in Chicago's financial district — serves chef Trevor Hoyte's so-called New Urban cuisine, a whimsical and intriguing bevy of dishes such as his chocolate and popcorn dessert with peaches, mint, brown butter, and corn sorbet. The Living Room area is popular for afterwork drinks and small bites with the 9 to 5 crowd. With a great downtown location, close to various shops, restaurants, and tourist attractions, the W Chicago - City Center is a great pick for young couples and professionals seeking a true cosmopolitan experience.
