Waldorf Astoria Chicago: One of the Best

0

The Waldorf Astoria Chicago Hotel Review is another post regarding all things Chicago. I used a Hilton Weekend Certificate which ended up being one my best redemptions.


Getting There: From O’Hare take the Blue Line into the city. Taxis are too slow and inefficient.

I’ve been a guest at three Waldorf Hotels including the mediocre Waldorf Dubai and the classic Waldorf Shanghai on the Bund. Besides the St. Regis New York, I have to boldly say that the second best hotel in the United States that I have stayed at is the Waldorf Astoria Chicago. The hotel is pristine, the service is impeccable, and the location is right in the middle of the action while simultaneously hidden in plain sight.

Staying at the Waldorf Chicago is more like going home, if the home happens to be an upscale apartment in the heart of a bustling metropolis. The staff treats guests like longtime residents and fellow guests feel like neighbors instead of strangers.

The Exterior 

The courtyard entrance of the hotel provided isolation from the busy Chicago streets. It had a Park Hyatt Buenos Aires feel.

The View

The view wasn’t the greatest but at least I got to see blue sky.

Overall 

It’s a shame I was only here for one night. This hotel sets the standard for quality not only in the United States but throughout the world.
