Expensive rates

This fashionable hotel on East Walton gathers acclaim from recent guests for its elegant design and prime location in Chicago's Gold Coast neighborhood. According to many travelers, you can't go wrong with a stay here – in large part because of the hotel's exceptional customer service. The Waldorf Astoria Chicago also wins favor from vacationing couples with unexpected amenities like in-room fireplaces, bathrooms with separate showers and tubs and double vanities with inset LCD TVs. For a quick bite to eat, the property has a pastry shop and the French-inspired Margeaux Brasserie. But if you're hankering for something more substantial than cafe fare, recent guests recommend exploring the Gold Coast's acclaimed restaurants and bars that are all within reach. And when you need a break from the Windy City's hustle and bustle, relax with a massage, a quick workout or a dip in the indoor pool at the hotel's Spa & Health Club. Because of its ties to the Waldorf Astoria brand, this hotel allows members of the Hilton Honors rewards program to accrue or redeem points.
