It's All In The Details
W Chicago Lakeshore was carefully designed to highlight our unmistakable views of the Windy City. Our Welcome Desk was designed from hammered copper, a nod to the old ship yard at Navy Pier. The rounded Living Room Bar is wrapped in more brushed metal, reflective materials, and an illuminated bar-top with a lighting system that produces the perfect glow that changes throughout the day to match the rising sun over the lake and sun setting behind the city. The glittering lake waters set the atmospheric tone against these materials, pouring in from the floor to ceiling windows that surround us.
