Waldorf Astoria Chicago - Chicago
disappointed property has slipped
I usually love the Waldorf Astoria Chicago but this time was disappointed. check in was as expected, but my junior sweet was time worn with a broken lock on the balcony door so I could not open the window for fresh air. Also the selection of movies was limited. The room service was adequate however the shrimp cocktail was inedible because it was so spicy. The thing that disappointed me the most was as a woman traveling alone with luggage the valets made no attempt to help me out of my taxi or assist with my luggage. When I left the valet got me a taxi but turned his back on me to help a guest parking her car (it was not busy and he was in the middle of helping me when he dropped me for the person with the car) leaving me to struggle to get my luggage in the car on my own. When I pay a premium for a suite like the one at the Waldorf I expect more than lip service but actual authentic service. Overall surprised and disappointed that one night could not have been handled with more grace.

Great all around
Fantastic stay. My wife and I were visiting for our anniversary and had seen that the Waldorf was supposed to be an excellent place to stay. It did not disappoint. The staff was very attentive and friendly, even sending a bottle of champagne to the room on them as a congratulations. Would highly recommend and hope to stay again.
