We used the W-Lakeshore as a room block for your August 8, 2015 wedding weekend, and we are very glad that we did. Erwin Paderanga was our coordinator, and he was always so prompt to help with questions or reservation changes I had. They made it all relatively easy with their room block login page to keep track of who had booked their rooms, cancelling rooms if needed, and altering reservations as needed as well. My girls and I got ready the day of our wedding and my husband and I stayed in the W-Lakeshore's Marvelous Suite on our wedding night, and it was a spectacular room. 1.5 bathrooms, a huge lounging area, a mini fridge and wet bar area, huge comfy bed, and an amazing view of Navy Pier. The staff was always ready to help when we called for various items such as a cord to plug our android phone into the sound system, or to have someone take a look at the air conditioning unit. The only downside to our stay was that our air conditioning unit somehow froze over early in the morning and stopped working, making doing hair for the bridal party in the hotel room a bit difficult due to it being a bit uncomfortably warm. However, the staff assured us that once we left the room someone would be by to replace the entire unit with a working one, and it was cool and comfortable when my husband and I got there that night. When the staff came to clean up the room after my girls and I left, they included a hand written congratulations card and a bottle of champagne to toast our marriage. Very considerate and a nice touch for sure!
