Ate breakfast there every day during our stay. Very good but not cheap. Typical of a higher end hotel. Was going to have dinner there once but hated the limited dinner menu.

I liked the breakfast choices, which were varied and healthy. It would be nice to have a separate children's menu though. The pancakes were delicious.

Patrick was amazing! We had a large group celebrating a bachelorette party and he went above and beyond to take care of our group and was a greta start to our night!

Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy
Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of
restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities.
You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the
docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the
captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you
enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you
can also visit other popular attractions there such as

Located at W Chicago at Lakeshore, WAVE combines the luster of a sleek urban atmosphere with the finesse of a restaurant grounded in culinary exploration. Executive Chef Greg Elliott showcases seasonal farm to table cuisine with Italian and French influences. With its bold flavors and stunning backdrop (Lake Michigan and Navy Pier are just steps away), it is no surprise that WAVE is a go-to for both locals and travelers alike.
