The first address in the Second City is W Chicago - City Center. Located in the heart of Chicago's Loop - the city's financial and business hub - W Chicago - City Center puts you at center stage for work and play. The hotel, like the city itself, is part homage to the past, part vision of the future. The dramatic, soaring interior embraces the past with ornate columns and cathedral ceilings, contrasting with the fresh new look and feel of our Living Room and our signature full-service restaurant, IPO.
IPO showcases New Urban Cuisine and Contemporary American flavors. Housed in the W Chicago City Center, IPO offers signature small plates and captures the elegant energy of the hotel's 1928 beaux-arts architecture. With the bustle of the financial district, millennium park and theatre district as its backdrop, the space is dipped in a downtown decadence.
