Awesome July 4th Views from My W Chicago – Lakeshore Room

These are some pretty fantastic views of Lake Michigan, but the view will be even better for tonight’s 4th of July fireworks celebration. I checked in and was upgraded this morning before 9am to a room on the 32nd floor (no suites were available). Pretty sweet vista upon entering…those boats are snagging spots for tonight’s show:

The trip was planned last minute so I didn’t even realize that the fireworks are set off right near the pier directly across the street. Even if your room has no view, the hotel has set up a special viewing area with a BBQ and cash bar for tonight. You can even bring up to two guests!

The room is great as well and the hotel just completed a $38 million dollar redesign…

Full trip report coming soon…

It’s actually a miracle that I even arrived. My flight yesterday afternoon from LGA to ORD was canceled as was almost every other flight to ORD by any carrier from any NYC airport…this is for another post but persistence pays off and I’m also shocked by one airlines lack of notifications and irregular ops recovery when compared to their two largest competitors. Anyway, instead of flying all day on this routing -> NYC-MCO-ORD, I was happy to secure myself a direct LGA-ORD flight at 230am for a flight less than 5 hours later. More on that next time.  Happy 4th to all!

  1. The water filtration plant looks pretty cool from that angle. (That’s not meant as sarcasm; I’m dead serious.)
