As expected!

The Westin is a great hotel. Very convenient location, very professional and friendly staff and amenities. Only complain was $54/day for valet parking. This is a bit over the top. If they are going to charge it, they should say so up front when you are making your reservation, since it is actually part of the price of the hotel.

Don't stay at this Westin!

Doorman frequently absent and doors were dirty. Toilet ran for 4 days, despite numerous requests to have it fixed-I had to take the top off myself every day to get it to stop. Called to leave a wake-up call, and no one every answered. Had to go down to the desk at midnight to take care of it. Keys repeatedly did not work, and my wife was refused access to our room for over an hour, even with proper identification. Clearly not a Westin experience I would care to repeat.

Great Central Location

This Westin definitely follows what you would expect in a Westin. Clean lines, modern luxury style rooms at a great price over fourth of July weekend. Beautiful view of the river and spacious for two people. The lounge was okay, but was a little disappointed that there were a few drinks not available. Overall, my fiance and I have stayed in a few Westins and this one definitely met our expectations. This is definitely a great place to stay within walking distance of a lot of attractions.

Park in the Aon building. You'll pay a fraction of the price that you would at any hotel. Just be prepared to hike several blocks to the Westin. Well worth the money savings!

Good with few minor flaws

Very close to main attractions and El train. Beautiful lobby and friendly staff. Service less than perfect: found a few items from the previous guest in chest drawers; extra bed was brought in, but left upright and tied (I had to move furniture and place it myself - they apologized for it); no wifi signal in my room (the wifi fee was waived).

When looking for a good restaurant, don't always look at the number of customers: they may be there because the restaurant is close to a theatre or other reasons. Check people's opinions online or ask trusted people.

Decent hotel

Overall, the Westin Riverfront is a good hotel. It is in a great location. The bed is comfortable with okay pillows and a great shower. Like most starwoods hotels, the service is excellent.My complaints are: You have to pay $10 to use the gym. I just think this should be included. [...] Lastly, the hotel hasn't been updated in a long time.

Shopping is very close. The restaurant options if you are not a fan of steakhouses are mediocre. There is a decent wine bar across the street. Bin 36.

Great price for a beautiful hotel

The hotel is in excellent condition and has a great staff. The room my girlfriend and I stayed in was clean, good sized, and had a beautiful view of the Chicago river. The location is perfect if you are looking to eat at the best restaurants which are all in walking distance.

We ate at a Mexican place called Mercadito which is only a block away. The food and drinks are very good and so is the price.
