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!

Fantastic

This hotel is fantastic! Great location, walkable to Michigan Ave shopping and Millenium Park as well as many bars and resturants. The Concierge was absolutely wonderful, giving almost flawless directions and great suggestions too (Thank you [...]). Everyone was very polite and eager to serve you. I will definitely stay here again!

Very hip and chic hotel. Very contemporary.

I enjoyed my stay at the Westin. All of the features were gorgeous. This hotel was centrally located and within walking distance of lots of eatiers and historic sites. I didn't need a car or feel the need to take a taxi. I did have guests stay over and was unaware of the VERY expensive valet service, I'll know not to have that happen again.

This hotel is seconds from the lovely Chicago River. There is an off-street entrance and also an entrance from the hotel. I spent many day and nights watching boaters go up and down the river. This river and its historic vibe reminded me of Paris' Seine River

Very clean and in a nice location

The Westin North River was very comfortable. The rooms were very clean with nice features such as marble floors and counters in the bathroom and a new flat screen TV. There was a nice view of the river and in a central location on the North loop.

Flawless Service

The Westin at River North in Chicago is a great place to stay. Right off the Magnificent Mile, it is convenient to the CTA ( public transportation ). The hotel staff could not do enough for you - every request I had was courteously respondedto immediately. The daily brunch is good value for the money ( around $ 20.00 ) It is very peaceful and quiet. The rooms were immaculate and the ambience encourages relaxation......
