One of many Westin hotels across the US, the Westin Michigan Avenue Chicago greets you with a dramatic sweeping staircase, soaring marble columns and glittering, modern light fixtures. But it's not just a pretty picture; handy features like flexible workspaces ('Tangent') and free Wi-Fi in the lobby are on offer for businesspeople staying in Chicago. After you've feasted on all the pan-fried fish and fillet steaks you can manage, sip an after-dinner coffee at The Grill on the Alley, overlooking the melee of the Magnificent Mile below. Catch up on your favorite shows while you're on the Stairmaster at the WestinWORKOUT 24-hour gym, or make your exercise more social, with regular evening classes like yoga or a running club.

Sitting right on Michigan Avenue – Chicago's famed Magnificent Mile – The Westin Michigan Avenue Chicago is across from the Hancock Center, home to the John Hancock Observatory, as well as a number of familiar chains like The Cheesecake Factory restaurant. Get to the Museum of Contemporary Art within minutes, or head directly south along the Mile to get to The Loop, the city's business district, south of the river. Visitors can also wander down to the shores of Lake Michigan – Oak Street Beach is only a few steps from the Westin.

If you're coming to Chicago with children, check out the perks of the Westin Kids Club during your stay. Younger guests get treats and night-lights in their goody-bag on arrival, as well as a healthy supply of Band-Aids.

Don't miss the LEGO Store either; it's right across the street from the Westin Hotel Chicago at the Water Tower Place.

Love the Westin

We had a wonderful stay! The friendly staff checked us into our room early. The rooms are spacious, clean and beautiful. We were able to get our car on two occasions with only a two minute wait. We will always stay at the Westin, we love the location, 1 block from Watertower and great shopping.

Try the Restaurant/Bar at the top of the Hancock (95th or 96th floor) for a drink or a meal and some breath taking views!

Great hotel in a great location

Walking distance to a lot of attractions. A little bit crowded; several events happening in the city that weekend. A little expensive but good value given the location, amenities & the dates we stayed.

Time-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

Cabs are relatively inexpensive, but they add up quick, depending on the distance. Suggest to walk to all the places within a mile (there are A LOT), which should be < 15 min, and take cabs to all other places.

Good Location

The room was clean.... The shower did not drain, the elevator was right by the room great for walking with bags bad for being in room and having quiet, and the bed was hard.

Westin Michigan Ave.

Put 'Do not disturb' sign on door as we were jet lagged. Was sleeping with my husband and the man who replaces missing items in the bar, ignored the sign and put his key in the door and opened it anyhow. Was told luggage would be sent up to room while we were eating so it would be there before we got up, it was not there when we got up. Dispite the fact that we went to the desk and left a tip in an envelope for the man we were told that took it up. Then he promptly delivered it afterwards but made a fuss that he went to the front desk to claim his tip and couldn't find it. Was more concerned that he didn't think he was getting a tip than actually doing the job! He did in fact get the envelope which was being held at the front desk by another agent. Had to call three times to get a new iron delivered. The girl that checked us in said she would send one up and didn't. Called the room service people and they said they would send one up and didn't. Spoke to a cleaning lady in the hallway and she said she would have one sent up right away and didn't. Finally called down annoyed at the service express and had one sent up.

great location and value

Fantastic Location ; Excellent Value ; Room Very Clean ; Beautiful Lobby ; Greatly appreciated complimentary juice, cookies and fruit found in lobby area ; Staff very nice but could have been more helpful (concierge info / accuracy and parking / car pick-up instructions / etc.) Yet, I'd still give this hotel a "4.9" star rating.
