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.

Neighborhood
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.
Hints and tips
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.

Take the double decker bus tour, the pass is good for three days and it's a great time. Bus runs every 10 minutes and it's a great way to see the city.

Perfectly located on the Magnificent Mile

The entire experience with the staff at the Westin was lovely. Everything thing about my stay was spot on. The Westin is centrally located to shops and restaurants in the Magnificent Mile. The Rush Street area is just a short 5 minute walk. The area is very safe, and well policed. VERY tourist friendly. I heartily recommend the Westin!

Windy City

The staff were very nice and helpful. Our room wasn't quite ready when we arrived but they upgraded us at no cost to the "preferred guest" floor. We had a basket of apples in the corridor, which was nice. Our room was tidy but quite dusty. When we closed the door to our room it looked like they forgot to sweep behind the door. It was quiet so nice for sleeping. We stopped into the hotel restaurant and they people there were wonderful, drinks were good and the food delicious.

Low end hotel for a high price

The Westin in Chicago doesn't even compare to the one in Seattle. Shoddy furniture and a desk that had stains on the underside of the glass top. Really? Who gives this place a 4 star rating? I was charged $77 for a day's parking. And $30 for the internet for just one day. There was no breakfast or anything early in the morning. Room service may or may not answer unless you try at least 5 times.

Perfect Location

Booked this hotel for overnight getaway. The location is excellent. But there is nothing extraordinary about the property itself. The building is old, carpets on hallways look old..nothing special.

getaway weekend

friendly staff and clean but ordinary room. The TV had some issues with cutting out a bit and the toilet was slugggish but for the comparative dollar, its location more than offset any minor inconveniences.

Wonderful time

Excellent service and close to many attractions. We went to Up Comedy club which was close. There was an excellent cafe around the corner where we ate breakfast. The hotel is close to shopping and there are many amenities available while staying at the Westin.
