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.

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

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.

great location, good restaurant, mediocre rooms

Even staying on the SPG preferred guest floor - the hotel is a little dingy. Definitely not "marble baths" - its time for a little revamp of the property.

Weekend getaway

The location is ideal. The room was clean and an adequate size for 2 adults. The bathroom was very nice with a rain shower nozzle and a hand held sprayer. The mattress and pillow were VERY COMFORTABLE. Good value!

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!

Staying on the Maginificent Mile puts you in the heart of everything fabulous! It is a short walk but the exercise along with seeing all the city has to offer makes it all worth it.

Great Location

We really like Westin Hotels and this was no exception. The location is great. The staff was helpful. I only have two complaints - one is that parking is $59 a day. The other was that the hallway was extremely noisy. There were several families with children there together and they allowed the children to sprint up and down the hallway on Sunday morning at 9:00. We did complain to a staff person from housekeeping and he did ask them to stop.

If you want to get into a Rick Bayless restaurant and you do not have a reservation you can stand in line outside the restaurant and starting at 5:00 they will assign times. Most of the dining room at Frontera is for walk-ins, but get there before five if you expect to get a table. The food is fantastic
