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.

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.

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.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

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

Needs to be refreshed

Location was great. Room furnishings, decor a little tired; could be updated. Bathroom floor areas not clean with visible debris, damage to ceiling and areas below basin. Staff fairly friendly but not to the point of making the type of impression that grabs you back.

under expectation

My room was arranged at 4th floor. The room was too small for a king size bedroom. The restroom was so noisy that the water supply system was always running. But the location is so good, just near Macy's.

Couple's Mini Thanksgiving Vaca

The staff was very helpful and willing to call restaurants for us, hail a cab, restock items, etc. The hotel was very clean and the room had almost everything needed, except a mini-fridge and microwave. Besides that, the hotel was beautiful and in the heart of the city. That is the hotel's best feature: location! We were able to walk anywhere in the city and had an amazing view of the exciting Christmas cheer and decorations!

Be sure to check out the charming diners and dives just around the edge of the city. It may cost a few bucks in cab-fare, but the savings and portions are worth it!!

GetAway Weekend

The Westin never fails to please. The staff is always charming and eager to assist. The housekeeping is consistent and happens without question. Of course in a hotel this size, you feel a little crowded but that is to be expected. Will return.

Poor Customer Service

While the hotel is beautiful and very clean, I was shocked by the total lack of customer service. They wouldn't valet my car because I didn't need help with my bags. Instead I was directed to the parking garage down the street. The next morning, we needed a cab. We were told to walk to Michigan Ave. because we would be able to get a cab more easily. Are you kidding me?!?! On top of it, we had to pay $60 to park!!! I live in Chicago and have NEVER had to pay that much to park overnight. I will NEVER stay at this Westin again, and I would recommend you don't either.

Great girls getaway

All the ladies in my family stayed here one weekend for a spa getaway. We loved the location which was walking distance to the shops and the rooms were really nice with comfortable beds. We had a great time at the spa although the spa was a bit smaller than expected.
