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.

Not so heavenly beds..

Not that the bed was dirty but BOY was it hard as a rock! I booked at this hotel because I raved about the beds to my boyfriend and now he thinks I'm crazy. Other than that, a good place for the money.

Great Hotel

Every staff member I encountered was very professional and helpful. Perfect location for shopping and some "non-tourist-type" eateries.

Birthday Getaway

We were able to check in a little early and by doing so we were able to visit all the great sites of Chicago. We went to the Hancock which is directly across the street. We had to go to American Girl Doll Store and buy the newest doll. Had Dinner at Dikta's. Then took a short Cab trip to Navy Pier. Everything was Great!!!!! I am looking foward to going back in the Spring. The best thing about the trip is when My Daughter left her American Girl Doll book at the Hotel. The Hotel had it retrieved and was at the front desk for us to pick up the next day.

Girls weekend

My room was fine, comfortable and clean, but the staff were less than personable. I asked the concierge to call for our car and she told to go outside to the garage myself!

Great Hotel

Check in took a bit longer than I like because of airline staff but otherwise a great experience. Rooms are big - the Westin beds can't be beat. Great restaurant downstairs - Steakhouse. Used the gym: lots of equipment in good shape both cardio and weights. Breakfast cafe in the morning reasonably priced. Perfect location across from the Hancock tower.

NYE WESTIN

had to wait in line to check in for almost 20 mins as they had only one person at their front desk. Very poor staffing. Doormen in front do not hold open doors even though guests had their hands full with bags. Room itself was nice with large soft bed and great bathroom but needs a lock on the bathroom door.
