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.

Great staff

The front desk staff - and all the staff we dealt with, were very friendly and helpful. The bedding was beautiful, looked brand new and very comfortable. The addition of a chaise lounge was a fun touch. It would have been nice to have an empty fridge to keep water in instead of just the one stocked, which we weren't interested in. Location was great. We walked right out the door onto Michigan Avenue and could walk or catch the bus or trolley wherever we wanted to go.

everything we expected

The front desk was fabulous. She set the tone for our stay. The room was very clean and perfect for what we needed. The location of this Westin is great if you intend to go shopping. We really enjoyed our stay at the Westin and would definately recommend it.

people friendly

Facility was very clean and comfortable. Staff was cordial and pleasant. There was no suitcase stand. Upon checkout, I reported an extremely slow draining bathtub which caused alot of humidity in the room due to standing water after use. The location is good...within walking distance to the Lakeshore.

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.

One of my best hotel stays

I haven't stayed in a Westin in forever (mostly because of price). The price was right this time around, and the hotel is as good as i remember westin's to be. Very clean room, extremely comfortable bed. Really close to MM shopping and Gino's East for pizza.

Great Location-

We traveled to Chicago with a group of friends for a winter get-away.....The location was excellent for shopping, the theater, restaurants and a short bus ride to the museums. The rooms were very clean and wonderful linens. Perfect location for friends to gather for the weekend.
