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.

Great for a weekend trip!

We stayed at the Westin for a girls' weekend getaway. Great location, excellent service. They even let us stay in our room until 3pm on Sunday to accommodate our later flights. No complaints.

Weekend Getaway

A group of us came to Chicago for a bachelor party and decided on the Westin. There was a bit of a line when we checked in, but fortunately one of our rooms was available in the morning despite the hotel being booked solid. The staff was very nice and there's a good bar in the lobby. Best of all, the location was within walking distance of all the places we needed to go.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

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.

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.

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!

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.
