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.

Great Location

The Westin is perfectly located for shopping and dining in Chicago. The lobby is not overwhemlming large, so a traveller will fill right at home when entering the hotel. The facility is currently undergoing restoration so there was some construction noise, but this will be very temporary.

Fantastic

Location was great. I couldn't have asked for anything more. I went up for business and flew my wife and daughter up on Friday to spend the weekend together. The drive from the airport (ORD) was not fun with all the traffic but the hotel itself was outstanding. Check-in was fast and easy. The room was comfortable. There is so much to do at ur finger tips. Directly across the street u have the John Hancock building where for $15 u can go to the 94th floor and enjoy the breath taking views of the city. The Water Tower mall is only a block away along many other shopping venues throughout the Mile. You can take a $10 cab ride to the Shedd Aquarium and enjoy a complete day in the area. You have the aquarium, The Field Museum, Planetarium, and Soldier Field within a block of eachother. You can also take another 2 mile cab ride to the Navy Pier and Children's Museum which is only located a mile from the Westin. There you can have a ton of fun. I recommend getting the Chicago Go Pass which covers entry fees to all the venues I just named. Also, within a mile of the hotel you have the Hard Rock, Al's Italian Beef (awesome sandwiches), Gino's East for great deep dish, and many more. For breakfast, u must go to Tempo Cafe. Great prices, food, people and service. That place was recommended by the door man Timmy who always had great suggestions. All in all, my stay was amazing. We even experience rain on our final day there however it wasn't ruined, the front desk provides all the guests with complimentary umbrellas. I will definitely stay there again.

Westin on Michigan Ave: good location for all

Great location next to American Girl and Water Tower/Macy's, & the Cheese Cake Factory between the two. Also, for night life a trip to the Hancock Lounge gives a great view of the city.

Christmas trip to see family in Chicago

This hotel was perfect. We were in the hub of everything. We could walk just about to any place and do lots of shopping. The staff was very friendly. Parking was a little expensive ($57 a night), but you expect that in the Chicagoland area. Otherwise, our hotel stay was absolutely wonderful.
