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.

Westin Michigan Avenue

The hotel was fine but during our stay a hotel staff member let themselves into our room without a knock. I let the employee at the front desk know and never heard back from them. I wonder how often this happens and nobody ever knows because they are out of the room. I would not leave anything valuable in the room.

Quick stay in chicago

I stayed at the Westin for a short stay in Chicago while I was visiting my girlfriend. The staff were very friendly and offered to sign me up for the SPG program which gave me free wifi access. The room was clean, and well furnished. I have to give special mention to the shower which was very cool, hard to describe, but trust me it was an awesome shower, you kind of have to see for yourself. All in all a good experience.

Perfect location and quite nice hotel for the price

Great location set in the Near North Neighborhood of Chicago. Right across from the John Hancock Building, adjacent to the Mag Mile, the hotel makes for a great launching point with quick access to the Red Line and the Oak Street Beach. Sure there are things I could nitpick over, say the carpet was a little dated, the AC sure didn't feel like it quite got down to the temperature we set it to but the room was still very clean, the bed comfortable, the staff friendly and accommodating, and the view down one of Chicago's grand boulevards was awesome. The hotel met our expectations for the price we paid. We would certainly stay her again.

Beautiful weekend in Chicago

The bed was fantastic and the location very convenient. The suite door in our room did not block out noise from the 4 teenage girls staying next door. We decided to try the Westin after staying at the W, and the two do not compare. The W was the same price at the time of booking, and it has much nicer amenities, a more recent facelift, and a gorgeous lake view.

Westin Stay

Hotel was centrally located to everything. Staff was responsive. Room size was wonderful. My only concern was the air temperature in the room. It really never felt cold and was humid in the room, leaving that wet sticky feeling. Other than that, it was a great stay.
