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.

Visitors can also wander down to the shores of Lake Michigan – Oak Street Beach is only a few steps from the Westin.

Spring Break with Teens

I arrived at the hotel around 8 in the morning and was able to check right in without waiting or additional charge. The hotel is comfortable and centrally located but no wow factor.

Nice hotel

The hotel was in a perfect location for shopping. Very nice and clean. Very busy. Only complaint was we checked in at 6pm and almost had to wait for a room to be cleaned. They need more housekeeping help.

Excellent location

The hotel is very well located. Good rooms And responsive staff. The breakfast (hotel connected restaurant) could be better. Valet service is slow.

Windy City

The staff were very nice and helpful. Our room wasn't quite ready when we arrived but they upgraded us at no cost to the "preferred guest" floor. We had a basket of apples in the corridor, which was nice. Our room was tidy but quite dusty. When we closed the door to our room it looked like they forgot to sweep behind the door. It was quiet so nice for sleeping. We stopped into the hotel restaurant and they people there were wonderful, drinks were good and the food delicious.

Love the Westin

We had a wonderful stay! The friendly staff checked us into our room early. The rooms are spacious, clean and beautiful. We were able to get our car on two occasions with only a two minute wait. We will always stay at the Westin, we love the location, 1 block from Watertower and great shopping.

Try the Restaurant/Bar at the top of the Hancock (95th or 96th floor) for a drink or a meal and some breath taking views!
