We enjoyed a beautiful view looking south down Michigan Ave from our 9th floor recently refreshed room (loved the bright corridors and the well lighted bath and bath mirror!) The hotel was convenient to everything we wanted to do and we really enjoyed our visit. Thank you!

stayed there for 6 nights at a conference. Check in was fast and friendly. Room was clean and quiet. I had room 607 which I don't recommend, no view of anything special and people in an office across the street looking I on you day and night. Kept my curtains closed. Location was great and the staff was helpful

My friend and I arrived late at night after a harrowing taxi ride from the airport. When we entered the room there was a distinct odor of cigarette smoke and we talked back and forth about whether or not we should request a different room knowing that the hotel was fully booked. In the end I tried to call the... More

The location is hard to beat. It's literally just across the street from the 360 Chicago observation deck and in immediate walking distance to the museum of contemporary art and countless shopping venues, including all the luxury brands. The hotel as such is good, however, as in many other world cities like New York or London, space is precious. Meaning,... More

The reason I title the review this way is the fact that they are promoting a remodel this spring (the sign in the lobby says May, but it's definitely a little ways out even for Starwood preferred rooms - but does look like it'll be great when it comes finally). The picture on Trip Advisor depicts the renovation goals, not... More

This is a fantastic location. Based on the other reviews, the renovated rooms sound great but I did not receive one of them (I am at the standard level of Starwood Preferred Guest). In stark contrast to the renovated room description, the old rooms are in poor condition and far from worthy of the Westin brand. Three indicators: old light... More

Before the renovation this was a basic business hotel with a great location but now, it is a top flight property. New rooms are much nicer and the game changer is that they now have a club lounge which is a great addition. Staff is energized. Very nice - keep up the good work!!

The location is very convenient to Michigan Ave Shopping, Restaurants, and Tourist Activities. As long as you're not planning to spend a lot of time in your room, and don't care about the view this hotel will provide a good home base for your trip to Chicago.

Staying in Magnificent Mile

Neighborhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
