I had to wait quite awhile to get a government rate at this hotel, but I finally succeeded with only a few days left to go before my conference. At government rate, this is an exceptional hotel. At the typical rate, it's a very nice Westin but nothing outstanding about it. Location is as good as you can find in... More

Just back from a quick weekend stay. It's a standard Westin and everything was as expected. Clean, attractive room (although the carpet needs replacing), the usual Heavenly amenities, friendly staff, efficient taxi stand, strong wifi in the lobby, terrific location at the north end of Michigan Avenue shopping. It's well run and a good value. Highly recommended.

Just returned on Sunday from a great stay at the Westin on Michigan Ave in Chicago and was very pleased with its great location. We had a standard room but found it to be plenty big enough and the "Heavenly" bed and shower were great. The room rate was a bit steep but considering we booked last minute and many... More

Been a few years since I used this hotel weekly, but I always appreciated the location. Close to lots of food, shopping and my client. Attached restaurant has lots of character and good food. You have to get one of the larger rooms. The small ones are unbearable. I don't remember the food littering the hallways but sounds like that... More

I think the Westin hotel in the luxurious Magnificent Mile is wonderful. My girlfriend and I stayed at the hotel for a week during the Taste and 4th of July. The hotel was by far one of the cleanliest hotels I have ever seen and the staff was great. I think the Westin has the best concierges in the business... More

This hotel seems to be so heavily used and booked that they can't keep it running. I was there June 22-26 for a conference, and saw many areas where detail was lacking. The worst (smelliest) was that room service debris (carts, trays with half-eaten food) was on the 11th floor for over 24 hours before being cleaned -- I even... More

My wife and I stayed in this Westin for a long weekend along with our two young children. Overall, I was very pleased with this hotel. While I was using SPG points for this stay, I think I would have been just as pleased if I had paid the standard rate. The hotel is well located on Michigan Ave just... More

We came into Chicago for three days to see the Cubs-Redsox game, and the Westin was the perfect hotel for us. Only a 5-10 minute cab ride to Wrigley Field. Definitely book a deluxe room, it is worth (i stayed in a corner deluxe room, but saw the standard rooms-they are MUCH smaller). The lobby, hallways and general atmosphere of... More

I have stayed at this hotel several times, and for a hotel of this size it manages service that's both efficient and friendly. I was on a business trip, and was grateful for the good beds and generally quiet atmosphere that helped me sleep well. The new, 2-room gym is ugly, but well-equipped. I enjoyed the Grille restaurant, and also... More
