Let me preface this review by stating that I did not actually stay at the hotel. My boyfriend stayed at the hotel for work. Before he arrived, I emailed that hotel and requested a surprise of chocolate covered strawberries in his room upon arrival. I faxed credit card authorization and was assured that all was in place. I even provided... More

The Westin was one of two hotels with blocked rooms for a wedding held last weekend. We reserved a room at the 'special rate' almost two months ago. My best friend came in from MI and we were looking forward to a girl's weekend in the city. Check-in time was 3 p.m., the wedding, at a venue 15 minutes away... More

This is a nice hotel. I came here with my husband for a quick trip. The staff at the front desk was nice and friendly and the room was clean, and had great views of the city. It is easy to get to and from O'Hare Airport. I like that The Westin has a green initative which is if you... More

I was here in February for a business trip and had had booked this one by mistake. I mistakenly thought they had the Shula's onsite, and was close to Michigan Ave (that was the Sheraton also a good sister property) It was one of the best mistakes I have made in a long time. The staff is warm, friendly and... More

I came to Chicago a few days earlier to my business trip to enjoy the sights and take in the culture. I usually and try to stick with Starwood Hotels since I do the majority of my business trips with them.

Spent the weekend here with my wife and several other couples. I was particularly pleased with the friendly and accommodating staff working in the valet, front desk, room-service and wait staff at the lobby bar. The room was very clean and comfortable. The view on the river side was wonderful day and night. We even got to see a helicopter... More

Spent two days here at Westin for business trip. I requested a river view online and I did get it! Very nice view. Room was clean and nice. Love the marble bathroom design. It's also very convenient to walk to surrounding restaurants and shops. Staffs here are all very nice as well!

Not a horrible place, but.... This hotel is obviously old and renovated when you enter the rooms. The original outlet behind the night stand in my room (316) appeared slightly out of alignment. One lamp had the bulb sitting at an angle. I put it back in its place, but I don't know when these potential electrical hazards will cause... More
