Location: Our room overlooked the river. The hotel is perfectly situated to explore the sights. We walked easily to the Art Institute and shopping on the Magnificent Mile. Tons of bars are near this hotel, and the House of Blues is across the street, but with our family we had to walk a distance to get to some good restaurants... More

We've stayed in better places for far less then what we paid to stay here. The only reason we stayed here was because we were in town for a wedding and this is where the majority of the people attending were staying and this is where the shuttle pick up was for the ceremony. The doormen were super friendly and... More

Very nice property, but pricy $$$$. The bellmen service was very good with added information from them that we didn't think about. We arrived early and they were more than gracious storing our luggage. On the downside, for the price think one would deserve a queen size bed rather than just a full. Good restaurants in the area.

Stayed there for a wedding the first weekend of October and thought it was a very nice hotel. We were new to Chicago and the Concierge was very helpful on setting us up with some reservations and offering us advice on some things to do. Rooms were great. Bar/lounge was a nice setting,. service was adequate. A little spendy though.... More

This hotel is well located with quick access to the Theater District, the House of Blues (nightlife), Magnificent Mile (shopping) and a plethora of other sites in the city. The concierge was extremely helpful and the room impeccably clean. I would easily stay here again. The property has a beautiful courtyard just off the lobby where one can read or... More

Was very happy with our stay at this Westin. We requested to be moved to a king size bed and was upgraded to a better room with a much better view of the city's riverway. We even got to see the bridges open and close on Saturday and the Marathon on Sunday. Chicago was the place to be on Columbus... More

It is in a perfect location and the hotel is in great shape. They do need to update the power outlets and make them available near the bed. The staff recognized my SPG status and upgraded my room. The seminar I attended there was staffed by really nice and hardworking employees. Not a bad word to say about this place.... More

Located on the canals near the bridges. Lower level rooms have great views of the river but traffic on the bridge will keep you up all night. Staff is very nice and helpful. Well maintained. Can walk to most major sites.
