“Great Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

This is the perfect Location on Michigan Avenue. Right across the street from John Handcock Bld, Macy's all the great shopping. We were SPG Gold members so was upgraded to a corner room which was very large, perfect with kids. Also 2 blocks from Lake Michigan, great running paths along the beach! The Hotel is working to get a club lounge which is the only reason I did not rate as excellent.

Room Tip: Corner room was very large

The Westin was a nice hotel, with a good location, agreat view and superior service. I selected the hotel because they were the sponsor hotel for a race I was running. The whole staff was kind and supportive to runners. The highlight of the stay though was Chris the running concierge. He was in town just for the race and there as a Weston staff member to specifically support runners. It is rare to meet someone so perfectly suited for their job. He gave us advice on everything from race day transportation to running tips. He answered our zillion questions only a group of four girls could come up with and was even there to great us with a smile a 5 am when we got a nervous too early start to the morning. I will seek out sponsor hotels for every race in the future, especially if they are Westins. Good hire Westin.
For the majority of people in Chicago not for a marathon or half...this is just one example of their excellent service.
May I advise you get the deluxe lake view...worth it!

Thank you to the wonderful staff! I was in town caring for a sick relative when he passed away, the staff was kind enough to accommodate us by keeping me in the same room and extending the stay when the hotel was sold out one night. Thank you again to the front desk staff and management.

Returning to the Westin as a Preferred Guest for a symposium was perfected with just a few appreciated perks: the complimentary bottled water, the free Wi-Fi and the late check-out. Not having to rush between sessions to check-out and drag the luggage about was priceless.

I was on a short business trip on my first visit to Chicago. All of the staff were terrific - very helpful and pleasant. The surrounding area is very clean & has many interesting historical places to visit. It's a tourist area and I felt safe enough to walk by myself in the evening. I would stay there again vs. San Francisco because it was free of creepy dirty obnoxious street people.

Room Tip: Not enough experience to judge this

We look forward to SPG hotels because of the heavenly beds. I think this Westin may be cutting corners. The bed was a bit of a hammock and the sheets were anything but heavenly. I think they've reverted to the 200 thread count sandpaper variety that are anything but heavenly.
Location is great and staff friendly but I think it is a bit of a rip-off to build a following on a feature and then cut corners on it.

Green Features: offered point in return from NOT servicing room. Great idea!
