We just returned from a 3 night stay at the Westin Michigan Avenue. The hotel has a great location on the northern end of Michigan Avenue. It is in easy walking distance to all the shoppping on Michigan Avenue. There are a number of bus stops around the hotel that will take you to all the major museums and zoo. Also their is a train stop only a few blocks southwest of the hotel.
The room we stayed in had a view of Lake Michigan. The room was very clean and seemed to had been updated recently. The bed was great, as always. The bathroom was just ok, but very clean. My son loved the oversized tub. The lobby area is very small and during peak check-in or check-out times it is difficult to get through to the elevators. We did not eat in the hotel restuarant, but did order room service one night. The food was normal room service food - overprice, cold, soggy.
We did receive excellent service while at the Westin. Everyone employee that we came in contact with was very friendly and helpful.
A few other notes, parking is now $41 a night. We had a hard time finding restaurants near the hotel that was kid-friendly and non-fast food. There is a Cheesecake Factory just across the street, however it was always packed. We finally found a great area, just northwest of the hotel. There is a Jonny Rockets, a begal place, Starbucks, Pizza, Conner Bakery, and a number of other restuarants in that direction. That area also is home to a small grocery store.
