“Great Hotel and Gym is Fantastic.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

I stay at this hotel every time I am in Chicago.
Always a great experience.
Sam, the fitness manager, is outstanding and so is the gym.
The rooms are nice, location is great and service is terrific.
I look forward to my next trip and will for sure stay at the Westin again.

Was worried about bringing family to business hotel, but it couldn't have been better. The staf was sharp, crisp and friendly. The rooms were gret, spacious, clean and well appointed. The amenities and location were perfect

Front desk, bell and F&B staff very well trained

Only criticism is the concierge was a little less friendly or genuine than you'd expect.

Girlfriend getaway hotel. We stayed here from getting it on Priceline. Beautiful, happening place for young people. Great bar on top. Not fond of the bathroom setup. You hear everything going on because there is a wood slatted window open to the bed area that you can be doing your business and talking to anyone out in the other room. Awkward! Not sure on the purpose of this. Does close but does not close out noises at all. Overall, nice place

I was here for under 12 hours on a quick business trip... the room was fine - not worn but nothing special either. The TV was updated - flat screen etc. There was free coffee in the lobby and a car service that took me to the airport for a price a bit over a taxi. I will definitely stay here again since I'm an SPG loyalist!

My husband and I stayed three nights for a college sporting event. We were upgraded as well as agree with MKS001 on the room. The location is great and the staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: The river view rooms are spacious, comfortable with a beautiful view of the river.

Really nice hotel. I would feel comfortable picking any westin and not be disappointed. The Chicago river north hotel is really pretty, nice size room, clean, comfortable bed, attentive staff, great location, etc. I went with a friend who is westin loyalty member ( whatever it's called) and they really treat their loyal members well! I would come again as westin is a reliable upscale hotel establishment.
