Stayed here for one night on a quick trip to Chicago. The hotel was an excellent price considering it was Lollapalooza weekend and everything in the city was booked or expensive. The downtown Westin location was charging $529 a night!
We did rent a car from O'Hare and it only took about 15 minutes to get to the hotel. Just a few exits up on the Interstate from the hotel, there were a few, upscale restaurants where we ate before heading downtown to see a concert which took about an hour because of traffic.
The room was huge. The carpet looked gross and because it was a light celery color, the spots showed and it definitely could have used a cleaning. I didn't feel comfortable walking barefoot around the room. The bathroom was decent but can only fit one person at a time. Standard Westin, comfortable beds.
The elevators are disgustingly slow. Because there were several events going on here, people were going up and down floors continuously so expect to wait for a long time if something is going on here.
Because of the way the hotel interior is designed -- large open floors that overlook a beautiful atrium, I assumed there would be a lot of noise at night from kids running around (and because I did the same thing when I was a teenager and stayed at hotels like this!) but this wasn't a problem. There were several receptions and weddings going on throughout the day and evening during our stay. We had to catch a 6am flight so we left the hotel at 3:45am and there were still a few people hanging around in the lobby and outside! Luckily, I didn't hear anything at all.
