Reviewed June 4, 2013

Stayed here for a convention held at the hotel so the convenience was the primary reason for our stay here. We were turned away twice at check-in because our room wasn't available. This only delayed our room an hour and they offered to remove the parking fee for two nights so that saved us around $50 bucks. When we tried to log onto our laptop we realized there was a $13 a night fee just to use the internet. I feel the internet is as expected in a hotel the same way cable TV is - you assume it would be included as part of your stay. Same with a mini-fridge. I expect to have one in my room as well which there was none. The ice bucket is the smallest I've ever seen so it was hard to keep our food cool that we brought back from the restaurant and from home. For this reason alone I doubt I would stay here again - even if the convention was in the hotel again I would probably seek out a more all-inclusive hotel. Also, if you decline cleaning service during your stay you supposedly receive a $5 voucher or card to use at a participating restaurant which we did not receive. So I asked cleaning and they said check with the desk and then we did that and they said cleaning should have given us that. Then they said they would add it to our points or something like that and when we checked the receipt it wasn't there and that was 2 minutes after the desk offered us that.
Tips: There is a McD's right next to the hotel if you need food quick. The gas station next to McDs is about .25 more a gallon than anywhere else I saw - even the toll road gas stations so buy somewhere else!

Room Tip: Ask for a side facing downtown and you might enjoy your stay a bit more.

The hotel is very nice, but extra charges for things. I was surprised to be charged $25 for parking for my stay. I was even more surprised to be charged for internet...Considering it is 2013 and much less expensive hotels provide both as part of the room cost.

Thank you historygeek05 for taking the time to complete a review of your recent experience. We wish that we could offer complimentary parking however due to limited space to park around the airport area all hotels in Rosemont and Chicago have to charge for parking. To answer your comment about internet charge we do offer complimentary wifi in our Lobby and public areas however to be able to supply the appropriate bandwidth to all 500+ guestrooms there is a fee to support the expense. We do our best to maintain the finest quality technology so we hope your service was flawless while you were here! Thank you again for your feedback!

Had to stay 1 night near the O'Hara airport for our flight the next day and found this hotel on a email special for SPG members. I booked a $89.00 rate through the special for a King room with a free upgrade to a king suite. Had free shuttle to airport so I figured why not as everything else was over $100 more a night. Also, all the hotel charge a parking fee in the surrounding area. Once we walked into the lobby we knew we did good. Check-in was great and our room was amazing. Over 470 sq. feet of gorgeous and so much room and the bathroom was huge! Has a huge business center free of charge along with a fitness center and indoor pool. They also have a small spa service area on the 2nd floor. Shuttles runs every 15 minutes to the airport for 24 hours and they ran on time. Rosemont is a great location with lots of dining, beautiful park a block away and a casino within 3 blocks. I will definitely stay here again. Not sure what the regular rooms look like but the free upgrade was great and at that price, I wish we could of stayed longer! Staying close to the airport, we NEVER heard any planes. Was amazed at that. Outside of building looks dated as it has been there a long time but I loved the inside look and ambiance.

Room Tip: Ask for a free upgrade to a king suite and sign up for Starwood programs for email specials.

Thank you so much rbjjm211 for taking the time to complete a survey of your experience. We are delighted that you had a great time and are happy to share some history about the hotel. In the original construction of the hotel the windows were designed with two 5/8 inch glass panes that are soundproof so our guests receive the Heavenly Sleep that they deserve! The windows do open as well so those that enjoy fresh air can get that if they wish. Thank you again and we look forward to having you back again soon!

The Westin O'Hare is within walking distance of CTA Rosemont station, so getting into the city is not a big issue. There's nothing special about this hotel, just a normal Westin. Rooms are clean enough, staffs are polite, everything seems just OK. It's not a new property, but I guess I can deal with it. In fact, since I just had stayed at Westin LAX, I thought the Los Angeles hotel was better in every way.

There's no free wifi. I needed a double/double room but got a king room instead. Since I bid the room at Priceline, I guess I should not complain much.

There are so many hotels near O'Hare, and you deserve better choices.

Give the Westin a shot. The price is about half of what downtown hotels charge. The rooms are standard Westin rooms. Easy access to the train or freeways. If you come in late you get an extra hour of sleep. It's an above average airport hotel.

The good:
1. Shuttle bus from and to airport is every 15 minutes so it's fairly convenient.
2. Check-in is efficient even when there were lots of guests checking in at the same time.
3. Gym equipment are adequate

The bad:
1. Need to renovate the hotel overall, looks worn down.
2. The room is just average, need to do major renovation to signify their room rate.
3. Not enough choices for their breakfast buffet, very simple breakfast.

But overall, this facility could be better though compared to all of the Westin's that I have stayed. I guess for me, there should be a Westin standard that needs to be uphold everywhere.

I stayed at the Westin O'Hare with 3 girlfriends for a road trip and really enjoyed it.

The Pros:
- The beds are as comfortable as the hotel advertises them to be! After long days of walking, you definitely get the good rest you need
- It's near the airport, but not noisy at all, and the CTA is walking distance, so if you don't want to worry about driving around the city, it's super convenient to get downtown
- The parking lot has in/out privileges, so if you do decide to take your car out, don't have to worry about incurring extra fees
- Rooms are spacious - we had 4 people share the room and there was still room to walk after we dumped all of our luggage on the floor
- It's a Westin, so things are well kept and service is consistent

Cons
- the parking passes can be quite dysfunctional, and there does not seem to be a handy solution. We were given a parking pass at check-in, and when we tried to swipe to exit the lot, the card didn't work. We then went back to the concierge to get a replacement card, which ALSO didn't work. We ended up having to buzz for help and have someone open the gate for us. This entire process caused a back-up of several cars and was really something that should not have happened. We noticed that it happened to some other guests as well, as people were asking for replacement parking passes when we were checking in.
- Wireless is expensive unless you have Starwood Gold Status, not sure if you get it with Prefered Status

Overall, it was a great hotel stay and with the exception of a tiny glitch, would have been pretty much perfect. For people who are cost-conscious but also want a comfortable and luxurious stay, this is great value!!
