We spent a few nights at the Westin after Christmas, taking the train from Chicago. Once you wend your way through the concrete maze of Amtrak and get into the original Union Station, you are transported. The old station is fabulously maintained. And even though it is not well-promoted, you can walk all the way to the Westin without going outdoors via an enclosed walkway connecting the facilities. It's not that far, but you can save on taxi money. The Westin is a fine place with a heated outdoor pool open year-round. The staff are friendly, the rooms very clean, and the access to the shops in the Crown Center very convenient. We went back to the Union Station to see the model train exhibit and soak up the atmosphere that only a classic transit hub can provide. I'd gladly stay at the Westin again.
