One of many Westin hotels across the US, the Westin Michigan Avenue Chicago greets you with a dramatic sweeping staircase, soaring marble columns and glittering, modern light fixtures. But it's not just a pretty picture; handy features like flexible workspaces ('Tangent') and free Wi-Fi in the lobby are on offer for businesspeople staying in Chicago. After you've feasted on all the pan-fried fish and fillet steaks you can manage, sip an after-dinner coffee at The Grill on the Alley, overlooking the melee of the Magnificent Mile below. Catch up on your favorite shows while you're on the Stairmaster at the WestinWORKOUT 24-hour gym, or make your exercise more social, with regular evening classes like yoga or a running club.

Visitors can also wander down to the shores of Lake Michigan – Oak Street Beach is only a few steps from the Westin.

Great location

Location of the hotel and ease of access to Michigan Ave was the best thing about this facility. Went for a romantic weekend stay over Valentines Day. Room was clean and decent, but we expected it to be nicer being a 4 star hotel. Just seemed very blah and average. Seems like they expect 1 guest per room since the give you 1 robe, and 1 complimentary bottle of water. Guess we could share! Could we get more than 2 tiny coffee creamers without feeling like we're heathens too? Free wifi without having to sign up to join some email club would of been nice for what we paid. The room had what looked to be a fridge, but after reading the info pasted to the front of the appliance, it doesn't keep anything cold, so you had to request a real fridge. We didn't see the point of having this thing in there that keeps your food and drink luke warm. We requested a fridge, and they brought it up. The sink gurgled on and off, and the hallway was loud with neighbors knocking all throughout the night. Girlfriend and I both were awakened several times by this, and it went on ALL night. Prices in the restaurant were outrageous. TV channel selection and guide were miserable too. No way to see what's on except by clicking through every channel constantly. On the plus side, staff were very friendly, and the shower was nice. Wasn't horrible, but we would probably not stay there again. There are too many other options in that price range.

Westin Michigan Avenue

The hotel was fine but during our stay a hotel staff member let themselves into our room without a knock. I let the employee at the front desk know and never heard back from them. I wonder how often this happens and nobody ever knows because they are out of the room. I would not leave anything valuable in the room.

Quick stay in chicago

I stayed at the Westin for a short stay in Chicago while I was visiting my girlfriend. The staff were very friendly and offered to sign me up for the SPG program which gave me free wifi access. The room was clean, and well furnished. I have to give special mention to the shower which was very cool, hard to describe, but trust me it was an awesome shower, you kind of have to see for yourself. All in all a good experience.
