Modern Lodging

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 25, 2011

This is very new and modern hotel. Great for young couples. As we arrived, the lobby bar (across the check in counter) was filled with guests enjoying a drink at the bar. So it had a more lively but sophisticated feel. The decor is modern (slightly similar to the W hotels) and slightly on the dim/darker side. The staff was very nice and accomadating, though the conceierge desk could have been slightly more helpful. The rooms are typical of Westin hotels - comfortable size, great beds, plasma tv, and a modern and comfortable bathroom with great double headed showers.

It was raining during out stay, so we wished there had been a pool.

The location is great, walking distance from Magnificant mile. We love to walk - so we walked to the navy pier, the Hancock building and Millenium park.

Unique Quality: 1) Focuses on room comfort
2) Location is optimal (bars/restaruants/attractions)
3) Great in house bar/vibe

A Westin Close In...

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 30, 2007

Most of you who have read my tips are starting to realize I pretty much only stay at Starwood Properties, due to the loyalty rewards program. In my opinion, it is the best available for business travellers. I also understand that a great many of you on VT do not travel for business, so if you are looking for cheap accom, skip this tip.

The Westin is definitely a full service hotel, featuring the lovely lounge, a full service bar, and a number of good restaurants within walking distance. I am a huge advocate of leaving the hotel to dine, but for those that like to eat in a hotel... I can not help you.

The rooms feature the Heavenly Bed, a Westin Signature, and I emplore you to find a reasonable competitor to it in terms of comfort. The Heavenly shower is also a nice compliment in the morning to a weary traveler, as the two nozzles can create a great combination of misty rain and a hard massaging pulse.

The other main thing this Westin has going for it is the location. Located right in the heart of the city, all the places you can get in trouble shopping, eating, or drinking are all within a cab or metro (EL) train.

Too Far North

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 22, 2007

This was a nice hotel it was just a little too far north from things to do. If you're willing to take taxis around that shouldn't be a problem.

Unique Quality: $10 to workout in their small gym with the latest equipment

Classy hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

I've stayed at the Westin River North a few times over the years - built in what used to be the Hotel Nikko, it's saved the original asian-inspired touches (black marble, orchids, motherpearl accents, asian art) and updated it with all the comforts of the Westin chain (Heavenly Beds! YEAH!). You can't beat the location if you are working downtown, since it is very close to most of the major offices, and for the evening you are not too far from Michigan Ave and close to the House of Blues. Service has always been outstanding.

The rooms tend to be on the small side, but most have good views.

Unique Quality: Heavenly Bed, Heavenly Bath
