I had a roomette, which is a room with a big window and 2 chairs that fold in to become a bed. A second bed folds out from the ceiling. When it's all folded out, there's a tiny bit of room to stand and climb around. The whole room is just slightly bigger than a bunkbed. It's brilliant for one person, I put all my stuff on the top bunk and slept on the bottom one so I could look out of the window as we went along. Not sure how it works with 2 people, I think if I had ...
Up at 5 am to see the city wake up Well.... Who can sleep when you have so much to do and places to see.? Wow. We found a real gem of a diner and had a true Chicago breakfast. Bacon eggs sausages and... Pancakes. @ Beef n Brandy. South State Street. Yummy. 13.30. Off to pick up the Harley. ...
... D looked good with the continuing trend from the last few years of causing as many turnovers as possible. However; the defensive highlight had to be the second half tackle by Bears rookie LB Jonathan Bostic on Chargers WR Mike Willie. Bostic hit him that hard it was heard above the crowd all around the stadium.
At the end the Bears ran out 33-28 winners over a poor Chargers team. On the way back to the hotel I stopped off at the Rock n Roll McDonalds across the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Westin O'Hare Rosemont
My new wife, of several hours, and I stayed at the Westin O'Hare on a February 2005 Sunday night. I had called ahead with an Entertainment discount card which reserved us a $189 standard room for $119. Trip Advisor had a better rate, but it wasn't good for the exact night I wanted. Westin does have better suites with more amenities, but the discounts didn't apply to better rooms and to us, it wasn't worth paying three times the price since we had to catch an early flight to Hawaii. The suites included a stereo and jacuzzi, but I knew we wouldn't use the latter, so it wasn't worth the difference...I think they were quoted at $375 a night.
Nice hotel but oh the smoke....
I agree. This is best of the hotels around O'Hare. And Westin really is getting to be my favorite of the mid level branded hotels. But please, when will Illinois or Rosemount get with it and stop the smoking! The Landmark restaurant bar is unbearable. Fortunately, there's a lobby bar which benefits from high ceilings that isn't the smoke pit that Landmark is. But all in all, when you close your door, get into your heavenly bed before or after a heavenly shower, the Westin O'Hare is a good place to stay.
Always loved it
Of course everyone loves their heavenly bed and bath, I am no different. I've stayed at a lot of hotels this class but I still like their beds the best. Beautifully decorated rooms, and very very clean.
The only problem I had when I stayed for the New Years Eve is that someone pulled the fire alarm at 5am. Everyone of course was evacuated and when we came back to our room 2 hours later and tried to reach the operator or someone, no one ever picked up the phone. I tried on numerous occassions but nothing. When I was checking out I found out that was a fake alarm. It just made me feel like they were not really ready for that kind of situation. It's a good thing it was a fake alarm. But I would still go back.
Very impressed. The "heavenly bed" is awesome. The swimming pool (open until 11 PM) and the fitness center are very good. Convenient to the "El" stop and O'Hare Airport. I visit my family in Chicago often, and we plan to stay here evey time.
I stay at this hotel twice a year on business. It is always the same: great heavenly beds, okay food, close to the airport, but the service is just terrible. The hotel books large conferences/conventions and is just not equipped to deal with them. The front desk is the worst - often long lines, slow comprehending clerks, lost faxes, uncleared telephone messages, and misassigned rooms (e.g. smoking when a non-smoking is specifically ordered). Room service, when it answers the phone, can take overly long. Owners really need to reassess both the number and training of staff.
We (two adults and two children) stayed in this hotel for five nights in June. It was great. The hotel is really nice, the beds are great. Beare, everything extra costs - parking $16/day, late check out $50, water $4, etc. Park behind the hotel is gorgeous. McDonald's is next door which we frequented for breakfast. There is also an Italian restaraunt within walking distance. Pool and gym were nice. Will definitely stay there again.
Best hotel near O'Hare
This is not your average airport hotel. If you ever have to stay near O'Hare this is where you want to be. The food is reasonably good, the staff is great and the rooms are fabulous.
Great place to stay if you need to stick close to airport
Love those Feather Beds!!! We got so lucky with this place. I booked it through Hotwire as we had an early monday morning flight out of O'hare.
We stayed one night and it was fantastic.The feather beds are phenomenal. It has convinced me to stay at a Westin whenever possible.
They have a free shuttle to O'hare. Showers are excellent as well.Although we didn't use many amenities at this hotel, I recommend the rooms alone.
Westin Ohare is Great
Great hotel....Heavenly Beds are truely Heavenly...pool is great...rooms are spacious and nice....awesome trip
Admittedly made a late reservation for the Westin O'Hare, 4PM their time, during ground hold at LAX do to weather in Chicago. Arriving in Chicago late (midnight) due to storm delay at O'Hare, which prevented me from making connection flight. Arrived at hotel at 01:30 with reservation secured by credit card. The room was not ready! First room for our party ready at 03:00 a.m. and we had to be at the airport at 10:30. The hotel employees were very nice and went out of their way. I was wondering were the management team was however? Room meets Starwoods excellent standards. Was awoken at 09:00 (went to bed at 04:00) by maid who did not know room was occupied! Room had an very good price, however look out for the add ons, bottled water was $4.00, room service breakfast for one came to almost $20.00. Room was great, like any Starwood property, was not happy with avaibility of room, not sure the management teams cared that I was not happy.
