Historical Traveler Reviews The Westin Chicago River North
My husband and I stayed here in Feb 03 while in town for a concert at the nearby UIC Pavillion. We were very impressed with the beautifully appointed room that had a wonderful view of the city. The bathroom was so luxurious and the bed was out of this world! We wished we had been able to stay much longer. My only complaint was the charge for valet parking-$34 for one day. That is a bit excessive. But it is the city, I am sure it is the same other places.
Best night's sleep in town!
The Westin was wonderful. The beds are so comfortable and the room temperature is easily adjustable. The Japanese sushi bar and garden was lovely and the location is ideal. The hotel is right next to the "River North" nad there is a wonderful outdoor cafe on the river. The water taxis also stop by the hotel. The serivce was wonderful...only one minor complaint...we requested our "heavenly robes" each morning, but never received them. So don't count on the robes, but the beds are very comfy and the room is small, but cozy and comfortable.
Just got back from a one night stay at the Westin River North and it was great. I really liked the hotel, very comfortable beds, good location. It was my family and my first time in Chicago and if and when we do go back, The Westin would probably be our first choice. I ran into a special offer on the Westin's own website for two free breakfasts the morning of your stay and the rate was cheaper than any hotel.com, expedia etc...!
Amazing Heavenly Beds!
The hotel is unbelievably great. Their "Heavenly Bed" is out of this world! I have had constant 24/7 low back pain for about 10 years now.
I've tried 3 different mattress set in our home. I travel extensively with my job so I have the, normally unfortunate experience, of other hotel beds. For first time in 10 years, I was able to sleep pain free!
After loving their beds for 3 wonderful nights, I am ordering the complete bed set including linens this week.
My new home in Chicago!!
My husband and I stayed the Westin for 3 nights when movers where in our home packing us up to relocate out of Chicago (May 2003). We could not have wished for a better home away from home!! Staying at this hotel was an awesome experience! I cannot comment enough on the unbelievable hospitality of the hotel staff. The first night we checked in, we had just had a hectic day planning for the moving company - our hotel room was well appointed, with soothing lighting and coloring - it was soothing just walking in! We so enjoyed relaxing at the end of the day, sitting in the bay window of our room having a room service dinner but feeling like our table had been set-up for a romantic, deluxe dinner for 2!! I rushed by the hotel a couple of times to drop off items and the bellman very efficiently had these delivered to our room without any hestitation. For a hotel of this size, in a big city, the personal attention is to be highly commended!! This will definitely be my home away from home when I head back to Chicago for business.
Not bad at all
We recently stayed at the Westin Chicago North. It is well located in the loop and has very spacious one bedroom suites which easily accomodated our family of 5. The crib ("the heavenly crib") for our 6 months old infant was great. The sofa in the living room was not a pull-out but the hotel provided a very comfortable extra bed for our older kids free of charge. The only flaw of this hotel is that it doesn't have a swimming pool, but otherwise the fitness center is more than adequate with a beautiful view of the street. The lobby is a little smoky, but having been in other chicago hotels, this appears to be the norm in the windy city. If you like sushi like I do, you will be spoiled as it is available for room service or dinner or take out.
A break from the wind
The Westin River North, is nestled into a prominent area - minutes to all amenities. The staff was friendly and as a single female traveler, I felt both welcome and safe. The room was pleasent and clean and housekeeping was effective. The food was tasty also - although a tad pricey. The view of the river was nice also.Unlike some other hotels, service was excellent and there were no mistakes - and I'm picky. This was the third hotel I've stayed in, in Chicago and would gladly return.
Awesome expierience, would recommend to anyone. I arrived in town eariler than expected (several hours actually) and they allowed me to check in before 10am!! Lobby is very elegant with a bar and roomy seating area. Helpful and friendly conceierge and staff. Room was very spacious and clean. Located right off river, close to theaters and many restaurants. Will stay there from now on.
A classy joint
Loved my stay at the Westin River North (jan 4-5, 2003).
The lobby, full of dark woods and marble, is elegant and relaxed, with a great bar and P.M. piano music.
The rooms have that typical upscale taupe overload, but the furnishings are elegant and high-quality, and the artwork actually catches your attention. They're a little above average in size, and have the ultracomfy Westin heavenly beds.
The bathrooms are the real stars of the rooms - huge with elegant marble floors and great shower/bath combos. High quality bath products are included.
Room service is fast and very good. The Westin Service Express, as always, is topnotch.
The hotel is in the River North area of downtown Chicago, a few blocks from N. Michigan Ave. and the Loop area. The Clark/Lake "L" station is a couple of blocks away.
Very nice But?????
Beautiful hotel, nice people but the little extras were missing. Example, they advertise 2 header shower, not there, only 1 robe instead of 2, I thought for that price there would be mints on our pillows daily there weren't, air conditioning in the room was poor. I will stay there again for over all it was a great weekend.
