Rated 4 out of 5 by FayO Very Comfy Beds
Overall, a great place to stay. The bed was oh so comfy, I didn't want to wake up. The shower was also great.
The staff, all the staff, were excellent. Very polite, courteous, friendly and accommodating.
I had the trout dinner in the Benchmark.Restaurant. It was the best dinner ever. The garlic butter sauce was very tasty. And they substituted asparagus for the shrimp. Also, tasty. As was the spinach and potatoes. My compliments to the chef. However, the Monday morning Breakfast buffet's hot items were not very hot, including the coffee, but I arrived just before closing time.
There could be more handicap parking spaces at the conference rooms end of the hotel. Some little bothersome items - the room lamps were in need of repair - loose shades, bulb fixtures, and switches. Desk chair was uncomfortable. Sheets were too small for the comfy beds and came loose during sleep, towels were a bit rough. Iron but no ironing board. Little things.
Overall, an excellent place to stay if you're in the area.

Rated 1 out of 5 by TiffanyGMC This was the worst Westin i have stayed at
This was a horrible 2 night stay for me. I am a blogger and I am unable to write a postive review. My room fan squeaked very loadly which they did replace. The hotel shuttle left me stranded for almost 2 hours while the kitchen already made my lunch which got cold.
I checked out early.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pamayl Great service
The hotel consistently offers good service. The new renovated rooms are better. Very good size room with light. Love the fact that window can be opened a little to get some fresh air. Comfortable and reliable service. Staff offers responsive, friendly and personalized service.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jbc528 poor fitness room
You removed all of the weight equipment. When I travel, I need my exercise. I can't get what I need anymore at this hotel or, I was told by the front desk, at any Westin. When I have a choice, I will NOT stay at a Westin in the future despite the otherwise great service.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MOSSAV Great hotel, but tired
I always stay at this hotel when I need to be near O'Hare. It is time for a makeover, as the rooms, and especially the bathrooms are dated. Not enough easily accessible plugs for chargers and electronics. The bathrooms are showing wear and the bath/shower is very dated.

We arrived early, left late and was able to check in when we got there & left as late as we could for a late flight! I appreciate great service MORE THAN ANYTHING!! Train close for downtown travel. Restaurants close by plus in the hotel. All around good place to stay!

Rated 2 out of 5 by JackiB Not up to par with the Westin reputation
The hotel's lobby was nice, but beyond that it did not resemble what Westin typically represents.
The rooms were old, outdated and dirty. I had spots on the carpet, and worst of all, toenails from a prior guest. Obviously the room had not been vacuumed prior to my check-in. The 'Heavenly Bath' consisted of an old shower stall, which was poorly fitted with the double shower head. It stuck off the wall with about 2" of exposed pipe, and looked like it may fall off.
The elevators had issues during my stay, and it caused ridiculously long waits.
When I checked in and tried to provide my Starwood number, I was told "we can't do that, the system is down." That was my only acknowledgement of being a returning Starwood guest. We also noticed they were writing down credit card numbers, which when we asked, we were told the system was down. Probably a better idea to ask a guest if it is ok to write thier credit card number down and explain why up front.
Overall, not up to the quality I expect from a Westin. I would not return.

The hotel is an excellent facility to host business meetings, large or small. It is very accessible to all means of transportation, offers excellent meeting rooms, attentive staff and the comfort of the rooms are superb.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Nancy Arriving late
Arrived at 1 AM due to late flight - took over 30 minutes to check in. Rug in room was so stained I did not want to take my shoes off.
So disappointed I left a day earlier than scheduled - realize it is an airport hotel but I expect better service and a clean room!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BruceInTexas We are never disappointed
We are never disappointed when we stay at the Westin O'Hare, from our greeting by Ivan to Marie in Benchmark to the little gal who kept our room clean and neat. The location was perfect for all our family and business. And it is a Westin, what more is needed to say.

Rated 3 out of 5 by AJP11111111111111111111 Minor annoyances
The overall experience was fine.
Minor annoyances was a slowly responsive TV remote, inability to checkout via the TV and the bathroom door open was very close to the edge of the toilet so the door has to be closed to use the toilet that seems poorly planned...

I found the desk and housecleaning staff to be very helpful, especially Denise the Concierge and Andrew at Registration. The housecleaning staff were always smiling and did their jobs unobtrusively and efficiently. Also, the beds were great! Thanks for a nice stay.

Rated 4 out of 5 by msumar This hotel needs
it's disappointing to satay in a five start hotel which is very expensive to stay in and have to pay extra for the Internet access in the guest rooms, or pay extra for parking.
At this rate, the inclusion of a continental breakfast would be a welcome convenience.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Nomada This hotel needs somebody to clean the windows, dors and dust everything!!!
This hotel needs somebody to clean the windows, the doors and to dust everything!!!
First what I saw were the dirty doors conecting the parking with the hotel loby... spots all over the glass.... gross!!! Behind the reception desks, next to the wall they have black console tables - the dust was ....... even before going to my room I wanted to write "I was here, adn I'll never come back" on the dust.... (all of the tables were dirty)
O.K. this have nothing to do with cleanliness but to add to the gloomy look the paint on the walls in the main loby have this terrible bordo color - somebody tryed to make it look like a fancy paint, but unfortunatly it looked like wall cleaning gone wrong.....
What I'll recomend - find some local homel/motel with good review, cheeper, with free parking and free wi-fi!!!!! This one night was a high way robbery!!!!!!
Not worth it!!!! I do not recomend this hotel, next time I'll do my homework better ( I went there for the salsa congres), I'd rather drive few minutes than get irritated again!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Me1126 Great for groups
I was here with my company for a business meeting. The staff was great at accommodating all of my needs, and I appreciated the prompt, polite, and friendly service.
The only thing is that it's not right off the highway so it can be a little tricky to get there.

I was in town on business with a client. As always, The Westin O'Hare was a pleasure. From arrival at the hotel to check out, the staff was friendly and helpful, the room was great, and the amenities perfect, including the gym, which i used this time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Stu57 Unexpected Stay
Due to a cancelled flight, I opted to stay at the Westin O'Hare hotel. The hotel was in the midst of renovations (according to signs); however, my stay was very pleasant. The only downside was the room wasn't necessarily up to the usual cleanliness standards.

The hotel has a warm ambiance, efficient staff, and very comfortable room accommodations. It took ten minutes to get to the airport, even in commute traffic. We held a meeting on the 12th floor. The breakfast and lunch was wonderful.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Hennie Check-In
The check-in did not recognize my preferred status and gave me the opposite of what I requested. I requested a handicapped room, close to the elevator and was given a completely different room. Then I was not assisted with the move to the correct room.

My stay was comfortable, But I would not recommend the "steel Cut Oatmeal" It was luke - warm at best , tasteless, and I find it hard to believe it was nothing more than a packet of quick oats , I was very disappointed in the quality of the breakfast.

The reservation specialist provided incorrect information at the time of booking. Had the reservation specialist been honest regarding the proximity to the attractions I was coming to Chicago to visit I never would have booked at the Hotel.

I enjoyed my stay at the Westin O'Hare. Close to the airport and restaurants. Hotel bar is a little strange in layout. Tried to leave the parking lot around 4:30 on a Thursday afternoon and it took me 30 minutes with a line of people.
