Rated 5 out of 5 by Leslie1957 Staff outstanding
Staff outstanding, especially at the front desk. One area lacking is valet service where the opening of doors for customers seems to have gone out of style.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ringo66 Good features, great location, needs better front desk staff
Great hotel but front desk staff, Michelle, needs to recognize members better and provide adequate service along with that member level.

Westin River North is beautiful and so centrally located to many Chicago attractions. Everyone so pleasant and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

Status was recognized and staff was eager to help in any way possible. Hands down one of the best properties in Chicago and my new go-to Starwood location.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ConditionOne Westin with a lounge
Was upgraded on the morning of arrival to a deluxe corner room, with Club Lounge access. This is my third stay here, and is my preferred SPG property. Rooms here are spacious, with a sofa for lounging and great views of the city. From ORD, took the Blue line to Clark, then walked 5 minutes to the hotel. It’s a little easy to get disoriented from the El station, but once you figure out which was is North, it’s pretty straightforward.
Unlike other Westin, they have a Club Lounge. The Lounge has a solid continental breakfast in the mornings, with boiled eggs if you’re looking for a bit of protein. In the evenings, there’s a great selection of cheese, desserts, and hot food (fried cheese balls, egg rolls, and samosas) available. Alcohol is charged directly to your room by the bartenders and lounge attendants. You’re given slips of paper to fill out with your room number and tip. Not a fan of the tip field, but the attendants there do an excellent job, so was more than happy to do so.
The gym is large and has an excellent selection of machines. I was able to walk everywhere from the hotel, so I find the hotel’s location to be great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Monta777 Overall very nice...
Over all the room was very nice but the toilet was VERY short and the toilet seat was a very cheap plastic one that when you sat on it it slid sideways.

Rated 2 out of 5 by jay620 Disapointment of Sushi Cook
The Sushi Cook doesn't wash his hands and wear gloves before preparing the food. Food safety is definetely a concern at his hotel's restaurant.

This property's public areas needs a refresh and deep cleaning. The bar area and elevator lobbies on each floor are dirty, especially the carpets.

I've paid what I thought was steep parking prices in the past however $65.00 a day parking is really sticking it to your valued customers.

Rated 2 out of 5 by disapptd Not my favourite Westin stay
We paid extra to stay in a deluxe rm on an upper club floor room with access to the lounge to ensure a more comfortable stay. When we were checking in we were hesitant to take a room close to the elevator but were assured that it wouldn't be an issue. We should have stuck with our first thoughts because it was very noisy throughout the night in the hallways and it continued to disrupt our sleep. Also, the room next to us had two wake up calls sometime between 4:30am and 5:30am which I could hear very clearly and then afterwards a gentleman speaking loudly into the phone. Also, when I asked for additional towels to be sent to our room on our second day, since we opted for the green option and not have our sheets changed, they didn't take the used ones which we left over the tub and the fresh ones were put over the bathroom sink. We agreed to the option because it's okay to not change the sheets for a short stay but we do expect towel service. We have stayed at many Westin Hotels throughout Canada and the US and I have to say that this did not measure up. Lastly, the drive back to the airport was with a hotel vehicle and we were lucky to make it there without incidence due to his erratic driving and the vehicle smelled both of vomit and smoke.
On a positive note the concierge desk was always available and helpful and gave great dining advice.
