Rated 5 out of 5 by Boonpldoggie My stay
I was very impressed with the entire staff of your hotel. The people in the restaurant were especially helpful. I have no negatives and only positive things to say about the Weston

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sammygranny Several Problems
We stay here several times a year as it is close to family and we can bring our small dog too. This stay had 3 problems, one of which is unfortunately on-going. 1) The credit card system was apparently having issues as it took a long time to get authorization. 2) We received a wake-up call at 3:00AM from the front desk-unfortunately it was a mistake as we had not requested a wake-up call! 3) the on-going problem and most irritating of all concerns the parking gate: 9 out of 10 times our parking pass is apparently de-activated the SECOND we check out as it never works to raise the gate, which, while very annoying would be slightly more tolerable if only there was someone to answer the "assistance" button at the exit gate! ( THAT has never happened!) So we are forced to back-up, park, and make another trip to the front desk! Totally ridiculous! When we complained about the unauthorized wake-up call and parking gate issue to the front desk clerk, we were told that the manager would be informed and it was "implied" that our bill would be adjusted accordingly. Needless to say, that hasn't happened...yet...

Rated 4 out of 5 by RichA Nice place for a small conference
Nice facilities. Nice rooms. Beds good, but pillows a little beaten down. Good hospitality. Nice to get hot chocolate in the afternoon. Food mediocre. But close to other eateries.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lola838 Westin is AWESOME
I've had the pleasure of staying with Westin three times this year and in each city, their facility is clean, professional and extremely friendly. I would recommend SPG to anyone.

Westin is our favorite home away from home. We like all the Starwood hotels, but Westin is our favorite.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RIcky2995 The hotel meet my expectations.
The location is perfect. Close to O'Hara and downtown Chicago. A walk away from the CTA Blue Line. The food was a bit expensive for me. However the bagel shop fits my diet style.

Rated 3 out of 5 by mbluecpa Suitable for a pre-flight stay
I just completed a quick stay here prior to a morning flight, and the Westin was a good choice for that. Construction is nearing completion, with a couple of areas adjoining the lobby and the front driveway still inaccessible.
My room was quiet and comfortable with a huge desk, good lighting, and ample plugs so well-suited for anyone needing to get work done.
The restaurant and bar were open; however at dinner time the night of my stay, a very large part of the restaurant was curtained off for a private event. That left nine tables with 26 seats in the dining room serving a 525-room hotel. I waited 30 minutes for a table without apology from anyone on staff. Once in, food and service were fine, though.
Shuttle service to the airport was running every 15 minutes and was prompt. I was at the fourth stop at the airport in under 15 minutes.
The walk from the Blue Line train is billed as two blocks, and those are very long blocks. You need to cross a large parking lot, freeway on ramp, and six-lane road to get to the hotel. Certainly safe and doable, but not advised for those with mobility problems or in inclement weather.
This hotel was fine for what I needed the night before an early flight.

Desk clerk was super warm. Though it was on weekend, staffing was complete. Food served to our group was very well prepared. Thanks for the ride to and from the airport.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Lumux2 Fell short of expectations
The hotel is currently under construction/remodel which causes some confusion upon arrival. The individual assisting during check-in forgot to provide breakfast coupons which were part of our package and everyone in our group either had to go back and get them or had to remind staff upon check-in to provide them. Requests made to be on same floor as our group were taken upon check-in and we spent extra time spelling out each name only to be split up and part of our group was told that it was "no big deal" to be 4 floors from each other.
The service at the bar and for breakfast (buffet) was excellent. All were very attentive and very nice. If you had your breakfast made to order, it was better than some of the items that were on the buffet.
We required help to open the in-room safe and again, service was very responsive and timely.
The worst part was housekeeping. We all had noon check out and although some forgot to put out the do not disturb sign (which was hard to find in the room), housekeeping felt it was appropriate to knock on doors at 7:00 a.m. that Saturday morning. Completely unacceptable!
Also, shuttle service from the casino was not very reliable. We had to take taxis because they never showed up.

This hotel is in need of a redo. Everything has an old look about it. Very outdated. Bath and shower had mildew. Ligh switch location made lights almost unusable.

OK WESTIN FOR AN AIRPORT LOCATION. IT IS AN OLDER PROPERTY THAT IS NICE INSIDE. I WOULD NOT GO THERE ON VACATION, BUT IF I NEED A PLACE AT O'HARE IT WAS FINE.

This hotel has everything we needed for a successful clinic. The room was perfect, and the ballroom was large enough to handle the 500 participants.
