I came to Chicago a few days earlier to my business trip to enjoy the sights and take in the culture. I usually and try to stick with Starwood Hotels since I do the majority of my business trips with them. I found this hotel exactly what I expected, roughly all Westin hotels are similar in their quality (at least...

Spent the weekend here with my wife and several other couples. I was particularly pleased with the friendly and accommodating staff working in the valet, front desk, room-service and wait staff at the lobby bar. The room was very clean and comfortable. The view on the river side was wonderful day and night. We even got to see a helicopter...

Spent two days here at Westin for business trip. I requested a river view online and I did get it! Very nice view. Room was clean and nice. Love the marble bathroom design. It's also very convenient to walk to surrounding restaurants and shops. Staffs here are all very nice as well!

Not a horrible place, but.... This hotel is obviously old and renovated when you enter the rooms. The original outlet behind the night stand in my room (316) appeared slightly out of alignment. One lamp had the bulb sitting at an angle. I put it back in its place, but I don't know when these potential electrical hazards will cause...

The Hotel has a great location and everyone could not have been more cooperative. Service was a plus.

This is my 4th time at the Westin River North. It's a good location (within walking distance from the main areas), the rooms are a decent size and the staff attentive. I've had some issues with my back and Sam in the gym area was very helpful in providing good advice and routines to assist me. Very enjoyable stay.
