          Location to downtown businesses and amenities.

          The price. If this were a trip for pleasure rather than business, I would have chosen a more affordable hotel and taken public transportation to move around the city.

          Our room was not ready at 5pm on arival.Was not notified when room was ready. had to ask for shampoo & conditioner. the coffe cup melted when I tried to make coffe.

          It was very fun and located in a great area.

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          found the location excellent for location to water front and shopping on Michigan ave. A short cab ride to most attractions.

          Was disappointed with the very large price diff in the hotel restaurant between lunch and dinner menus for the same food. Booked 2 nights at $229.00 initially and my wife who is a longtime Starwood member booked a third night. Her price was $206.00. At checkout we asked if something could be done about the price diff and were advised that nothing could be done.. Clearly something could have been done if the front desk chose to..

        • Single
          6.6

          I liked the room and the shower head.

          The customer service was awful. It took a very long time to check in and the girl was confused. Very frustrating.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          The hotel is in a great location just across the street from the John Hancock building.

          Wall were paper thin and we could hear 2 kids coversations with their parents came from the next door. The bathroom was dirty. I found few pieces of hair in the bathtub.

          Location and price were a good match

        • Single
          6.6

          Restaurant was very good and convenient

          Felt like hotel was very expensive for the limited amenities it offered-- no pool or hot tub with work out center. Only one restaurant--limited space for people waiting to check-in and check-out

        • Couple
          9.0

          Excellent location.

          The wifi was poor. We were returning 10 days later and asked to book in but were advised that this was not possible and we would have to go to the website which was difficult with the poor wifi..

        • Group of friends
          7.4

          The lines to check n and to check out were too long and slowly handled. Not enough reception staff.

        • Single
          7.8

          The spa and fitness room were excellent. The room was very clean.

          Overpriced room service and food. Concierge service was poor.

        • Couple
          10.0

          We were gonna stay at a different hotel and decided to change our reservations to the Westin. It was convenient to shopping, friendly staff, and a very luxurious room!!!

          We loved it! and recommended it to our family!!!

          Location and restaurant/bar options

          Hallway noise between 2:30 and 5:00 A.M. was out of control - certainly not what the Westin would have liked.

          10.0

          We liked that it was right on Michigan Ave..We were in the heart of the city!
