Affordable Chicago Suburb Hotel away from the loop Aug 17, 2011
Downtown Chicago is a busy place in summer with an assortment of extra special events converging at once.
Lallapaloosa, a home Cubs game, and the Sade concert all happened on the same weekend. Loop hotels were booked or $400/night - so I booked this Westin property about 24 miles out of the loop.
I booked on Hotwire for $63 a night. A great bargain for that weekend.
Free parking, easy access from the freeway. Traffic into the loop was mostly a non-issue.
The hotel sits on it's own man made lake.
12 stories with the Starwood Preferred floor as #12.
While it is an updated and attractive hotel, the functionality of the design stinks. I was on the 7th floor and every conversation in the lobby and in the banquet room could be heard very clearly in my room. The hotel is set up similar to the Luxor Hotel in Vegas - a pyramid shape with the lobby open through the top of the hotel with room access all around the outside.
The rooms were clean, well maintained, and comfortable. Very typical decor of the newer Westin properties. The bed was very comfortable.
2 free bottles of water were included in each room.
Soaps and shampoos were bare minimum here and toiletries common at other Westin's were absent here.
The welcome at checkin was lukewarm at best, however, I was allowed early checkin, which was convenient.
Fortunately, I read reviews prior and brought earplugs. That was necessary and helpful. I wish the hotel supplied them as most reviewers complain about noise.
I didn't use the restaurant, pool, fitness center, or any other amenities, but there were available and on-site for use.
Over, a decent location if loop hotels are full or if you are passing through Chicago.
