The Westin Chicago River North Hotel Review: This reliable, upscale hotel is conveniently located in a neighborhood well known for its art galleries, boutiques and restaurants. It offers beautiful views of the city and the Chicago River. The 424 good-sized rooms and suites have been individually decorated and feature luxuries such as three telephones with data ports and voicemail, and large, marble bathrooms. Basics include refrigerators, irons and all the other extras expected of a hotel of this caliber. The business center, meeting rooms and conference centers are modern thanks to recent updates. The Hana Lounge serves sushi and cocktails in the evening, when there is often live jazz. Additional dining is offered at the Ember Grille. The location puts guests near the Chicago Theatre, State Street, the Magnificent Mile and Navy Pier, as well as the Chicago River, where architectural boat tours are a favorite summer activity.
