As I no longer travel for business on a weekly basis we must secure our SPG Platinum level through more creative means. This means for us many weekend stays close to home. These getaway's are very nice. We break the grind of working seven days a week, and we typically get a great meal at a one of the best restaurants in Chicago's Northern Suburbs.
This means a stay at the Chicago Westin Northwest. Previously a window, this property is shaped around a large atrium. The property is showing it's age in some of the facilities, but nothing that the wonderful staff does not overshadow. With large rooms, great views (Chicago skyline is visible from the east facing rooms) and a great bar menu, or Shula's Steakhouse on site you cannot go wrong. the location is close to O'hare Airport, and a modest drive downtown.
We have stayed in this property over fifty nights over the last several years; something which started as a simple weekend getaway to now a required ritual.
So, for the weekend adventurer, this is a great stepping off spot for Woodfield Mall, the suburbs, or downtown, and for the business traveler, location to the airport is excellent.
A nice property with great meals, drinks, and an exceptional staff. When in Chicago, try the Westin Northwest!
