Sun, Sand and Shopping at the Westin Michigan Avenue

With its location on the Magnificent Mile the Westin Michigan Avenue is known for its proximity to some of Chicago's best shopping. It's across the street from the upscale 900 North Michigan Shops and a block away from Water Tower Place.

It's also near some of Chicago's top attractions. Step outside the doors on Delaware Avenue and you're across the street from the John Hancock Building. Inside that towering icon is 360 Chicago and its new Tilt, which leans visitors over the streets below for a birds' eye view from 1,000 feet up. There's also the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Loyola University Museum of Art, the historic Water Tower and Pumping Station, Broadway Playhouse and Lookingglass Theaters, and inside Water Tower Place, the new Chicago Sports Museum.

One major attraction that's just a couple of blocks away from the Westin is the pristine Oak Street Beach. This sandy escape is right off of Lake Shore Drive but you'll feel like you're at a remote getaway. You can rent chairs, cabanas, and umbrellas, grab a cocktail at Oak Street Beach Food + Drink, and you can even get a massage,

To showcase this jewel Westin Michigan Avenue is offering a special Summer Beach Package. Included are: 

  • Westin Canvas Beach bag with beach essentials including sunscreen and beach toys
  • 2 Superfoods Lunch to go Boxes
  • Complimentary beach towel rentals for the day

The package is available from Thursdays through Sundays. It ends on Labor Day weekend, so book it ASAP! If the next week doesn't work for you it will start up again in May, 2015.

You can also take advantage of several other special hotel deals. Experience Divvy with two free 24-hour passes to the bike sharing service and get 10% off your bill. Now that football season is nearly here they've also got a Chicago Football package, which includes two all-day CTA passes that you can use to take you straight to the game. You'll also get two draft beers at The Grill on the Alley and you can sleep off that post-game excitement with a 2pm late checkout.

The Westin Michigan Avenue, 909 N Michigan Ave, is a beautiful hotel with spacious rooms, great amenities (including comfortable robes and soaking tubs!), and location, location, location. Book your stay online today or by calling 866-716-8104.

The Westin Michigan Avenue provided two nights accommodations and the Summer Beach Package as part of our #GrandAdventure and #Staycation series.
