    The Westin Lombard Yorktown Center
    Lombard, IL
    • Free Parking

    4.5-star Hotel Class
    • Free Parking

    The Westin Lombard Yorktown Center scrapes the sky above Lombard, Illinois, about 20 miles west of Chicago. Although regional public transportation will make it relatively easy for leisure travelers to get into and out of the city, it's a trek and this Westin hotel is better suited for business travelers. Visitors can log onto the Internet for free in the hotel's common spaces (there's a charge for room access), or they can get the job done in the on-site business center and meeting rooms. According to recent guests, this Westin is nothing to write home about, but fans of the Marriott-affiliated hotel chain will find that the Lombard version lives up to standards. Guest rooms are dressed in white and hardwood decor, and come equipped with flat-screen TVs, Heavenly bath fixtures and sizeable work desks. Travelers also appreciate this Westin's decent room rate, which they say is much lower than that of a Chicago hotel and for which visitors can enjoy access to the property's indoor pool and fitness center. This hotel's restaurants also win favor with visitors, with prime steak served at Harry Caray's Italian Steakhouse and fresh seafood served at Holy Mackerel!. The hotel is even friendlier on the wallets of Marriott Bonvoy program members, who can use points to pay.
