The Westin Chicago North Shore is a beautiful new hotel located in Wheeling, Illinois, a northwest suburb of Chicago. The hotel has many amenities that Capricon members enjoy:

The Westin’s Heavenly Bed® and Heavenly Shower/Bath®
100% Non-Smoking hotel rooms
LCD Flat-screen TVs
High-Speed Wireless Internet in all hotel rooms (daily charge applies)
WestinWORKOUT® room and pool

There are currently two restaurants in the hotel, although a third is expected to open later in 2010. There are also several other nearby restaurants for your enjoyment, including a Cooper’s Hawk in the hotel parking lot area.

The Westin is a completely non-smoking hotel, and will charge huge damage costs for people who smoke in their rooms.

We strongly encourage you to book your room early. This will increase your chance to get the type of room you want, and will also ensure that you don’t accidentally miss the closing date for our room block reservations (January 18, 2011).
