Recent reviews

Very good 8,0 From 500 reviews

Good 6,0
I thought we requested 2 queen beds but perhaps not. We had 2 double beds which was a bit tight with a 16 & 18year old. the lobby entrance was under renovation - perhpas we could have been told as I didn't realize and my first impression of a Westin was that it was not up to its brand. Once I realized the renos it made sense. The room was just too small for a family with teens. Beds super comfy and staff very nice however. Location is amazing!
