I stayed at the Westin for a wedding in the hotel. The hotel rate was very reasonable but I know I had a wedding rate deal. The room was clean when I got there and very comfortable.

Dear rachelnyc23, Hope you enjoyed the wedding and regrets regarding your embarrassing encounter with our housekeeper on your late check out day. It appears that our housekeeper did not see the "Do not Disturb" sign on your door or hear any responses to her repeated door knocks. Believing the room to be unoccupied, she entered with her key for cleaning... More

The common areas of this hotel are nice enough. I did expect something for being a gold level, as it was we were placed on the second floor. The unsatisfactory design of the guest rooms is the real problem. The desk surface is ample, but the desk chair is thoroughly uncomfortable. The upholstered chair is little, like a doll’s chair,...
