Looking for comments on comparing the Marriott vs. Westin in PV. Planning a trip (first time) to PV Dec 15-22. Current plan is to stay at the new Hilton Dec 15-18 for a relaxing AI experience, and then switch to either Marriott or Westin for Dec 18-22. With promotions, I can get Westin for effectively $83/nite w/breakfast buffet (taxes incl), wheras Marriott is $115/nite for comparable package. Marriott is ranked higher though on TripAdvisor. Can someone with experience with both resorts comment if the $30/nite premium for the Marriott is justified?
Also, any thoughts on the new Hilton? I am curious to try it and experience AI for the 1st time, but the drawback is switching hotels midway in our vacation. We don't want to do AI all 7 days because we want to do excursions and also experience the city of PV. Is the zone the Hilton is in (North Hotel Zone) a better location (i.e. beach quality) than the Marina district (where Marriott and Westin are)?
Appreciate feedback about pros and cons of these hotels/locations from thise experienced. Thanks in advance!
