“great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

stayed here before a cruise, they were helpful. Nice location but it was dark so could not see much. Room was great. Royal Caribbean uses this as one of their cruise hotels. I enjoyed my very short stay

Second time at the Westin. Hotel is clean, updated, service is great... beds are comfortable, bathrooms and amenities are nice. Great for corporate events, Shula's Restaurant is very nice, and the Westin offers a nice selection of food and beverage for corporate events. Right across the road from the beach.

Well-appointed rooms, terrific service, and lovely hotel, but no balconies. We have stayed here a few times, and, each time I visit, I wish this hotel had balconies. There are just slider doors and railings. However, the location, pool facilities, and friendly staff are outstanding. One of the few hotels, where I have stayed, where the pool attendant called me by my name - a well trained employee.

Room Tip: Get ocean front. The view is worth it.

Love this hotel! Our second stay here! Beautiful oceanfront location with walkway and elevator to beach. Excellent pool area with chair side service. Pool snacks and drinks pricey but delicious. Pool was heated to perfect temperature. Beautiful corner room with panoramic views, heavenly beds sooooo comfy. Whole hotel smells great. Love the bathroom decorations and amenities. I cannot wait to come back!!!!!

I returned to The Westin Beach Resort again this Jan. I had a great time and received Great treatment from the entire staff but special thanks to Ronavia and Courtney. I will always come back to this hotel when I'm in South Florida.

I stayed at this facility for a conference and had a fabulous stay. The young man at the registration desk upgraded me to a 9th floor oceanfront room for which the view was unbeatable. Beautiful facility and rooms (although a "window" to the bathroom seemed a little weird). Well appointed. Outside the hotel you have a wonderful beach and great shopping and restaurant selections within a short walk. I would LOVE to stay here again, but regular (I.e. non-conference!) rates are out of my league at approximately $400/night for the weekend.

I arrived at the Westin Beach Resort this past weekend. It was one of the best vacations I have ever experienced. The hotel was beautiful and the rooms were even more glamorous. The first place I went to after checking in was the bar. I'm not an alcoholic buy "hey I'm on vacation." The bartender greeted me as soon as I sat at the bar. I've never seen such great looking drinks before. I ordered a Mojito (best Mojito ever)! My bartenders name was Kaitlyn Smith, if you ever see her at the bar I recommend you have her make your drinks. I've been to many bars and not all bartenders know how to speak with people. In this instance this was not the case. She was outgoing, perky, and defiantly knew her stuff. The rest of my weekend was amazing. I will definitely be coming back to this resort.
