I stayed at Westin for 5 nights for a Business Conference. I have only one word to describe the experience - "Awesome". Below are my ratings of the place on various aspects
1. Location: Full marks for the location. It is bang on the beach and you cannot ask for more being in Miami. A late night walk or an early morning jog is blissful on the beach.
2. Distances to key places: This place is about 45 mins away from Miami International airport and about 20 mins away from Aventura mall (in case you want to do some shopping). Walmart is just 10 mins away on foot.
3. Rooms: Rooms are neat and clean and so are the bathrooms. Some of the corner rooms have huge balconies on which you can have a nice party.
4. Housekeeing: This is one area where improvement is required. Stocking up the room with bottles of water (complimentary) is something that the housekeeping does not do on their own. You have to ask them each time for couple of extra bottles.
5. Meeting rooms & Banquet halls: This hotel has amazingly huge banquet halls (Capacity 7000 pax). So its ideal for planning any conferences etc.
6. Food: The food served on all the days was great. Being a vegetarian, I usually struggle whenever i travel abroad. But the offering here was pretty good and manageable.
7. The cafe: I had breakfast at the cafe twice. The spread was disappointing. For the $30 charge, the number of options available is minuscule. I've had better breakfasts that have been better value for money.
