This Westin has very nice views of the waterways with shells practicing for races. The common areas are very nice. The room we stayed in was a basic Westin room with a comfortable bed. The window was missing its shade, however, and to get privacy we had to use the black out curtin. We stayed one night. The hotel was only 33% filled so the restaurant was closed. we ate in the bar where Paul the bartender treated us very well. As a Gold level guest I expected an upgrade, but none was forthcoming. All in all, though, a good experience. The facility has a good parking garage below the hotel, which provides convenient access to the hotel. There is a charge for parking.
