My wife and I wanted to get away for a night and we got our room via a Priceline bid for less than $85. We parked in the long term deck directly across from the hotel, which cost $20 for 24 hours (valet parking is $22 a night). Tip if you're parking in the long term deck: try to park in section C (the middle of the deck), then take the C elevator up to the 8th floor. If you exit the doors near the elevator, you are directly across the street (curbside pick up) from the valet parking entrance to the Westin. If you don't know this, you'll end up walking for what seems like a mile from your parking spot, to the elevator, to the walkway that takes you through more of the parking deck, over the street and into the terminal. I'm serious when I say this shortcut will make an 8-10 minute walk into more like 3-5. Your feet will thank me later.
We requested a plane view and had a nice view over the Delta terminal, where we could watch the planes arrive and leave. While a lobby view would be nice (the trees were beautiful), people could see into an interior view room when leaving the elevator if the blinds were open.
We ordered out from Beirut Restaurant, an awesome Middle Eastern restaurant just up the street that also delivers (you will meet their delivery person in the valet parking lobby). I don't exaggerate when I say that one of their sandwiches will suffice for lunch or dinner (and are 1/2-2/3 less cost than getting a platter).
One other note--the windows are soundproofed well, so minimal noise was heard from the planes. Very few late night flights at all, so sound was not a hindrance to our sleep. Their bedding didn't hurt, either! It was like sleeping on a cloud.
