The Westin Crowne has an excellent location with plenty of shopping within the Crowne Center.
There's a covered walkway that'll take you directly to Union Station (which always has great exhibits) or to the newly flagged Sheraton Hotel (old Hyatt). The lobby is stunning and the ballroom level has a tropical feel with waterfall and plants leading up to the workout facility.
The heavenly bed did not disappoint as I had one of the best night's sleep in the ultra comfy bedding. The rooms are very spacious with ceiling to floor windows that offer great views of either downtown or the Hallmark Center water fountains.
The Westin has a great workout facility, complete with wet sauna, free weight room, plenty of weight machines, cardiovascular equipment and a really good-sized pool.
To use the workout costs $5 and to me it should be free. I've seen hotel guests walk right into the gym and workout without signing the sign-in sheet. Westin needs to do away with that fee IMO. The only other area I think the Westin has to improve upon is the parking garage situation. The system is flawed where the guest has to write their name and room number on a ticket and hand it to the attendant upon leaving the garage. It takes forever for the attendant to find your name on the printout list (don't know if people use their actual name and room number - it costs $13/day) and if there are 3 or more cars in line, you could be waiting for a while.
Aside from that I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and definitely will return.
