This time I was traveling for business and needed a hotel close to my meetings. The Westin, a chain I always enjoy, was walking distance. From the minute I drove my rental car into the motor lobby, I knew I was in the right place. The staff was helpful (recommending self-park instead of valet, as it was cheaper ($36 overnight self, $49 valet)), and gently assisting me with my bags. The lobby is one floor up, and there I was greeted by a wonderful front desk associate, Ryan Thomas, who got me just what I needed - a quiet room with good work space. And he did it with a sense of humor and a smile. When it was raining later, and I wanted to run down the street to the very convenient Rite-Aid, the concierge was ready and offered to get me an umbrella. I later met my client at the bar, and it is gorgeous. A great place to meet up for a drink (I didn't have one, so I cannot comment on the bar staff) and a chat. My room service meal (turkey blt) was so-so, but the waitress who brought it was delightful and thoughtful. And, in the morning, when I was ready to check out, Karim made it quick and easy. All in all, a great stay.
