Nice property, just really needs to work on the little things, and that's frustrating.
The location is great, definitely don't recommend driving there unless you absolutely have to, parking is expensive. That's to be expected downtown though. The restaurant is good as well, as a plat, the free breakfast is fantastic, appreciate that. The gym isn't bad, free weights are in a little room that's a bit cramped, but lots of treadmills. Again, location is great, but so are about 15 other hotels within a few square miles. If there are rooms with a good view, I didn't get it.
I took a few pictures of what really needs to improve, given the cost of this hotel and the fact that Westin's are marketed as higher quality than a lot of hotels that actually do this right.
1. I hate, hate, hate rooms with no electrical outlets by the bed. This is 2012, not 2002, people have smart phones, and they constantly need charged. Making me move the mattress and unplugging the alarm clock is annoying.
2. What is the point of a ironing board that is wrinkled? I imagine most people don't care about this, as most people hate to iron, but if it's there for the people that do, it should actually be useful.
