The entrance is not imposing, but immediately makes you feel welcomed. Some hotels with large aria feel quite business-like and busy. The Westin had christmas decorations up, and tasteful music playing. There were soft couches around the christmas tree, and free wi-fi in the foyer.
My room, overlooking the river and the riverwalk, was stylishly, and timelessly furnished and decorated. The blinds were good, not outstanding, but I was there for a conference, so sadly did not get to sleep in, despite the supremely comfortable bed.
A bathtub that drained too slowly was promptly fixed. The gym was on the small side, but there was enough variety to keep me going. I liked the system where you get a $5 credit for every day you refuse housekeeping. It is really unnecessary to have your room cleaned and fresh linen every day.
I ate at the restaurant for breakfast, which was ok. The scrambled eggs were a little crumbly, the coffee service a little patchy. I almost had a heart attack looking at the breakfast bread pudding, with creme anglaise to go on top, but it was tasty. I also had lunch there once, I was on my way to the airport and was dining alone, so did not want to hang around, but the service was painfully slow. Made me want to withold a tip, but in the States, that would be considered extremely rude, so I deliberately gave it to the girl who was most helpful. The food was reasonable, and it was very pleasant out on the riverwalk with a cold corona on a warm winters day.
Highly recommended hotel.
