First time returning to the Westin after Covid year and very disappointed ! A ghost town! The beautiful bar is now under construction until March…the small room by the street now hosts a restaurant and a temporary bar lol that closes at 8 pm….one glass of Cabernet wine $19 lol….I gave it back! Only saw 3 employees throughout the entire hotel…. OMG …. What used to be The Holiday Gathering Venue is now a boring, ghost town! Tired of Covid being an excuse! Westin! You are now on the SAD list😔

No restauraunts open,no bar open, no breakfast offered, no pool and location not ideal. Was not recognized as Marriott platinum member. Get the same services here as Motel 6 , stay further downtown. Staff never at front desk always hiding out back watching tv. Not what a Westin should be. When checked in Tv did not work nor did heat in room. Maint did fix later on and was nice.

Excellent stay for business travel. Rasheeda at front desk was wonderful. Room was upgraded with my Bonvoy status. Ample space in king corner suite. Clean and huge room with lots of natural light. Would return. Easy access to river front for walking and running.

I visited this beautiful historic hotel for a quick one night stay. I wish I could have stayed longer as the hotel was very clean and the staff was so pleasant. There was a wedding in the hotel that night but the desk was able to put me in a room away from any noise.

Can’t recommend this hotel. 3:30am a group of people came back to the hotel and were yelling and slamming doors. Called Securitiy several times and they couldn’t get it to stop (past 4am) I suggested the police, they never were called. If you want a good night sleep and not a crazy hotel go somewhere else! The lady at the front desk hung up on me as well, she didn’t care about the situation that lasted over 1hr. Nothing was done for compensation. Do NOT stay here!
