We stayed at the Westin Grand for multiple nights during our vacation in August 2011 (yes, this review is rather late ;-) ). Our rooms where always nice and clean and even the smaller suites are perfectly ok for two people. As an SPG Platinum, we received upgrades to the deluxe corner suites most of the time, and when the weather is was good, spending some time on the (small) balcony was nice.
During stay, I had a medical emergency and the staff was very helpful in getting a doctor etc. Even though the hotel was fully booked, the made sure my financee would have been able to stay (I needed an emergency operation and was in the hospital).
As mentioned in other reviews, this hotel is not "near" the water (although everything is kind of "near the water here". I would say it takes 20-30 min to walk to the westin bayshore and only 20 min to reach the place where the cruise ships leave. Shops, restaurants and entertainment are close by and in case you want to make use of the kitchenette, there is a large supermarket close by too.
We had a very good time during our stay and will stay here again (actually we will have or next stay tomorrow, which prompted me to write this review, which I wanted to write for over a year ;-) ).
[I rated "value" only average, since the published rates are good, but not great and "Spa", because its rather small. Our rate did not include breakfast, therefore no rating]
