We booked The Westin via a blind booking on Priceline and got a great deal. You always hope to walk into a magically upgraded room with a view of the water but that doesn't happen very often. Our room was clean (but small) and the bed was comfortable. We found free parking on the square, but the hotel offers parking for $18 a night. The hotel is very close to everything you could possibly need- Farmer's Market, liquor store, grocery store and the main bar scene.
My only issue (and this I think is an isolated incident) was that I called the hotel to see if I could guarantee a room with two double beds as we were traveling with a large group and were trying to save some money by splitting the costs. I was told there was a $10 charge, but that it would be guaranteed. Some of the group arrived Friday night and was told that the request they had called in wasn't put on their account, so were given a room at no additional cost (which I thought was great). Because of this, we didn't need two double beds anymore, so when I called the hotel to cancel the request, I was told it hadn't been put on my account in the first place. Thankfully, we didn't need the two beds but it would have been very frustrating if we had arrived with another couple to find one queen bed! As I said I think this was an isolated incident with one staff member not doing their job, and the rest of the staff we encountered was pleasant and accommodating.
Overall we were very pleased with the hotel, and will definitely return in the future!
