Chose the Westin for proximity to USNA, and got a good rate from Hotwire.
The layout of the hotel and the parking garage underneath is confusing. (Not true that you are FORCED to use Valet. There is a self-park garage located onsite, which is a city-owned garage, not owned by Westin, so parking caps at $10.) The checkin desk is difficult to find.
I called the hotel before our arrival to ask about the free shuttle as my plan was to use this as a way to get closer into the heart of the old town area and near the gates of the USNA. Was assured the shuttle was available whenever needed. We asked to use shuttle after arrival to return to USNA, and while the valet was happy to send us along our way, the shuttle driver was not. He had just returned from a run, and muttered to the valet, "After this run, just tell people the shuttle isn't running today."
Our first night there, some yabbo pulled the fire alarm in the middle of the night. There were several parties going on that Friday night; a corporate party, and a wedding. These parties are the responsibility of the hotel, and if guests get unruly due to too much alcohol and disturb other guests, well...whose fault is that? Not mine; the hotel did nothing, not even offering an apology.
The hotel is masked with modern furnishings, but underneath, the services are just typical. The plugs in the desk lamp were broken, so I had to climb under the desk for an outlet. Plus, $10 per day for internet. That one really irks me when you can get it free at Holiday Inn! Free Wi-Fi should be the norm these days, even at "luxury" hotels.
Service a little lacking for what they expect you to pay for all the amenities. I don't plan on staying there again.
