Hubby and I stayed to check out the new hotel in town and celebrate Valentine's Day. The property itself is in pristine condition (due to the fact it's newly opened) - and all the guest areas are beautiful - the lobby was nicely decorated - great front desk staff, and lobby bartender was exceptionally helpful and made excellent cocktails.
Our room was on the 9th floor - all the room amenities you expect from a Westin - great bedding and bathroom - comfortable and good sized. Our view, however, was not anything I'd want to look at if you were staying for more than a night (it overlooked the air-conditioning machinery and another building across the street) - I'd ask for more of a city view - even if that meant looking at the freeway through town!.
Our only disappointment was the size of the pool area - the surrounding deck is nice enough with cabanas and there will be a bar outside - also some couch/lounge seating - BUT the size of the space and the actual size of the pool are TOO SMALL! Come on Westin - you could have claimed the top spot in town for this - but you didn't think big enough!
