This is my second stay at the Westin Phoenix Downtown and my second review. In between stays at the Westin I have stayed at the Kimpton Palomar, which is about five blocks south of the Westin. I am a huge Kimpton fan, but I think the Westin compares very favorably to the Kimpton Palomar in a head-to-head competition. What I really love about this Westin are the huge rooms, the huge bathroom with a rain shower, the floor to ceiling windows, and the great views. The Hotel only occupies the 11th to 18th floors of the building, so all of the rooms appear to have good views. The restaurant is not as lively as the Palomar’s Blue Hound, and the menu is less interesting than the Blue Hound. However, the food was good and the service was excellent. Overall, the service at the Westin was excellent.
The Wi-Fi costs 10.00 or 15.00 depending on the speed, whereas its free at Kimpton if you sign up for In-Touch. The surrouding neighborhood is great for tourism, and I think kids would love to stay in this part of Phoenix. Within easy walking distance of the Westin are the Phoenix Children’s Museum (looks awesome), the Arizona Science Center; and Chase Field. The train to the plane stops right across from the hotel’s entrance. I was in a rental, and the drive from the airport rental center to the Hotel took no more than ten minutes.
The hotel’s gym is great, and boasts fine views. There are four ellipitical machines, three bikes, four treadmills, a good rack of free weights and two benches. There are four separate Lifestyle weight machines. Usual assortment of yoga mats, exercise balls, and pilates balls. The gym facility is quite big.
