So I wish there was a *good* ranking. Instead I'm forced to choose between average and very good. I decided to go with average, because there were a couple things about the hotel that need addressing.
First: The Very good. The lobby is pleasant, check in was fast, every staff member was helpful and attentive. The self-parking (I'm cheap) was a walk of 60-80 yards maybe. They had golf carts roaming the parking lot to ferry people back and forth which was heaven sent in this summer heat. The bathrooms are really large and the bathtubs (separate from the shower) are new claw-footed monstrosities of awesome. Seriously, they are sooooo deep and wonderful. Everything was very clean.
The good: I did not have a river view so my room faced the freeway (cheap remember). My room got plenty of light and I didn't hear any excessive freeway noise. The rooms are average size, with a flat screen TV and free mini-fridge, plus a pretty comfortable bed with nice linen. The restaurant food was perfectly decent, and the staff even fixed one of my colleagues up a snack after they had closed for the night.
The not-so-great. The air conditioner bangs every time it comes on or shuts off. This was true of my colleagues rooms as well. They all mentioned AC noise and a couple of us were woken up by it. Valet felt to pricey for the location at $22/day especially since the self-parking can fill up and guests may not have an option but to valet. A couple of people mentioned some freeway noise, so if you're a light sleeper it might be an issue. Although if you're a light sleeper the AC (in summer) would probably be a problem.
If Westin quiets the AC I'd probably rate them as *very good*. All that said, I'd stay there again for business, but I might bring ear plugs if its summertime.
