“Centrally located, Waterfront”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

We stayed at the Westin for 4 nights recently and found it to be centrally located (easy walking distance to everywhere), with a nice pool area and good restaurant. We had an ocean view that overlooked the bar and pool; no noises from the courtyard or the hallway. The room was nicely appointed and clean, but the ceiling of the room looked like it was beginning to peel. The room's air conditioner was loud and made quite a bit of noise when it cycled on. Absolutely loved the Westin robes.
Other reviews have spoken about the cruise ships docking and one did show up early Monday morning, but we were on the side of the hotel where the ship did not block our view and the staff told us that the ship departed by mid-afternoon.
I will stay at the Westin on my next trip to Key West.

This was the first time I ever stayed at a Westin. We got a great off-season rate, during the week. We had a partial waterview from our patio, which was lovely, but we were not in a room close to the water, and it was a low view, on the first floor. The room was large, quiet, nicely decorated, and clean. There was a bathrobe. The pool area was nice, but not fancy. It was always easy to find chairs together. We watched the sunset from the bar above the pool bar. It was the perfect view, away from the Mallory Square crowds below (we've seen the street performers many times already). We did not have a lot of contact with staff. The man who checked us in gave us instructions as to how to find the concierge office (it's not in the lobby) but we could not find it. We had drinks at the pool bar once and at the bar above that once and the bartenders were efficient but not particularly friendly. There was no bar service at the pool, and the pool towel service was help-yourself. We did not use the spa, gym, restaurant, or stores. I would stay here again.

This was our first stay at this Westin. We found the location excellent, no need for a car after the valet parks it ! You can walk to Duval St & Mallory Square. The staff was very friendly. The room on the second floor was great compared to the ground level room that they first assigned us. We walked in & promptly walked out and back to the desk to request a different room. The problem was solved & the 2nd floor room had a nice little balcony & much nicer bathroom. The beds are extremely comfortable with sufficient amount of pillows which is a big plus. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Request a higher floor with a balcony. The first floor rooms do not have a place to sit outside unle...

Great location. Enjoy the sundown festivities right next door at Mallory Square every evening. Staff very friendly, and the concierge very helpful. Within convenient walking distance to everything you want to see, or all the great restaurants. We have been here twice, and will definitely be back.

Really couldn't have asked for much more. Located just by the harbour, it's just a couple of minutes away from Sloppy Joes on Duval and all the rest of them. Make sure you get a room with a pool side view as one facing the towards the town isn't particularly nice. Also totally amazing is the Sunday brunch, far superior to anything I've ever had in Vegas.

Room Tip: Ask for poolside, rather than pay the extra for partial ocean view.

This was our second stay at the Westin and it was just as wonderful as the first time. We booked an oceanview room and since we liked our first one so much, I requested one similar. They were able to give us one that was two doors down from the previous room. It looked out over the marina and the gulf. Now some people don't like the fact that cruise ships do dock there. However, they are not there every day (although they are most days) and they are usually gone well before sunset. We enjoy watching the ships come in, dock, passengers coming and going, and the ship departing. It is not something we see every day at home! We have gorgeous views before the ship comes in and after it leaves. During the day, we are out and about in the city, so it doesn't matter. But we spend our mornings on the balcony with the warm breezes and sometimes the evenings after sunset. It is so peaceful to watch the moon shine over the water and the smaller boats make their runs to Sunset Key.

We were treated very well by everyone we met. The room smelled so clean and fresh when we entered. The beds are the most comfortable of any hotel we have stayed in. Housekeeping was wonderful. The room was always clean and made up well. We love the location and convenience of the Westin.

Located next to the pier where the cruise ships come in. This is a plus and a minus. There are lots of shops and great places to visit in the area. The negative is there can be lots of people. That personally did not bother me, however I understand how it might bother some people.

The staff was WONDERFUL! Very well trained and very helpful and professional.

The rooms we nice and clean. The bed was very comfortable, would you expect less from a westin property?

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean view room.
