First, the positives. This hotel has very nice public areas. The lobby is a modern, open space with a cheerful sitting area. The restaurant, the unfortunately named Blue Morel, has a creative menu that delivers good flavors. The service at the hotel is quite good. And like any Westin, the beds are very comfortable.
Still, at the end of the day, a hotel is about its rooms and this hotel's are simply depressing. Barely furnished and done up in dull gray, it is as if the designer deliberately wanted to bring hotel guests down. To make matters worse, the windows are small and let in little light (mine also unfortunately suffered from condensation between the panes). They are covered by cheap plastic blinds covered in safety stickers that fail to keep the room dark. Sadly, when the blinds are open one looks out over the ... parking lot. Adding to the overall bummerness of the room is the tiny bathroom, with its small, crowded tub and cramped sink (though the classic Westin double shower head is always welcome). Even the gym manages to be a bare and dispiriting. All this at a hefty price tag for a suburban hotel.
None of this had to be. This is a large property located on a large plot in the suburbs. It could be divided into nice-size rooms and decorated in bright and lively ways (see just about any Kimpton hotel). Please Westin, take pity on your guests and renovate your rooms, perhaps consider hiring a decorator who uses colors beyond gray and black. You'll be glad you did.
