This is our second stay at the beautiful Westin La Paloma. The grounds and scenery are a stunningly beautiful desert oasis. Our last stay rated a 9.75 out of 10. This stay rated about an 8.5, and this is why: we checked in on a Monday, around noon, so there was nobody in line to check in. The front desk agent addressed me with a sharp politeness, in a hurried sort of way. She asked if we'd like to participate in the Green program where you get $5 coupons for each day you decline housekeeping service. She said it changed from the last time we had stayed, did not explain how it changed, and handed me 5 coupons. Last time, we could opt in or opt out, daily, which was nice because if you wanted housekeeping one day, you didn't get a coupon. I didn't realize during checkin that by accepting the program this time would be giving up any hint of housekeeping. So this visit, I felt like we had to beg for clean towels, coffee refills, to have the trash emptied, etc. Basics! So, fellows travelers, I recommend not participating in this program, which is a shame because it was so well done on our prior visit!!! Note to front desk: please take your time with the guests, to answer questions, and don't rush them out the door....especially if there's nobody in line.
We spend lots of time at the pool, and the pools are excellent (I'd recommend that they get skimmed more often, however.) The pool staff works very hard to make sure guests are happy.
The food is good and reasonably priced, and there are many awesome restaurants nearby. The concierge (who was very helpful!!) has a list of local favorites.
We'll definitely stay here again!
