$40 day parking $15pd Internet RIPOFF

If you book on here you get the [*] room, and then to top it off the hotel is a total rip off as far as prices, you have to pay $40 per ay for parking, $15 per day for internet, and $5 for a can of coke... they automatically add 18% to any food order and a $2 surcharge... this place is not worth the money...

Disappointing for a Westin

I have stayed at many Westin Hotels and had a great experience. This hotel charged an exorbitant fee for local phone calls which puts international travelers, (I have a US cell plan) at a big disadvantage. Also, the towels and beds were just not what I expect at a Westin. I would also expect internet fees to be included in the price. The staff was very gracious.

New Years Eve

This might not be a true representation of the hotel because of the fact that they were getting ready for the raid by the U18s (under aged alcoholic party animals). Nonetheless, the bed sheets were not clean and had to be replaced by the maintenance guys (yup... you heard it) at 11:45 PM. We celebrated the New Year with them!

second visit

everything was great just like the week before, however the room service was nothing like the week before I would like to think the problem was that they were short handed due to the festival that weekend. If that was not the problem or reason I would be terribly disappointed. that would explain why the maid would not take the tip.

16th floor mediocrity

Nothing stands out about our stay at this hotel. My husband's annual conference was held at the convention center, so this was a good location for that. I walked around the largest dog event in North America, called Woofstock, and the markets. I used the spa services, which were nice but very pricey. Concierge staff was pretty good, though parking service was troublesome.

Westin

The rooms are a bit worn from what i've experienced at other Westin properties. The parking is expensive and inconvenient and the entrance to the hotel is confusing. Good location, so so value.

Good Hotel, Nice Location

Stayed for a conference. Conference breakout rooms were sometimes very far away from each other. Fitness room had good equipment, but given the size of the hotel, is too small - had to wait 15-20 minutes for cardiovascular machines. Customer service was fantastic (which I always find at a Westin.)
