Very nice rooms but not many amenities

I really loved the rooms and bathrooms at this hotel. They are modern, comfortable, and come with a great balcony. We also liked the pool even though it was ice cold. This hotel offers decent rates but when you add in the other costs, I definitely will not be staying here again. There is no breakfast unless you pay the $22 pp rate to eat downstairs. For a family, that really adds up. We had to retrieve our car and go out to Village Inn or Dunkin Donuts every morning. You are expected to pay a resort fee which is ridiculous because this hotel isn't a 'resort.' and offered no amenities. Lastly, you have to pay to park onsite ($17 per day). It cost us more to park here than it did at the Cabana Bay at Universal Studios! Add that all up.... and I would rather stay at a better hotel!

rooms

I reserved two rooms and we were put on different floors which was not convenient for us. Also I felt the couch might not be very clean.

You get what you pay for

I stayed here for one night & was pleased but not impressed. The lobby was beautiful as was the pool area & gym, the room was spacious & at first glance was fairly clean. However, upon further inspection, the room wasn't too clean. Coffee stains lined all the items in the kitchenette, the bathroom seemed to have mold or mildew in the tiles, there was food on the balcony floor. The staff was polite however not too welcoming otherwise. The only thing about this hotel I honestly was impressed by was the Westin Weekend Late Checkout of 3 pm on Sunday. I probably won't be coming back, for only a bit more I could stay at the Hilton or Hyatt, seems a bit more justifiable for what I'm paying for.

Spring Break couples getaway

I absolutely love this hotel, the staff are amazing!!!!! Anything I needed service was right there in a blink of an eye. The only thing I had a issue with was the fact out room felt very moist, overall I loved the experience! Best food spots close to the hotel is Señor Frogs and Bahamas Breeze!!!!!

Decent accommodations for late booking!

Booked late in a pinch & was well received with a 9/10 for hotel readiness. May have been coincidental, but was pleased overall for the cost and the time. Would book again in a pinch.

A good quick getaway

I spent Christmas Day at the Westin in Orlando and was pleasantly surprised by the responsiveness of the staff. Christmas is one of the busiest periods in Disney area and this hotel was up to to the task by responding quickly to all requests for information and or service. We had a very short but pleasant stay.

Nice hotel

It's a very nice hotel. I was disappointed in one thing, the breakfast buffet and the fact that our waiter did not ask the age of my daughter. I was charged the adult plate of $19. When we returned to the restaurant again the next morning, the waitress asked how old my daughter was, and based on her age the plate was $7! That's a huge difference!

great except parking

Great location, nice restaurant on site, and a suites style hotel with balconies. Each morning when returning from my run outside the doorman had a cold water and towel for me. Nice touch! The only negative is they charge $15 a night to park, even if you self park.

nice weekend getaway

Hotel was very nice clean. Has an elegant modern feel. When I arrived in my room there was a nice comfy robe waiting for me on the bed. Restaurant is a bit over priced. Overall it was nice pleasant experience. Will definitely stay here again.
