Quick Get Away

My fiancé and I needed to get away for a few days and decided to stay at the Westin based on it's close proximity to downtown. It's right beside Jackson's Bistro, which had an excellent Brunch buffet that we experienced on Sunday. We had a great time.

The hotel has a slight vintage feel, but well maintained. It is situated bayfront and allows for some very relaxing evenings. The hotel is close to everything! You will find the staff very friendly and professional. Great stay.

Vacation with my daughter

Our hotel and staff were wonderful! Very convenient having the rental agency in the same building. Had a great time watching Walking Dead by the restaurant on their HUGE flat screen TV. We drew a bit of a crowd. There was not any food service in that area, but the bartender brought us our food anyway, and continued to serve us throughout the night. Thank you for a wonderful experience!!
