I loved this hotel! It was amazing and so clean. We asked if we could have a late check-out time and they were so accommodating. I didn’t have any trouble. Everything was clean and with Covid I’m very very picky. They even provided a complimentary face mask, sanitizer, touch free tool, and 2 water bottles. The only thing that bothered me was that there was a candy stain (honestly I don’t know what it was... I’m thinking snickers?) on the wall in room 308. So if you don’t have that room then no candy stain lol we also got there close to midnight which is when their check-in time ends but they were still helpful and nice in providing food options for us. Uber eats was the way to go. As for parking... it was a little weird. We paid $30 a day to park it with the Westin valet service. We parked right in front of the hotel and dropped our bags off in the room and then drove to the Westin which is 1 block away and walked back to the hotel. It’s like a 3 to 5 minute walk. They explain this to you and give you directions as soon as check in. It isn’t hard but just so you know.

The lobby and rooms are beautiful, great aesthetic. Need was comfy, and the espresso machine was a nice touch. Full size soap and lotion. So luxurious. Water dispenser at the end of the hall was awesome! No more running to the store for plastic bottles. Room was drafty because it had old windows, bathroom was vented, but no fan, so it fogged up. Just wish the hotel upgraded these when they renovated. Overall, still very satisfied, and would stay again.
