This Westin is just ok compared to other Westin’s we’ve stayed in. The carpet looks old and dreary. There is some mold around the shower base. The walls are paper thin. We heard our neighbors most of the night. And again early in the morning. Staff is very pleasant. Nice private beach with watercraft to rent.

Really liked the rooftop bar and pool. We did not have the cleanest room upon arrival. The name bathroom toilet was CLEARLY not touched by the cleaning crew.

Nice facility and location, however, the resort fee and parking fee (valet only) make the "per night" rate much higher. I would stay here again, but not during peak like we did. Bar and pool area were crowded so the service was slow and some of the staff had obvious signs of fatigue and annoyance. Room was very nice and clean.

The location is GREAT, it’s a close walk to the downtown area. The staff is very pleasant. Best part was the rooftop where you can pretty much see everything.
