When I recently attended a weekend festival hosted at the Westin, I was excited to take advantage of a special group rate (which I found out later was the same price available on any of the popular travel sites) and enjoy what I expected to be 4-star or better accommodations. So despite living within easy driving distance, I decided to...

Dear Susan M, Thank you for choosing to stay with us last weekend for the Interfusion Festival. In reading your comments, it is clear that your stay was far from enjoyable and I would like to extend my sincere apologies. I will admit that we were overwhelmed at times this past weekend with the size of the crowd that attended...

Enjoyed my stay here, it's a very new and clean. Bathroom excellent, closet roomy, bed very very comfortable, curtains easy to operate and high quality. Like the bonus points for declining maid service. And thank you Westin for always having coffee makers! It's amazing that some of the high end chains think coffee should only be ordered with room service,...

To begin with, everything about this hotel is what one expects of a Westin --- classy, clean, exceedingly comfortable, with all the amenities of home. What may a bit different is that this hotel, located across from the courthouse, is actually in a rather quiet cul-de-sac, just a block or two away from the heavily trafficked thoroughfares of Olde Towne...

When we arrived it sure seemed like the perfect hotel. Restaurant in lobby was very convenient and the menu was average priced for the area. Room was nice with a view of the Masonic Temple. Those were the pros. Cons were the daily cleaning that we have come to expect with our travels. Dirty glasses were left in the room...

Dear kath, Thank you for staying with us recently. I was disappointed to read your comments concerning our housekeeping service and would like to take this opportunity to offer my sincere apologies. Our performance clearly left a lot to be desired. As I was reading some of your commentary, it appears that there might have been a misunderstanding on our...

The Wyndham was full so we moved to the Westin. Paid a premium price, but the hotel, staff and especially shuttle were great. The beds were comfy and the area quiet. Check in and check out were quick and easy. Our luggage was stored after check out until time to go to the train station. The shuttle picked us up...

This is a very nice hotel. We stayed for New Years however the hotel did not have any celebratory event. We partied at the neighboring Carlyle Place.

Rooms are clean and spacious, the TV was amazing and bed was really comfy. Reception was also good no complains, the shuttle service was very useful. Stay here as I had a training to attend near by. Breakfast options limited, but manageable. Overall a good and reasonably good hotel.
