The hotel is nice, but this did not provide a "Westin value." The hotel has MANDATORY valet parking...at $40 PER DAY and then has a $30 per day resort fee. The resort fee supposedly covers the internet, use of the pool and fitness center (which I would have assumed is included based on the per night price) and "complimentary" water. Although I'm not sure hot complimentary anything is when you have to pay for it. The restaurant in the lobby had bad service as well. My wife and I went to get two drinks and a slice of cheesecake at the hotel bar. The cheesecake never came and the host refused to help us get the cake removed from our bill. Finally the bartender came back over to our side of the bar (where another couple was also sitting and had the same experience) and took care of removing the cheesecake from our bill. Again the hotel itself was nice, but $40 per day for mandatory valet service PLUS a resort fee put us out an additional $350 before we even stepped foot in our room. Don't let the overall experience score mislead you, I would not recommend staying here, as there are other hotels with equally good locations, as well as boutique hotels (including the North Beach Hotel) in the area that would provide better value.
Pros: Location to the beach. Pool was nice as well.
Cons: Additional high costs and not great customer service. Don't think there was enough value.

Pros: Loved that it was right on the beach. Beds and pillows were super comfortable! We had to stay at the W next door because air conditioning wasn't working one night, but they upgraded us to an oceanfront room the next day. Food was good!
Cons: Was a little outdated, but still a great value. At times it had a musty smell. But was very clean overall and staff was nice and professional. Would stay there again.

Pros: It was right on the beach and within walking distance to several restaurants and a CVS.
Cons: I did not like that you were forced to valet (no self-parking) for $36/da! We had not budgeted for that. Also, the bathroom was weird: the door and little window were more like plantation shutters, so there was very little privacy even when shut.
