Oyster Bay hands down. Westin is very large and cold IMO.

Also, From OBBR you can walk to several great restaurants (Canoa, Big Fish and Daniels by the Sea) right off the property. This is nice for evenings when you do not want to drive. There is a beach bar just down the beach that you can walk to. The resort is just the right size, staff is wonderful, and the infinity pool is beautiful. There are boat rips you can schedule for snorkeling, touring etc at the marina - just a short stroll (also, there is a store to stock up right on the marina dock).

if you choose OBBR you need to be guaranteed a renovated room. OBBR has some unrenovated rooms that are awful and others that are just worn and severely outdated!!!!! while they are continuing the room renovations only about 80% is complete. absolutely love this area but will not return to OBBR until all room renovations are complete. just too iffy! have not stayed at the westin but it looks like a prison from the outside. have heard hit and miss about the service too.

We have stayed both places and like both. OBBR has kitchens so you can have lunch/breakfast in. Agree with previous post that very good restaurants are walkable and the views at OBBR are spectacular with the marina on one side and the ocean on the other. We have stayed in the unrenovated rooms at OBBR and since we don't spend that much time in the room, they were fine and are clean. Given the choice, I would opt for OBBR.
