JW Marriott vs. Westin {can't decide which room}

We are completely torn on which hotel to choose. We've narrowed it down to either the JW Marriott in a whirlpool suite or Westin in a sala pool suite... price is about the same for either room {Westin is SLIGHTLY cheaper, but really not by much}...

We love the idea of the JW room because the jacuzzi is under a roof, so should there be any bad weather it won't really matter much. The Westin's room seems like it offers more of a bigger plunge pool than a jacuzzi. Not sure about the privacy of either of the locations or view?

Has anyone stayed in either of these rooms? We plan on doing excursions during the day but are looking for a nice, quite, and private place to relax each night.

Thanks!

If beach is of any importance at all the deffinately then go for the JW Marriott.

Did you look at places like Sala Phuket, Anantara, they are both gorgeous

We are also leaning towards the JW, but does Westin not have a beach? On it's website it says it does?

Go for JW will meet your need and around the hotel still more to thing if compare to Westin. But be aware of the beach if it windy DO NOT swim there.

Aloha NY :)

I'm not sure of the room you speak of at the JW Phuket but I can tell you that the property is just gorgeous! Also loved the two baby elephants that were brought out numerous times throughout the day. Their names were Yaya and Lucky. This was mid September 2012. Their owners were so nice letting kids and adults feed

and play with them.

Whatever you decide, have a nice vacation.

Did you read the reviews? That should give you an indication of the pros and cons of both. Westin not enjoying the same beaches as all the other west coast hotels. I
