Westin hotel, doubletree or marriott downtown,which is best and why? .
The Westin is a newly remodeled hotel and the area around it is pretty great. The others are fine (older) hotels but they lack the newness and new hip surroundings. They are all within a few blocks of one another.
Westin is on the newly designed Westside. Restaurants and easy walking.
Doubletree is 2 blocks toward the Riverfront. Both are convenient and comp. downtown shuttle can be used, if necessary.
From I hear, the Marriot Hotels could use some updating. I have not stayed in them, so cannot verify.
Enjoy your stay.
The Westin has done a beautiful renovation, Marriott is showing age, doubletree keeps up the property well, the Hampton on 4th is very nice. The Westin area has a great vibe - it is right next to highway 27 so I am not sure if it is noisy on this always busy road? Others- the dwell is quirky and nice, Bluff View is fabulous and BandB ish- new hotels are being completed so check back!
