The Westin Westminster Promenade is a large, well appointed hotel, with friendly staff and a dog-friendly policy. Although I attend a fairly specialized business event held here yearly, I appreciate the availability of different restaurants in the adjacent Promenade. This comes in handy because the hotel's restaurant, Kachina, is pretty exclusively southwest "cuisine." I like southwest inspired food, but 4 days in a row?? I think not.
Room service is shockingly affordable, and relatively prompt. Although they got one of my orders wrong, the food is still tasty. I suffered in silence.
Other features of note are the AMC movie theaters at the promenade--the front desk has printouts of movie times for your convenience--and the delightful Butterfly Pavilion just across the street. The hotel caters to weddings and other tourist activities, so you might take advantage of those instead of hitting the pretty generic pool.
The drawbacks to this hotel are twofold, in my opinion.
First, it's a great distance from the airport (which itself is in the middle of next to nowhere), and has no airport shuttle so you are forced to take an $80+ taxi ride or get jounced around by a commercial shuttle that might make multiple stops before arriving in Westminster. Very inconvenient if one has an early morning departure.
Second, the hotel and restaurant menus are not really extensive enough to accommodate various diet restrictions or choices. Very little is gluten free. Very little is vegan or even vegetarian-friendly. Very little is even remotely health-conscious, although they do note "super foods" on the menu. I recommend going across the promenade to the Thai restaurant (Tuk Tuk, where they happily customize your tasty and inexpensive meal).
So, overall, not bad but could be better. I'm stuck there due to the convention I attend. But you don't have to be!
