The staff at the Westin make this a great place to visit (i.e. live) as I've been there every week for the last 6 months. Lauren at the front desk takes care of anything I need and always has a smile on her face. She's a breath of fresh air during a stressful week of travel and helps me with any/all of the special needs that arise for a road warrior like me - she even asks about my girlfriend by name!! You can tell Lauren really cares about the hotel guests and wants to make their stay as comfortable as possible.
The bar is a little small and can get crowded during the busy times, but the bartender makes up for any shortcomings. He knows half of the bar by name and remembers you, your drink, and your travel schedule. I made friends with him the first week I stayed at the Westin and it's always nice to go down and have a drink with the best bartender in town when I can.
As for the hotel - it's your typical business hotel. A nice starbucks café on the ground level and they have a nice pool here (indoor and outdoor), but I've never used it.
The gym is kind of bad, 4 treadmills and 2 bikes with a small rack of free weights. But, I asked the staff about the gym and was given vouchers for the gym across the street. As an SPG member they always upgrade me to a nice suite when available. On one occasion they even upgraded me to the Presidential Suite.
Overall the hotel is a standard business hotel, but the staff there makes the difference!
