We stayed here while visiting some friends in the area. During our stay there was a dance competition going on but the hotel never felt crowded. Check in staff was pleasant, but they really should have more than one person at the front desk. The line was long when we arrived and moved rather slowly. Another staff member would have been helpful. Not a big deal since we weren't in any hurry, but the other guests in line were grumbling. I reserved two king connecting rooms and that's exactly what I got. Didn't have to remind the gentleman at check-in...very nice.
Rooms were clean, the beds were wonderful and both our rooms had a stocked bar. Prices for the in-room beverages and snacks were sky high - but that's typical of any hotel. Wi-fi was $9.99 per room. While we were here for pleasure and not business, we still forked over the money so my husband could do a little work late in the evenings. Bathrooms were roomy, the double shower heads were nice but the toiletries were scarce. One tiny bottle of shampoo and ONE little bar of soap. Glad we brought our own.
Harry Carrey (sp) restaurant in the lobby was convenient. We ate here on a Friday night (really didn't want to venture out our first night in town). Food was pretty good, not great. Not sure I would recommend it since there are so many other great food options nearby. We ate breakfast at Egg Harbor Cafe (in the Mall)...just a one minute drive from the hotel parking lot. Prices were good and the food was excellent. Get there early, however, as it fills up fast!
The hotel pool, whirlpool and sauna were very nice. My daughter loved the pool toys! We forgot our pool stuff at home so we were thrilled to see a pile of items (noodles, balls, buckets, etc) available for the guests. There is no shallow end - the entire pool is about 4 feet deep.
This was my first stay at a Westin (we are Hilton Honors and Marriott Club members and usually go with those chains first) but this one was very convenient to our friend's house and we thought being close to the mall would be a definite bonus. While we enjoyed our stay very much and would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area, I'm not sure I would personally rush to book a Westin again. It's a typical chain hotel with a very good product, BUT it didn't WOW me enough to steer me away from my usual choices. I am now officially an SPG member with some points in my account so we'll see where it takes us from here.
