    Highly recommend this property for hotel blocks!!!

    We recently worked with this hotel for a rooming block for our wedding, and we (the bride and groom) stayed in two of the suites here during our wedding weekend and utilized them for getting ready with our wedding party. I cannot say enough good things about our experience! From start to finish the Westin was fair, accommodating, responsive, helpful and super competitive on price! They went above and beyond to make our wedding block affordable and as easy as possible for our guests to book and for us to manage. During the wedding weekend, they took care of us every step of the way. From comping our parking to sending up champagne and treats for us to come back to on our wedding night, they truly made us feel so special and made our wedding weekend that more enjoyable. In addition to the great customer service, it is a beautiful property. The rooms and suites are updated, spacious and clean and the public areas are great as well. We also utilized Pinzimini, the on site restaurant and bar, a great deal throughout the weekend, and it was perfect for our needs. The food was good, the bar was spacious and great for a crowded and service was great! I would highly recommend this hotel---you will not be disappointed!
