    great rooms for your out of town guests

    We had a room block for our guests. All of the rooms are a little bit different which is unique. Nice downtown location too.

    Lovely Staff in Bar

    We stayed 5 days for our wedding. We visited the restaurant every day during our stay. Can’t say enough good things about the staff in the hotel and restaurant. Very accommodating and friendly!

    Thank you for your positive feedback of our staff. We are very fortunate to have such great associates that care.

    Great venue!!

    We absolutely loved using the Westin as our reception venue. We worked with one wedding planner at the beginning, but shortly after booking, she moved. With that, we worked with Natalie for the majority of the planning and she was absolutely incredible. We met twice before the wedding to talk through the details and she answered countless emails with lots of questions. The day could not have went better and the Westin staff was fantastic, both at the hotel overall and those working the event. We were very happy with the food (steak and goat cheese stuffed chicken) and the alcohol (we did the highest package). The only thing that was just okay were the appetizers. It was very important to us that there was not much waiting around for food- and this was perfect for the evening. We also had our guests meet us at the hotel bar the Friday before the wedding. The staff was great there. We had 60+ rooms reserved at the hotel for out of town guests. Caitlin was very helpful with the block and all of our guests seemed happy with their rooms!

I love the look of the posh Westin Hotel. When I play a harp job there, I have good help from the time I drive up to the front door. The gentlemen greeters/porters ask how they can help and stand back if I say "this only I carry!" I'm particular with my expensive gold leaf harp, bench & stand. I've played for the Re-Grand Opening Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony, Two weeks of High Tea following, many corporate events and also several weddings/cocktail hours. I always feel like I'm in an important place! Miriam Weber Brown, Harpist
