Hotel room was dirty. Housekeeping left a dirty towel on our sink in the bathroom and the toilet whiz covered with specks that look like blood. They did upgrade up us and took off the hotel fee. Then I realized when checking out that the whole stay was way more than what I booked they Expedia. I know there are certain charges but the room it’s self was 60-70 bucks more than original price. Disappointed since this trip was for my birthday.

Westgate Hotel is beautiful and room was spacious and clean. The location was good for access to convention center and waterfront. The streets and area around it were plagued with homeless encampment and polluted.

Ive stayed here 2 times in the last month. The customer service is phenomenal. I was a little disappointed both times that the AC wasnt cranking in our room when we checked in considering it was very hot and humid outside. It did take a while for that to kick in but otherwise great hotel. Friendly staff. Superb location!!

Front desk staff was helpful, and one of the valet attendents was also very kind! But, another valet attendant on arrival, was not helpful. While unloading our baggage at the valet stand, my partner asked the attendant if we could use a luggage cart. The attendant told him that I refused service, which I did not. I was not asked if I wanted this service. I said "No I didn't," and the attendant continued to stand behind the valet stand and did not assist us further. Our room had a nice view, but it was mostly obstructed due to a broken shade that we could not roll up. Our TV did not have a remote, I searched every where in the room and could not find it upon our arrival! The hotel has a beautiful lobby and spacious rooms, but I was very disappointed and expected a higher caliper of service for the price we paid.

The entrance, the lobby, and the decor of the lobby gave you a classic upscale hotel feeling. The gym is out of this world. It’s the best gym I’ve visited out of all the hotels I’ve stayed at. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. That’s where all the positives end. We’d stayed on the 8th floor, and as soon as the door opens, it started to smell pretty bad. Not a problem, probably just need to change their air filters. As soon as we got in our room, all the glamour downstairs, all the classy decor, and that upscale feeling goes away. The unpleasant smell amplifies in the room with its own unpleasant odor. Everything in the room felt like it was cutting corners. At first the, I thought the marble themed bathroom was nice. The. As I got closer, I noticed many deficiencies. The shower: I’m 6’0” and I had to squat down or manually remove the shower head to shower. The glass door to the shower sways open, and the it only covers half of the tub, forcing you to try and stick to one side so you don’t get the floors slippery wet. Then, as I come out of the shower bare feet, the carpet feels sticky gross, forcing me to put on my socks. The bed was comfortable, until my girlfriend spotted dried PERIOD blood on the sheets in the morning. I joked around with her at first but she was disgusted. Don’t shower in the room if you can go next door to the gym to do so. 1000x better. This really isn’t the hotel’s problem, but we were surrounded by homeless encampments. beware.

It was amazing! So beautiful and elegant decor. The service was incredible, especially the valet service/bellmen! Front desk concierge upgraded our stay to a suite and our little ones had a ball! They felt like they were in the Beast’s castle from beauty and the beast. They LOVED the shower and the pool. Hubby and I really enjoyed the outdoor gym located next to the pool. We highly recommend this hotel :)
