    Disappointing

    Resort was beautiful. Room had no hot water. Shower head only went up to my shoulders so had to bend to wash my hair. Room wasn’t made up during the day (had to call). No turndown service. For a high end resort, i was disappointed.

    Oversold on our room type

    The hotel itself looked amazing. However, when we arrived. We were told that they had oversold our room type and wanted to squeeze four adults into a king room with two roll away beds. That was not an option, given that I paid extra for a nicer room. The front desk clerk was not very helpful which annoyed me even more after a very long day of travel. Had to settle on going next door to the Sheraton where they gave us two rooms since they had nothing left that was appropriate for 4 adults. Wish I could give a real review, but I really can’t. Ended up in a lesser room for 4 nights. While the Sheraton was extremely accommodating and the hotel okay, it is not the Westin. Not sure who’s responsibility it is when rooms are oversold - Hotels.com or the Westin? But no party has taken responsibility yet. Extremely disappointed with my experience here.

    It's a maybe.....

    A bunch of us stayed at the Westin and Sheraton this weekend for a baseball tournament. These properties are connected and therefore you can use both, its a couple minute walk. I chose the Westin because the rooms seemed nicer but not sure I would again. It was a great hotel but the restaurant hours are quite odd. The pool bar had barely any choices, there is no pool service. The 20 twenty which we wanted to eat at is closed Sunday nights. The Sheraton pool has a waterslide, band and food at all times so for our family that's a much better fit. No valet available either at the Westin but we could self park our car. Also, the Hotels.com description is not accurate on what you get in the room so please double check before you book. My room said sleeps 3 but only had a king bed so I had to pay extra for a rollaway as there was no pull out sofa. Really wanted room service but there isn't any.... What bothered me the most is I asked to have my sheets changed as we spilled something and it wasn't done in the 8 hours we were gone and we had to call again.

    We wish we knew the pool break restaurant weren’t open on Sunday and Monday and there was no room service. We had to go to Sheraton for food and it wasn’t a variety either. It was mainly pool food for dinner.We left early and headed to Palm Springs . We had to pay for self parking as well, no valet which was very odd.

    Understaffed

    The property is very nice and the rooms were very clean. The problem is that they are way under staffed, no pool bar or pool restaurant, no valet, no bellman , spa only open Fri - Sunday, The restaurant was only open certain times of the week as well. I understand Covid issues, the problem I had is the Sheraton is part of this property and they had more things open than the Westin which cost a lot more. I’ve stayed at many Westin’s and frankly I was disappointed. Rick
