not what we expectedfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Starting with Miami beach and then to Key Largo(@ the Westin) and then onto Key West. The moment you drive up to the entrance of the Westin you are relieved since our drive through Key Largo seemed depressed.
You are still relieved when you drive up to the drop off. We were greeted by a nice fellow who was very helpful. He took our bags and brought us up to our room. Ok! Ok! so far it sounds good but when we got to our room our supposed "bay view" on the 3rd floor - it was obstructed by a structural wall. hmmm 1/2 bay view? well we called down to the desk to see if we could get another room yet she explained that the hotel was completely booked. Funny - we didn't see but a few people around far. The room had a weird smell to it too - kind of musty. The bed was comfy though. The bathroom area was ok. Outside the hotel rooms - it needs help! - it's dark and uninviting. I kept on saying - Darth Vator Hotel. We decided to head to the bar for a drink - maybe people will be there?!? We had a drink and there were two other couples at the bar - a twosome band was playing. Every time people would look like they were going to come in the wouldn't! We were joking to our selves - come on! come in! we need some more life in here! it's like a cemetary here!! We also asked the bartender if the hotel was full - she said yes. Oh well. Anyway, I don't like to be negative we tried to make the best of our vacation - but for the money @ $239 + restort fees - the place needs a make over! Fast. The whole place is just - off. The beach is small w/ plastic lounge chairs - nothing special. The tiki bar is not very inviting either. When we checked out I mentioned to the desk gal that the hotel could use a face lift and she said the hotel is going back to another name hotel next year (I thought to myself when I looked at the brochures in the lobby last night of other Westins in the world this one does not come close). She said they have a budget of $2million for renovations next year. It needs it. For now I would say skip The Westin and Key Largo all together.
Nice couple of daysfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The Water Sports Staff - Diana and Stephanie - helped prepare us for a Hobie Cat sailing trip and a Para-sailing adventure! The nature walk was also a nice feature. While in the area, we would strongly recommend eating dinner at Bentley's a few miles south on Route 1. We did not have reservations at the Westin; we took advantage of discounts advertised in local travel brochures.

Westin Woesfrom A TripAdvisor Member
However, let me get back to the rooms. The walls are PAPER THIN. We could hear the couple next door partying (among other things) until 5 am. This started around 2 am. We called to the front desk to complain (believe me, I have never done this before) which prompted the hotel desk to have security tell the couple next door that WE had called to complain. This then prompted the couple to start banging on the wall letting us know they wanted to kill us, literally. NICE.
We left at 6 am after the couple next door passed out because we couldn't take it anymore. My fiance was scared. I had booked the room with Starwood points and when I told the front desk why I was leaving, they stated there was nothing they could do. In my eyes, the front desk and management had done enough to scare my fiance and I out of there.
I wrote to Starwood (Westin) to let them know what had happened. In Starwood's defense, they did give me back my points. The question still remains though: If you do have an issue with a guest (or other issue), is it worth it to stay at this hotel to put yourself and family in danger?

Lovely Accommodationsfrom MGanoush
Super hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The rooms are very nice and most seem to have a balcony, though some rooms on the lower floors don't get a view due to the large number of trees on the property. The restuarants on the property are very good.
Going back next year.from CC_Mansfield
