This was the view from our hotel room on the 17th floor of the Westin. There are about a million floors in this circular hotel, including those that featured water views, but I think our view was pretty fabulous anyway. We were told by quite a few people not to stay at The Westin, but Chris and I actually got an amazing “name your price” deal on priceline.com so we threw caution to the wind.
In the end the beds were super comfortable, the rooms were very clean, and the location was perfect for all of our toursity whims. Our only complaint was that there wasn’t free in-room wireless access and the wired connection in our room didn’t work at all. Thankfully Chris’s co-worker let us use his laptop cell phone card (Chris says it’s called an EVDO card) so we weren’t completely internet deprived. In addition, there was free wireless access in the lobby of the Westin. So in the afternoons we usually went downstairs, had a few drinks, and caught up on emails and our respective Google Reader addictions.
