Rated 5 out of 5 by ArtofTrail Westin Las Vegas
The room was comfortable and clean, and the staff was friendly, helpful and responsive. When there was a WiFi issue, the network support staff responded promptly. I reactivated my SPG membership.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MinnesotaCanada A lot of small problems tainted our experience
Overall, we were disappointed.
We had an accumulation of minor problems that never got resolved or aknowledged. Yet we still paid for the whole thing.
First, Wi-Fi didn't work the first 2 days of our stay. Extremely annoying when you rely on it and are charged for it. This is one of the main reasons we chose this hotel. And finding free, reliable Wi-Fi in Vegas was impossible.
Second, there was a leak from the bathroom to the bedroom. I noticed the wet carpet right away but thought housekeeping must have shampooed the carpet. The next couple days it got worse and worse. Everytime I would step out of bed, I would walk on wet carpet. We let the staff know, they sent someone to look at it and we never got any follow-up.
In the hotel brochure, it says you're supposed to get 1 free bottle of water per guest every morning. We only got one. They do have free bottles at the reception though. We knew because we asked.
We ate at the Suede restaurant one night and the staff was not friendly at all. It was after 10pm and we felt like we were disturbing them (we only ordered 1 dish each, same one, nothing crazy). The morning staff at Suede was extremely nice though.
I forgot my phone charger in the bedroom. I called Lost and Found/Security when I realized. I was basically told I was out of luck. If no one brings it back, my loss. They never tried to do more than that. This really disappointed me and I am glad I didn't forget something more important like medication or work documents.
The Spa staff was really nice and helpful as well as the concierge. They are patient and eager to work something with you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gisella03 Excellent Guest Recognition
If feels amazing when you are recognized as a SPG Platinum member. Mia was able to give us a junior suite as requested and welcome us with a warm smile and inform us of our amenities. Room was awesome with complete bathroom and room amenities. Didn't have to ask for a thing! I love when the hotel knows what you like!

Rated 1 out of 5 by LandedSPG An embarrassment to the Westin brand.
I've been to lots of Westin Hotels around the world. This is the absolute worst when it comes to everything about it. Really.
Don't stay here. First off, it's a rip off compared to the tons of options you have on the strip. Also, it's a category 5 hotel for some reason! An absolute joke if you ask me, and it's not even on the Strip, it's a good 5 minute walk away and it's below average on everything they offer. I would never use points on this hotel, Ever.
The Casino in the hotel pales in comparison to the other major hotels. You don't even feel like your in Vegas and you wouldn't even want to be there unless you had to for some reason!
As a Plat I didn't get upgraded, no breakfast or happy hour,...actually there was happy hour, a table on the second floor hallway was set up with ONLY chips and salsa you could get a beer or red wine ONLY for an expected $2 tip from an uninterested server who was angry and surly all at once! What a joke!
Don't stay here, it's really not a Westin beyond the name. The room was not renovated since they made the building into a Westin from whatever it was before and the staff although occasionally smiling, made you feel like you were at a motel instead of a SPG boasted hotel.
I was here for one night and will NEVER be back! There are too many issues with this hotel for it to ever be fixed, no matter what they try to do and say.
This should be a category 2 or 3 at best and have prices that reflect it. Unfortunately as it stands, it's your only real SPG option in Vegas if you want to be close enough to the strip but I would just bite the bullet and stay elsewhere while in Sin City.
In this case, whatever happens in the Westin Casuarina Las Vegas needs to be shared with the world, because it's nothing special and nothing but disappointment will happen here. Stay away!

We were very disappointed in this hotel for a Westin, The bed was very comfortable but the room just did not seem clean, the carpet had spot and not just a few quite a few. My biggest complaint was they vacuumed every day at 8:00 AM most people in Vegas stay out late and sleep in. We did complain after the 2nd day but still nothing was done.

We were helped at the front desk by,Mylin. She went out of her way to find a room for friends of our who needed a room for 2 nights. They are SPG members , she made it work for one night which was great. Very nice to work with. More employees need to follow her example.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jay22 Hope you love secondhand smoke!
The smoke-filled lobby in this property COMPLETELY undermines the Westin and Starwood brand. Definitely don't "Breathe Deep" here. Secondhand smoke is more than a nuisance - it is a serious health hazard to guests and all the people who work here. Westin staff should not have to get sick or die from breathing at work. Here they seem terrified to talk much about it w/o risking their jobs. Backed by SPG marketing, the lobby casino could be a huge success if it were a 100% smoke-free oasis in Vegas. Although many other states and countries now have smoke-free casinos, no one else does in Vegas. Westin would be an ideal location. I certainly would gamble $ here if it were smoke-free, and many other SPG members probably would too. It has been 5 years since Westin led the hotel industry with a landmark 100% smoke-free policy that is both good for health and good for business.
If Starwood can't get the casino operator to stop undermining their brand and staff/customer health, they should deflag this property. It's easy to take smoke-free hotels for granted these days because they are so popular. That is thanks to Westin. It's time to end this huge deviation from the brand and what it stands for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kingpickle Off the Strip, Which is Good
Nice, if unexciting LV hotel, just off the strip. Small casino, with low min table games, and quiet vibe. Short cab/walk to big casinos, but better to stay in relative piece and be close to the big boys. Only problem was that the Concierge was clueless and unhelpful.
