Rated 2 out of 5 by AZKim Not my usual great Westin experience
We'd booked a Thursday and Friday night at the hotel, Saturday being the day we checked into our Starwood timeshare a couple miles north. After having been up for almost 24 hours, we looked forward to a shower, quick dinner, and rest. I had no reason to doubt my experience at this Westin would be any less wonderful than my other hotel and timeshare experiences. Oh my.
We were 'upgraded' to the Ocean Tower. Great view. However, the carpet had huge rolls, the kind on which you are destined to trip. The elevator noise was very loud. Husband took a shower first, but the tub did not drain. Not wanting to get into dirty water up to my calves, I asked husband to call down to maintenance. The phone did not work and he had to call on his cell phone. I went to sit on the sofa, but decided this was not a good idea since the once pale gold upholstery looked as though it had not been cleaned for a long, long time. The plumber came and after 40 minutes of listening to his drill and smelling oil, we'd had enough. We were moved, but to the same tower. Not good~ but better. We learned all other towers have been renovated. We are supposed to return in three weeks. I told husband I would rather fly home early. So disappointing~

Rated 4 out of 5 by Roberto67 Good times / Bad times
We were a party of four and stayed at the westin maui for 6 nights in June. All in all we had a great time, the facilities of the hotel were great, especially the fantastic outdoor pool area, and the staff was really friendly and helpful. We were up-graded to an ocean front view room with no extra charge. On the day we checked out, having an evening flight, we had full access to all the hotel services and were given a hospitality suite to shower up before leaving.
There are a few things altough that did not meet our expectations. Even though the lobby and and all downstairs area are elegant and nicely furnitured, we cannot say the same for our rooms. The rooms need a serious renovation ! The most disappointing thing were the bathrooms as they are very 70s like. We also had problems with the bathtubh draining...
The furnitures in the room were battered and have definitely seen better times. Having experienced different westin hotels around the world, we can say that this aspect of the westin maui was quite a disappointment. We think they really need to invest some serious money in the rooms renovation/makeover and bring them to the 21st century !
Apart from that, as said before, we had a great time.

Rated 2 out of 5 Not typical Westin
This hotel is at best 3 star hotel with 4 star prices. It is not worth the money.

Rated 3 out of 5 by wildfirekunal Noisy and commercial
This was my first trip to Hawaii - my wife and I usually stay at Starwood properties as this brand provides the best in class customer service. However we ran into a few problems at this hotel - mainly because it was packed with families and children - which made the place noisy and difficult for the staff to keep up with the high number of guest.
- First, there is no extravagant recognition for SPG Gold or Platinum guests. As I am a Platinum member, we got free breakfast, internet and access to the spa area. However the rooms were average. The first room they assigned was facing the parking lot - so we got that changed immediately. Don't expect a suite upgrade!
- This place is loud and all about spending $$, If you are going to relax, don't stay at the Westin Maui. If you have family and want comfort, Westin Maui will be a good choice.
- We opted for the "Green Choice". However if you opt for this option the hotel WILL NOT clean your room - in other words, they will not pick up thrash from your room etc unless you make a request.
I shared my concerns with the managers at the Westin Maui - Jeff and Kya. Apparently lot of gold and platinum members stay here so it is difficult for them to provide room upgrades to everyone.
