Rated 5 out of 5 by Martij My home away from home!
I always stay here when I come to Vegas now! The Westin is located right off the strip and I find it so much more relaxing than on-strip hotels. The hotel is quiet and you don't have to walk a mile to get outside or to your car in the parking garage. Also, can't beat the complimentary daily happy hour!
On this most recent trip, Matt at the front desk was fantastic. My friend remarked that it was the most pleasant and friendly check in she had ever experienced at a hotel. Jason helped us at the bar and made us great bloody marys. Sanchez was our server at Suede for breakfast and was attentive, as always!

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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MPLSBPC My best experience yet ...
I have stayed at the Westin before out of convenience but my last stay was fantastic. It seemed the rooms and hallways have been updated and the people were just all around excellent. Everyone seemed to be in great spirits and willing to jhelp make my stay just exceptional. While before I would have hesitated to recommend the Westin, I would not definitely give two thumbs up!

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 Bizzguy55 Great hosts, very good breakfast buffet
This is a very good value. Front desk in particular is welcoming and helpful. While the building is an older one, it is still comfortable, and consistently good experiences with staff. I have stayed here many times in the past two years.

Rated 2 out of 5 by etmj Not up to Westin standards.
This hotel has old and outdated rooms. For the price we paid for our room I could have added $20 and stayed in a suite on the strip at a top rated hotel.
When in Vegas I expect a beautiful flashy room that I like to come back to after a long day out. The Westin rooms are like the ones I would stay in when I was 21 just to shower get an hour or two of sleep and head back out. They also had the nerve to add a resort fee on to my bill for the free beer and wine they serve in the evenings. Everyone in vegas gives free drinks just sit down at a table or machine. All and all not up to Westin standards.

Rated 2 out of 5 by PeteS Shouldn't Be Branded Westin
I have stayed in many Westin hotels worldwide. This is the worst one. It is not a bad hotel as hotels go. It is just not up to the Westin standards. The staff is not as friendly. The rooms are small. The decor is worn. It was another brand before it became a Westin. I try not to stay here unless I absolutely need a stay credit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Bill1re Overall A Nice Stay, But ....
Having read the prior reviews, I was concerned with the overall cleanliness of the hotel and the outdated rooms. So, before I booked the week of December 3rd, I called the Platinum concierge not once but twice to ensure that I would at least be upgraded to a room a new new TV, not the 1970s TVs that I read about. Well, after assurances from both the Platinum Concierge and the hotel itself that the hotel was not fully booked that week and I was sure to be upgraded to a new suite, I went ahead and booked the room. Well, sure enough I get there and "oh sorry" the Rodeo is in town are we just found out 5 minutes ago that we have VIPs coming to the hotel. LOL, BS .... Otherwise the staff was nice and hotel was comfortable, but the 70s TV for a loyal Platinum member really sucked!!
