Rated 5 out of 5 by TeresaM In a word: Outstanding!
I had no idea this gem was practically in our back yard. We spent 3 evenings because of some remodeling in our Ft. Myers home.
The suites are luxurious and huge, the staff is well-trained, friendly, and go out of their way for EVERY single request. The management here has done the most important thing possible in customer service--they've given their staff the training, power and encouragement to say YES.
Westin's signature scent of White Tea, wafts lightly throughout the resort, and it is so appealing and relaxing, Starbucks coffee is served in the restaurants and there is a coffee pot in the room with Starbucks coffee to brew your own. Free newspaper each day. Great happy hour 4-7 with great prices on drinks and flatbread pizza (yum).
Yes, their is a "resort fee" of $15 daily, but my, it is a deal. Includes internet, a water taxi to Fort Myers Beach (if on your own, would pay that per person minimum), plenty of self parking, etc.
Also, I like that they offer you a "green option," of choosing NOT to have housekeeping. If you make this choice you get either 500 Starwood points or $5 each day to use in bar or restaurant. Be clear though, as the kind front desk employee told me, this does not mean that you have chosen to forgo amenities. All you have to do is ask for additional toiletries, coffee, towels as you need them.
Clearly, the location is somewhat isolated, but to me, that's the beauty. As long as one has a car, it is an easy drive to Sanibel, Captiva, Ft. Myers, Naples, or Bonita Springs.
I highly recommend this resort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Julie14 One of the Best Hotels we've ever stayed in
I used to live in Ft. Myers, not too far from Cape Coral. The Westin was not there when I left the area 10 1/2 yrs ago. It was a pleasant surprise to find! My husband and I have 2 teenagers that brought friends with them. Everyone had a great time. Beautiful Hotel with beautiful 2 and 3 bedroom suites. The suites were very spacious and provided very nice appliances, all the cookware we needed to cook breakfast and dinner. It had a washer & dryer which came in very handy especially with teenagers. I enjoyed the fitness facility and pool area. It was very nice sitting at the bar overseeing the water with a full moon. I couldn't have asked for a better place to spend Memorial day weekend. Everyone on the staff were very nice and helpful. As we were leaving, the teenagers asked when we will be back? That was a first. Usually, we have to worry about keeping them entertained. They even enjoyed sitting on the back balcony of our suite listening to the pool area music and overseeing the water and all the boats. We all haven't enjoyed our vacations that much in a very long time. It also made me miss the area. We will be back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by L504444 Great getaway
We drove here for a low-hassle getaway, and had a really great experience. Our stay was off-season and an amazing price for a regular room. Making it even better: before we even arrived, the hotel upgraded us to a one-bedroom suite (with full kitchen) and with breakfast daily as the platinum amenity, it was a really great value. When we checked in, Taylor at the front desk could not have been more accomodating.
The suite was really nicely decorated, immaculate, huge, and had a view of a nature preserve and the water and a large screened in balcony.
Guests should know the surrounding area is residential, so either plan to drive so you can explore farther afield on your own (as we did) or plan to entertain yourself with the resort facilities. The pool is very nice, and there is a water taxi to Fort Myers beach (which we did not get to try), and a new kids activity room (which we did try). The hotel also has bicycles for free rental, and there are trails through the nearby nature preserve.
For breakfast, Marker 92 was lovely - the outdoor patio overlooking the water is still pleasant before the heat of the day and Amelia, who was our server each day, could not have been more friendly and helpful. Just a pleasant, perfect start to the day. The prices, though, are high and after dinner there the first night we decided to try other local spots.
