We booked an Ocean View Premium Room, but we did not quite have a view of the ocean due to being on the 1st floor. I was really surprised that they classified the room as ocean view, because that was a huge stretch. As Marriott Gold, you’re typically entitled to an upgrade to a better room, or at least a good room within the category you booked. Regardless, the room was a nice 635 square feet, with a large Westin Heavenly King Bed, desk with seating for 2 and a chaise lounge. The one thing I love about Westin is that it’s incredibly reliable. The toiletries, bedding and overall room comfort are always the same. The bathroom was an odd design, and quite dark, but had a double vanity and large shower. There are no stocked minibars anymore at most major chains, but you can request minibar packages for purchase. Also, in the welcome email we received, we were told to request items they have removed due to COVID, such as a coffee maker, robes and slippers. We did request these items and they were waiting for us upon our arrival.
Overall, the room was very comfortable. Given our lack of view, I would just book the standard room next time as I did not see much value in the upgrade.
