The Westin Horton Plaza

This really is a lovely hotel. Nice big room, big bathroom, chaise lounge as well as an easy chair. The staff is friendly, polite, and professional.

However, apart from the chaise, which is very comfortable, seating is not a strong point here. I think the only hotel room desk chairs I've sat in that were more uncomfortable were straight wood dining type chairs in something like a Super Inn.

Also, Westins like to advertise their "heavenly bed" ... I don't know about other Westins, but the bed in my room is not heavenly. It's hard! I think my 25 year old mattress at home, that I finally replaced last month, was more comfortable than this hotel bed, and that old one was bad -- only saved from replacement earlier by a heavily padded mattress pad.

Still, the rest of the hotel is quite nice.
