Having stayed at the W last month and now at the Westin, I should say that the W is my favorite property in Seattle. The Westin is older and a little longer in the tooth, with what seems like 3 entrances on all different sides of the building, making it unclear where to enter from. In addition, the FD last night at the Westin didn't acknowledge my status at all or present any options for my gold choice, etc. There wasn't hot water this morning, which was unfortunate. Also, the neighborhood around the W is much better. Being next to monorail tracks is not the sunny side of the street.
