Take a trolley instead which goes every 30-40 minutes until 10PM and cost $1 per head. It stop right by the hotel. If you eat late, cab is the only option back -- $10.

Service quality is a perception. Review for each and every hotel vary from abysmal to oustanding. When I got my corner suite (used SNAs) which is very nice, I had 3 technical issues: TV wasn't turning on, fridge not working, safe stopped working. I had to call Service Express 3 times (1 for each issue). Within 5 minutes technician would come and things were rectified. Fridge, for instance, was just replaced entirely. Service Express operator would call each time and leave an apologetic message asking how the issues was dealt with.
Overall, this is a very nice hotel.
Thanks, good to know on all counts.
I'm leaning Westin FLL Beach on location in case I need to do some Christmas shopping but we'll see. Will advise post trip
