Best is a "subjective" term. I'd say the RC would win in the "luxury" category, but who knows if you would even be on the same side of the street with the ocean? I don't know anything about the Kimpton. So can't comment on it.

What I might do, given you have 2 free night certs at the RC, would be to contact the hotel to find out what their Plat upgrade options are? Are you a Plat or PP? Suite upgrades are now supposed to be possible at RCs for PPs, but who knows if the Cayman RC would give you one or not (even if available). If you really want the best chance at an ocean-front room, the Westin may give you a better chance than the RC. From some of the Tripadvisor comments, it looks like Plats now get at least some type of free breakfast at the RC now as well (though not sure if it can be upgraded to a full buffet breakfast or not.)
