Why am I staying in a Westin? Benefit desert...

Stayed in a couple of Westins this year...pre-merger I was pretty much all Marriott. I figured why not try it, since all those SPG-loyals seemed to be wild about how they were treated. As a Titanium, I was really hoping for that nice suite...and then reality set in. [added] Spent the last week at Huntsville and...

No club breakfast plus a $10 voucher, like the Ren, but choose points OR breakfast. OK, I choose breakfast...but breakfast is literally a plexiglass cabinet with some muffins unless you pay extra. No room upgrade. No free bottles of water offered. Room overlooking the parking lot. No hi-speed wifi choice (but it seemed OK). No club- no dinner snacks, drinks, etc.

Basically I'm not sure if I got any benefits at all other than the muffins and presumably my point bonus...I thought the first one maybe was an outlier (LAX) but after the second one (HSV) I have to say I'm not a fan. Bedding was nice, though, which I guess is most of the battle.

What am I missing?
