The Westin in Vegas is formerly the Maxim hotel. It was never built as a Westin property. The reason they are so tight on suites is that there are only 6 at the property. They don't let you book them...

The AAA rate qualifies for the "Drinks on us promo". In my opinion, one of the best promos ever created (except for double stay promo).

The front desk person will give you a number of printed...
