The property is very nice...

...based on my only stay a few years ago, which was less than a year after the hotel opened. I was platinum at the time, and my upgrade request at check-in granted my wife and I a very nice suite....

Westin River North update

My wife and I recently stayed at this Westin and had a superb experience. I sent a note via SPG.com indicating our good experience to the GM, Mr. Simoncelli, so I hope he received it, although you...

Bad news (if it's true)

Yes, that would be bad news indeed if Mr. Sulzman has departed. Let's hope he's still at the W or somewhere else and the Starwood network is simply down. Lord knows the web gurus could be to blame....

Edmund Sulzman, formerly of W New Orleans - contact info?

Do you know if Mr. Sulzman is still in NYC, where he relocated from NOLA? I received a message from him in January that he was moving back to NY and would be based temporarily at the W Union Square....

Returning for a one-nighter this month

My wife and I are going to be in Chi for one night of post-holiday R&R. (It really does pay to take a small break after the insane stretch of Thanksgiving through New Year's Eve. :cool: )

With...

Thank God - and Barry S. or "Justin" or whoever else makes it possible for William to spend time here.

Welcome back, Lurker. I hope you are well.

Some properties certainly don't treat platinums as well as others do, but there's nothing in Starwood T&Cs that guarantees an upgrade to a suite. I've had the good luck of it happening around 75...

The Sheraton may be a bit closer, but it's still too far to walk. I would recommend either W (the city center location has been especially good on my last two visits) or the Westin River North. It...

Apples vs. Oranges...

Updates?

Can anyone provide a recent update on the Sheraton Brookhollow vs. the Sheraton Suites Market Center? I have seen wildly conflicting reviews in archived threads with good and bad ratings for each...

Tempo rules.

I go there for breakfast whenever I'm downtown or anywhere near it - I love that place. It's also an easy enough walk from the Westin River North (maybe 8 or 9 blocks) and just a little further from...

Bump

One more try - does anyone have a specific contact at the W City Center you could recommend for a call or e-mail in advance of this stay?

It's a high-rise...about 35 stories or so as I recall.

As far as the "hot girls," the odds are probably better at a local gentleman's club. I recall the W whiskey bar being full of a sad bunch of...

To each his own - if you like the Wyndham better, then at least you've tried the W. This W is actually one of my favorite SPG properties. Yes, the walls are way too thin...I had the same experience...

Thanks for the quick and candid replies - this information is helpful. I am about 10k short of my next mileage award, so I may try to reach that level and then shop around. I just hope I can redeem...

CO feedback for a not-so-frequent flyer

I fly CO on occasion and usually have a good experience but I'm not frequently enough on a jungle jet or the occasional 737 to earn any kind of status. Also, my home airport is IND, so I don't have...

An suite upgrade here wouldn't be anything significant -- the corner rooms mentioned above are HUGE and bigger than one suite I received here (minus the wall dividing the two rooms).

I agree that...

So the Sheraton Brookhollow is that close to DAL? I may have to check it out if I can snag a flight into Love Field instead of DFW. (We're talking DAL here instead of DFW, right?) As an alternative,...

Try the Westin River North

You'll get what you pay for - try the Westin River North on Dearborn. I've had great experiences there over the last three years or so. It should be around the same if you're paying with points,...
