The deluxe room is positively luxurious. Westin makes a big deal about its bed and bedding, so much so, that you can purchase the stuff on the web if you feel that your bed just doesn’t measure up anymore after a night here. It’s the down feathers, I suppose, that make a difference. Chuck also favored the bath robes, and for $75.00, you can own one. We were always on upper floors, so the view from the oversize window (they actually open in this hotel) is nothing short of grand. Both times, we had panoramic views of downtown, but I do know that some rooms face the Charles River too. King size bed naturally, night tables, reading lights, desk, chairs with T1 or greater lines for internet. Love Seat or couch by one of the windows if you have a corner room; huge dresser which also holds TV, VCR (which you can rent) and what not. Some rooms have coffee makers. All amenities including iron, hair dryer, mini-bar, safe.
They have 24 hour room service, and we can vouch for that. One early morning (3 am to be precise), we were both wide awake and decided we were in the mood for mango sorbet. Yes, you guessed it: it was delivered promptly to the room and we loved every spoonful.
You can also enjoy the fitness center, and pool/sauna. There are 4 restaurants here, including a charming clam bar which doubles as a waiting area for the Fisheries Restaurant. If you feel like spending your money, you can visit Copley Place which is connected to the Westin by skybridge. The skybridge is also a great spot to take photos.
If you''re walking outside, the Mariott Copley Plaza is right next door. We stayed there as well.
On the second level of the Westin, are several shops and/or kiosks which sell incredibly beautiful and unusual merchandise, i.e. jewelry. We never took time to explore that floor fully, but walked across many times, as we would come in from one of the side entrances and take the escalator up. Even if you're not buying, it's eye candy.
As far as recommendations go, what more can you add to a hotel that's had the AAA Diamond Award for 14 consecutive years?
