Built by prominent Mexican artist Javier Sordo Madaleno, the colorful design and architecture reflecting the famous Arco (arch) makes this Westin more memorable than some of the others in the Corridor. The rooms, some set high above the beach, are among the best in their price range and have ocean views and Westin's trademark Heavenly Beds with cushy pillows and comforters. Junior suites have balcony Jacuzzis, marble floors, extra pullout beds, and connecting rooms for families or larger parties. For the best view, request a "Royal" room over the top of the arch, which includes a private beach club, cocktails, and breakfast. The dramatic setting of the hotel means you'll get plenty of exercise moving from one area to another, which is good for some and less appealing for others. The restaurants receive mixed reviews, with most leaning toward the expensive but mediocre in terms of satisfaction.

I have stayed numerous places and the Westin is tops. Yes it is in the middle of the two cities but that's the point. I have always had excellent service, loved the buffet here, and enjoying watching the whales migrating. I pay more but I have always gotten what I have paid for.
