    Listen to your employees. Give them the resources they need to succeed. Franchise operations need better director from the company if they expect to have similar standard expectations.

    The Westin is a fitness conscious company that promotes employee well being both mentally and physically. I will not judge the company itself on the quality of my managers, but overall the environment is a very welcoming and family type.

    Not a whole lot of promoting from within in this location.

    Very nasty didn’t wash the linen on the beds
    Never washed the glasses the would rinse them out in the sink and clean it with a rag.
    Staff was very rude
    Employees would spray bleach on the blankets to clean them.
    Only served Egyptian food or Mexican food
    Employees would steal out of rooms and lockers

    Advice to Management

    Need a cleaner hotel
    Not just from the outside but the inside as well
