I'm trying to identify this 4* hotel on Hotwire. It says $63 for April 18-20. 95% recommended. The complete list of amenities are:

Smoke Free Rooms
Pool(s)
Restaurant(s)
Business Center

High-Speed Internet Access
Accessible for the blind
Accessible for the deaf
Accessible path of travel
In-room accessibility
Accessible bathroom
Handicapped parking

According to other posts listing their amenities, this list is consistent with both the Sheraton and the Westin. I want the Westin, but not the Sheraton. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.

EDIT: I don't know if it's reliable sleuthing, but when I "fake" price out a Hotwire package of both hotel and car (no intention of booking a car), it does not offer the Westin Galleria as an option because it says no rooms are available for my dates. Is that reliable info that I'll get the Sheraton and not the Westin?

A property with this exact amenity set has not yet been reported to the board, and i'm not able to gain any insight on this one as to which 4* property this may be, but i think the possibilities are more than just the two you mentioned above.

HOWEVER, if you change your search to 4adults a different 4* hotel appears in this zone for almost the same price (~$5/nite more on my search):
Smoke Free
Fitness
Pool
Restaurant
Business
Hi-Speed Internet
Blind Accessible
Deaf Accessible
Travel Accessible
Room Accessible
Bathroom Accessible
Handicapped Parking

This amenity set is believed to be associated with the Westin Park Central so that would be my beset guess for this one, although still no guarantees (and it's not clear of you're looking for the Westin Galleria or the Westin Park Central, as both are in this zone)

We've booked the Westin Galleria often via Hotwire and the customer rating has always been 100%. And I just realized that they have changed the Galleria zone to include Park Central...ugh. So with that, my guess would be the Westin Park Central. I believe the Sheraton to have an 80% customer rating.

It would be greatly appreciated if you would share your Westin wins with the board - thanks. Additionally, given that the % ratings can change at any time (and have been seen to change from search-to-search on occasion), I would not use them as reliable indicators of a hotel.

Point taken on the percentile ratings, but when all the amenity sets are similar, I look for any discernable difference from one hotel to the next. Given that Jedwards1086 just booked the Park Central (which carried a 95% rating), I think it's fair to say there's some merit to the percentages...at least in this particular hotel zone.

FWIW, it seems like my original mystery has been solved. Another poster booked what seems to be the same four-star offer, based on the same exact same amenities list and exact same (95%) feedback percentage.

It's the Westin Park Central based upon this Hotwire Hotel purchase.

Since this is the hotel you were hoping for, did you purchase this for your dates above?

Actually, I was hoping for the Westin Galleria, not the Westin Park Central.
