It sounds like the ‘W’ mattress isn’t the only thing that’s soft at the Westin St. John Resort and Villas.
The Wall Street Journal reports the director of sales and marketing saying the resort is 80% booked for the year-end holidays. Usually, it would be sold out, Bill Thompson told the newspaper.
During the summer, he noticed Westin guests were cutting back on the extras. They came to the pool with juice boxes and snacks for the kids. Adult guests were "having one drink at the bar and (then) going back to their rooms and opening up their own bottle of wine."
The Westin’s response: "Santa Savings". Room rates start at $435 a night, which Thompson says is 30% below last year.
