On Monday Ken and I went to check out the Westin Stonebriar Hotel and we looked at a standard room, the bars, restaurants lobby and the general area.

The hotel is lovely in the lobby, bar and restaurant areas. They have cowhide chairs in a nice lounge area and a large and welcoming bar. There is a definite Texas theme to the hotel with the artwork. The lobby is large and nicely decorated and it looks over the country club and a small lake.

They have a very reasonably priced menu with a good variety of food from burgers and pizzas to steaks. Not the high prices you usually see at a hotel. This is served in the main dining room and also in the bar if you prefer to eat there. The same menu is available in both venues.

The rooms are a little dated but a BARGAIN for the price you all got. Nice spacious rooms. The bathroom has a bathtub with shower combination but not a walk in shower, at least not in the standard rooms.

Right across the street is a small shopping area with restaurants and some boutique type shops, and also two spas The Stonebriar spa for massages and treatments. This is really close literally across the street and not far to walk to the Cantina Laredo that is restaurant at the end of the shopping area. Should it be raining or you do not want to walk the hotel has a shuttle that will take you to Stonebriar Mall at the top of the hour or anywhere within 3 miles of the hotel on the half hour.

There is a remarkable choice of restaurants. These are the menus of the restaurants in this shopping area, it is nice to have all these options so close.

Silver Fox a high priced top quality steak house

Isabella’s Italian

Cantina Laredo a very popular Mexican restaurant

Edoko Sushi

Kenny’s Burger Joint – loved the humor on this menu Ken and I might go try one of their burgers.

One 2 one – found the web site but the menu is not loading.

Coffee shop I “think this is the one the address is right”

Stonebriar Spa – website with their treatments.

I think this is a great place to stay particularly for the pricing you got a far more upscale hotel than ALOFT of course probably no wild party in the lobby!!
