What are the rooms like? What is in the rooms? Others have mentioned some people might have to stay in town at the Westin. How do you know where you are staying?
It's Alaska, not the Holiday Inn, but we stayed in a great elevated cabin which had a living room w/tv, (not much time to look at it!) and 2 bedrooms, one had a king size bed for me and my hubby, the other had 2 singles for the 2 other guys with whom we fished. They serve appetizers in your cabin before dinner-awesome touch! You can get a "booze stop" and pick up a bottle of wine or some beer or spirits after fishing before going back to the cabin. Nice pain killer for those aching arms as you look at the fabulous scenery and view your photos of the day!
There are several buildings 4 or 5 which house about 60 -70 fishers. The building we stayed in had three stories. When you entered the long hallway you had 4 different rooms. Each room had a full size bed and a twin. Each room had its own bathroom. In the hallway you could use the washer and dryer. Then you have a big living room and a full size kitchen with a community refrigerator for your own cocktails after fishing all day. The room itself is not fancy but it is super clean and comfortable. Most clients turn in early because 10 hours on the ocean is tiring. It is fun to chat with others on your floor. Great way to meet with others as you enjoy delicious appetizers delivered to your living area each day. If you have to stay in town the first night, they will come get you early for your fishing trip. We get that warning each time we book but we have never had to be bumped from the lodgemail. We did meet a father and son who had to be bumped but they did not seem to think it was a bad thing. The Westin is nice. It was only for the first night and I really think that is on rare occasions.
