We get our best suggestions from guests. If you find that the Westminster needs something that we don't provide, please let us know. We will probably agree and provide it.
The Westminster has window-unit air conditioning. We pull the air conditioner out of the window by the middle of November to clean it and store it for the winter. We reinstall the air conditioner in April. If you feel like you need an air conditioner outside of this schedule, please discuss with us. We will do our best to accommodate.
The Westminster has full internet access with WIFI, complimentary SlingTV through a Roku Box, and an antenna for local stations on the flat screen television.
The apartment is all yours! There is a shared coin-operated laundry room in the basement and shared hallways with other guests and residents.

Should you need our assistance, we are available 24-7. We keep regular office hours from 9 AM to 5 PM Monday through Friday. After hours and on weekends, call the main office for our emergency contact number. You may also contact us through Airbnb messaging.
Parking is first-come, first-served with a permit that you'll receive upon arrival. Please note that demand is greater than supply. If permit parking is already full, you may park at any nearby metered space at no charge between the hours of 7 PM and 8 AM Monday through Saturday, and all day on Sunday.
We accept dogs at the Westminster ($25 per dog per stay). Please let us know if you'll have your four-legged family with you. When you make your reservation, we will send you an alteration to add the dog charge. Sorry, while we all love them, we do not allow cats at our rentals.
You may hear noise from the neighboring apartments, as the historic charm of the building does not include sound proof walls. If you are a late or light sleeper, we have earplugs in the apartment. We've had some guests complain about odors in the hallway, from residents who cook, smoke marijuana and/or cigarettes. We no longer rent to smokers, and want the building to be smoke-free! We have had this policy for eight years. However, when we instituted the policy, we did not force our residents who smoke to move. (Many residents who have lived in the building for decades.)
In the winter months, the heat is controlled by a central boiler that runs steam through the radiators. The boiler is scheduled to run 3-6 times a day depending on the weather forecast. There is also a wall hung heater if you get too chilly between runs.
“How far is it to the Fox?” The Westminster is about 0.6 miles from the Fox. You should be able to walk there in 10-15 minutes. We’ve had lots of actors from the Fox stay with us!
"How far is it to the America's Convention Center?" This apartment is about 3 miles from the Center. It should be drivable in about 15 minutes, or you may take public transit.
“Is it safe?” Our co-host Anne lived in the building for almost three years and never had any problems. Owner Karen has lived just three blocks away for more than 30 years and absolutely loves her neighborhood! Anywhere you stay, whether in the city or county, you should be aware of your surroundings. Anywhere you park, you should never leave any valuable clearly visible.
Dogs are welcome with an extra $25 charge per pup. While we all love them, we do not allow cats at The Westminster.
