A fire was set in the tenth floor of the Westin Hotel yesterday. The Westin, originally scheduled to open early this fall, is a 22 story tower on Washington Blvd and Sixth Street. Based on evidence at the scene, arson was immediately suspected in the two alarm fire.
The 429 room hotel is near completion; a South City Steak, a steakhouse restaurant from the owners of South City Grill in Newport, will occupy retail space in the hotel.
