The Hilton or the Westin?

We have decided to go to Malta next summer and decided on St Julian's as our base but we can't decide on whether to stay in the Westin, in a Tower Room or the Hilton in a Club Exexutive room. Can any help please? Thanks.

Hilton every day of the week.

I have not stayed at the hilton malta but have experienced the executive rooms and lounges in quite a few hilton hotels and having stayed in the Westin malta and not being impressed at all really I would say the hilton.

We have eaten and had numerous days and nights in the hilton malta without actually staying there and I must say it is impressive.

The whole Westin hotel is looking a bit tired in my opinion.

The Hilton every time for me, better positioned, better food and a more relaxed atmosphere.

Both are good.......the Westin has a more open feel with better views.

My preference is the Westin because I like the setting on its own peninsula which allows good views from all rooms, especially tower rooms. I regularly stay at the Westin and always enjoy my stay. The executive rooms at the Westin are my favourite, especially the junior suites.

I have stayed both on business and on holiday at both hotels.

Without any doubt at all the Hilton is the better overall hotel.

The Hilton is truly a 5 star hotel. I would suggest that the Westin would struggle to be more than a 4 star hotel in the UK.

If you stay at the Westin and then go and have a look at the Hilton you would kick yourself. If you stayed at the Hilton and then visited the westin you would say "thank goodness we made the right choice".
