My sister and I decided to stay one night at the Westin the night before my special day due to the five star rating the hotel had to offer and that it was closely located to where we needed to be at in the morning.
Service was wonderful on the front end; twice being asked if I needed help with my bags. The man that served me at the reception was very friendly and made check-in a breeze. Upon entering our room, we were shocked at how spacious the room was, considering we had only booked a tower room. I was happy to see that they had provided the two king beds as requested in my booking. Everything was like it was pictured on the website. We had a massive mirrored wardrobe which wasn't required as we were only staying the night. The bathroom was opposite the warddrobe with the toilet and shower areas, each, as a separate room. A transparent glass pane separated the massive bathroom and the beds, allowing occupants to look into the bathroom and it's contents when the blinds were not drawn.
We decided to check out the pools and the facilities that it had to offer. It took forever to get to the pool room - endless steps and lifts. By the time we got there, it was disappointing to see that the pool was so small and did not match the luxurious setting that the hotel boasts.
We got given a room pretty high up and I was sure we'd have a really good sleep (we needed to!). I was wrong. All throughout the night, we could hear doors slamming (from people coming back in the middle of the night); at one point we even heard the flushing of the toilet. We barely heard the traffic below and so was dismayed at the level of the sounds that could be heard from within the hotel. The beds were slightly uncomfortable and my sister reported that her pillows smelt like food and was therefore reluctant to use them. As a result, we didnt get much sleep. Thankfully I had a discount voucher for this hotel, as it would not be worth the full priced room. In saying that, the price I paid in the end was not even worth the level of stay I had that night. I will not consider this a place to stay should I need to stay in the city for a function in the future.
