We stayed at the Westin for four nights mid-week in November. We really enjoyed our stay and would definetely recommend this hotel to family and friends... if they had the money!
The location is perfect, we walked to breakfast down a little alleyway every morning in less than five minutes. When we were travelling to St Kilda or Queen Victoria Markets we took the tram which stops just down the road from The Westin. We walked to all the restaurants and shops that we needed to without any difficulty.
The door staff were great. Very friendly and were up for a chat anytime. Got a lot of good advice from both the concierge and door staff. And they were lovely whenever we asked for advice or requested anything. For example, when we asked for advice on which Yarra Valley wine tour we should go on, they went out of their way to ensure we got what we were after. Our only issue with our stay was that we weren't told that the hotel would debit just under $500 from our account for the duration of our stay, even though we'd already paid in full, which really messed up our spending budget (we treated ourselves to this hotel - we didn't have a large amount to spend). We would just be much more appreciative if this was made clear (verbally) before or on our arrival, so that we could be prepared financially.
The hotel and room itself was just as we imagined - luxurious, modern, well furnished and very well maintained. Great shower head!!! The cocktail bar was the same although quite expensive ($20 a cocktail) We were in room 613 which had a nice view up and down the street.
Overall, it was a great stay and a perfect place to treat ourselves for an anniversary.
PS. Other reviews are right about the bed... AMAZING!!! - they really are heaven. Like sleeping on a cloud! And I have struggled with back problems for years... I have not slept that well in a looong time!!!
