In 2013, my family and I stayed at this hotel, it was the Grand Kempenski and we had a negative experience. As of July 2014, it is now the Westin. Being a fan of the Westin, we decided to stay there again and stayed in one of the one bedroom suites which are spacious and nice. This time, we had... More

Very nice rooms, top quality service, quick check-in and check out. Everything you'd expect from a five star hotel. Food was great, bed was very comfortable, room was large. Nice valet parking, close to the mall to eat out. A good option for business. I can't comment on value as I didn't pay. Breakfast was top notch.

Love staying at this hotel. Staff is very accommodating. We arrived at 10 a.m. on a Friday and were given a room even though check in is at 2 p.m. The day we left, they let us stay in the room until 1pm. We will definitely miss Kempinski and the great service afforded to us.

A brief stay for a business trip. Check-in was smooth and professional, notwithstanding the late hour. Room design and layout is one of the best I have experienced in the region, with the room curving good, with a spacious sleeping area and a self-contained bathroom and separate toilet. I had booked a lounge access room and this provided a great... More
