My wife and I recently spent 7 nights at the Westin whilst we did all of the mandatory Cape Town sightseeing. I had spent a lot of time reading reviews of all of the preferred hotels on this site but ended up choosing the Westin because it was close to the V&A Waterfront, had the Executive Club floors, free shuttle...

During our visit at The Westin we were treated to the best of the best. The conference facilities were well equipped, ventilated with comfortable chairs for the long seated hours. The food was of high quality, well presented and met our fast differences. With exquisite interior and a unique fragrance we left left with a which to return soon

I chose this hotel for its proximity to the convention centre. I was a bit concerned regarding safety and it was reassuring to have a co located hotel . The waterfront area is close by and the hotel has a complimentary shuttle to the V and A shops. The lounge is great. Amazing breakfast with great service and views. The... More

Good large hotel close to the waterfront and attached to the convention centre. Just spent almost a week at the hotel while attending a conference and had a very comfortable stay in a room with a partial view of Table Mountain one way and the harbour the other way. The only possible downside is that there aren't a great range... More

Very centrally located in downtown cape town (you need drive/bus to go to waterfront), adjacent to exhibition centre which is very convenient. I was upgraded to a corner suite on 4th floor which was low but still With a view but room was amazing. I also stayed on 7th floor and you do hear the cars when you're in bed... More

Spent a week at this Westin for vacation. It is a great location, and the hotel has excellent customer service. We utilized the concierge service to assist with booking day trips (Table Mountain, Winery Tours, etc.) and they were very helpful. There is a free shuttle that runs every 30 minutes to take you to the V & A Waterfront,... More

Beside having one of the biggest convention centers which makes it perfect for business, it still is a very good holiday getaway. It is located on one end of Long street so it is a walking distance to the main area. They offer free shuttle service every 30 minutes to the Waterfront which is 5 minutes away. Their concierge service... More

The executive hotel is new, clean and modern. Having hearing safety issues in South Africa before our trip, we have decided to opt for the hotel limousine to pick us up from the airport and the Cape tours for next few days. During the few days in Cape Town, Mansor from the hotel drove us around and he was very... More

This was our first time in Capetown and we absolutely loved it! The hotel is close enough to V&A area to walk it and very central to everything. Very good price for what you get! (But bring your own hairdryer, the hotel one dies every 10secs)

The Westin Cape Town is approximately 20-25 minutes from the airport, although a trip during morning and evening rush hours can be longer, according to Cape Town locals. The hotel is across the street from the Convention Center and within walking distance of several other hotels. Overall the decor is modern and elegant, with touches of African craftwork throughout, including... More
