We stayed for two nights using our SPG points and could not be happier. Room: Nice size, modern furnishing, spacious, large bathroom, comfy bed, good views of the city, everything I expect from the Westin Buffet Breakfast: Excellent variety and quality: freshly squeezed innovative juices, hot food (Western and Asian!), fruit, cold stuff, pastries etc. Spoilt for choice Gym/Pool: Probably...

What a lovely surprise to stay a short business week in a hotel and not get tired of it. The rooms were very nice, quite and had a great bed and shower. The best part was the 19th floor restaurant with a superb included breakfast and the best complimentary happy hour I have ever seen! The view of Table Top... More

Westin Hotel's place is pretty good for the ones who want to travel across Long Street. Hotel employees is very kind and helpful. However, if you want to discover Long Street, do not walk alone because crime rates are pretty high. Bou Westin Hotel is pretty safe and decent.

I am a regular visitor at this hotel and as per my previous email this hotel feels like my second home, I am however very disappointed with them because for the last number of visits I had to hear they won't have hot water after 23:00 due to maintenance. This maintenance is now taking too long and I think things... More

The hotel is very well located to be able to visit around and have a good night sleep also. Food was good and we enjoyed the Executive Club which has a spectacular view on Cape Town with its glass windows from the ceiling to the floor. There is also the option to have a free apero at the Executive lounge... More

This property is really handsome inside and out. It's attached to the convention center. There's a free shuttle to the Waterfront area every 30 minutes. The rooms are large, clean, well maintained, quiet, and comfortable. Our room had a nice view of the waterfront. My SPG Gold room was rewarded with an executive room and access, which included a lavish... More

Spent a night at the terrible protea president at Bantry bay and the next day had to book a stay at the Westin. Arranged for the Westin limo to pick me up from PP and immediately I could feel the difference. The Westin staff was polite and welcoming Reached the hotel and was impressed with the modernity of the place... More

I stayed at the hotel during a conference. The rooms were nice and comfortable with a big bathroom including shower and bathtub. I especially liked the breakfast there at the 19th floor, it was excellent, high quality of food. You could order nearly whatever you want (Continental, Asian, etc.), fresh fruits, and smoothies. All of it on top of the... More

Stayed for one night. The hotel got two restaurants and both serve terrific food. A few rooms have got view of the signal mountain while on the different side a few has the table mountain view. Waterfront V&A is only a mile away.
