stayed there for 3 days in a group. we reached there late in the evening but our check-in was short and swift. the rooms were just adequate. I got a room facing the the harbour and the hills too. the breakfast menu was good. A special mention about the steward who made me fruit juice mix. overall satisfying

Two nights here for work. Largish comfortable room on the executive floor. Beautiful view over the waterfront and harbor. (Table Mountain and city view on the other side.) Lovely modern gym with view over waterfront as well. Friendly helpful staff, splendiferous buffet breakfast. The only caveat is that this is not an area you would want to walk around in... More

I'm a fan of Westin. My wife and I are Starwood members, and stay in Westin wherever possible around the world. You can usually count on excellent service and first-class rooms, and Cape Town is no exception. The location is perfect, with shuttle service to the waterfront and easy access to Table Mountain. Highly recommended.

An excellent and elegant hotel, very courteous staff, well versed in English. Rooms are quite large and the view of the sea from my room was fabulous. The morning breakfast buffet was sumptuous. We had our company conference here and the banquet facilities were equally good.

The glass seems to "pop" when it gets windy for a sustained time. happened a few times in my 4 night stay. The people at front... More

In case you are attending a conference at the CTICC, this is the best place to stay at. What I liked about this place was 1. Amazing location 2. Nice restaurants at a walking distance 3.... More

Hotel runs a free minibus to a from the harbour and is very aware of your safety on your behalf. We walked though, and didn't feel scared. Stayed a... More

There are sincerely friendly greetings from the moment you arrive. Check-In was smooth, quick, professional and genuinely helpful. The rooms are not very large, but they are modern, efficient, well conceived and comfortable. The view from the room is memorable. There's an extra level of security between the elevators and the rooms, which is comforting without being intrusive. The executive... More

This is a Westin that delivers the usual 5 star standard. Our room was harbour and Table Mountain facing and it was really great view. We stayed at the Executive Club and the breakfast consists of many exotic concoction of dried and fresh fruits, cheese and ham. Service was prompt and impeccable. The only little thing I wish they could... More
