The Westin Hotel is on the edge of the central business district of Cape Town - all central sights are in walking distance. The hotel is part of the conference center complex and all is geared towards business and conference visitors - free WIFI that works, business center and ample meeting space with direct access to the conference venue.

It was my first time in South Africa and Cape Town. The stay in this hotel was just magic. Beautiful very large room, incredible bed and bed-liner. i could have stayed in the bed for hours if I did not have to see everything else as well :-) Needless to say, the room and bathroom were perfectly clean and organized...

I stayed here on business. Great hotel and right next to the convention center. Very friendly staff, very clean and cosy room. Security was very good. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting or at the conference center. Loved the chicken curry on the late night menu!!! Five stars!!!

We were here for a conference and have no complaints. The room was comfortable and everything worked. The food was fine, if not exceptional, and it was well situated and within easy reach of the main attractions. The staff were will and helpful. I would have no hesitation staying here again if there was a conference but would maybe try... More

Got an upgrade to a bigger room with massive windows and a great view of the city. Really comfortable big bed, big bathroom with heated floors. Spacious rooms, perfectly equipped for a business traveler. The pool and the cosy restaurant on top both have great views, and breakfast is very good.

Stayed for 3 nights for a meeting which was held in hotel. Room was good with good service. Good pool but a bit narrow. Food was good. Located close to waterfront with regular free shuttle bus. Internet access a bit of a problem if you have Apple products.

We were here for 5 nights on a conference trip and we stayed in a twin bed room with my colleague. We were totally disappointed with the service quality especially in the restaurant. We had breakfast there every morning, the food was ok with a wide selection, but all the waiters in the hotel restaurant need better training. They spilled... More

Everything from the check-in to check-out process was flawed, I am in disbelief that this is a Starwood hotel. Safe was spoilt, hair dryer broke down, billing was problematic, hotel got our check out dates wrong... amongst other things. Standard, fairly spacious business hotel. Good spread of breakfast, the large range of juices/smoothies made it stand out from standard hotel... More

I stayed at this hotel in January 2014 for a couple of nights and loved it. When I'm in a new country and don't know what's good, I always try to go for a chain hotel for the first few nights because you can always rely on them and won't let you down. Westin is a great chain and I... More

Near, but not that near, to the Waterfront this is a classy business hotel. Perhaps the best feature s the simply stunning fitness centre with ceiling to floor windows giving you views over the bay, and equipped with the very latest equipment. Likewise the small lap pool. The rooms are bigger than average - sadly my 4th F deluxe room... More
