“Under Renovation”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2011

Hotel is under heavy renovation from all ends. Service was great and the food was good. The buffet was about 150 SAR. The internet was on a daily coupon deal that you had to get from a person in the business center. Taxi cost from JED airport to hotel was about 80-100 SAR (exchange money at the airport). Red Sea Mall is about two miles to the north of the hotel (very nice mall). Overall I had a good Stay!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2011

Stayed here as a Plat guest. Don't think they see many as they seemed puzzled what to do upon check-in. I was given an "upgraded" room on an SPG floor - don't think that means anything. It was nice. Usual Westin. The big issue was the hotel Internet was out for 12 hours overnight! Bad bad for a business hotel. Not sure there is much worse. They kept saying they were fixing it, but didn't happen...as for location, great views of the Sea, but there is nothing here. No beach. No restaurants. No stores. Just rocks, beach and construction...they do have a nice business lounge with some pastries and donuts. But no alcohol! Of course.

Big refurbishing works in progress (not mentioned on Starwood site: very bad) that enhance the status of poor maintenance of the building. But the worst was the room: moquette so badly spotted, battered furniture, glass panes very poorly kept. A very expensive (in relation to the quality) sadness and disappointment. Stay away at least for a couple of years, until the refurbishing will be completed.

My second visit in 6 months and I quite enjoyed the 'lobby' on the 12th floor - attentive service from a friendly staff with great cafe options and view of the sea.
My non-smoking room had a great view of the sea and the corniche but suffered from noise and crane movements from the construction next door - initially I felt the crane would swing thru my window!
Great location for seashore walks in the morning/evening - don't miss the whitehouse replica half a kilometre South of the hotel - its somebody's residence (they call it palace!)
WiFi is pricey here at SAR100 for 24 hours!

Spent couple of days of last January, on a business trip. The only reason I stayed here is overbooking in nearby Jeddah Sheraton
Comparing its prices to location on the Sea Front, gives it a extra mark . Close to one of the newest malls in this part of Jeddah, Red Sea Mall .
Rooms are OK yet Lobby is dead ..
in simple English ..
Excellent Location+ Untrained Staff + Good Restaurants YET .. Value is Higher than competitors .

the hotel is located across from the red sea. The front desk Ethiopian man and a local young man very helpful and polite..........welcoming. The brunch is so-so, the food service is bad. They pick and choose who to serve. The oj juice dispencer was not woking.They did not have back food for brunch. The drive way needs improvment. About 15 minutes out of city center. The rooms are very nice, view is fantastic.

Having stayed there four nights during a business trip and concluding my visit with two further nights at the Hilton, just down the street, I wish I had stayed at the Hilton throughout. If you want 5-star service and accomodation and pay for it, the Westin is not your choice.
