Typical Westin hotel for good decoration, good service.
What makes this Westin stand out for me is the location for my business travel. It is in the TianHe area, near the Guangzhou East train station. A nice easy walk (or shuttle) from the train station. From the GZ/Canton airport - take subway to the GZ East train staion, or nearby station; or take a shuttle bus to the Citic Plaza building.
Good shopping nearby with the mall (ft. uniqlo) and ikea nearby.
Lot's of good places for food outside - mostly various Chinese (so many western fast food in the mall). Inside are good yet semi-pricey Chinese and Italian restaurants. The Italian rest. at the top floor provides a great view.
There is a small bar on the ground floor. Has potential, but entertainment is B-C level for talent. The occasional "professional" lady is waiting at the bar. Better to come with a group, have a nice drink, smoke a cuban, and relax with the music in the background. Maybe a good jazz night during the week and DJ during the weekend would be better than their current format...
Rooms are good size and nicely decorated in western style. (Not like the over the top, pseudo European style many Chinese hotels follow). The desk has all of the electrical needs for the traveling business person - no need to call down for a converter. Comfortable chair is great for long work nights! The desk lamp is nice decoration, but not very suitable due to low height, and non-adjustable.
Comfortable bed with plenty of reading light options. Lot's of big pillows and comfortable duvet - great nights rest.
Nice gym and indoor and outdoor swimming. Although the indoor pool was under maintenance. Concierge can provide good running map or cross the street and run around the park.
Price is reasonable for the level of Westin. I plan to stay here again next visit.
