“Excellent hotel in an excellent location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

My wife and I stayed at the Westin Guangzhou for two nights and had an excellent stay. Our room was quite comfortable, and the bed was very soft (a rarity in China). Service in the hotel (reception, business center, etc) was to usual excellent Westin standards, and the restaurants and room service were very good.

The Westin's location is fantastic; a fifteen minute walk from the Guangzhou sports complex, twenty-five minutes walking from incredible dimsum, and about forty minutes walking from the Guangzhou TV tower.

I would highly recommend the Westin Guangzhou.

The room was a treat--very modern design, with a great view of the city lights. Service was attentive, friendly, but never pushy.

Across the street were dozens of interesting restaurants and a huge artificial waterfall. Best was the hotel's pool--serene, on the 7th floor--great detail paid to temperature of jacuzzis and pools. Terrific.

Only hitches were the the breakfast buffet on the western food side--the (temperature) lukewarm at best. And the aggressive attempt, as we left for the airport, to put us into the hotel cab (more than $100 to the airport) when we had said we wanted a city taxi and were in the regular taxi line. Stood our ground and paid 20$ to the airport instead.

But full marks for creating a very soothing atmosphere. And the cab/hotel/airport routine is everywhere, so no hard feelings.

Room Tip: Maybe with a view of the back--the stadiums and gardens fun to look at. And the higher the more fun...

This is simply the most gorgeous Westin I have ever had the pleasure of staying in, the rooms are modern and spacious with all the amenities, a nice change after staying in small cramped rooms in Hong Kong. The staff can all speak good english and the service is excellent.
There was free wifi in my room which was great after paying some crazy rates in other hotels.
Most of the rooms had great views of the city or park and the hotel is in easy walking distance of many great restaurants and local attractions.
Great Club lounge and very nice restaurants on site, I personally love going to the Italian restaurant for it's glorious views of the city.
If the opportunity presents itself, this hotel has the best spa in the city, but you need time to relax and enjoy the ambience and service.
Overall this is a top notch hotel.

Top class property. English widely spoken and fantastic Club Lounge. You are a littlle distance from the river but close to 2 shopping areas. Great outdoor pool and gym.

Enjoy the the flavors of the East while staying with all the familiarity of the West.

Room Tip: Near the railway station for easy access to Hong Kong.

Good: The room was luxurious, clean and large. It had a nice view of the park. The staff can speak good English. Linhexi metro station is 5 mins' walk away.

Bad:
My room rate came with free wifi. I had to login to the system but still had to select a paid option. I had to call to ask about it. The receptionist should have informed me about it when I checked in.
I could hear the other room doors slamming close so I did not sleep well. Door dampers should be installed.
The breakfast was good but the variety of food was limited.
Housekeeping needs to be improved. On the first day, they forgot to replace a bottle of moisturizer and removed my keycard which I left in the room so that my laptop battery could be recharged. On the 2nd day, the shower gel and shampoo were placed on the small ledge in the shower compartment instead of in the box by the wash basin so I could not find them initially.
Staff need to be aware of the equipment and facilities. I was told that the machine in the lobby was able to exchange Malaysian Ringgit for Renminbi but it doesn't.

Stayed here a few nights for business. Had executive room which was massive - a delight after spending time in Hong Kong hotel rooms. One problem though - although the room was massive, the TV was very small and was difficult to watch from my bed (which was very comfortable).
Would definitely recommend getting club lounge access which offers fantastic views across the Tianhe sports stadium. Gym facilities are decent with a good range of free weights. Room service was prompt and food was delicious. Definitely did not taste like "chinafied" western food. Try the Quessadillas!

Room Tip: Get a high floor facing the Tianhe Sports Centre for a great view and if you're lucky - of the C...

Having traveled and lived in a fair share of hotels in mainland China, I feel I can say that Westin, while may look great (the lobby, restaurants and huge rooms), the staff really needs to do a bit better to deliver the five star treatment.
The airconditioning in one of the rooms didn't work and staff had to be called at midnight to get it right. (very disappointing)
Also, the concierge staff was very inept. We stood in a queue to get taxi on a busy saturday evening which clearly was for hotel guests, but there was no regulation, and assertive guests kept cutting the queue to get to the taxi. Telling the concierge staff, they defended the guests! Finally, I had to jump in to get the person in the queue their rightful taxi before someone could take it out of turn. Very Very disappointing.
We mentioned this to the duty manager, and things seemed to be better the next day but it shouldn't have happened to begin with.
Having said this, I must comment that the room size is huge, which we enjoyed, also they gave us a late checkout - appreciated that. The Set Lunch menu a the Italian restaurant Prego is also very good.
Next time I am at Gz, I would perhaps look for another hotel. Being a SPG member, I had expected something better!
