4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I got the chance to stay a couple of days in this hotel and I have two words to describe it, Elegant and Comfortable. The main decoration theme seems to be like France in the 1800 years. It's really impressive how good are mixed the decoration and the comfort. The rooms are big and have good illumination. The view from... More

What a hidden secret. I honestly didn't know what to expect, but The Westgate is an exceptional hotel. I realize its decor may not suit everyone's tastes, but it was like a regal Old World hotel -- and not in a cheap way. Service was good, but there never seemed to be enough staff. It took 20 minutes for the... More

The staff here are always willing to help you. Any questions you have, they should have an answer for it. The rooms are big with a beautiful en-suite bathroom. More than enough space for a couple. The room comes with a nice sized flat screen tv and a fridge. Also some nice body wash and soaps. The Spa on the... More

We spent two nights at The Westgate Hotel (9/16-9/18) and had a great experience. As others mentioned, the hotel is a little dated and could use a facelift, but the rooms are huge and I appreciated the spacious bathrooms and counter space. We enjoyed the 3rd floor amenities (pool, hot tub, workout facilities etc) which never seemed to be crowded... More

After being let down by our Air BNB, we had to find accommodation quick! We spent a little time researching, and decided that due to the good deal we found online we would stay at the Westgate. We turned up an hour later, about 10.30am and were able to get into our room straight away (this was such a relief... More

Just spent a week at The Westgate. The staff was friendly, the pool was nice and the room (although the bathroom fixtures are outdated) was clean and spacious. However, I did not sleep past 5:30 each morning due to the train being right outside our window and comes by every 3-5 minutes. Not sure how they can charge the same... More

For the price point of this hotel just amazing value. The early check in was spot on and the front desk staff as perfect as it can get. When we realized there were no ice machines the front desk promptly ordered some ice to be delivered which we found in our room after going straight down to the pool. The... More

The service is great and the lobby is beautiful, one thing disappointed me was the room not as fancy as I was expected, it was spacious though. Elevators in the lobby was quite different from other hotels, which you have to stand in the middle to make sure you don't miss one of the elevators. Before you open your room... More

Everyone was very friendly. The turn down service was awesome. The best part of the room is the shower. It was amazing. The bed was comfortable. The hot tub was relaxing and the pool was cleaned. Good wifi connection.

I won't lie, at first my husband and I were skeptical about staying here because of the decor. When we arrived, we were amazed. Absolutely beautiful hotel with an amazing staff. We received a beautiful room on the 10th floor overlooking the rooftop pool and downtown. Everything was extremely clean. The bed was one of the most comfortable beds we've... More
