As stated in the prior reviews, the only thing that is keeping this hotel from being 5 stars is the location. First, it is difficult to find, as it is essentially located in an alley behind some deteriorating auto mechanics. Second, the area around it is grimy (minus the new apartments next to it), and I would definitely not be walking around the area after dark. However, it is about 15 minutes walking distance from subway and Aberdeen Centre and 10 minutes from another plaza with plenty of Chinese food. You just need to know which direction to walk in.
The hotel itself is much smaller than I expected. Don't expect a huge Westin hotel lobby. The lobby is clean, small, and functional. Each floor also does not seem like it has very many rooms, many 10 or less per floor. However, once inside the rooms, they are very nice. The Westin Heavenly beds are really awesome, and they have tea/coffee makers and tub and separate shower. It is very clean.
On the whole, it seems like the Radisson is located in a much better spot, but the room itself at the Westin are probably much nicer. There is a free shuttle that runs every 30 minutes on the 15 and 45. It takes about 10 minutes or so to get to the airport. There is also a business center where you can check in and print out boarding passes for free.
