“Good place to stay for business”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2012

We had our sales conference there, 700 people, efficient check in, friendly staff. Needed to go to another place for meetin hotel's transportation took care. Breakfast very good, serving the cappuchino when asked. Food during breaks and in the evening good.

Overall very good place to have a conference, parking available, rooms are modern.

Room Tip: Stayed at the 24th floor very quiet

I was in this hotel for one night on 24th Nov 2011. The hotel is at a good location nearby the christmas market and the front office staff are realy smart for a quick check in or check out. Only negative thing is that although I got my room at 15:00 hrs but my other two friends had to wait another one hour for check in. The breakfast is really good with lot of varieties but becomes too crowded if you go around 8:30 AM. Overall the stay was realy good.

I was part of a fairly large travel party with an artist.
Originally we were supposed to be at another, only 4-star hotel in Leipzig.

Having heard good things about The Westin I made the proposal to switch over from our old hotel.
Re-scheduling and booking went super smooth, checkin was handled professionally and speedy - without loosing the eye for details and special requests (connecting doors, anti-allergic pillows, etc).

The rooms (deluxe and junior suites) were just great, a little outdate here and there, agreed - but still in excellent shape and very clean.

We did not get the chance to enjoy the breakfast, due to early check-out, but some of us had dinner and room service and were full of good criticism.

Over all The Westin is my first choice when in Leipzig - its location is super convenient, the staff is great and the hotel is amongst the best the city has to offer.

I'll be there again soon and I am looking forward to it.

Room Tip: get a room with a city-view, especially in the winter time. You'll have a amazing view over snow...

Upon arrival the check in staff were all very friendly and attentive - Top Marks to them!! They are to be commended for their efficient service.

Room - What is up with a Double bed and a Single Bed Duvet??? Oh yes and ONE pillow and ONE Towel only?? - Not GOOD at all.. Not the standard that we are used too at all..

Late Check Out for long haul destinations should be allowed ie Australia, South Africa, America. Not comfortable when one needs to be out by noon but ones flight is only at 19h00!! Some concideration should be given!!

Stayed here recently during a conference, and have to say that I was disappointed with the comfort of the rooms. The beds weren't up to the normal Westin "Heavenly Bed" standard, and the pillows and blankets were completely uncomfortable. The room itself was very warm unless the window was opened, in which case it was too noisy to sleep. Housekeeping left a fair bit to be desired as well. The wifi is quite expensive, too.

The public areas, such as the gym, restaurants, bars, etc are all pretty good though, so it's certainly not all negative.

Stayed there twice while attending Expo's in Leipzig. Both times had very good positive experience. I especially would like to highlight their breakfast-excellent choice of foods all of which are very delicious! Agree with other reviews, the building exterior doesn't look particularly appealing but it's in no way a big issue. Views across the city are very good, especially at sunrise. There was one thing which surprised me a bit-while switching between TV channels I accidentally came across the one broadcasting full hard core :) Some might say it's a "nice" touch, especially so that it was FOC, but don't think that families travelling with young children will appreciate such hotel policies. Leipzig centre is close by, just 5 mins on foot and there is a large number of good restaurants and bars serving delicious food and drinks. Would recommend the hotel without hesitation for business travellers as well as for those visiting Leipzig for a short city break.

Really good luxury hotel. Beautiful lobby, very nice spa with a big swimming pool, friendly staff. Modern and comfortable rooms with amazing views on the historical city center. Standard rooms are okay, but a bit below the usual Westin standard. Try to upgrade to a Grand Deluxe Room, it's definately worth the extra money. Breakfast was probably the best I've ever had. Try the wonderful bar up on the 26th floor - certainly the best view of Leipzig you can get!
