I've stayed at the Westin Valencia a couple of times now, and have never experienced as much as a minute of disappointment there. I just love it. If you want a relaxing oasis that provides easy access to the historical centre of Valencia, a few minutes walk to the shops and great transport links to the City of Arts & Sciences and the beachfront, etc. there isn't a better spot than this.
The hotel itself is in a beautiful building which I believe used to be part (the facade) of a textile factory. All the public areas of the Westin Valencia are beautiful: the lobby, the bar and the terrace, especially. The rooms are huge; when we walked in first, we couldn't believe how big they were. They're easily the biggest hotel rooms I've ever had the pleasure of staying in. The staff are truly fantastic and welcome you as if welcoming you home. Nothing is too much trouble for them and they seem genuinely happy to help you—and genuinely happy to be working there.
The "Old Town" is about 5-10 minutes walk from the door; a bus that will bring you directly to the City of Arts and Sciences (a MUST see) stops about 3 minutes away and a Metro/tram that will bring you almost all the way to the beach is about 5 minutes walk from the hotel in the opposite direction (i.e. behind it, towards the stadium). I think we paid around €25-30 for a taxi from the train station to get to the Westin Valencia in the first place.
Valencia is a wonderful place, and the Westin is the perfect place to enjoy it from. There's nothing better than coming back here on a warm evening to relax in the terrace (where occasionally, even musical entertainment is provided) with an Agua de Valencia, and return a few hours later to enjoy a delicious breakfast in the same spot in the morning sun. I've stayed in a lot of Starwood hotels both in Europe and the US and this continues to be the winner, hands down, for me. I can't wait to go back.
