My first visit to the Westin in Sydney. Check in brought those lovely Westin scents (which I realised were the same as in another Westin I've used a fair bit - turns out it's the "signature" scent for Westin and really nice actually.........). All staff members I dealt with were excellent - each went out of their way to be pleasant, courteous and helpful.
The room was nice, although quite a bit smaller than my preferred Sydney 5 star and as I was going down the cheapskate route (anonymous booking site!) I guess I found myself in one of the lesser rooms. That is perfectly fair - you get what you pay for........
However, that meant that I had an internal view rather than an outside window - not ideal, but tolerable if the price is right.
The interior of the building is really nice though - a lovely modelling around a classic building with some really nice heritage parts retained.
There was a more than reasonable free lobby wifi service (which btw worked in the rooms!) and a really good gym - good in terms of facilities and equipment, but also in terms of staff expertise, classes and the inspiration provided by its members.
I do like to find a hotel with a full service gym which has external members rather than just the sorry excuse for an "exercise room" that some hotels provide.
On that basis alone, the Westin joins my select group of about 5 downtown 5 star hotels that I would have no problem in revisiting.
