We stayed at the West Plaza for four nights. The hotel is located across from an Information site which can arrange tours of the city and other attractions. Cuba Street and waterfront is an easy walk.
We had a good first impression upon entering the hotel lobby as it was bright and fairly modern. Check-in was efficient and the staff was helpful.
Our room was a corner room on the third floor (room 327). The room was clean and tidy. The furniture was not fancy, but it was comfortable and clean. A major benefit of the room was the bright sunshine in the morning and afternoon as there were windows on two sides of the room (although the thick curtains kept the room quite dark in the morning until you were ready to let the sunshine in).
There is a backpacker accommodation and bar adjacent to the hotel and there were a few nights where the noise from the not too courteous patrons of those establishments made their presence known to us when we were trying to sleep. The fan from the wall heater produced just enough white noise to drown out the clatter.
The hallways to the rooms are a bit dreary and there are a couple doors to pass through after you get off the lift, but it is really not that bad. The mini-bar, although expensive, is no different than any other mini-bar at any other hotel.
There is a restaurant in the hotel, but we never ate there as there are so many food choices in the area.
We would go back to the West Plaza and would rate it 3.5 stars.
