There's a new hotel trend going on in some south east asian countries in the recent years. I am talking about "boutique" style hotels. Their have trendy interior/exterior designs and most of them charge a premium for their "unique" personality. Unforfunately, most of them come with pretentious services, tacky furnishings and very small space. I've stayed a few in Taipei and every one of them disappointed me greatly. So this time I decided to go old fashion and stay at a branded hotel. Boy, was I in a lovely surprise. The room in Westine Taipei is twice the size as most of the "boutique" hotels in town. The newly renovated room come with marble bath, super comfy bed, comteporary furnitures and top notch services. I love thier bakery in the lobby area. One morning I wanna try some of the freshly baked goodies but I wanna have them in the tranquil restaurant that's nestle in the corner. The bakery bring them to my table and they also put the rest of the goodies(my appetite is small in the morning so I ask them if they can slice each pastry/cookie and wrap the rest for me), not only they wrap it, they put in a beautiful box and place the box in an hang bag for me. One afternoon I was chatting with one of the bell man about a local night market. Few hours later we decided to go there for a visit. The bell man hail a taxi for us and as soon as he opened the door for us, he asked us if we want to go to that night market we were chatting about few hours ealier. Trust me, this is a very busy hotel and they talk to many different guests at any given time. So it's a bit surprise for us he remembered our conversation. We encounterd same level of quality services everywhere in this hotel, from the moment we checked in, the time we work out in the gym, housekeeping, and oc, the lovely bell man. Thank you Westine Taipei for providing us such wonderful memories. We will be back, hopefully soon.
