Overall this was a very nice short stay. This is one of the better Westin’s that I have been to. You will love the hotel if you are just planning to play golf or spend time by the pool. The hotel is also convenient if flying out early in the morning out of Abu Dhabi airport. It is not the most convenient hotel for sightseeing in the city center of Abu Dhabi, however
There was still some construction going on at the Westin, although you could hardly tell that. They didn’t have any suites ready yet so the Platinum upgrade was to a ground floor room with a direct access to the golf course and sitting area outside. The room was very high and quite nice. The fitness center was not ready but hotel guests were offered a ride using a buggy to another nearby one. The main deeper pool was still being constructed when I was there. All these have probably been completed by now, or will be shortly.
The room itself was very functional but I didn’t quite like the air-conditioning control panel. It took me a while to find out how to turn it off altogether. This was mid-December so there was no need for the AC in the evening, and quite frankly I didn’t like the way it was blowing right to the bed. The bed was heavenly as one would expect from Westin. The bathroom was spacious and liked the darkish color scheme. The room itself had high ceilings that made it feel more spacious than it was.
The good thing of being on the ground floor was the sitting area outside that opened to the golf course. You could just sit down and watch people on the golf course. This also made the room to feel bit bigger than it really was.
Breakfast was at their international restaurant called Fairways. The spread was rather impressive and of good quality. My eggs benedict was another story though.
The fitness center was not ready when I was there so cannot comment about it. The pool area looked very nice, although they were still working on the deeper pool. It should, however, be completed by now. There were plenty of sun chairs around and the pool bar looked very inviting but unfortunately I didn’t have time for an adult beverage.
