“A very good hotel”
Reviewed July 28, 2011

We stayed here on a 4 night trip coming back from Thailand. What a great hotel. We were upgraded to an Executive room on the 8th floor, which has quite frankly an incredible amount of real estate and facilities. Two large double beds, a couple of chairs and a table, a very large flat screen TV, DVD player, nespresso machine, a well stocked minibar, dressing area and a bathroom with separate bath, shower and toilet. I've stayed in hotels which the bathroom size alone comprised the room.

The linen was a lovely and the room itself spotless, it came with free wifi although that isn't the case with all rooms. Why do hotels charge for wifi? Its just money grabbing, the rate of the room per night means that they needn't worry about the tiny cost of internet access.

The aircon, as you'd expect, was excellent and all controlled from a single keypad at the bedside. The service to the room was first class. We had a problem with the internet and coffee machine on the first day and no sooner had I put the phone down than a man was there to sort the problem out.

The hotel and facilities were great the pool(s) sorted us all out, a small 3 year old loved the kiddies pool, covered in shade all day, I loved the lap pool and there was a lazy swim to the pool bar pool that rounded things off nicely. The pool area service was great, lovely mojitos, and ice cold beer, delivered to your lounger.

The location was a little surreal in that it was surrounded by skyscrapers, but amazing nevertheless. And at the end of the day its what Dubai is all about. There was a metro station nearby and walkable but in July do remember the heat.

I used the gym which was first class, all the equipment looked brand new and the staff were very helpful. The changing facilities at the gym were excellent too.

Having kid with us was quite limiting on the restaurant front as we ate early every night in the Blue Orange Restaurant which was very very good for the style of food be served. The staff both cooking and serving were more friendly than I've encountere before. Bobby & Ayon on the pasta were firm favourites of my daughter. If you get a chance and you see the Head Chef, Fabrice he makes a one mean crepe. Riyon on the serving side was very helpful, although that is not to say the others weren't very attentive.

The hotel had a few more restaurants and bars that looked great although I wasn't able to experience them first had. The menu for the Hunters Grill looked pretty good though.

It has to be said that July is very hot in Dubai which explains the great rate that we got, an average of 47C is hotter than I've ever experienced, but by the pool it didn't seem quite so unbearable and it wouldn't put me off going again at that time. Most of the sight seeing we did had the benefit of aircon so the Burj Khalifa, Ski Dubai etc weren't a problem. The wander around the Souks in the old town wasn't quite so easy though, but all bearable.

One tip is make sure you have a map and some knowledge of where you are going. The taxi's weren't the best. The first ride we took to the Dubai Mall the guy tried to charge us double the meter after taking us into the car park and claiming that he needed extra for the car parking fees, an interesting conversation ensued. The second guy then didn't know where the Gold souk was. Although the fares aren't silly money in any event.

All in all I would recommend the hotel and Dubai itself for that matter.

Westin Dubai presents itself as an attractive and scenic option for any nature loving person or for someone close to it (considering Dubai has more man made creations than natural ones). The service is great, but the pricing is on the higher side than usual, even by Westin standards. Probably leveraging the position advantage or due to other reasons, money worth is the only drawback. Pleasant place for vegetarians,though the food is not tasty to be honest. If you are in Dubai, and wish to spend a peaceful getaway with family, Westin Dubai is the place, you need to take care of the expenses part though

Room Tip: Westin Dubai positions itself as a privilege facility, book early, and you might get an upgrade.

This hotel has the most of the amenities that you should expect from a 5 star hotel, but if it really wants a 5 star reputation, It needs to improve the restaurant choice for half board as the blue orange has the same food 7 days a week and is they only one you can use .......
pool area is great and very good size
the beaches are excellent as you would expect
poor paint work for a new hotel and dated furniture in the blue orange restaurant ....

Stayed at this hotel with my wife for our anniversary. We have left a note about the anniversary and we found beautiful roses arranged over the bed and the bath which was followed by some complimentary cake and white wine.
The room is very spacious with beautiful sea view, beds and sheets are great and the bathroom is great too. very clean with all the needed amenities.

The beach and the pools are amazing and beautiful.

We have tried two of the restaurants and the food is very good but not great.

The only downside of the hotel was the spa. It does not give you the feel of a luxury spa. Apart from the nice entrance, you end up walking into some kind of athletes treatment rooms and the treatments are not of that relaxing experience.
