It was one of the three hotels, I stayed at in Tianhe district of Guangzhou during my business travel to China, and it can easily score up to be the best in the area. The hotel welcomes you with a typical Westin's refreshing scented ambience in its lobby and in its rooms. I requested them for a higher floor and they agreed to give me one on 20th floor, from where I had a great view of the Guangzhou city landscape with the iconic CITIC Plaza right in the foreground.The best thing about the room was its size, one of the biggest I have seen in non-suite rooms of hotels located in the center of commercial districts of any big city. Most of the staff were decent English speakers. The hotel's location is a primary advantage of any kind of traveler. You can easily find taxis queued up during office-going hours outside the lobby and its just a few minutes walk from the nearest subway stations (Linhexi or Guangzhou East station). I had great dining experiences in Prego, which is on the 40th floor. You can really have amazing views of the city from the restaurant, with the IFC and Canton tower all lit up and shining in the far in the evening. I tried the restaurant on the 1st floor, Qba on a saturday where they were having something called the 70s' Shanghai evening where they had performances of professional singers, presumably depicting the 70s times in Shanghai, which was interesting. Overall, a great stay, it was for sure.
