OK, maybe the overall standard of western hotels in Xi'an is poor but there has to be better than this. Nothing is inviting about this property. The location, although at first glimpse, it looks good, one quickly discovers that this is not what Xi'an should be about. Xi'an is a city with over 3,000 years of history and besides the Giant Wild Goose Pagoda, there is not much here. Everything is large boulevards and shopping malls. Most of it seems build within the last year or two. This part of town does not have any soul! This is interesting to the local population because Chinese love new and flashy, but this not why one should come to Xi'an. Now to the hotel itself. Although the hotel is new (less than 2 years old) and at first sight nice, it is probably the worst Westin I have stayed at. Staff is clueless and untrained. The bar is empty and drink choices are basic, the Executive Club is also sub-par. I would say the worst service of any SPG hotel. If you must stay at the SPG property, I would probably pick one of the other two.
