We stayed in this hotel for three nights at the end of 2012, we hadn't been to Cape Town before and decided on the Westin as it was an international chain hotel, we thought the rooms would be comfortable and also it was quite well located in the city, not too far from the airport. The best things about the hotel were free the shuttle service to the waterfront, the rooms were comfortable and the gym which was small but well equipped. Also the hotel was just around the corner from the "hop on hop off" bus - by far the best way to get oriented in Cape Town. Nonetheless I would not stay here again, we did not like the fact that the air conditioning was switched on to maximum in the public areas and was by far too cold, the swimming pool was too small for a hotel of this size, it was full with three children in it! A bigger pool preferably outdoor is needed. I don't know whether it was the time of year but the staff appeared to be stressed and not really very polite. On the whole I felt this was a faceless hotel totally lacking in character but we did choose it for its predictability so in a way we got what we expected. I will not return to this hotel on my next visit to this fantastic city.
