I was staying in Cape Town on business and attending a conference in the ICC, so this hotel could not have been more convenient, right next door, steps away.
As you would expect from a 5 star Westin hotel you get fantastic service and comfort, all of course at a price. But my room on the 15th floor could not have been better. And the view of Table Mountain?! Well, it goes down as one of the best views I've ever experienced from any hotel.
I want to single out one particular aspect of my stay. I arrived early on Saturday morning and so had some time to kill before work began. I was pretty tired after an overnight flight, so decided to book spa treatments. The spa is on the top floor and is absolutely fantastic. After an hour-long and massage I was taken to a room where they had heated water beds with fur wraps and was told I could lie down in there and sleep for as long as I liked. You will have to go a long way to find anything more comfortable. The staff in the spa were lovely too. I spent a wonderful hour with two ladies who did a manicure and pedi and kept me happily entertained with conversation about life in the city.
I never made it to the rooftop infinity pool, but I'm pretty sure that would have been an amazing experience too.
