My husband and I stayed at the Westin Macau for 3 nights following a 5 night stay at the Hong Kong Sheraton. We really enjoyed our stay. The staff was so helpful, expecially the concierge stand.
I don't understand the complaints about the remoteness of this hotel. If you want to stay near casinos, then stay AT or NEAR a casino. That isn't what this hotel is about. This hotel was a relaxing retreat after hectic Hong Kong. I think that the free shuttle running on the half hour was very conveinent. When we didn't want to wait for a shuttle, we just hopped in a cab. We thought that cabs were reasonably price in both Hong Kong and Macau. The staff would write out your destination in Chinese to the cab driver so you were insured that you would arrive at the correct destination. Each cab also has a list of popular destinations in both English and Chinese so you can just point to where you wish to go when hailing one in town.
We are glad we went to Macau. We aren't big gamblers but had a blast playing Sic Bo for the first time. Do try it if you go, it's so easy to learn and something different than you typically see in Vegas.
Also, do a pedicab from the ferry dock. We did a 1 hour tour for about 300 HKD. Our driver was so nice. It was a great thing to do our first day to orient ourselves with locations that we wanted to return and spend more time exploring. Our driver also took several pictures of us along the way. It was a great way to get pictures together without asking someone at each place. I never like doing that.
The Westin is within walking distance from Fernando's. We ate there each of the 3 evenings we were there (I'm embarrassed to say) It was great. Exactly the kind of place we look for on vacation. Local, unique, with great food, good vibe and great value.
We ate the breakfast buffet at the Westin every morning. It was average but fine with us as it was included with our room rate. We rarely think that hotel food is ever very good so we avoided eating there other than breakfast.
The rooms are very nicely appointed with the best thing being the heavenly shower. The double shower heads are indeed heavenly.
My only complaint of this hotel is the slight smokey smell on our floor, the 7th floor. I don't know if the Westin had a non-smoking floor, but this wasn't one of them. We even asked to be changed to a nonsmoking room and were quickly changed to a room on the same floor that smelled pretty much the same as the first room.
Westins should all go smoke-free considering they have posters and literature everywhere with a picture of a flower with "Breathe" printed beneath it. How can you breathe with people smoking all around you?
