Simply the best hotel we stayed in out of the seven places we stayed during our 3-week Australian holiday. Significantly better experience than we had (a week prior) at the Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel down the block, and I'd have no reservation
recommending that place too...but the Westin was better. We got upgraded to their Heritage room, and the room had everything. Great fitness center. Great location. Loved this place....we'll be coming back.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
Stop for casual breakfast at the Martin Place food court (downstairs) and follow-up with a short walk to the National Gallery of Art (free admission).
The Pool and Workout area are very difficult to get to as they are in the old part of the hotel! Parking is 50 dollars a day which is ridiculous even for a city as for the location and the rooms I upgraded to the Executive level and my girlfriend
and I were both very disappointed with the breakfast buffet and evening snack selection as I am a Starwood preferred guest and this was one of the worse executive lounges I ever visited! So to recap very nice place and centrally located but way overpriced for what you actually receive!
At first I thought it a bit pricey, but after dining , (breakfast was included), it was a real bargin. The included breakfasts were superb.
The room was very comfy with great ammenities.
Beware of the lobby bar - very expensive.
