Westin cape town

Great hotel and location. Best breakfast ever. Staff could not have been more helpful. Guest services helped us daily with tour descriptions and bookings and restaurant bookings and recommendations. Only complaint was size of hotel pool, However view from 19th floor of Table Mountain was gorgeous.

Westin saved our trip

Thank goodness for the wonderful staff at the Westin. We picked up food poisoning somewhere in CapeTown. Fortunately we had a very comfortable room. The staff went out of their way to ensure that we stayed comfortable, hydrated, and fed, even making a special chicken noodle soup especially for us and bringing us (free) bottled water by the case. While the food poisoning was horrible (not their fault), they made it bearable. We loved the location too.

Take the Red Bus ride one full circuit to orient yourselves to all the sights worth seeing. Then plan your journey and ride it again. You can reach almost everything you want to from the Red Bus.

The Ideal CapeTown Stay

We stayed for 3 nights during the very busy World Cup Period. Although Hotel was full, we found Staff to be very Helpful and Accomadating. The Hotel's Location is absolutly perfect, right between Waterfront and Downtown, everything was accessable by foot (Max. 5 min walk)..... In short - "I'll be Back:)"

Fantastic Staff

The concierge desk is the best I've seen, and I have stayed in hotels all over the world. Our trip around the Cape of Good Hope was made possible by the concierge. He assured us we could manage it with a rental car and we were happy we took his advice. We were there during the Cape Town Argus bicycle tour and check-in and check-out was smooth even though the hotel was full.

Check out the prices at the Green Market before you hit the V&A mega mall. You can bargain at the Green Market, but no dealing in the mall.
