Perfect birthday trip

The staff at the Westin was first class! We were there for six nights. From our welcome in the lobby to the wonderful daily breakfast everything was on point. The complimentary breakfast is a great way to start every morning before we headed out on our adventures for the day. Shuttle to VA waterfront made getting around easy. The spa on 19th floor was excellent. We would recommend and stay again.

Buy tickets to Table Mountain and Robbens island before you leave for your trip. They both depend on the weather. Much better to have them for the next day than be disappointed with them being sold out.

Good location

We spent 13 nights at the Westin Cape Town for conference and vacation combined. The hotel was very nice. The buffet breakfast was amazing - everything you could imagine for many different cultures. I counted 17 different juices and smoothies available as well as sushi (!) for breakfast options. Just before we left, the housekeeping staff mistakenly took some wineglasses we got at a winetasting event. We mentioned it to the concierge and just received an email that they had found them and will send them to us! That's service! They were friendly, helpful and polite. They have earned their stars.

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.
