We had a wonderful stay! It was a very easy check in and our room was ready really early. Room itself was clean and spacious. Loved the little balcony:) Top location with everything walking distance! Breakfast had a great selection, good coffee as well! But mainly staff is really lovely! They just go above and beyond:)

We stayed here for my birthday over the grand final weekend. We had such an amazing experience and we honestly can’t wait to stay here again. The lady who checked us in (I believe her name was Caroline), she was so lovely and helpful. The Westin team surprised us with a bottle of champagne and birthday card and then a cake with a candle later on at dinner. The room was great and very clean. We stayed over grand final weekend so there lots celebrations that went in past midnight but we couldn’t really hear it from our room. The location of the hotel is great, it’s walking distance to most of the main attractions in the city. Overall we had a wonderful stay at The Westin and we can’t wait to stay again.
