    The view of Cape Town from The Westin. World class hotel and there's free WiFi.

    Try the spinach & papaya smoothie at breakfast. It's brilliant.

    Visit the spa and enjoy the on-site facilities. Lap pool, jacuzzi, sauna/steam rooms, the beautiful sea of dreams and all of this on the 19th floor.

    Situated centrally. Westin Hotel part of Starwood Hotels and Resorts. What more needs to be said. The only place to stay when in Cape Town.

    Convention center has a convenient ATM and nice cafe if you want a quieter breakfast than the restaurant.

    If you want convenience to V&A Waterfront, this is your hotel... Big and terrific in everything

    The best time to use the wireless Internet is between the hours of 03:00 and 05:00--when everyone else is asleep!

    Best hotel in ZA... One of the best breakfast I've ever had. View is beautiful, and Executive Lounge had the best sushi in Cape Town.

    Breakfast on the ground floor is much better than the SPG executive floor breakfast. Spa and hair salon r great. Ask for Themba at reception and Megan at concierge for the best service

    Best service in any of the Westins I stayed in around the world (been to around 15 around the world) concierge team is absolutely amazing, they organized the whole week of trips and activities for us

    Decent hotel with big rooms. Lobby coffee area is great for meetings during the day, not busy or noisy. Location is the best in town.

    Bring your swimming costume. Also free shuttle to the waterfront every 30 min

  • Morgan W.

    Great breakfast for SPG members. Nice staff, though not necessarily experts in the local area. Internet is frustratingly slow. Free shuttle every half hour to V&A is pretty useful.

    Buffett food is ok

    Soup to nuts probably the best Westin I've stayed at worldwide. The windows in our 16th floor corner room made some strange noises, but other than that it was a top notch experience.

    I had difficulty sending my tweets from the alwayson WiFi - but the place is cool

    Ask the travel desk about private tours. Our tour of Cape Point was wonderful.

    Great hotel and stunning city views but power points are not their strong point, in the guest rooms, lounge or lobby!

    Dan Humby · October 30, 2013

    Great place to stay, not far from either Waterfront or Downtown area. Wonderful view from almost all rooms. Stunning view from gym and spa area!

    If you can get yourself to the club floor, it's well worth it - great breakfast, happy hour - all free!

  • Ndidi

    I love the showers! It's soothing and makes me wanna shower every minute. The bed is cozy and comfortable. U might wanna go up higher floor and always request rooms overseeing the water parks.

    Ndidi · February 7, 2013
  • Brian E.

    Great breakfast. Catch a boat trip to the Waterfront from just outside the hotel for R30!

    The hotel gym must have the best view of any gym in SA!

    Meeting room organisation not great and staff not most attentive.

    Wi-fi strong on 11th floor, beautiful hotel, super cozy bar areas (including cigar lounge), shuttle every 30 minutes to V&A waterfront where there is LOTS of great things to do there!

    If you enjoy a pool or jacuzzi soak do bring your trunks. It is just a lap pool but nice view. The jacuzzi has similar views. Gym is 24hr is compact but new.
