The Westin Guangzhou Reviews
Great rooms, Good Location Jul 18, 2010
Our stay at the Westin started with a ride from the train station, to the hotel, in a brand new S-Class Mercedes. The lobby was clean and nice, not as luxurious as the Shangri-La, but then again Westin has a different philosophy. Everything is meant to be relaxing and modern.
Check in went smoothly, but I immediately noticed a difference when compared to the Shangri-La. The service at the Westin wasn't that great. The staff struggled with English and they just didn't have the same attention to detail.
The room was nice and large. They charged for internet which was a pain, but free Wi-Fi was offered in the lobby. The shower and bathroom were luxurious. The location was very convenient. Centrally located, near malls and shops. We even found a great Chinese medicine/massage place only a few minutes walk.
Overall a very nice hotel, certainly 5 star by Chinese standards. However, if I were coming to Guangzhou again, I'd definitely choose the Shangri-La.
