Kuala Lumpur Hotels - The Westin

The Westin is another 5-star hotel in Kuala Lumpur which is a part of the Starwood stable. Located in Bukit Bintang - the Golden Triangle of KL, it is also one of the most conveniently located hotels for shopping. It is right beside the Starhill Gallery Shopping Centre, opposite the Pavilion Shopping Centre and within a short walk to Lot 10, Bukit Bintang Plaza and Sungei Wang Plaza - the epicentre of shopping in KL.

More modern then the Sheraton Imperial - The Westin is a stylish hotel, probably just behind Hilton KL in terms of design cool factor. The lobby is quite small, but it has a nice touch of having an all day counter serving refreshing elixirs - actually cold water infused with orange/cinnamon or other fruits and spices. Other facilities are spread over split-levels, with a lobby bar on a lower level and the coffeehouse on the upper level. The overall design is cool, clean and elegant.

The Westin also boasts many F&B outlets which are some of the best in town - the Prego Italian Restaurant, Eest Pan-Asian Restaurant, and Qba Latin American Bar & Grill. Eest is easily one of the most stylish restaurants in KL - worth a special visit just to see the  modern and innovative design.

The room layout is quite standard, and the design again clean-line and modern. The bed is billed as Westin's famous "Heavenly Bed" which is even offered on sale if you would like to have one of your own. To me it is a little bit too soft - as I prefer a firmer bed.

The staff at the Westin are very warm and friendly. Checking in is a very pleasant experience. If you have stayed there once, they will remember all your preferences and previous requests. Should be standard for a 5-star hotel - I know, but it is amazing how many hotels get it wrong. 

Yo can't beat the Westin in terms of location. On top of that, it is a very stylish and comfortable hotel with lots of great dining options. Can't ask for more !
