Westin Cape Town: Home Away from Home

The Westin Cape Town Hotel Review is part of the South America & Africa Points Heist Trip Report.

Getting There: Uber from the airport is the most convenient option.

Before heading to Franschhoek, I stayed at the Protea Waterfront and the Protea Seapoint. Both were better than the DoubleTree, where I stayed last time I visited Cape Town, but neither were better than the Radisson Blu Waterfront. How would the Westin stack up?a building with glass windows a sign on a wall a building with many windows a fountain in front of a building a building with flags in front of it

The Location
Admittedly, the Waterfront is the go-to place for tourists. That does not mean that it isn’t worth visiting. Indeed, my favorite sushi restaurant in Cape Town is located in the Waterfront. For those that want to be in the heart of Cape Town, still near the waterfront, and close to Greenpoint and Seapoint, the Westin is an ideal option.

The Room
Walk in and smell the beautiful Westin aroma. From the spacious lobby, head to your room.While I did not receive a suite, the room was spacious. a bed with white sheets and pillows a hotel room with a bed and a desk a chair with a lamp in a room a table with a plate of food on it a room with wood cabinets and glass doorsa bed with white sheets and lamps in a room

The Amenities 
From an espresso machine, the bottles of water, to the welcome gift, the Westin Cape Town was on par with other Westins.

The View 
The room had a great view of the ocean, the World Cup Soccer stadium, and the city. a city with many cars and buildings a view of a city from a window

The Bathroom
Recall that this trip started in Cusco, Peru, over a month ago. Thousands of miles later, it was great to lather up in the old familiar white tea aloe soap.a group of white towels and a few white tubes on a shelf a bathroom with a sink and bathtub a bathroom with a sink and towels a bathtub with a towel on the edge a shower head in a bathroom

The Happy Hour
For happy hour, the hotel serves Platinum guests hors d’oeuvre, beer, and wine. I brought my own bottle from none other than Rupert’s vineyard.a bottle of wine next to a glass a person drinking from a bottle

I enjoyed the Westin Cape Town but have to give the nod to the Radisson Blu Waterfront because my room was right on the ocean and I was within walking distance to the love it or hate it Waterfront.
