Westin Warsaw: From Bloc to Bright

2

The Westin Warsaw Hotel Review is part of the #NoCollusion, No Albania for TPOL where I break my 100 country count mark. See the World Map for where I’ve been.


I would like to see pictures of buildings that were here before the Westin was built. I’m sure they would be starkly different from this towering hotel which is next to JP Morgan’s headquarters. Warsaw’s transition from Communist Bloc to a modern city is exemplified by the contrast of these two pictures:

Warsaw of today
Warsaw before: Is that Soviet Russia, Mongolia, or Warsaw?

Hotel Itself

From inside and out, this is a modern hotel.

Location

Conveniently located at al. Jana Pawła II 21, 00-854  (John Paul II), the Westin Warsaw is within walking distance to Old Town and, Papa forgive me, near the infamous Pub Crawl.

Room

There’s something about Westin rooms that make them special. They’re not particularly luxurious but they are nicely appointed. St. Regis is special but I have to say that Westin is my favorite SPG brand.

Bathroom

I love Westin soaps. Rest assured, White Tea Aloe and the pointy soap is available at the Westin Warsaw.

View

A corner room with a view – what’s not to like? Again, it’s worth taking a moment to think about what was here before the modernization of the city and the buildings that connect the past to the present. 

Lounge

The view from the lounge was not as nice as from my room, but I came for the breakfast.

Overall

The Westin Warsaw shows how developed this city is. While the Sheraton was nice, I would recommend staying here.
