The Westin is definitely not the kind of hotel I can afford. But even if I could I wouldn’t. I’d rather save the money for other thing. Anyway, I somehow got a chance to stay there 1 night last week. Another 5 star hotel to the list.
Location: The Westin is located in Bukit Bintang area, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It’s just beside the Pavillion and a short taxi / train ride from KL Sentral which pretty much where you would get off if you’re coming to KL. So yeah, it’s definitely very well located. It’s a short walk to almost anything. Twin Tower, KLCC, Shopping Malls, etc. This prime location is probably part of what contributed to its rating…. I think.
Value: I checked on Agoda last week it was around S$ 370+ for a superior room. I was like damn! I don’t think that the room is worth that money. I mean personally I think the room is quite small at least compared to what you can get from a 4 or 5 star hotel in my country. The bed also quite small. Though the furnishing is very new and such, it’s pretty much expected of it. So I think the rating probably take in the account that it has a lot of facilities like conference room, a floor with pool area, gym extra. Nevertheless, I think didn’t find it worth the the bucks. But oh well, it’s probably just because I’m thrifty.
Service: Same as every other hotel service for me. Since I normally just need their service for check in. As long as, I can check in smoothly and they don’t bother me during my stay or give me any of inconvenience, it’s pretty much top-rated service me. So yeah I’m asking for very little. So normally would pay attention to any details of a hotel service. I would only pin point if they fail to live up the bare minimum.
Conclusion: My thought? pretty much obvious, even if I have the money to free afford this kind of price I still wouldn’t go for it. There are hotel in Bukit Bintang with the same comfort level and very well located that cost a lot less. But it’s an awesome place if you get to stay for free. Then again any hotel 4-5 star hotel is an awesome place if it’s free. 😛
