A hotel's stars, and its price set expectations. 5 stars is a bit intangible-does anyone really know, country by country the difference between 4 and 5 stars? £400 a night does raise expectations and, aside from an undeniably near perfect location, the Westin doesn't really deliver.
Specific concerns included cleaning, the room smelt musty and, even after a linen change, continued to do so. The previous occupant's snacks in the minibar was an oversight.
The room was reasonably sized, the beds comfortable and the bathroom well equipped.
No breakfast included at the price was a surprise. The atrium café somewhat overpriced.
The "save the planet" (tiny refund for no cleaning) deal is pointless, you get the price of the coffee which you don't get replaced in the room.
There is a small gym.
Conclusion, great location and well worth £200 B&B - if only....
