Architecture buffs in search of comfort and convenience are treated to the best of both worlds at the Westin Valencia, a 135-room property with multiple eateries, a spa and conference facilities located just a stone’s throw from the city center. The property offers the Westin’s signature luxuries, like its Heavenly Bed, as well as extras like its very own sushi restaurant, Komori, and a swishy bar, H-Club, perfect for aspiring night owls.
In the Area
Graceful, sunny Valencia, Spain’s third largest city, is known for its art, architecture and ability to stay up late. A 15-minute walk from Valencia’s old town, the Westin is a great jumping off point for visits to city sights like the 13th-century cathedral, the vibrant central market, or the Silk Exchange, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Guests with a rental car can take advantage of coastal Spain’s natural beauty, with visits to the Albufera Nature Park, noted for its many species of birds and its trails. A meal of authentic paella prepared at a beachside cafe is a must.
How to Get There
Westin is a favourite with us and we were not disappointed. Great location 5 min steady walk to city centre. Hotel garden is amazing for drinks or dinner. We arrived Sun afternoon to be greeted with a wonderful singer in the gardens. Service Food and Rooms excellent. Staff all friendly. Big thank you to Westin team.
Without fail one of the best hotels we have stayed in ,in spain spotlessly clean,great staff and the food really delicious,with it being so warm if you like to walk ,it would take around ten minuits to walk to the city center but taxis are so cheap why wear yourself out,the hotel has a very pleasant sitting out area with trees and flower beds and a small.fountain,the food is really presented well and the menu is quite varied all the staff speak english and are very jovial and seem to like a bit of banter this was a very enjoyable,and relaxing stay ,
We stayed here for four nights and loved the location, the premises, our huge room (we got an upgrade) and the lovely breakfast buffet.
What was a bit disappointing was that not all the hotel staff were Westin standard. When we checked in, we went to the elite checkin desk (since my husband is a platinum member). The two ladies behind the desk were lost in checking something, didn’t even bother to look up but a third colleague at another desk asked us to come over. This third colleague appeared to be new and fumbled a bit through the reservation. My husband didn’t get a “thank you for your loyalty” which is quite usual in most Marriott Bonvoy hotels (I am a lifetime gold member and always greeted that way). We also had to remind the lady at checkin that as a platinum member, he would normally get free breakfast as one of the options (she was busy telling us what breakfast would cost..).
We had dinner at the hotel bar the first night and as mentioned in one of the reviews here, service was extremely slow and we had to actually stop the staff several times to ensure we got something.
The breakfast staff on the first morning were so professional, competent, quick and friendly that I even tweeted about it. Unfortunately there was a change in team the next day and one of the service staff with the coffee was actually quite sullen and very inattentive. A real pity.
However the housekeeping staff whom we passed on the floors were very friendly and always greeted us with a smile.
As said earlier, we loved the location, ambience and decor of the hotel. Hope the staff improves because we plan to come back to Valencia.
