As I travel quite often for work, I’m going to keep a record of all the hotels I’ve stayed in, to serve as a reminder of what works and what doesn’t. It’ll make future bookings much easier.
Location: Although located in Kuningan, getting to the office is relatively quick by car. Door to door transport time is shorter. It’s a better option than the shangrila. Offices surround the hotel so don’t expect to go anywhere once you return.
Room: Corner room. New and modern with a huge bathroom. The bed is heavenly. Westin never fails.
Gym: The treadmills and ellipticals overlook the sky (pollution rather). What I really like about Westin gym’s is that they have the TRX system and sufficient weight machines. Small space for free weights.
Breakfast: The place is so big that I got lost trying to find various counters. The spread is wide, with lots of fried food options (not ideal for breakfast) and the usual omellete and bread station. If you pick carefully, there are healthy options but you have to be diligent about your selections. I like to sit by the fresh juice station so it’s easy access to refills.
I selected their healthier options.
Notable items: Henshin, Japanese food on the 67th floor. I’ll be back for this again.
Beef short ribs
Henshin roll with prawn, foie gras, unagi.
Would I return? Yes. Maybe just for Henshin and the comfortable room. Westin never fails in Asia.
