Editorial review:

The staff gets high praise for their exquisite service. The breakfast buffets are amazing and are served in a stained-glass dining room. It's close to the main sights and has spacious, attractive rooms, some of which have breathtaking views of the Arno and Tuscan hills. Rooms on upper floors are recommended so as to avoid the noisy streets.

                          Location

                          Room was not as described in web --should have complained

                        • Family with children
                          6.2

                          Its location is convenient and serves as the meeting point for the conference spouse program.

                          5.8

                          The A/C was off and the room was too warmWhen openning the windows a lot of mosquitos came in. It was a very bad experience with so many mosquito bites.

                        • Couple
                          8.2

                          Its quiet and clean for such a big hotel.

                          The breakfast was very expensive. When you only want some fruit salad, yoghurt, orange juice and coffee then forty euros is a waste of money.

                          An ok hotel, not what you are expecting from a Westin hotel... the only thing that really mentions a Westin is the price ...

                          Even that you are paying a nice amount of $$, anything you are asking for beside of your bad will be an extra, with an outrages price... parking is 40 Euro per night, a double espresso 10...
