I checked into the Westin hotel for 4 days.
On the first afternoon, it took me 15 minutes to track down anyone who could provide me with a cup of tea- not good.
The following night I woke up itching all over- the bedclothes were like sleeping on razer blades and induced a rash all over my body.
I asked the following day for my bedclothes to be changed but this was not done.
I had to call again and ask for this again. A lady arrived to change my bedclothes but I do not know whethter I willl get any sleep tonight.
In addition, the restaurant provides over-salted and inedible food at extortionately high prices. I will not be returning.
Perfect business hotel in Zagreb: recently renovated (it was previously the Intecontinental, in dire need of refurbishment), rooms remain small but with nice furniture and confortable bed. The pool strange design is inherited from the old hotel, but they upgraded the chairs and surroundings. Location is convenient, 10 minutes walk from city center. Breakfast is of high quality.
I had some surprise with the taxi they called, but I understand now that those are the normal prices (taxis in Zagreb are very expensive). Still, the hotel was very helpful.
Unique Quality: Simply a good combination of qualities expected for that price of a business hotel.
Well, look ... this is not my favorite kind of hotel; it's a perfect one but the style is quite old.
Free access to internet with your own laptop or hotel fixed PCs is an interesting feature for business travellers, but also for holiday weather check.
Restaurant has not been tried but when I asked for a sandwich at bar ... we could have eaten in 3-4 persons .... it was BIIIIIIIIIIIIIIG and delicious !!!
Breakfast good with some minor issues trying to grab waiter attention for the coffee cup refilling :-)
Unique Quality: Bed super-super ... anyhow, somebody to explain them in summer you can remove some centimeters of blankets :-)
And the indoor pool of course !!!!!!!!!!
Directions: 10 minutes walking from downtown, ideal and quiet position.

I have to attend some meetings in Zagreb and will be staying at the Westin Hotel. Does anyone know of any dry-cleaners or laundries around there? (Hotel laundry service is SUPER expensive, as you know). Also, anything interesting to visit and/or shopping within walking distance (will have at most an afternoon free).
Zagreb downtown (shopping area) is at the walking distance from the Westin.
Almost all Zagreb attractions are in that Donji grad district. Also, the oldest parts of the city, Kaptol with the Cathedral, and medieval Gornji grad are not far away.
Here's a very informative site for visitors:
Don't know what you're looking for, but for some genuine/hand made/home made/natural Croatian products, visit the shop in Pod Zidom Street (right next to the main, Ban Jelaclic square). The shop is called Natura Croatica.
There's a of bunch dry cleaning businesses in down town area. Maybe you could ask at the tourist office for the handiest one. Tourist office is on the main square (you can get free tourist info and map with attractions there too). Frankly, the only laundry service I know about is the one in Draskoviceva Street, next to Sheraton hotel, in down town area too, but not exactly next to the your hotel.
Thanks so much for the great tips! I've written them down and am browsing the websites today.
