The Westin Warsaw
Fine hotel in the heart of Warsaw
I had a pleasant short stay at the Westin last year in December. The Westin Warsaw hotel is very modern looking, with tastefully designed lobbies and rooms. It is located in a quiiet area very near the center of the city, the railstation and the Palace of Culture and Science is very near. The staff was very polite, easy and quick check in/check out procedure. The taxis usually have to be reserved beforehand, so I had a very good support with that having in mind the increased traffic during December holidays. This hotel has all the pluses except for the extra charged Internet which is also very expensive. My room was on the 10th floor, had fabulous views of the city, which was great!
Unique Quality: The elevators has illuminated lights on the window glass and has a spectacular view over Warsaw at night.
Business hotel near Central Station
I booked my hotel in Warsaw several months ago, at the great rate of $75 per night on Orbitz, when I thought we would be doing a day trip or two from Warsaw so I booked a hotel near the Central Station. Turns out that we didn't take any day trips but the location wasn't terribly inconvenient as we spent much of our time in Warsaw further afield and needed to take buses and trams anyway.
We walked from the Central Station to the hotel, 10+ minutes on foot, or you can connect with a tram that runs down the center of al. Jana Pawla II. We also walked to Old Town our 1st night in town but it was at least 15-20 minutes on foot.
Unique Quality: The Westin in Warsaw is a typical Westin, designed primarily for the business traveler, it has a desk in the room with an internet connection, modern furniture and expense account breakfasts which at 99zl ($30US) was easy for us to pass up. The Westin chain has heavenly beds, extremely comfortable, and heavenly showers, always with great water pressure and plenty of hot water.
Our bathroom was very nice, with both a bathtub and a shower, all the necessary toiletries-shampoo, conditioner, bath gel and lotion along with groovy leaf shaped soap. There was a hair dryer in the closet and the towels were nice and fluffy.
The room had a minibar which we couldn't open, presumably because we didn't leave a credit card number, tea and coffee service and an in room safe. The flat screen TV had a bunch of channels in different languages, including HBO.
Directions: 10 minute walk from Central Station, 2km from Old Town
Hotel with an amazing architecture
I have only spent a night here. In general, this is a very good hotel, my room was very comfortable, great bed and nice bathroom...
Even if the view from the room was on one of the main busy streets, it was amazingly quiet!
The restaurant was ok, as most hotel restaurant, it was a bit pricey, the staff was pretty cold but at least the food was good!
The breakfast buffet was quite expensive as well (25€) but it was definitely worth it...
On the downside:
- the Internet connection, again quite expensive and no wireless, only a wired connection!
- the time to check in/out
Unique Quality: The lift!! Quite surprising, in an external glass tower, check the picture on their website!
Directions: In the business center of the city...
A First Class Hotel In Warsaw
I stayed at this Westin, over some beautiful fall days, due to business travel. I often stay at Westin’s in the USA, and I am a gold member of the Starwood club, but I was somewhat surprised when our local sales representative booked me into the one in Warsaw.
I found the staff, at this modern 20-storey hotel to be excellent, meeting or exceeding standards that I am comfortable with back home. They are genuinely friendly, helpful, and enthusiastic. For example, my Sunday tour bus was late and, without my asking for their assistance, the front desk called them up and then provided me an update and expected arrival time of the van. I was impressed!
The hotel is beautifully designed, relatively new and centrally located near the center of the city. The elevator ride gives one an excellent partial view of the city and the current weather conditions! And like in their other locations, their famous Heavenly Bed continued to live up to its name. And, especially for a business traveler, there were other nice touches like excellent lighting at the desk and over the bed, high speed internet connectivity, and good television reception with a number of English speaking channels.
A fluffy robe was laid out on my bed when I arrived and the bathroom was not cramped. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and you will too.
Unique Quality: Great view, heavenly bed (best in the world I think), nice ambience, great service, good English skills.
Directions: Find Jerozolimskie street and then find the Central Railway Station. Turn onto Aleja Jana Pawła II, cross a few traffic lights and you will see the Westin Warsaw hotel.

A unique thing is that the hotel is operating although it hasn't been officially open and the 'categorization process' has not been finnished yet - they can't tell whether it is a 4* or 5* place :-)
