Rated 5 out of 5 by Club2430 Westin Berlin (alternative Club Lounge)
In response to Anonymous (November 22) about the non existent Club Lounge.
SPG are my primary hotel chain and I firmly believe in a 2 way relationship between service provider/guest.
I may it my business to get to know GM and staff because the positive interaction is the only way any hotel really knows what their guests really need.
In my case, GM's at the hotels I regularly visit know of my preferences and a Club Lounge is indeed very high. You are right, the Berlin hotel has no Club Lounge but the staff made an alternative solution very possible and extremely workable.
I may sometimes be demanding, but I make sure to create positive interaction with management and the outcomes are that the SPG hotels just get better and better after each visit...
(and no I do not work for Westin / SPG or any associated companies)

My first time at the Westin Grand but it won't be my last. Comfortable, spacious rooms and excellent service especially from the concierges. Good breakfast. I liked the location although there was a lot of construction going on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Intern62 Location and staff make this hotel.
We loved the central location of this hotel in Mitte. We were ten minutes away from the Brandenberg Gate and the Tiergarten. The staff was excellent especially for English speaking visitors whose German is limited. They were consistently helpful and knowledgeable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Club2430 Another superb Westin
A great hotel, with superb staff, led by a fabulously open and visible management team. This is my second visit to this hotel in 2013 and I can honestly say, this property just shot up to my equal first favourite Westin hotel.
For me, what makes a perfect hotel:
2. comfortable (heavenly bed)
3. polite (non gum chewing) staff who show you are special
4. high standards of food
5. able to deal with fussy guests (me)
6. good internet connections
7. executive lounge, which this hotel does not have, but an alternative was arranged
8. Central city location so places I need to go can be accessed on foot
9. Acceptable / fair room rates
10. when "challenges" occur, hotel are able to find immediate solutions. The Westin Berlin scored 100% in all of the above. Can not recommend this hotel highly enough..

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dokester Great Hotel Perfectly Situated in Berlin
The Westin Grand is perfect in so many ways. The staff and facilities are top-notch. The one exception is the absence of a Club Lounge or place to do internet work and relax. The wifi is fine, although you have to sign in again and again and again. And the breakfast is absurdly priced, but exceptional. In all, I couldn't imagine staying elsewhere -- and I did go into several hotels to compare.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Halina Hotel with a character and charm
Our stay was excellent.
There has been some miscommunication about room change with the receptionist but the manager on duty on the evening of August 31 solved the problem immediately to our full satisfaction.
I would like to compliment him for his professional and customer satisfaction attitude.
The hotel restaurant and lounge menu and the food was excellent. We really liked that although the hotel serves an international profile of guests, the restaurant menu features typical German dishes.

This Hotel is the very best Westin that we have stayed at. The staff are excellent, the facility is in excellent shape. It was way beyond our expectation and made the overall stay a memorable experience in Berlin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TOBRAY4 Excellent in every respect
Room was clean, spacious and comfortable. The staff was cordial and helpful. I had an issue with transfer arrangements, not connected with the Hotel, that was ultimately resolved as a result of a very informed and helpful hotel representative at the Business office. As someone unfamiliar with the language, this assistance was invaluable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bingodog Perfect location, good services
The Westin Grand's position is fantastic, right in the middle of Berlin, close to many of the highlights of the city, and in a perfect position for public transport. Getting to and from the airport is very easy with the TXL bus which runs every 5-10 minutes and stops around the corner from the hotel.
Breakfast is generous and very good. As a SPG Platinum I enjoyed free continental breakfast which consists of a huge selection from the buffet - unless you really crave for made to order eggs, there's no need to upgrade the breakfast to the full one.
I was upgraded to a junior suite with garden view. It was a very comfortable room, large and quiet. The only remark is that there is no door between the living room and the sleeping room, so you can't use the living room as a separate space if someone is sleeping.
The gym is well equipped and the swimming pool is quite nice. It's round, so not really optimal for lap swimming, but enough to provide some comfort after working out or after a long day out. Be careful because the floor around the pool gets REALLY slippery, that is something the hotel should address because in my opinion it can be quite dangerous.
The hotel offers bicycles for rent. The possibility to rent the bikes at the hotel is very handy, but rather expensive compared to other outlets. The bikes are ok, but some are missing lights or locks, so there's room for improvement. However, I found it a good service from the hotel and I was glad I could rent the bikes directly there.
Check-in and check-out was fast and efficient, and in general all the staff was polite and efficient.

This hotel is a perfect spot to stay in Berlin in terms of atmosphere, service and location. The wonderful staff is one of the strengths of the Westin Grand. The breakfast buffet is a must-see and must-taste. I already am a constant guest and will be for my further Berlin stays.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tripp3 Optimal choice for first stay in Berlin. After four days in Berlin, we would still choose the Westin Grand over other alternative hotels.
We have never visited Berlin. The concierge desk and communications office provided a lot of valuable information and assistance for a couple that had never visited Berlin.
