Rated 3 out of 5 by Virgile Not the usual Westin - acceptable
If you stayed at Westin Guangzhou or Westin Shenzhen or Westin Taipei Seoul /Shanghai, you will be disapointed. The hotel conditions are not the same level. Many things in the room was done so so...just as it was quickly done. Many marks of the constructions on the door, wall,.the TV very small.at the Gym, the TV in the machine ONLY Chinese chanels The locker rool and shower area of the gym is really really bad. Not Westin Style. some of the staff are nice but most of the time, I feel they were kind of unconfortable. I dont know why.The upgrade was just so so regarding my platinium status. Otherwise, the lounge is correct. Conclusion : OK Hotel but not GREAT. They do the minium Westin service..

It was so nice to have some of our western culture in china. the food was wonderful. I LOVED getting an omlett for breakfast, and other great things of what we love. Dont get me wrong, the new culture was great to experience, but at the end of the day it was nice to see a bit of home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Subow A excellent Hotel located on Financial District
We stayed 1 night with my family at this Hotel.
Although this hotel seems to be more suitable for Business traveler, but we were still satisfied with everything here.
Great location on Financial District, and the staff were very friendly and helpful, especially Mr.Vincent Qu who serves in front desk, I really appreciated for his kindly help to meet my needs when I check-in.
BTW, the breakfast(Brunch) is also great,
it was awarded for consecutive 6 years.
In overall, we had a great stay in this hotel,
and it was really a great deal if you book a reservation during the weekend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Expat97 Not up to usual Westin atandards
Having stayed at the Westin Chosun in Seoul recently, it was noticeable that the Westin Beijing Financial Street is below par - from the quality of service to the level of cleanliness. It is not a bad hotel, just not as good as it could or should be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Leon76 Westin Beijing Financial Street provides a unique experience
For me this has been a great experience that started even before reaching the hotel , with the shuttle service provided to pick me at the airport. The warm welcome the staff provided upon arrival and the SPG Gold upgrade were great. The breakfast is also really good.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ectanz Not Provided Desired Despite Reservation Confirmation
Was disappointed when arrived late in the night just to realised that the desired non-smoking room with King Size bed that was confirmed through SPG reservation was not reserved.
Instead was given a room with 2 Super Single beds in a supposedly non-smoking floor. However, throughout the 2 nights stay, there was the smell of cigarette smoke in the air probably from other guest smoking in the their rooms.
I would expect that a confirmed prepaid booking through the SPG website would mean that the hotel would have reserved the type of room that was booked as even when there is a no show, the rate will be charged to my credit card. Such a incident showed that the hotel does put the guest needs upfront and it brings no meaning to the SPG membership.

This is very nice business hotel. Conveniently located to financial district, modern, clean facility, decent food. The only negative is the extremely slow wifi which borders on the unusable. For a business hotel, that is unacceptable.

The hotel is located in the heart of Beijing Finance Street with easy access to shopping mall and a variety of restaurants.
If the hotel can install air filters to provide cleaner air to the guests within the building given the air pollution problem in Beijing, it will definitely attract more guests and be great value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ECEJon Wonderful short family stay
We arrived at the hotel early (around 12), 3 hours before the normal checkin time. And the room was ready and we were given a fantastic 2-bed suite. Perfect for our family of 4 with 2 boys.
Everything we need from a hotel room is there, and to be specific, we had what we didn't expect as well. A full-functioning Massage chair; a small traditional Chinese tea serving set.... Absolutely marvellous!
We had snack in the restaurant and the Lounge, the service and professionaliam from the staff are top-notch.
We swam in the pool with our two boys and there is a good sized pool for young children next to the main pool.
It was a rather short stay and we definately will come back for longer!
One tiny point for improvement, no fresh squeezed juice left when we were having breakfast and we got there about 9.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Bowtie88 Unprofessional staff
I have stayed in this hotel for quite a few times, mainly because I like the location and facilities in the hotel. Unfortunately, service provided by hotel staff was much below expectations. I mentioned during this stay that I'm a platinum member and the front desk person looked at me as though he did not know what I meant. The point is, I did not feel appreciated as a platinum member throughout my stay. My room was situated right next to the elevator and the noise kept me up at night. Further, another incident revealed the unprofessional behavior of another hotel staff. I inquired about the cost for airport transportation service and the response was "seventy five RMB". Knowing that it could not be correct, I asked the question again in Mandarin; at a minimum, I got an answer that seemed correct (750RMB). As soon as I turned around, I overheard this staff laughing at my mandarin. Sadly, I wonder who should be laughing at who. Perhaps another point I should make is that I took the time to complete the online survey during past stays and shared similar examples of the unprofessional attitude of some hotel staff and did not receive any follow-up from the hotel. This undoubtedly reflects poorly on the hotel management as well. Thanks for the opportunity to provide feedback.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BeijingShuttle Certain areas need refurbishment
The hotel is good but a few areas can be improved.
The hotel is showing is wear and tear I certain areas that need attention. For example, the leather on the desk chairs are cracked and the writing pad on the desk is the same condition. At the pool, there are drains and the railing that are rusted.
The services are good but during high peak check in time, there need to be a more staff.
The Westin workout charges for rental which should be complimentary like other hotels I have stayed at.
The locker area in the gym is too small, should revamp to keep it updated.

I always enjoy my stay in Westin, especially the one in Beijing financial street.
Their staffs are so friendly and very helpful.
You can always see smiles on their faces, which are really making my whole stay as comfortable as home.
I would like to thank the front desk staffs, great service, as a gold card member, they can always recognise me and really take care of all my needs. They are very efficient when I check in. Look forward to my next stay soon.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anna567 The hotel staff lacks standards in cleanliness
I am very disgusted with the way the hotel staff handles the cleanliness and hygiene of the food at breakfast. The chef dropped the dumpling on the dirty table top and picked it up with his bare hands, threw it into the bowl and served it to me. This appears to me as a standard of the local chinese hotel and not an international hotel chain. I will never stay in this hotel for any future trips. There are other disappointing observations but I shall not elaborate further. I will also not recommend this hotel to anyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Expat66 Good stay with a couple of issues
I have stayed at the Westin Financial several times. I am generally impressed with the staff and the facility. It has been a year since my last stay at the Westin Financial. I have two complaints related to my recent two-night stay in October.
The breakfast service was not able to keep up with the volume of customers. The large number of tour groups staying at this hotel creates a more chaotic atmosphere. The buffet area was crowded, popular dishes were quickly depleted and it was difficult to get coffee refills. I usually look forward to the breakfast buffet but this was not an enjoyable experience.
My second complaint is due to a simple mistake. I noticed on my SPG account that I was credited with having a bonus drink upon check in. I did not have a drink and it is my habit to ask for the 250 points instead. This is not a big deal, but I would appreciate if I could be credited with the 250 points.
Beyond this, our group held a small seminar at the hotel and I would like to give credit where credit is due: the seminar room, equipment and the catering was very good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kathyg70 Jewel restaurant
Having flown all night we were interested in having some dinner at the hotel because of the convenience. The Jewel restaurant is their high end one...boy is it expensive! We ordered some sweet and sour soup with a vegetable appetizer and a tofu appetizer. My husband hand the shrimp dinner with fried rice. We had some a small bottle of Chinese hot wine for the four of us and the bill was over $175.00!
Plus the lighting is dim so reading the small print menu with grey writing is very difficult to see.
It was all very tasty, but very overpriced!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Upset1 Hotel needs better maintenance and housekeeping
The shower faucet is not flexible and ended up with water seeping into the bathroom, or the guest needs to stand in odd position. Also, the hose is leaking.
Secondly, one of the drinking water cap was already opened, and there was only a few pieces of tissue in the box.
