Nice hotel and good location. The staff did not have our room ready upon our late arrival which was irritating given the long international flight, but they did their best to correct the situation. Otherwise, it was a nice stay.

Rated 4 out of 5 by gita Great location
The location is great. You are close to all the attractions, shopping and train. You can pretty much walk to everything. The lobby and the hotel is very nice. What i did not like was the lack of upgrade we got as a Gold member.

Experience certainly to repeat

Rated 2 out of 5 by IRELANDSMAN DULL -DREARY
Recently had a 5 night stay in what must be one of the dullest -dreariest hotels in my life i have ever stayed in. It is so unfortunate that the hotel used so much artificial lighting when fotos were being taken for its website which gives a very different perspective to the real hotel on entering. The carpets in the general areas and corridors are badly stained. Dark Brown--and Cream are the main colours internally. Right now in Berlin -major street construction is talking place -so request an inside room. Our A/C did not work--reported 3 times to Service Express--we finally gave up--it was not fixed. Breakfast is a nightmare ---with so many people trying to enjoy really good food. Sadly this hotel has no EXECUTIVE LOUNGE---hence i would not return. In our bedroom --we had to have lights on all the time as it was so dark--no bedside clocks are in the rooms. If u are feeling depressed and need a break --this is NOT a hotel to go to. How could any General Manager permit such a hotel to convey such sadness based on the colours and total lack of lighting internally.. ..

Rated 5 out of 5 by PrimeMinister80 A hotel good to its guests
I was satisfied with the service of the hotel. It is compatible with its 5-star hotel status. The hotel did not take advantages of its guests and genuinely treated its quests in the best way it could.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ra68 Lovely hotel, great location.
I had a very comfortable Garden room which was nice and quiet. The staff were friendly, efficient and courteous. I was disappointed that the Westin does not offer complimentary wifi to its guests.

Very nice and cozy hotel.
Excellent breakfast and a perfect location for shopping lovers. The concierge team was also very friendly and helpful. Front desk team were polite, yet slightly too rigid.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AmyK A smart hotel with a central location
The rooms lived up to the high standard I always expect from a Westin and the location in the city is very close to all the major sights. The gym and pool are also great for fitness and relaxing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ConditionOne Central location for tourists
The Westin has a great location in Berlin for a tourist. It’s near a subway station, and within walking distance of many attractions such as the Museum Island and right next to many stores such as Galeries Lafayette. When I arrived in the morning via a 20 Euro cab ride from TXL, I was told that my room wasn’t available yet, but I would be called as soon as it was ready. I never received a phone call. When I returned to the hotel 6 hours later, I was upgraded to a junior suite as a Platinum member.
My junior suite was large (as large as some other one bedroom suites I’ve been in) and clean, with standard Westin amenities. My room had two singles that you can push together to make a King, but you there are two duvets on each single. So essentially you’re still stuck with two beds. The bathtub shower half one of those half-enclosed glass enclosures, which means water gets all over the place while you’re showering. A bottle of free water was supplied in my room.
The breakfast buffet was substantial, and had pretty much anything you needed. Will definitely be returning to this property soon!

Rated 4 out of 5 by santri1969 Very central to Berlin's attractions
I stayed a couple of times at the Berlin Grand - was upgraded all the times, staff was good, and it is a very central location from where I had good access to most of Berlin's attractions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by traveldoctors Beautiful
A friend and I had the opportunity to stay at the Westin Grand on Friedrichstrasse on a quick jaunt to Berlin. While the location is in close proximity to many tourist sites, it was pretty dead especially in comparison to Kreuzberg or Alexanderplatz. Most shops and restaurants in the area are not open on Sundays which is a problem when you're only there for the weekend.
In terms of the room, it was fairly comfortable. The beds are soft, which can be good or bad depending on your preference (i felt as though the bed was trying to swallow me alive). The walls are thin so you can hear your neighbors talking well into the night.
Cleanliness was marred by a stained towel, but was otherwise satisfactory. Additionally we were only provided with one bathrobe as opposed to the usual two.
We did not take advantage of the spa or fitness facilities largely due to time constraints but also the spa prices were astronomical in comparison to American hotel spas.
Service was the highlight of our stay; we were greeted by friendly and helpful hotel staff who forgave our stilted German and spoke excellent English.

check in most unwelcoming. Beds not very comfortable and pillows worst ever. If they want to improve should take brussels sheraton as example. Food in bar very eccentric. Good location.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sami198 Old times never cames back
Unfourtunalelly I have a very discordant position to this hotel, about over 25 stays here since 2001.
There was a big recunstruction at 2007: the large restaurant has gone away with his fantastic price/quality relation f.ex.the great wine list has gone away to Leipzig Westin, so the waiter me told later.
You can"t imagine, that there were today a lot of other kind buisness affair romes .But this was a evantually economic desions, bad for our costumers.
The space where
the atriumis today, was much larger,n all was todally great, now there is nothing for a reclamation, but I remember the good old times...
The breakfeast I have enjoyed over all restaurants in the starwood groups is the best even in this days, but the price has terriibly rised over the hill !
The old stuff, who nows me,is the reason,I will come back, is fantasic !!!!
One good point is in the idoor-pool,who is a separat sauna for woman and men, what is normal in finland but not in germany.
The security can been better, like in other hotels of this group: today it has been a MUST to go with the lift only with yours hotel card
The blog will appear, so I hope, not like the review,i write about the Sheraton Offenbach this october,where was amoung of critisme.
