Rated 4 out of 5 by Gmwaldron Great location in Berlin
The hotel is very well located. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the hotel is quiet despite being in the center of Berlin. I was very dissappointing that a hotel that I would expect caters to business travelers does not offer free Wifi in the rooms. Despite the purpose of my visit being leisure, I still needed to be connected for purposes of finding my way around Berlin.

being platinum member forget about this hotel if you are thinking that you are special. no no no. you are average costumer with any recognition for your loyalty. no upgrade, no bonuses. i read once again benefits i have and found that i can choose breakfast as welcome gift. well, reception didn't ask me about anything. hope they at least put points to my account

Rated 4 out of 5 by Luvtrvl Good Location Surrounded by Construction
Very nice hotel in shopping area of Berlin. Centrally located within walking distances of Brandenburg Gate, Checkpoint Charlie, Berlin Wall, Jewish Museum and Holocaust Memorial. Hotel is warm and well maintained with some old world charm. We stayed in junior suite and it was quite lovely and well-appointed. It doesn't appear hotel receives too many English-speaking patrons as few of the "behind the scenes" staff were comfortable speaking anything but German. Caution: spa services are somewhat lacking. Facials were "different" from anywhere I've been and not worth price. Daughter had "mani/pedi that took over two hours that did NOT include foot massage or nail polish. When notified front desk staff, they credited 50€ but still wasn't worth it! Massage by Johann was amazing! Food in hotel caters to Germans and is overpriced. All said and done, would stay again minus mani/pedi and facials, and would eat elsewhere.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DebbyL Comfortable, excellent location
The hotel is very well located.
Room is very quiet and comfortable.
Internet is paid extra and only allows 2 devices. We needed to connect another 2 and it was not possible.
Staff at the front desk extremely professional but there was no flexibility nor any effort to be kind.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Smartfoneaddict Great location & Ambiance
Great location, great lobby decor/ambiance and pretty good room comfort. A bit disappointed though: No coffee/tea in room; heavinly bed not as heavinly as elsewhere (particularly pillows); no Platinum room upgrade nor were we asked about our preferred Platinum guest amenity! :(.
(Ongoing construction on Friedrichstrasse and Unter Den Linden is a bit of a pain right now)

Rated 4 out of 5 by SooMoo Superior location in Berlin City Center
Located at Unter den Linden and Friedrichstraße. Easy walk to most locations of interest incl govt, excellent access to Berlin's great public transportation system.
Traditional German but modern style.
Ongoing underground construction not a problem except normal daytime working hours.
Not a good experience with bathroom servicing this time,
We'll be back in a week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pamela3901 Among the better world hotels
I've been a travel-writer for a couple of decades. The Sheraton Grand is right up there with the better world hotels - and I'm talking about the famous ones in Paris, New York and the like. Herr Concierge is amazing, the Sans Souci Suite is over the top, and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating. On top of it all, the location is perfect....so enjoy!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Charlie66 Westin Berlin
Room 177 attracted a 60 euro per day extra charge which was outrageous. Nothwithstanding that access involved changing floors twice the balcony was a joke looking at a wall and a car park and very noisy and full of kitchen smells.
Room itself was fine.
Asked manager for reduction and eventually had one days charge removed.

This had been a great stay and at great prices. I enjoyed the location as it is 2 blocks from the Brandenburg Gate and walking distance to many of the attractions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anon11 Great hotel, but no free wifi / overpriced breakfast
Hotel is high quality, however it is a huge shame that wifi is not free. Breakfast is overpriced (32 EUR). I would not stay in this hotel again unless wifi was free.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Georges64 Very strict check-in/out time policy
After having landed in Berlin quite early I wanted to check-in as early as possible. The staff was very kind but the check-in time policy was not flexible at all. I could get in to my room at 12.30 only after waiting 4 hours in the lobby. On the other other hand I got only one hour "extra" upon late checking out. The sauna and internet are also extras....

Rated 5 out of 5 by Murtron A Welcome at The Westin Grand, Berlin
This has been our third stay at The Westin Grand Berlin, and as before it didn't disappoint. All of the staff are helpful, polite and exhibit a great sense of humour while remaining professional at all times. The room was excellent as always, and the air conditioning was a very welcome relief from the 32c temperatures at the time. Our only minor disappointment was that the restaurant and snack menus were either too complicated, or lacked the "local" aspect to the food in Berlin. I couldn't help feeling that the hotel was missing out with guests choosing to eat at other local restaurants, offering true local fare at a reasonable price. It is only a suggestion, but I feel the restaurant could benefit from a "Berliner Cuisine" menu? They have Currywurst (a local delicacy) however most do not want it with a glass of champagne. I understand that the restaurant wishes to maintain a certain standard, and would suggest this menu be offered at the bar or terrace? On all of our visits, it has struck us as odd, that the Westin Berlin has 2 Grand Pianos (1 in the main bar area, and one in the first floor lobby). Neither of these beautiful instruments has ever been played during any of our stays!! It seems like such a shame, when they would provide a nice dimension to the ambiance of the hotel.

Very clean room with what would have been nice views if it wasn't for the construction. Good but small gym. OK bar. Great staff who brought ice to the room, went to shut down a party next door that didn't stop despite of me going to the door. Very helpful concierge. Only con I can think of we're the beds: too soft and caused back pain. Great location.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LauSer central location
the only point to make is about room 211 I occupied. A deluxe city view had been reserved. unfortunately, I faced a wall with no view whatsoever. In addition the room is located right above the goods receiving area and I was woken up every morning by the noise even though you have doubleglazing.
the bar, breakfast and room service were all OK.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BBri Terrific location and great service
We would strongly recommend staying at the Westin Grand given its central location and the attentiveness of the staff, especially the concierge personal. Our only complaint would be that there was not free wi fi in the lobby unlike other Starwood Hotels ie Prague and Toronto.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dennis4529 great place to stay in the heart of "east" Berlin
The Westin Grand is in an excellent location to see the sites of "east" Berlin. It is close to Museum Island, Berliner Domer, Brandenburg Gate & the Memorial to Murdered Jews of Europe. The rooms are comfortable & elegant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Barb45 Beautiful hotel
Concierge staff was very helpful. Restaurant staff friendly; food good. Close to shops, restaurants, historic sites. The only complaint was that I found the room a bit warm until I opened the window. The lobby was beautiful, with a sweeping staircase. No hesitation to recommend this hotel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Luci Generally great but no air humidifier
I like the hotel and I also think the employees are friendly, responsive and attentive. The only issue I have is that air in the rooms is too dry. Skin and hair suffer from it and either you make sure that enough air humidifier are available (which was not the case last week) or you need to adjust the air condition in general.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Patricia8 excellent location
We stayed here for 4 days in March 2014. I am used to spending time in the Westin in Dublin and love its fires and atrium bar. I missed the fires and the lounge is not as luxurious as the atrium at the Dublin Westin. It was also very expensive to have a drink here. Otherwise we were very happy with our stay here.

Nice rooms with excellent bath but no ice (I know it's it Europe but a lot of us ice-loving Americans stay there!). Central location was nice but there was a huge construction project going on next to the hotel so walking was kinda iffy but the noise was not a problem once inside the room. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Wonderful relaxed stay in Berlin's centrally located hotel.
Despite roadworks outside on the Friedrichstr. there was little noise on the 4th floor this night.
Probably my 20th stay in this hotel over the years and never really anything to complain about.
Things run as they should so full marks...keep the standard :)

Very nice hotel. but we unfortunately had the room on the 3 rd floor over looking the construction site . They made a lot of noise trying to drill a cylinder into the earth. I had reserved the room over 2 months ago. One would think they would make arrangements, so no body use that room.
Otherwise very nice hotel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by meisterwatt Great facilities
The hotel has amazing facilities (gym, pool, lounges). My only complaint was the the rooms were incredibly warm and there was no way to use the air conditioning to cool it down. I tried the window but that was too loud. Other guests in my group also mention the heat!
Otherwise, the hotel was perfect.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Nullermand This hotel has a good location
The hotel has a good location in Berlin. But it is not good enough that the hotel does not have a lounge for Platinum members. It is simply to bad. AND that we need to pay for getting breakfast is also to bad.

The Westin Berlin is a MUST. It is in a perfect location, you can easily walk to main sights or access public transportation steps away from hotel. THE STAFF IS WONDERFUL, they make you feel at home upon entering hotel. We have stayed there twice and will visit again soon...breakfasts are delicious too!
