Rated 5 out of 5 by Neoteros A safe port in Ningbo
I spent just one night at The Westin Ningbo and I only wish I had to stay longer in this nice property, which is right in the center of this pretty city.
I cannot report any true weaknesses as I really enjoyed everything: front desk, room and public areas decor, food quality at breakfast or at the club lounge, the impressive view from my room at the top floor.
To be strongly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jmcn106 Great Experience
I stayed at the Westin Ningbo in March and loved my stay. They upgraded me to a Deluxe Suite and i didn't want to leave. The room was amazing and i felt right at home. Their gym is great and had exactly the machines i needed. The only thing i would improve is the restaurant. Please include more western food choices.

I would not recommend this hotel if you need to use the Internet. Connection is slow and drops frequently, even after I got an extra router to my room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TOMF001 Excellent hotel and service
After travelled three cities in one day, I decided to check in at executive lounge to speed up the process. Katrina and Alisa took care of me and get check in done very quickly, the hotel was full in that evening so was executive lounge, both girls were very attentive and with smile on their faces as always.
The room is clean, a free bottle of red wine and cookies were offered, alone with a welcome note addressed to my last night – what a nice touch!
The Westin Nangbo definitely becomes my first choice of hotel in Nangbo.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SalB2015 2 Night Stay
Great location by the park and river with many choices in restaurants and night life. The room was clean and the showers are amazing. Only complaint I made on my exit is that the gym is so hot it feels like a sauna and it's uncomfortable for physical exercise. I used the Gym three times and all three times it was a sauna - I'm not kidding. No AC at all in the gym. Not a great experience. Breakfast choices were absolutely delightful. I did not get a change everything to enjoy lunch or dinner in the Hotel due to Business meals outside of the hotel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ivan2004 Super service in Club Lounge
kind smile and comfortable service in 39th floor whatever at the night or breakfast.
There is a big surprise to have one bottle of red wine in the room plus welcome fruits and snacks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MarcP Lack of attention to detail... or anything for that matter
They failed to use the SPG number I gave them upon checking in. They thought it necessary to issue me a new SPG number and failed to even load this stay to it. A completely empty card that they issued to me. I stayed at this hotel SEPTEMBER 22 - 30... NOT 22-23.
I called this hotel two times and the super-attentive front desk people at Sheraton Ningbo (another Starwood hotel) even did me the honor of calling on my behalf during my stay there. I finally get someone on the phone and they assure me this stay will be fixed...only to find out that it was only added as a ONE DAY STAY. How hard is it to just add the dates you have on your computer system to this system the way you tell me you are going to?
Staff Responsiveness gets 2 stars because I had to take a cold shower after traveling 20+ hours, made a call to the front desk and was told someone will come right up and look at it. I waited thirty minutes and nobody came. I gave up and just took a shower. Stopped by the front desk in the morning and complained about that. I was assured someone will go right up and take care of it. Returned from work nine hours later and still no hot water. I complain again to the manager on duty and they quickly upgraded my room.
Quality of Sleep - 4 stars. Beds, Bedding and Pillows are great.
Facilities - 3 stars. Bar area is great. Could easily be 5 out of 5 stars if they would keep an eye on the stock and not allow it to run out of liquor for one of there signature cocktails. And not be restocked in a week. The other problem was the fact I was hit on by a service person there 3 times in one night. She was a very attractive young lady but, I find that a bit odd for any country I am traveling in, business or otherwise. I do not appreciate it at all.
I am not an unreasonable person, I only expect to receive the service in which I am being told to expect. When something doesn't happen the way it is being told to me... by management, this is where I become agitated.
