Rated 3 out of 5 by Jorge Worst than expected
the staff at reception is awful, they all look mad and upset, and when you ask for something they seem to have a problem. Even at check out I still have to handle with the troubles. The promise to send me my invoice and after 3 days, they have not send it. On top of that and once I called them they asked me to send information such as tax ID that already had, my company is a regular customer of that hotel. Esmeralda.Lopez@westin.com wasnot helpful at all. all other services such as valet parking and restaurant are very nice friendly staff. front desk should learn from them. thank you.

Rated 3 out of 5 by EverywhereGuy Fantastic Looking Hotel...Without the Service to Match
The best part of the hotel will be your room. A comfortable bed, as expected, with a nice sitting area, ample storage, and a very inviting stand-up shower. In fact, the entire bathroom is very well done in white marble with a wall-to-wall mirror. No complaints.
Now the knocks: The front desk staff struggle. Check-in took 20 minutes for a pre-reserved room. Suggestions for restaurants also went unfulfilled as they pushed the hotel's offering.
The second problem came from billing. My room bill was not on letterhead and no where did it say Westin on it. All the line items on the bill are cryptic statements that my company accounting department couldn't figure out. While this may sound trivial, it is a pain.
Additionally, they don't recognize SPG elite status very well. They made no mention of it. Though I am an elite SPG member, I was charged a 50% surcharge for checking in before the 2pm check-in time (beware!). In fact, I was charged a 50% surcharge on each day of my stay for checking in "too early." Since the bill is near impossible to decipher, you must be very aware of what your total should be to avoid getting caught in their scam.
I was also charged for the internet despite this being a benefit of my status. Oddly, I was charged for using the internet more days than I stayed there, which didn't surprise me given the way the hotel attempts to nickle-and-dime guests (and mask it by not making the bill easy to read). The internet fee was eventually removed, though it took three people about 30 minutes to figure out how. Unfortunately I was unable to get the 50% surcharge taken off.
If you want the best room in town, the Westin is your place. Just be very careful to not get scammed.

From our arrival to departure we felt like we were in the best that Guadalajara had to offer. The staff was more than accommodating concerning anything we needed to make our stay wonderful and relaxing. The heavenly bed WAS heavenly, my wife and I are very picky concerning our sleep when we travel. The room was up to date with the most modern of features and conveniences. The city view was incredible! The food was very good and everyone knew your name and made us feel special. Room service was excellent and not too pricy. We just loved our stay. Thank you to everyone we met.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sidang My monthly Mexico "Go-to" hotel
I travel to Mexico each month for business, and when I stay in Guadalajara, I stay at the Westin. I've been coming here since the week after they opened their doors. The rooms and facilities are always clean and fresh, and overall the staff is very friendly and professional. Abram & Tony in the lobby bar are the best!!!
The hotel has great recognition for Platinum members and I've only been denied an upgrade once (and then they sent fruit and beer to my room to say they were sorry!)
My only complaint or suggestion for improvement would be that the the Service Express line is sometimes not answered, or it takes a long, long time to be answered.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Lynn46 Not the expected SPG Platinum quality!
This hotel does not recognize Platinum with any of the usual amenities offered. They gave the least recognition of any of the SPG hotels I have ever stayed in as a platinum member. They had no executive level and nothing to welcome you as a special or premium member. This was the 1st SPG not including breakfast and they charged for parking as well as printing in the business center, even for platinum! I have come to value my platinum level but if the only value is the 500 pt amenity, then the value is missing!

Rated 4 out of 5 by WC818 Toilet keeps making noise once in a while
I informed main desk on this problem but was not really fixed. Had to close bathroom door to keep noise down.
Also, I gave front desk my spg gold number but somehow it was never recorded (I double checked at checkout and they have no record of my number) I have never offer room upgrade at check in (I thought it was one of benefit of spg gold)

Been going to the Westin GDL for several months on a regular basis. The staff is attentive and friendly and recognizes you when you arrive and throughout your stay (regulars). Love that bed! Food and drink are of good quality and the restaraunt team is just as professional and friendly without being overbearing or stuffy. Fun environment. The Gym is the best I've experienced in GDL overall. Keep up the good work!
