Westin Valencia: A Property And Suite Review Of My Stay
Are you looking for a hotel for your trip to Valencia? Don’t look any further than the Westin Valencia! I stayed there with my sister in law in February of this year (2018) and had a wonderful stay. Here is my review with plenty of photos. Please note that this is an unsponsored stay. I used my Starwood points for the hotel room which I earn via stays Starwood Hotels as well as spending on my Starwood Preferred American Express (Click here to get 75,000 points when you sign up with my link).

From the train station in Valencia, my sister-in-law and I hailed a cab and rode it to the Westin Valencia. When we entered we found the check-in/registration area easily and the staff who helped us were friendly and very helpful. After checking in, we went up to our room which was already available.
The suite that we were booked into was spacious. After staying in many hotels throughout Europe, I know space is a rare commodity. Our suite had two real queen sized beds and our room had a couch and coffee table. The windows didn’t open much but they were big so there was a lot of natural light in the room. The bathrooms were up to date and there was both a tub and shower. I didn’t take a bath but I would have liked to. Instead, I spent a lot of time in the spa area!
Before heading out, we did a quick tour of the pool/gym/spa area. To say I was excited was an understatement. All guests at the Westin have access to the spa area which also includes the pool and the gym. If you do want a massage or treatments you do need an appointment. Cuñada or my sister-in-law called down for a massage but sadly there weren’t any appointments available during our stay. Perhaps if you want one, reserve one in advance.
We were only in town for 24 hours so I decided that I would try the pool and sauna after dinner before the area closed. Then I would do an early morning workout before breakfast. Because I am a Westin Preferred member, one of the privileges is late checkout. This allowed us to leave our bags in our room rather than with the concierge. If we wanted to relax in our rooms we would but we went out for lunch nearby.
The only thing we didn’t do at the hotel was eat at any of the dining establishments. There are a few restaurants on the property but we chose to explore local restaurants. I prefer local eateries over hotel dining unless I’m really lazy and treat myself to room-service. And even then it still has to be fairly priced. It’s rare to get really great food at a decent price for room service. Just being honest!
Would I stay here again and pay for a room? Yes! I loved the spaciousness of our room, the pool and spa area, as well as how helpful and friendly all the staff were. I know there are loads of hotels that are more chic or cool but overall I always get great service at Westins and Starwood properties.
