What was once known as the Arabella Sheraton Hotel is now known as the Westin Grand Cape Town Arabella Quays. The name may have changed but if anything this elite five star hotel is now just grander than before.
Located in Cape Town's foreshore and attached to Convention Centre, the views from most of the four hundred and eighty-three rooms and suites at Westin Grand are stunning, capturing Table Mountain, the city, Victoria and Alfred Waterfront and the harbour. Fully glazed floor-to-ceiling windows allow the view in and keep the noise out. Underfloor heating and your plasma TV will keep you toasty and entertained during chilly times. The design and decor is a mix of modern and contemporary styles, incorporating African textures and colours, and the sophisticated rooms are very well-appointed.
Vast leisure spaces at Westin Grand include a popular cocktail bar with soft live jazz playing some nights; a cigar bar upstairs; Raleigh's; the Chef's Table; and Thirty 7 - the hotel's signature restaurant with a wonderfully eclectic menu.
AltriSpa, is the impressively comprehensive spa that takes up the whole of the top floor of the Westin Grand Hotel. Views from the treatment rooms and even the sauna (!) are magnificent. A vast array of health and beauty treatments are offered here and the spa features a steam bath, Jacuzzi, swimming pool and a gym.
This hotel is ideally located to explore Cape Town. The Victoria and Alfred Waterfront is a five minute walk away and is any shopper's paradise. From designer labels, coffee shops and the latest movies, the Waterfront has it all. Trips leave almost daily to Robben Island and conveniently depart from the V&A Waterfront too.
