The Westin Valencia occupies the former Royal Wool Factory of Valencia, a modernist building constructed in 1917. Its location is ideal for those who want to fully enjoy the city, being within walking distance of all the main attractions, including the spectacular City of Arts & Sciences on the site of the old Turia riverbed — with the beach only a couple of miles away.
At the heart of the hotel is the half-acre Garden of Renewal. Blending seamlessly with the building’s late-19th-century architecture, the Mediterranean garden is crowned by an impressive 36ft Canary Islands palm tree, which has graced the interior patio since the hotel was originally built. Planted with indigenous bay, olive, orange and lemon trees, flame-red callistemon, towering date palms and hundreds of flowering annuals, this calm oasis also attracts numerous species of birds all year round. Its natural beauty makes it the ideal place to sit in the shade and unwind while dining al fresco.
The Westin Valencia offers 135 luxurious art deco style rooms and suites combining traditional design with modern materials. Its standard rooms are among the biggest in the city, with plenty of space and light. If you want to take advantage of the sunshine, all Grand Deluxe rooms have their own terrace where guests can have breakfast. The palatial Royal Suite comprises two rooms, a lounge, library and bar. It also has two whirlpool baths: one inside and the other on the terrace.
The chance to socialise over sun-drenched meals come courtesy of two restaurants — Rosmarino, where guests linger over a delicious Mediterranean breakfast buffet at the start of the day, and the elegant Komori, which specialises in Japanese delicacies with a modern touch. Visitors can also have afternoon tea on the terrace of El Jardí and at night, h club>valencia comes alive with crowds sipping on champagne and cocktails.
To further take care of guests’ mind, body and soul, the hotel has a wellness centre. The Caroli Health Club features a therapeutic indoor saltwater pool, sauna, hamman baths, gym and beauty and massage treatment cabins. The Westin Valencia also has seven meeting rooms and a banqueting hall that can seat up to 280 people.
