Slept in till the alarm went off for the first time since leaving home - and what a joy it was!
After our lovely buffet breakfast we put our luggage out in the hallway to be loaded onto the coach. Once we were on the autobahn on our way to Rothenburg our tour director, Bob, had a talk to us about our optional tours. Because there are only …
Early Sunday Morning we flew from London to Munich using Easyjet which is a budget European airline. I definitely prefer this one to Ryanair that we've used in the past. Much less stress though our flight was delayed about thirty minutes because of some baggage issue. We could understand of course since we lost a bag along the way :( We took the …
8.30am start this morning - heaven! First stop today was Rothenburg - a medieval town that survived everything including WW2. It was so exquisite, just looked like you'd lifted it from the front of a chocolate box. It is getting colder and there is pretty persistent snow on the side of the road and in the fields. This region of Germany is a big …
So this weekend, Steve, Deppy, Niko and I headed to Munchen for a little taste of Alemania. We arrived at the airport at like 10:30 and then took a 40 minute cab ride in the rain to our 5 start Westin hotel! The ride there we thought we were going to die because the driver could not figure out how to use the anti fog button so the entire windshield …
... at Oktoberfest so I went with some garlic and herb bread. I can still taste the garlic on my breath. The bread was covered with it in thick slices with chives on top. And the most important part.. The garlic was raw!!! Well good for my immune system. I suppose, maybe it would counteract the 3 litres of beer and soft drink I had just consumed. Oh dear.
Paul ate a meat roll with the others, which he found out afterwards was oxen. He seemed to enjoy it ...

The westin Munich is a great place to stay, but it pricy. Many ammenities, such as a pool, workout center and spa. my favorite- the pauliner restaurant below the hotel! German food done well! Of my biggest complaints... No free wifi Internet- even if you do pay 300+ euro a night, they still charge 16 euro a day for Internet access.

Historical Traveler Reviews The Westin Grand Munchen Munich
Having lived in Munich some years ago I can say, this hotel represents everything good about the city. Staff very friendly and efficient.
Rooms well serviced and ample size. Food and Beer very good!. Nearby access to UBahn which then puts you in easy reach of everything. Having stayed in Sheraton hotels in many different locations - this is one of the best. I will definately use it again for both business and for family vacations.
A must to avoid
This hotel has to be the worst of the worst. In all my travels I have never come across such rude and insulent behavior - and from every member of thier staff! Rude is not strong enough word. How they can continue to draw clients is beyond me. I would rather sleep in the street than stay there again.
Rude, Rude, Rude
My stay at this place was terrible. To begin the front desk misplaced my reservation and refused to honor my prepaid Travelocity rate, but instead insisted on charging full rack rate! Travelocity is still trying to sort out this mess.
To add insult to injury, the bellman needed over an hour to bring up my suitcase. The room was nothing special. The heater was weak and I wasn't able to get the room temperature anywhere close to a reasonable level.
Even for a New Yorker, restaurant prices seemed to be excessive for the quality provided.
If this is "grand", Sheraton must be blind.
Good location, good hotel
Stayed there in November'03 for a few nights. Good location and very nice hotel. Good service and friendly staff - not an intimate hotel, but had quite a grand modern atmosphere. I'd stay here again. The pool area is nice (not that large though) and the only downer is the gym area, which is very poorly equipped and small.
..The 10 dollar bottle of water
I am staying there every 2-3 months, cant help observe the clerks, waiters and generaly the help there, that think they are the "bosses" and we are there to "give" them our hard earned money, rude, pompous, snobs that have been hired on the pretext of... "if you are working there, you must be all of the above to fit the place and position....3 dollars for a glass of water...???...or how about 10 dollars for a bottle of water......???..GIVE ME A BRAKE...if it was not for my meetings there I wouldnt set foot in this place..... on reason of criminal "charges"...lol ...and bad attitude.
One of the best hotels I have stayed at
I stayed at the ArabellaSheraton Grand Hotel last July and I cannot say enough about how wonderful this hotel is. The elegance of black granite welcomes you with a friendly staff, beautiful rooms and more.
Definately worth the price.
Recently stayed there while my appartment was being painted. We got an amazing rate of Euro 149 with breakfast during Oktoberfest!The hotel is a classic 70's style concrete bunker which was nicely renovated. However the original planning errors remain - dubious location overlooking a busy highway, low ceilings, smallish rooms. The neighborhood is a prefab mish-mash of appartments and offices in the middle of nowhere. Public transportation to downtown is quick and easy.The general athmosphere is very busy and very impersonal. In no way did we feel welcomed or as a guest. The rooms are very nice and well equipped, but rather "cozy". Parking at Euro 15 per night is way to expensive for the neighborhood.The breakfast buffet was great with a wonderful selection, the waitstaff was somewhat slow in removing plates etc.The hotel itself is a typical better Sheraton, but in no way a 5 star "Grand Hotel". If you are looking for a comfortable place to sleep the place is fine. If you want to stay in Munich find a nice place downtown.If you are looking for a true 5 star experience IMHO currently the only place to stay is the Mandarin Oriental (ex Rafael).
Concrete block architecutre - but very appealing and grand from the inside. Luxury convention hotel with very attractive weekend rates. Completely upgraded and renovated. Class act. High-class, vast health and wellness area - top in Munich. Ask for a Bavarian style room (fun). Drawback: Location, nothing worth visiting nearby, take subway (walking distance) to city center. Although not in the same part of town, you can compare this Hotel, due to the remote location (having to use the subway), with other chain properties comparably remote located, like the Marriott, the Renaissance or the Park Hilton. Among those the Sheraton ranks first (better rooms, better fitness club). If you want a top chain hotel in the city center: Go for the brand new Le Meridien (great: cool flat screen TVs in every room).
Great Hotel, Friendly and efficient staff, outstanding Breakfast Buffet, Paulaner Brewery Restaurant and Beer Garden with good and inexpensive food, Lobby Bar w/entertainment.
Subway stop about 2 blocks with 5 minute ride to city center. Usuallly can find very good rates for this skyscraper hotel except during conventions.
Five Star Hotel Service at reasonable prices.
