Taipei has long been a favourite destination among many tourists who seek exciting city vacations in Asia. Known for trendy eateries, amazing shopping deals and choices as well as the famous Taipei 101 building, the city boasts a string of trendy hotels. One of these chic emerging hotels is the Westgate Hotel.
Recently opened in March 2013, the Westgate Hotel is strategically situated on the main street of Zhonghua Road. This makes it one of the best hotels within the vicinity as Ximending, the popular shopping area for the young and trendy is literally a minute’s walk from the hotel the moment you step out of the lobby.
To make things easier, the Ximen MRT station is also just one minute away from the hotel proving the excellent spot it enjoys. With 121 tastefully decorated rooms, the Westgate satisfies the needs of most travellers who search for comfort, convenience as well as practicality when travelling.
On a lighter note, every floor of the hotel has a different artwork display exhibited the moment you step out of the elevator. Each artwork on every floor has a different meaning and representation that captures the hotel’s image and personality.
Every room has a modern urban contemporary design and creates a very cosy atmosphere. Each one is equipped with wi-fi connection, an LCD TV as well as a CD and DVD player. Like most hotels, all rooms come with complimentary buffet breakfast at the Unwind Bar & Restaurant which offers a myriad of Taiwanese, Japanese and western delicacies.
The hotel also has conference room for six to 12 people, a business centre which is free for all guests’ use, a fitness centre and even a self-service laundry room!
With top notch service from the hotel staff and one of the best locations in the city, the Westgate is definitely worth a stay should you ever visit Taipei.
