I recently stayed here 8 nights for a business trip. The location is a great respite from the hustle and bustle of the city and is well located for those doing business in Hitec City.
Hotel room was kept well and stocked full of amenities. Internet worked great and was of acceptable speed. Do take note that unless you have a rate where it is included or you are not Gold SPG and up, you'll have to pay a daily rate for this. My rate included the buffet breakfast (I think all rooms may include this) and it was a reliable start to everyday. At 10:30, when service ends, they are on top of cleaning everything up so do make note of when you go downstairs.
Service was great on all accounts. Pool was fantastic as was the spa/sauna both of which are complimentary.
I'm not so sure I would stay here as a tourist though given its proximity. While it is walking distance to a mall (free shuttle at the top of every hour from hotel) and a short auto ride to the outdoor market (Shilparamam) you really need a car service or a taxi to get you anywhere to the true city. I guess it depends on what you're looking for. Old city is clear on the other side of town and can be an hour ride in prime traffic. We did hire a car through the company for a full day. Our driver was Prasantha and he did a great job of taking us around town. Think it was 8,000 INR but well worth it.
Quick pointer: When planning your ride to the airport, I would just have the hotel call you an outside taxi (Meeru was a very good, metered company I used). They charge something in the range of 3-4x the metered rate for their car service. Should be in the range of 800-900 INR for the metered service and was very reliable. Just tell the Concierge ahead of time. As a matter of fact if taking a taxi to the Westin, would recommend using Meeru at the airport as well. Go downstairs and look for the taxi queue.
