Westwood hotel Ikoyi | Lagos hotel review
Westwood was previously called Protea hotel, hence, some of the Marriott glory still exist. The bed is super comfy, the views are spectacular, the food is amazing....but major maintenance and improvements is required to restore the hotel back to it's past glory.
Let's dive in straight away...
PROS OF WESTWOOD HOTEL
The decent hotel comes with the following facilities;
Conference rooms which sits up to 100 people and more, depending on the seating arrangement
A waterside bar with a spectacular view of the Atlantic
An in-house restaurant
A Shisha bar
A business centre
Luxury, deluxe and superior rooms
Complimentary breakfast and a'la carte option
As a frequent quest, you can negotiate room rates, or better put, you get discounts and upgrades. Westwood is considerate
Upon request and on Sundays only, the hotel goes on a boat cruise with guests who indicate interest, for a little fee
The rooms come with complimentary breakfast
Everything you require for a stay, ranging from the business centre to restaurant and Shisha bar, are all within the hotel
The rooms are reasonably spacious
The hotel needs a little face-lift. It appears that some work has commenced with the dinning area and hopefully, it will extend to the rooms because some of the furniture (especially the curtains) are outdated
My room had a lot of massive mosquitoes. For a hotel facing the lagoon, regular fumigation is necessary.
The WiFi was almost non-existence during my stay
The customer service was a bit too slow
WESTWOOD HOTEL ROOM RATES
Luxury rooms N80,000
Deluxe rooms N55,000
Superior rooms N40,000

Final thoughts on Westwood Hotel Ikoyi
Will I recommend the hotel? Oh, YES. Overall, it's a decent hotel but needs a bit of improvements to make it better. I have left the pictures unedited to show a 'true and fair' view of the hotel.
One of my principles about hotels in Nigeria as always being that you get what you pay for. Hotel business is tough especially in an environment like ours, where doing business is difficult. For hotels that go the extra mile, the cost of that 'extra-mile' is reflected in the prices.
So my dear friends, in the range of premium hotels in Nigeria, I recommend Westwood. For more information about the hotel, please check out their website here
