Fodor's Review

Reconstructed from three 19th-century landmark buildings opposite Trinity College, the Westin is all about location, but the marble pillars, tall mahogany doorways, blazing fireplaces, Palladian marble busts, and period details also set it apart. The central atrium is a hodge-podge of decor: Chippendale reproduction chairs, horse paintings on pale peach walls, turquoise lamps, and too many overstuffed sofas. The bedrooms, on the other hand, are functional, small, and suave,

with crisp, white Indian linens, custom-made beds, and 18th century–style oak furniture. The rooms that overlook Trinity College are a little more expensive, but the chance to watch the students in a leisurely game of cricket on a summer weekend makes all the difference. The Exchange restaurant and Mint Bar are in the original vaults of the bank.
