Airbnb is way better and cheaper. I stayed in an 3 bedroom house near table mountain several years ago and was fabulous

Stayed at The Westin Cape Town near the V&A waterfront and loved the lounge, close proximity to Table Mountain, and that it’s a major stop for the popular day tours.

I'm just going with my sister, probably don't need that large of a place. Is the Westin worth spending the points on? Turns out it's 7 nights so it's looking like 75k total for a Protea Cat 2 hotel vs 210k total for Westin Cat 5.

African pride

Stayed at the Protea North Wharf property, great location and very walkable. Breakfast is not included at most (if not all) of the Protea properties but there are a lot of great spots nearby to checkout.
