Very nice hotel

Great hotel with a good location. Went into the city daily. The location to Laguardia was too far. Newark was fine.I would stay here again,especially if I drive to NY.

Good location for the price

Rooms were clean and the staff was very friendly. The rooms had everything that was needed, especially the flat screen TV.

Amazing trip!

We went to NYC to celebrate my 25th birthday and I have to say, I was very much impressed with the hotel. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, gave us tips on how to save money (take the subway instead of a cab, restaurants around that were cheaper than the one at the hotel, etc...), our room was spotless, the bed was VERY comfortable, the bathroom is big and with all utilities (magnifier mirror, hair drier, plenty of towels, etc...). We saw the pool but didn't get the chance to take a swim (who wants to swim when you're in NYC anyways!!!), it's gorgeous! We'll definitely be staying there again when we go back in April!

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

The PATH train is 1 block away from the hotel and takes you directly to the 33rd street, in Time Square, Manhattan!

Decent Hotel

Nice hotel, though complementary guest services were nonexistant, and maintenence staff members were loudly conversing outside my door at 10pm. Information was difficult to find -- the room didn't have the usual binder with information on where to find food, what was included with the room, etc. Instead, there was a glossy room service menu and a brochure for upgrading bedsheets and pillows. Plus, parking was pricey and Wi-Fi was not included. Too much nickle-and-diming for a four-star hotel.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

There's a short walk to a shopping mall, which is helpful if you want to grab a quick bite or do some shopping without the ordeal of getting your car out of the parking garage.

Unbeatable location for the price!

If your looking to visit NYC this is a great place to stay without having to pay those typical NYC hotel prices. The Westin is located right across the street from the PATH train that takes you straight into the city within a matter of 10 minutes. The inside of the hotel was beautiful! There is construction going on next to the hotel so it is a bit of an eye sore from the room, but other than that great service and friendly staff. We would definately stay there again!

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

If you are not familiar with New York City, I would definately recommend buying a travelers book from the book store. Frommer's and Fodor's are just two traveling books that I have found very useful. They provide sample itineraries and places to see depending on the number of days you have to spend. The most important thing is that they include maps of the subways and streets that prevented us from getting lost which is very easy to do in the city!

Very relaxing

The hotel was very nice and the room was extremely comfortable, however the staff was not very friendly. The doormen were particularly unpleasant and seemed to be desparate for tips.
