nice hotel

after hiking in NH for a week a nice comfy hotel hit the spot. The beds are super comfortable and the fitness center is amazing. One annoyance is that you have to pay $14.95/day for internet access. When you pay over $300/night (with taxes) it seems you might get wireless for free like other hotels.

The Westin Grand Central

The hotel went thought a change in name from the Helmsley and a 72 million dollar renovation! Very clean and comfortable as well as quiet rooms conveniently located within walking distance of the subway and major attractions as well as shopping!

Convenient location with comfort

This was close to Grand Central Station. The rooms were nice and all of the employees were very helpful. I found the exercise facility was great, as well. The downside was that there was poor access to the business center and the restaurant was closed in the morning. However, there was a PAX food next door so breakfast was served.

nickle and dime you

Staff was great, room was good. BUT... For a couple of hundred bucks +, for the room, they needed to get just a little MORE money out of me. Cost $50 if you want to use the refrigerator in the room. Free coffee, but you need to make do with one ersatz creamer for the whole weekend. I needed to get dressed first thing in the AM, and go out to get coffee. That is really cheap on their part. I didn't bring a computer because all hotels have a business center. But again, this one charges to use it. I think, I'll go back to the cheap hotels. At least they provide decent services.

learn how to use the subways. If you are new to New York, this can be difficult at first, but well worth the effort. Way more interesting than taking cabs everywhere.
