Great value for Times Square location

Very good value and extremely close to Theaters. One block off 42nd is perfect, as you don't have to walk right out into crowds. Very accessible to subway lines. Service was excellent and room was sparkling clean and new. Looks like the hotel had a major makeover recently, as the room was very modern and clean. Bedding and bath supplies were excellent. The hotel was 100% booked, but it was very quiet and peaceful. 1400 rooms, and it felt like it was much smaller -- which was a good thing. Shula's famous steakhouse restaurant is inside the hotel. The bar/cafe was a nice place to have a small breakfast in the morning, and also a nice place to stop by in the evening for a glass of wine and to watch the streets below. Would definitely recommend for families or for couples looking for a nice getaway.

Statue of Liberty inside tour is not open. Save the money and ride the Staten Island Ferry for free. It rides right by the Statue of Liberty, and the view is phenomenal.

Great!

Very close to the Subway on Metro Line 1. Our room was amazingly quiet and we were in the heart of Times Square. Beautiful room!! Loved it! Lots of places to eat nearby.

Great Hotel, Location and Stay

This was a great birthday present from my best friend. The hotel was marvelous! Great location, great view from the room of the Hudson River and shoreline. Great room, staff and on site restaurant. I would highly recommend this location to other travelers. This was my first trip to NYC and I absolutely loved it! Plush bed!, great shower! Just wonderful!!!

Anniversary Celebration

A superb location was the saving grace to a hotel stay where the front desk and bell service staff did not seem overly concerned with my challenges. Not sure if it's the New York "attitude", but our front desk person was not as knowledgeable or welcoming. Even though the outside bell servicemen offered suggestions to my parking challenge, the "that's the way it is" attitude was not very hospitable.

Great Times Square/Theatre Location

I love staying at Westin hotels and this one didn't lived up to my expectations. Steps away from all the action of Times Square and all the major theatres within a couple blocks. Lots of restaurants nearby and a subway stop right on the corner. Bed was really cozy after a long day of walking around NYC.

Great locations, comfy beds and awesome shower

The Westin was a welcome respite after a long day of walking and battling crowds. It is centrally located 1 block off Times Square, Restaurant Row, and the Theatre District allowing easy walking to all these attractions. However, walking into the hotel you wouldn't know you were in the heart of such a busy place as the interior is calming and peaceful. Our room was basic, but had the necessary comforts of a super comfortable bed, quiet hallways, and a strong, hot dual head shower that was just what we needed after a long day on our feet. We would definitely return and felt it was a great value.

Try the excellent pizza at John's Pizza around the corner from the hotel. It wasn't super crowded as I don't think it is a well known destination to all the tourists and was a great spot to try some real New York pizza.

Doing New York Right

The Westin's room design was great - reminiscent of German bauhaus . Food at Shula's was superb - worth its price; the service there was outstanding. The concierge and doorman were knowledgeable and helped us get around the big city with ease. Our housekeeper was a gem, flexing to our schedule and friendly to speak with. The only thing I would add is the Golf Channel on the TV menu, but we did not fly out there to watch TV. When we return to Manhattan, the Westin will again be our HQ.

Entertainment tip: Short drive from hotel

Fly into La Guardia and stay an extra night and leave on an early flight - at 6 AM or so rather than a peak hour. The early morning taxi ride to LGA is a breeze and relatively inexpensive without the usual traffic delays.
