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.

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.

thought it would be better.

Arrived at hotel at 4:30PM room not ready. The front desk asked as to have dinner and come back. When we got back our room was ready, however the bathroom smelled of mold and rags. I should have complained but did not since I was too tired to, and hope the following day it would be cleaned properly. It was not..it still smelled of mold and rags. I would not recommend this hotel.

Great Location / Great Hotel

We just returned from our 3 night stay and really enjoyed the Hotel. Everything was as we expected. We were able to check-in early and the room was perfect. Didn't need to call front desk for anything during our entire stay. Would definitely stay there again!
