Anniversary Getaway

First, we've stayed at 7 different hotels in Manhattan previously. The WestHouse is far and away the best. On this trip, We wanted a location that would allow us to access all that the Times Square area has to offer but yet offer a relaxing area to sit and enjoy the experience that is NYC. The WestHouse is an excellent choice. The resident fee (well documented in advance) is a bargain when you consider the value of relaxing in a well appointed and relaxing space with food and drink during the day and night. The hotel staff does an excellent job of taking care of guests - upgrade to a King bed and help with the coffee maker that is far more complicated to operate than it should be. Wifi worked but was not strong and the room temperature was a little warm, due to the unseasonably warm December weather. Even with these minor inconveniences, our stay at the WestHouse was more all that we'd hoped for and more.

Very nice hotel. Room wasn't ready when I arrived at 6 PM

Everything went well with my stay at WestHouse except for the fact that my room wasn't ready when I arrived at 6 PM. They made other arrangements within 10 minutes and tried to appease me with an "upgrade" to a king from a queen room. I would stay here again, but come on WestHouse, you've got to have your rooms ready for new guests by 6 PM

Take one of the many subway lines located within two blocks of the hotel rather than dealing with midtown traffic.

Small hotel with average service

Okay just to be clear, this is a very small hotel. It is actually the top 6 floors of the Park Central Hotel. So because of it's size it's a very quiet and intimate place to stay. With that being said this is nowhere close to a 5 star hotel. What makes a 5 star hotel a 5 star hotel is the staff's attentiveness and the level of service they provide. And while there are some nice people that work at Westhouse they are really lacking is many areas. I stayed at the ritz for the first half of my trip and the level of service was night and day. The only thing these 2 hotels had in common was comparable pricing, the service at the Ritz puts the westhouse to shame. Here are a few examples. 1. Many times when I left the hotel there was no one available to flag a cab for you. This is a big deal because this place is on a side street. 2. No room service/restaurant/bar in the building (that speaks for it's self) 3. While I was taking a shower I suddenly heard someone BANGING on my bathroom door. When I asked how can I help you, this rude male individual asked if I wanted my room cleaned, to which I responded "sir I am clearly in the shower, can you please return at a later time." Unbelievable! That incident alone was the best indication of the level of some of the employees there.

Nice hotel, small hiccups

While aesthetically the hotel is a gem, there were some tiny hiccups with my stay. I stayed 4/29-4/30. Overall, everything is sparkly and new. From the carpets to the desk, it's all an A+. The room are small, but typically small for an NYC hotel. The location is great - wedged between Central Park and Times Sq. Staff is very friendly. I was upgraded to a king bed with a Times Sq. view - the beds are comfy and the TVs are massive. However, they turned the AC off at night. After waking up sweating and checking the thermostat, it said 75 in the room, but was to 65. I let the front desk know and they told me they turned off the AC because it was "cold" outside. Assuming this is to keep costs down, I would advise them not to do that. Both of my night stays were incredibly uncomfortable - especially the second. The front desk said they'd have my thermostat checked just to be safe, but what they ended up doing was opening the windows and closing the shade. So, all night I couldn't understand why it was SO LOUD in my room, until I opened the shade in the morning. I got no sleep. Tip to hotel: People like to sleep in cool temperatures - DON'T TURN THE AC OFF.
