Recent guest reviews

Excellent breakfast and very good attention , lm happy with the attention l received

Loved the super clean rooms. The beds are so comfortable !!! & the lobby with the options for food and drinks, great !

Great location. Quiet. Very clean. I like small hotels.

I enjoyed by stay at the Westgate. When I was checking in they offered me a room with 2 queen beds even though I booked a room with 1 bed. My daughter wound up staying with me, so we appreciated the two beds. The room was clean and the hotel was in a good location. One negative was that when we went to use the WIFI, it asked us to pick a "plan". I called the front desk to ask about the "free wifi" that I saw on Orbitz. They said it was not free, but because I was there one night, they would give us an access code. So overall they were very accomadating, but it was unfortunate that I even had to call and ask.

Covers had blood stains Syrup or something wasn’t cleaned under the bathroom sink Shower knob was somewhat broken

Great location and very good condition of Hotel . All staff very helpful and nice.

Great location and very nice staffs. Fire alam went off by shower steam as vent wasn't working. Very clean and comfortable bed. Did not hear much noise from neighboring rooms or stairs. Overall enjoyed stay.

The location is fantastic, just a short walk from Grand Central. If you’re watching broadway, you can catch fhr M42 bus. The staff is friendly enough. The only downside is the physical hotel itself. The rooms are aging and dearly need updating. The bathroom was at least thirty years old. There was no fridge or microwave. The tv only got broadcast channels. Etc etc.

It was a great price for New York, within walking distance of Grand Central.

Front desk employee Matthew ( cant remember the last name) was amazing! Westgate give that man a raise!

There was a leak from the floor above in our bathroom and the staff did nothing to mop up the water, give us an update or clean our flooded bathroom while we were there. There was no offer to use another room to shower, nor did staff return to the room at all after the first assessment. They did offer a free breakfast, 15 mins before breakfast closed and to credit a portionnof the price of the room.

Room heat did not work even after they sent maintenance to fix it

I had a very pleasant experience from check in until check out. Great staff, surprisingly spacious rooms especially for NYC. I would definitely go back. Walking distance to Grand Central which is always a plus!

Pleasant staff but the bathroom was not very clean.

Nice historic hotel. Close proximity to NY attractions
