My husband and I came to this hotel to celebrate my milestone birthday. When we first got there, we were not happy to find that our room was not yet available and it was past check-in time. Disappointed we walked over to the concierge to find out about what was nearby in terms of bars & restaurants, etc. He was... More

The hotel is very nice and comfortable, and if you have a high floor you likely will have a cool view. Unfortunately if you are not booked in a high room there is generally no way to enjoy the spectacular views form the 32nd floor. They used to have a public lounge on top but now it is only for...

In general, the hotel is nice because it's near the Union Square. So it's very convenient, with easy access to dining, shopping, etc. But the service is not excellent. When I first checked in, I was given a room at the far end of the old wing. I didn't like it, so I went back to the front desk and... More

Although the hotel is in a great location and is nice and clean, there are several things that could be improved!! Pillows were awful and there is no bottle water offered in the room!! For the price for... More

Was there for a conference at a good rate. It's quite large and lines can get long for check in and bellman but overall it worked out well. Took the recommendations to ask for tower room and was on 6th floor which was good but wished I was even higher. Bed and pillows comfortable and room was large. Appreciated the... More

I was in town on business and looking forward to getting back to the Westin as my last stay there had been lovely. Having recently achieved SPG Gold status, I thought I was in for something special. I was wrong. Arrived and checked in through the SPG gold/platinum line. Staff was pleasant and quick and I was off to my... More
