4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

It was a great location, within walking distance to plenty of restaurants and bars. Easy to get to the train station or catch a cab. The bar downstairs is nice but a bit understaffed. The rooms were on par with the Westin name. Our room didn't have the great view but it was quiet.

Room was in a wonderful condition, the view was a little poor but didn't spend much time in the hotel itself. It is a 10 minute walk away from Times Square which meant the hotel wasn't directly in the chaos which was nice. However, it can be quite noisy so the higher the level, the better. Overall fantastic hotel.

We stayed there on a very busy weekend in July. We had to store our luggage in an over packed bell room and when we retrieved it that night a bellman threw around some of the luggage, letting a few pieces hit the ground from a high shelf which broke our camera. The hotel wasn't willing to find the security-camera... More

I had a Premier room that was quite large and had all the amenities which a guest may require. There was no tea making facility available but on my request it was arranged. The Hotel Breakfast was very expensive and just average. My advice would be to stay in this hotel but have breakfast outside.

I made this reservation through a discount site that does not provide the name of your hotel until after you book. The site offered a GREAT price and it had excellent reviews (95% satisfaction rate). It was advertised as near the theater district and having a good gym. It IS within a quick subway ride to the theater district (although... More

I'm a travel agent and had sent clients to this hotel prior to going myself. They had ranted and raved about the location which is why I chose it. The hotel is a short walk to Grand Central which made getting around the city a breeze. My childhood best friend arrived at the hotel at 6:00am the morning we were... More

I had stayed here previously when on a business trip, and enjoyed the stay so much that I brought my family here for a vacation. I requested a room at the top floor (I'm not yet a Gold Member) that I could stay on, the 41st floor, and a room with a view of the Empire State Building, which the... More

My family and I (5 people) traveled to NYC for some sightseeing and decided to stay at this hotel. We were offered a high floor room that included a great Southern view and we could see part of the Empire State Building. The room was above average for NYC hotel rooms which normally run small. The hotel is pretty narrow,... More

We had a couple of days to spend in the city on our way home from vacation. We selected this hotel because of the price and I was a little concerned it may be out of the way. My concerns were unfounded! From the hotel we easily walked to Time Square and MoMa. The hotel was comfortable, spacious and clean.... More

Always a convenient place to stay...love staying on the west side of the island when I have a morning flight out of LGA, helps a lot with time. Also usually very ready to check in to as it isn't a huge hotel.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
