4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Spent a long weekend with my wife. Room was well appointed, bed especially comfortable. Wish the bathroom was a tad bigger. Too small for two people at once. Reasonably quiet location for NYC. Easy central location to go pretty much anywhere in the city. Staff was friendly. Would return.

This was a Pearl Wedding Anniversary present to ourselves. so from the start, you will get excellents and a few niggly bits. We flew to JFK from Heathrow after staying the night before at the Sheriton Hotel, this was a first for us, we've never flown from a London Airport before, we normally go straight to the airport, to the...

The hotel is in a great location, only a few minutes walk from Grand Central Terminus (train station), 5th and Madison Avenue, the Chrysler building and mid-town. The transport links are also very convenient with GCT and the subway. The rooms are nice but not overly extravagant with the necessary items such as sofa, desk etc but of a relatively... More

That this property is among the best hotels in terms of value for money in midtown New York due to its location. It is far enough from the maddening crowds of Times Square but yet within walking distance or at the very least a short cab ride to all that a couple would want to do. We actually got MTA... More

I stayed at this amazing location for over a week. Location Location and knowing it was SPG I thought it would be my home away from home. The location is in the heart and soul just 3 mins from Grand Central station. The hotel is like a big budget broadway show but the actors in it who are meant to... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night for the US Open. Short walk to the train to go to Flushing. Friendly staff and the room was clean and quiet. We would recommend this hotel for family, business, or couples.

We stayed here recently while visiting New York for the first time. It's in a great location, central to all places of interest. The rooms are very clean and have modern decor, the beds are comfy, we were very impressed. There's a lovely bar downstairs where you can enjoy a quiet drink at night watching passers by in the street.... More

I've often thought that men were the designers of hotel bathrooms because the lighting is usually terrible. But the bathroom lighting at this hotel was the best - perfect for putting on makeup! I loved the location and the staff was super friendly. My only reason for not giving it an "excellent" rating was that the lobby was pretty sparse... More

My boyfriend and I booked the Westin for two nights over Labor Day weekend. At check-in, they told us they only have Queen rooms available, not the King that was requested. We reluctantly accepted this fact as we had booked our hotel that week and then made our way up to the room. Upon entering our room, we were inundated... More
