I stayed here for a week on business. Very convenient location on E 42nd St. The room was good, large for central Manhattan and well appointed. Wi-if also good and fast. Bathroom fine, with plenty of towels and good toiletries, along with bathrobe (but no sippers). Reception was efficient but without charm or friendliness. Restaurant very disappointing - had dinner... More

Got a room due to working that weekend and needed a place to crash. Typical Westin type room which is a good thing. My only complaint is I had notice the menu wasn't present in the room. I called service express to ask that one be brought up (this was around 12:15am). Was told that late night dining had ended.... More

I stayed in this hotel in December 2015. While waiting for a room, I feel asleep sitting in a lobby only to be woken up by a security " officer" s if I were a stray cat in the hotel. He basically told me I could not sleep there!? I am a Platinum member of Starwood. I complained; no one... More

Thoroughly enjoyable experience. Great location for the business centre and staff were friendly and helpful. I had a decent sized room and the bathroom was great. The items in the minibar were extortionately expensive - as you would expect but you were left a free 500 ml bottle of water each day. I was on the eighth floor and could... More

Westin is one of my favorite hotel brands, and this time the difference was the service. They have a great front desk team, we were received by a wonderful woman who made us feel the warm welcome we needed. The thing that made us leave the hotel with a bad experience where. We where actually upgrade to a better room... More

My wife and I travelled to New York December 26th 2015 for my wifes birthday on the 30th. The Westin Grand Central was recommended as one of the best hotels to stay so we booked to stay for 6 nights. The booking was made in February 2015 almost ten and a half months before we were due to travel. When... More

Stayed at this hotel a couple of times and have not been disappointed. I even left my iPad there once and got it back totally unscathed. It's clean, well maintained, and has the usual appointments one expects in a nice hotel. Unlike some midtown hotels, this one has individual climate control in the rooms so you aren't sleeping in a... More

Had drinks and a salad at the bar, the bartenders were the best, friendly and fun to chat with! My room was clean and spacious for NYC. I would stay here again in a minute. It makes business travel s pleasure.

When making this reservation I thought it was right next to Grand Central Terminal. It is not...it is about 3 blocks east. But it is very nice. And very well insulated. We were on the 15th floor and for 2 nights I only heard one distant siren and no car horns. Comfortable. Clean. Well appointed. Fairly reasonable considering this is... More

The Westin is a large, modern hotel in midtown New York. The rooms are quite small, though not a problem and the service is OK (though not great); prices are relatively good value and location is very good.

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.
