Westin was a great place to stay - good accommodation and pleasant staff - no free wifi tho but if u chose to join their site it is free as opposed to pay 15USD per day. Close to central station (for airport drop off/pick up bus) and a short walk to all attractions if u turn left and united nations... More

Hotel is 2 blocks walk from Grand Central station so its very centrally located. Spent the weekend here and did not need a cab or subway but walked as far north into central park and as far south as St. Mark's. The rooms are pretty big, we requested a high floor and were given one, with views of the Chrysler... More

The Westin Hotel Grand Central is on 42nd Street, an easy walk, even with roller suitcases, from Grand Central Station (2 blocks). The location is convenient to catch several subway trains from Grand Central, and the cross town 42 street bus stops right in front of the hotel, and goes very close to Times Square and the Theater district.

My husband and I stayed here for an NYC weekend. We took the train from CT. The Westin is a 5 minute walk from the terminal with small bags. The location was optimum for us, allowing some enjoyment of the city and the unseasonably warm weather we walked everywhere. Our room was on the 30th floor with a view of... More

I stayed at this hotel for a city break and the hotel exceeded my expectations. The room was Lovely, clean and modern. The bed was huge and comfortable, we also had a fantastic view of New York on the 34th floor and also a great view of the Empire State Building. I would highly recommend this hotel!

I would recommend this hotel based on its location, modern feel and room size. If you are looking for a hotel, that has good facilities such as a bar restaurant or lobby lounge area then this hotel is not for you. The bar at this hotel is poor, dimly lit, uncomfortable furniture and seems to command a price excepted in... More

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.
