In 2012 The New York Helmsley was remodeled and reopened as The Westin New York Grand Central. As the name would imply, it is just blocks from Grand Central Station. The hotel has 774 guest rooms that are all nicely updated and fairly spacious.
Business travelers will appreciate the very functional desk; complete with desk level outlets to charge your phone and laptop as well as a solid internet connection and plenty of desk space. Even though the bathroom isn't exactly luxurious, it certainly is sufficient and does the trick for a quick visit.
If there is a knock against this property it would have to be that it is still a noisy location. I assume the windows need to be replaced and this will then be resolved. This sort of thing doesn't bother me since I live in a city and am accustomed to the sound of horns and sirens.
I like this property and its convenience to my office just a few blocks away ensures that I will continue to return.More
