Great place to stay, value on par with the rest of the hotels in the area. The whole area is over priced but that's New York.

Westin stay in Times Square

My husband & I spent the night in Times Square and stayed at the Westin. The room was perfect as was the view. There are only 2 complaints. The sink was a little stopped up which was a pain every time we had to use it. On checkout day we went to get breakfast & did some last minute shopping. When we returned to our room at 12:07 pm to get our packed bags and checkout they had already changed the key code. We had to wait for security 20 minutes outside the room before we could get our bags. There is no checkout grace period. Other than that everything was great!

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

Be careful taking the subway on the weekends. The trains run on the maintenance schedule. Even the natives are confused with getting from point A to point B.

Perfect location & nice hotel

We stayed 4 nights in August 2014 and could not have been better located. Stayed on the 24th floor and the room had recently been remodeled.

What an Awesome First Experience

This was My wife & I, first time staying in the City. The hotel was located in a perfect spot. just a block away from the Mass chaos of downtown. The staff was incredible, the food service was excellent. Nothing but 5 star service. I felt really comfy when we came in @ midnight and to enter the hotel you needed to pass thru a security check point which i liked. No room card No access! thank you very much we will be back.....

Semi-annual Times Square 2 day jaunt

Very pleasant. Room was good size, bathroom furnished with updated fixtures and very clean. The mattress, pillows, and bed linens made our sleeping too cozy and comfortable. Just what we needed to relax and then enjoy being right in the center of Times Square. The only negative was not having a children's channel like Sprout or Nick Jr. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. We will return.

Excellent experience for first time in NYC

The Westin is an excellent location for access to all the sights of NYC! It's a bit pricey but worth it. My children and I were able to tour the city, see the sights, shop and eat without too much effort. The fitness center & room service is great. The rooms are a good size and staff is very helpful. Utilized the self serve business center and when I ran into glitches the staff was more than happy to help and resolve issues. Sad to say no pool but loved this hotel for our vacation & would highly recommend the Westin.
