Visited from 26th December to 1st January. Spacious room and spotlessly clean. Paid a little extra for a room with a view and weren't disappointed with the view of the Chrysler building. Well-placed for exploring. Only minor issue was our room being opposite the ice machine so we could hear that at times. Didn't use the bar at all but...

Reviewed 16 December 2016 via mobile

I chose the Westin New York Grand Central for its excellent location, just one block from Grand Central Station and close to 5th Avenue. We had one or two minor issue when we arrived but these were quickly dealt with by the outstanding front desk manager Mariah. Her customer service skills are second to none and she made our stay...

Excellent hotel, great location, close to Grand Central Station. The staff was very nice and helpful. I would definitely stay there again. First time staying at a Westin Hotel, but would definitely stay in their hotels in the near future.

Best parts about the Westin GC: - attentive management - best lounge in the city - the power strips under the bar tables are awesome - menu is great. Only wish is that room service stayed open later, but an overall gen.

Had six nights here at the Weston Grand Central, with my daughter. from the 28th December to the 2nd of January. Nice clean hotel, rooms were nice and spacious, and comfortable. Had mini fridge, coffee machine and toiletries were nice. Very close to all attractions in New York.

Steps away from Grand Central Station, every possible meal and tastes all around, the fascination of the big city at a glance from the room window. Front desk staff is quite helpful, friendly most of the times. Again, I understand the differences between cultures and the way they treat customers. The rooms are large enough, with a king size bed...

This is our 4th time to stay at this property. We love it. We come to the city multiple times a year. Sometimes just as a romantic getaway, others as a family. The location of this property is perfect. You're a few blocks from grand central, about a mile from Central Park and that makes you about a ten minute...

Perfect location. Great hotel. Clean. Stayed two nights. Had a wonderful time and was very pleased with the accommodations. Bar was nice too. Didn't have any food there so can't comment on that. Would stay again next time i am in the City.

I stayed at this location over March Break with my sister. We were worried as we had a bad experience at the W our first night in, but this location is amazing! Check in was a breeze, and staff was polite and accommodating. We booked a room with one bed and she upgraded us free of charge so we'd each...

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood 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 heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the 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.
