This hotel is actually NOT in the middle of Times Square, it’s about a 5 minutes walk in a relatively safe side street from all the lights and buzz. The outside appearance of the hotel looked older and we had to ride an escalator to get to the lobby. If you could overlook all that, it’s a decent Westin Hotel for many reasons!
I was a little disappointed upon arrival but my mood towards it quickly changed the next day when I found out how many attractions and things to do for my family were nearby (within 2 minutes of walking distance). There was the wax museum, Dave and Buster and even a cinema connected directly to the hotel!! Bus tour stops were right by the Westin and there was an area in front of hotel for taxi pick-up and drop off.
Our room was generous in size and the cleanliness of it was adequate. Staff was polite and professional. They offered us free umbrellas on a day of rain; we greatly appreciated that!
If you want to stay right where the lights and buzz are, this Westin should not be your top choice. Having said that, it’s still only 5 minutes from Times Square, Broadway and 15 minutes from 5th Avenue. Central Park is not too far out (25 minutes) if you enjoy a nice stroll in the heart of Manhattan. It’s still Times Square worthy if you put all things and amenities into consideration!
