The Westin New York Union Square is located well. It is right in the heart of union square and walking distance to many restaurants. Our family stayed here last September in a fabulous room with two queen sized beds. We loved the hotel. The only complaint I have is that the beds are more like full size beds. It is...

I visited this hotel with my partner back in December. After reading reviews about noise and the size of rooms in NY we were both really nervous about what we would find but this hotel rally surprised us! It's a short tube journey to time square and the station is literally a few minutes walk from the hotel. Because it's...

Rooms in New York tend to be smaller than in other cities, but the rooms here are larger. Bathroom is significantly larger than the W on Lexington. LOVE the Bliss products as well as the robes. Not a luxury property, but utilitarian, safe and comfortable. Easy & efficient check in and check out. Air system worked well. On a business...

We stayed at the W Union Square while looking at colleges for one of our kids. We used Starwood points and were upgraded to a large room which was very much appreciated.

Get the "wonderful" room or suite. Our 5 year old loves the couch sleeper! Staff loves children and the location can not be beat. We usually come on fridays so that we can go to the Union Square market on Saturday. Plenty of great restaurants in the area as well and the Union Square subway station.

In a great location, this hotel has gone through several decors - I have stayed since it opened - and the current is not one of the best... nor the worst. A bit overdone, shoddy construction, and stained fabrics don't make it live up to the 6-star Starwood rating level. I am a Platinum member and even giving plenty of...
