The Westin took very good care of me. They washed my bedding and towels with dye free detergent (because of my allergies). The room was very nice and clean. I like that the lamps next to the bed have outlets so that I can plug in my sleep apnea machine. I had one issue with my hotel bill and the... More

We had four nights at the Westin Grand Central in November 2016, and we thought it a first-class hotel. The first room the reception gave us was on the road-side, and what with building works across the street and windows that didn't quite seal, it was quite noisy. We were assisted superbly by Nenita - who is a credit to... More

The room we had was on the 34th floor lift takes about 15 seconds to get up there, 6 lifts in total so you wont wait long for one the room itself was wonderful, massive bed with... More

I stayed in New York for 8 nights and 7 days, arriving for check in just after midnight after flying from Australia. The staff at the front desk were extremely helpful, upgrading us from a regular king room to a deluxe king room. The rooms were nicely looked after, with the a great heating system and HD television.

Customer service and hospitality are fantastic! If you need a midtown location, the Westin Grand Central offers all you need for a wonderful NYC stay. Front desk, restaurant/bar, fitness center are all very good.

I have stayed at this property regularly since it was the Helmsley. Now branded Westin for many years, it is my first choice for midtown lodging whenever it is not out of by budget, which is too often. I have lifetime Starwood status, and when I do get upgraded, the suites are among the nicest around, and the standard rooms... More

We stayed in New York for 6 nights and after 3 nights at a horrible, noisy hotel we decided to give this a try. We're able to book a 'high room' which guranteed over level 27. It was great. We had a view of central station, room was luxurious. Bath was nice, amenities were good, room was spacious with 2... More

Another quality stay at the Westin - quality rooms, quality service, easy to get to hotel and good central location for easy access to lots of shops and some attractions. Would stay there again. Could use better sound insulation from street level noise. Beds very comfortable and good room sizes. Elevators like most NY hotels congested at certain times of... More

Overall this hotel if fine, however the noise in the corridors at night, the traffic noise at night (even on the 38th floor) and the none existant view from our room slightly tainted our experience. But the location suited our needs perfectly and the staff were very attentive and knowledgable. I did wonder why the tramp residing at the front... More

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.
