Stayed here in July for 3 nights. The hotels location is fantastic for getting around and seeing the sights. Our room was clean and comfortable and more spacious than many similarly priced hotels. This hotel is perfect for a long weekend break and very reasonably priced.

Couple on a weekend visit to NYC. Arrived late on a Friday night. Starwood member booked a king standard using AAA. Late 3pm Sunday checkout. Upgraded to higher floor king with sofa. Friendly staff. Clean room. Bed pillowtop had long lump that would not smooth out and only provided boudoir pillows--the long narrow type. I thought they were being stylish,...

Stayed here with my wife for 3 nights, the rooms were small but that's to be expected in the city, the location was good, walking distance to most attractions, will definitely stay again if in the area. Parking was really not an issue as they had their own garage.

A comfortable Hotel in a great location. Rooms are good with good sized double beds. All facilities like a coffee machine, safety locker, toiletries,wifi and air-conditioning were there. Felt short of space to keep the Baggages. Staff is friendly. There is a bar/restaurant at the lobby level, which was good. But their "Grab and Go" Breakfast was not good at...

Location is convenient to everything. This location has the ability to walk to numerous sights. Short walk to grand central station. About 15 to 20 minute walk to theater district and time square. Hotel was nice. Not impressed with hotel restaurant. Door men friendly. Elevators not sufficient for the amount of rooms they have. We were constantly waiting for the...

Our corner room on the 30th floor was really nice, and the bed was superb. Our view included the Chrysler Building and 42nd Street to the west. We could also see a bit of the UN to the east. Elevator service was pretty quick, too. The location near 3rd Avenue offers lots of choices for quick, delicious bytes, and Grand...

The Westin always delivers... Nice rooms, friendly service, great mattresses and linens! You really can't go wrong and know what to expect whenever you stay at a Westin hotel. The view from the corner room was spectacular and Erica at the front desk was excellent!

We spent 3 nights at Westin Grand Central in August 2016. The location is fantastic, walking distance from Grand Central Terminal, Chrysler Building, Madison and Fifth at Midtown. The hotel has a range of convenient facilities round the corner from 24h pharmacy to breakfast (Starbucks and others). The room was spacious and neatly furnished, all services up and running and...

I loved everything about this hotel - we were a couple with a 7 year old child. I booked 2 nights at $216 per night including all taxes and fees through Hotwire; the property was available for the same total price (higher room rate but less taxes and fees) as the pre-paid option on the hotel website but since I...

The Westin is a clean, modern hotel that is located in Midtown Manhattan. Staff were friendly upon checking in, and were super helpful in allowing us to have an extended checkout until 1:30pm free of charge. I recommend it if you find that it's geographically convenient for you.

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.
