Stayed here recently for 5 days and found the hotel to be great for our needs- well located in Manhattan within walking distance to Times Square, Grand Central station , Chrysler building and the UN. Lots of eateries in the area and easy to get a taxi outside for trips further afield. Checkin was quick and easy and the room...

It was a special birthday for my wife and this was her present - a week in New York. The Westin Hotel - Grand Central was recommended to us. We are happy to recommend it on the basis of our experience. The location of the hotel in Midtown was ideal. It put us at the centre of Manhatton but away...

The beds are so comfortable. My daughter and I felt very safe staying here and walking the streets around the hotel. It took us 20 minutes to walk to Times Square to see Chicago. The next day when we checked out - they stored our luggage so we could finish exploring the area. The only complaint is on site parking...

Most of the basics were there for me: fast easy check-in, nice lobby, fast elevator, neat room. The beds were really comfortable and I had a good night's sleep. When they have two people in a room, it would be nice if they put two robes, but then again I probably could have requested that, I didn't bother. There are...

Westin hotels are generally always good. This is one is no exception. The beds were very comfortable; the room was quiet and everything was very clean. The location is fantastic - it is an easy walk to Grand Central station and Times Square and the UN building. However, the front reception staff were lacklustre. On arriving we were not greeted...

Good location. Clean rooms. Wifi good. Higher level room is more quiet. Close to everything. Coffee shop in lbby for those with jet lag. Gym good. Beds not too comfy and couples should ask for double. We always seem to get 2 3/4 beds which we shift together. We do seem not to get the aircon temp ideal. Would love...

We stayed for four nights in January. Very close to Grand Central Station which was great for us. Also close enough to walk to Times Square, Chrysler Building, the library and UN. Actually easy to walk to many key places. Rooms were on the small side. And our room was on 42nd St so it was quite noisy and the...

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.
