Westin Grand Central is a solid pick for travelers who prefer a quieter location in Midtown within walking distance of a few major attractions. This contemporary hotel is popular among business travelers, couples, and diplomats.

Formally known as The Helmsely, the rebranded Westin Grand Central features a fresh look, up-to-date technology, and solid amenities. Located between the UN headquarters and Grand Central, the hotel is more convenient for business travelers rather than tourists, but it’s still convenient to a few major attractions and subway lines, making leisure travelers feel at home as well.

The Westin is on 42nd Street, the most famous east-west road in Manhattan. Aside from being convenient to Grand Central, the UN headquarters, and the Chrysler Building, other popular attractions including the New York Public Library, Bryant Park, and Times Square are within walking distance, as is famous sights and restaurants in Midtown West.

The vibe at The Westin New York is more business-oriented than family-friendly, with the only amenities being an on-site restaurant that serves three organic meals and turns into one of the few hopping bars at night. There is also an outstanding fitness center with high-end machines, custom running maps, chilled towels, and free water for guests. The amenity that draws many business guests is the 12,000 square feet of meeting space with high-tech equipment.

Accommodations at the Westin are larger than at the average New York hotel and feature a small sitting area and a work desk. Unlike other hotel rooms, all units here have large windows with views of the Chrysler Building. All rooms have a few eco-friendly touches and many in-room conveniences. The difference between traditional and deluxe rooms is the floors they sit on.

Pros:Nice rooms. Good breakfast.

Cons:I think the quality of the hotel is excellent. I have no suggestions.

J
6.5 Okay
Pros:Location near Grand Hyatt where my conference was held.

Cons:Housekeeping should actually look at the "Do Not Disturb" sign hanging off door handle before they walk in on me taking a nap. I hate destination/resort fees. Especially when I have to make multiple emails and telephone calls to get the $35 food and beverage credit I'm supposed to get when I pay the $25 daily destination fee. The head office at Marriott can't do anything. They tell me to call Westin GC directly. The email with the disputed folio lists a Westin contact email that no longer works. I got an email telling me that I should forward my complaints to Marriott, and not the Westin contact email in the folio. When I email Marriott, they tell me to contact the Westin directly. There was mildew on the ceiling of the shower stall.

10.0 Excellent
Pros:Location was great, staff was amazing and prices were unbelievable for a Manhattan stay during NY Now! David, the front desk manager really made us feel welcomed, especially since it was the first time we were traveling with our dog. We were treated with care and loved the size of our room #3212 and proximity to the subway. Would surely stay there again and in fact booked another Westin because of the experience.
