Overview

Many top NYC sights within walking distance of hotel
Many say this Westin is subpar in terms of service

Located in the heart of midtown Manhattan, just minutes away from New York City's iconic Grand Central Station, The Westin New York Grand Central is located in a very convenient spot. Major attractions – including Bryant Park, the New York Public Library and Times Square – are all within walking distance. And after a long day of sightseeing, you can escape from the Big Apple's concrete jungle to unwind in one of Westin's signature Heavenly Baths. If you're planning a trip, look out for THE LCL: Bar & Kitchen, NYC, a trendy on-site restaurant. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here. Recent guests were split on the staff: some travelers encountered helpful and friendly workers while others said some employees seemed clueless and even abrasive.
