Great central spot in NYC!
Great location, clean rooms, nice layout. Only downfall is that it seemed like only a couple of their elevators were operational. There are 6 and I'd guess only 1-2 were online, which made it hard to come and go. Otherwise, I'd highly recommend!

average hotel
good points Location was good, easy access to soho and times square. The gym was well equipped and clean. negative points The room was really noisy, we could hear cars honking, garbage trucks, sirens from ambulance/cop cars, at all hours of the day. The hotel only provides the bare essentials for toiletries, i.e. shampoo, conditioner, body lotion and a bar of soap, there is no cotton bud, cotton, toothbrush, shower gel, mouthwash.

Our stay at the Westin was pretty good and we would definitely stay here again. We were in town for Drag Con and didn't plan to stay in the hotel often but were looking for a space that was: affordable, convenient (to both the Con and the city sites in general), some level of luxury (it is a Westin, after all), and safe. All of our expectations and needs were met. The location is stellar given its proximity to everything while also being far enough away from the nightmare that is Time Square. Very easy to cross over to the west side of the city and about a block from the 7 train. There was also a 24 Hour CVS and hella eateries (chains and otherwise) nearby so there wasn't a need to go far for necessities and meals falling a full day of Con. A lot of the reviews said the hotel rooms were dated and I was very worried that I may have been hoodwinked. I was delighted to discover that was not the case (or perhaps I have a different idea of dated) and found the room standard. Staff was excellent and responsive, answering all 500 million questions I had. The destination fee also gets you a voucher to a bunch of stuff. We used ours on the buffet breakfast. My only complaint was that the mini-bar/grab and go items were on a sensor. I understand this is an anti-theft measure but I did constantly feel like it was 'Mission Impossible' moving about the general area around those items in fear of accidentally incurring a charge. If it's that serious, take it out of the rooms altogether.

Weekend trip
Spent a few days in NYC with my wife. Location was the main reason for staying here. The front staff was very nice and helpful, but the room was average at best. Definitely very dated and run down. I remember Westin’s being a premier hotel to stay at, however, this location was marginal at best.
