Location near Grand Hyatt where my conference was held.
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.
Heart of the City
Lack of external noise or interruptions. Spacious and well-equipped for the business traveler. The location provides the consummate the mid-town Manhattan experience. Seamless and effortless stay.
Surprising Gem in mid town!
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.
GOOD PLACE TO STAY
GREAT STAFF, VERY HELPFULL
DID NOT CLEAN OUR ROOM ON DAY 2 OF OUR STAY
Great base for NYC activities
We loved the comfort, location, staff helpfulness, cleanliness & smooth functioning.
