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.
