The Westin New York Grand Central, New York

Needs improvement!
Customer service was terrible. It was a 20 minute wait even though there was no one in front of me. At check in, I gave the clerk Pei my Marriott Premier Plus Visa, asked to ensure I would be credited for the nights of both my rooms and the points. She told me I would NOT receive Marriott reward points even though I'm an Elite member since I booked my stay through a 3rd party and not directly with the hotel. I have never had this happen before or I would have stayed at another hotel. I asked for bottle water and she told me they do not give out bottle water and I would need to wait until I was in my room for the 1 free bottle of water per day. The hotel restaurant was nearly out of most items we tried ordering on the food and beverage menu. Their was no hospitality at all from any of the staff members. The room was clean and housekeeping was great.I will not stay at this hotel again nor recommend it to anyone.

A young lady at the reception desk was terrific. She made check in so easy and when I returned to ask her something later, she remembered my name. Again the next day I saw her and again she called me by name. Very impressive, didn’t seem that anything was too much. I believe her name was Skarly. Made us feel so welcome and at home.
