The Westin New York Grand Central, New York
elevat only 2 elevators in service for a 40 floor hotel servicing hundreds of people. Wait was about 15 minutes when used. Most people had to use stairs and carry their luggage.. Also always long lines at front desk. Room and location were fine.

Awesome NYC Trip!
We stayed for 3 nights and had a really great time at the Westin Grand Central Midtown. The desk and other employees were all very helpful and nice. Really close to so many thing to see and do. Very quite also. We never were disturbed day or night. The room was great, and a good size for NYC also! If you take your Netflix's password you can login to your account from the tv and watch what you/kids would like to watch.

Very Good8.0
Pros: Great, modern, well-maintained hotel. Excellent location. Cons: Expensive below-average food, poorly-functioning elevator service (had to wait for up 20 min at times especially when going down) Overall, great experience. Would stay here again
Julia, us3 night trip
The Westin New York Grand Central, New York
-We were charged $100 plus tax for early arrival. And normal check-in time is 4pm, whereas with most hotels it is 2pm! -Totally understaffed at front counter for such a large property; I never saw more than 3 receptionists on duty. -Breakfast wait staff was almost non-existent; on our first day, there was only one waitress working, although there were two bartenders behind the bar without practically anything to do; on subsequent days, there were 2 waitresses on duty, still insufficient; -in-house phone calls to the concierge had incredibly long wait times, sometimes as long as 15-20 minutes; -a fire on the 4th floor had all the fire alarms working, but no announcement as to what was happening, and whether to evacuate or not; -

I'd stay here again!
Great spot near Grand Central. Easy walking to Times Square w/o all the noise. Great staff! Elevators need help, though.
