We stayed over a Friday and Saturday night at the Westminster to attend a family function. This is an excellent hotel. The facility is in very good shape and kept very clean. Rooms are spacious, comfortable and quiet. The staff was very welcoming and pleasant. Although we did not dine at the restaurant, we did attend a catered dinner here and both the food and service were excellent.

I was in town for the TriBeCa film festival and this hotel and staff was AMAZING. I had a huge suite for a great price. Totally renovated!!! I took a car into the city. With the price of a suite & the car service, it was still cheaper than a tiny little box room in Manhattan. I LOVED IT!!! Door to door it was a 35 min ride into Manhattan. Breakfast was included & I had access to a 24 hour snack room/business center, pool & jacuzzi and I will stay here from now on!! Michael Polese General Manager, THANK YOU for making this stay a memorable one…I will be back FOR SURE!!

Room Tip: Go for the suite, its worth the price..so much better than a room in NYC..With the hotel and the car...

My husband and I stood for our mini honeymoon (we had a infant so we really couldn't go too far or be away too long) the weekend of June 7-9 2013. Check-in was quick and easy, and we went out for dinner at a place on Rt 10 the came back to the hotel. We had a club level room with a king size bed, pretty spacious and nice. We were so tired that we really didn't pay much attention to the details that night, we laid in bed and within minutes were asleep (the bed and pillows were sooooo comfy, best sleep we had in a long
time). The next morning we noticed that the headboard had some rather disgusting stains that looked suspiciously like bodily fluids. I wanted to call down and complain but my husband is laid back and not one to complain so he talked me out of it, he figured if our room was like that, the others would be too so why bother. Besides this gross discovery, we were honestly pleased with everything else. The bathroom had a beautiful large glass shower and the most delicious smelling toiletries from an eco-friendly company (definitely a plus for me, I always appreciate eco-friendly companies). The pool area was a nice size and was clean with plenty of fluffy towels and chairs to sit back and relax. Second night, we slept with our pillows by the foot of the foot of the bed, away from the stains! But again, amazing sleep, incredibly comfy bed! We would really like to stay again for our first anniversary this June; as I said, we had no complaints besides the stains on the headboard, but we are definitely debating it because it was a rather disgusting problem. It is a shame because we truly did love everything else about our stay! By the way, we are big coffee drinkers so we also appreciated the awesome "love at first sip" coffee pods. If there was a guarantee of a completely clean room, I wouldn't think twice about another stay!

The Westminster hotel is clean, nice, and comfortably elegant. Every single person that I interacted with was extremely pleasant and helpful. Check in was an absolute breeze. My room was very pretty, and elegantly appointed. The bathroom was clean and the shower was great. Co workers felt the walls were thin and they could hear their neighbors but I didn't hear anything! Perfectly quiet....a wonderful night's sleep. The continental breakfast was great!

Didn't know what to expect,but after arriving and staying for the weekend , I can't say enough, the staff on every level was the friendliest and helpful staff I've ever dealt with. The hotel was the cleanest I've seen, I asked when they opened, I was told ten years, I can actually say I thought this was a brand new hotel.the pool and it's equipment was super clean heated and chlorine levels perfect.i can't say enough, but thank you for caring for the guests. Almost forgot the bed and the pillows were the best, most comfortable , again thank you for a great night sleep.

Hotel strives to give you the extras of a superior hotel. King bed was comfortable with four oversize pillows. There are a safe and quiet refrigerator. Ample dresser drawers and well lite work desk with office desk chair. There is a nice full length three ft wide beveled glass mirror in the corner but no light to see to put on makeup. The bathroom size is adequate and provide a magnifying mirror but again the light is minimal for applying makeup. Shower has good heat and pressure. Towels are over sized and of good quality. The complementary assortment of toiletries were as good as the best hotels with shower cap,sewing kit,shoe mitt, shaving kit, mouthwash, toothbrush, moisturizer and three bath products. Wall mounted thermostat ac/heat under window unit sounded like a subway train taking the corner too fast. We were in room 271 that has a connecting door to the next room. The hotel room was quiet until someone with children was in the adjoining room. You could hear the background sounds of the TV at night and the actual conversations in the morning..If you can get a room where the AC/Heat unit fan is not making noise and without a connecting door it will be perfect down to the tootsie roll pop they leave for you.
