We booked this Westin for a one night stay in May to meet up with friends for a pre-mother's day weekend treat. The hotel was surprisingly nice. The room was a little smaller than the Westin on Times square but better decorated, not as utilitarian. It was fairly clean and had a rain shower had which I really enjoyed after a sticky day in the city. The beds were also clean and comfortable. The only draw back was that it did not have a club room that gold/plat. members could enjoy. The check-in was fast and the staff friendly. I just wished they had some complimentary water. They did send up a complimentary dried fruit and nuts snack which was a nice touch.
All-in-all I think this may be my SPG favorite hotel in the city to stay. It was away from the congestion of tourists but central enough that we could get to places conveniently. There are a lot of stores and restaurants near by as well as a bakery/convenience store 2 doors down. It you are driving its right next to Mid-town tunnel and icon parking 2 blocks away ($40 with internet coupon/day). They have valet parking but its $60 a day.
