Make every aspect of your trip to New York a true New York experience — book a stay at the Westgate New York Grand Central.

Westgate New York Grand Central is a boutique hotel known for its historic charm, upscale design, and modern conveniences. Situated in the heart of Midtown East Manhattan and just a short venture from iconic New York landmarks such as the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, and Times Square, this treasure of a hotel provides all the ambiance of a classic New York building combined with modern features that make it easy to unwind and relax in total luxury.

Built in 1931, The Westgate is recognized by the Historic Hotels of America. Within its gothic revival architecture, it boasts 23 floors and 300 spacious and impressively dressed rooms. The hardwood-marble magnate and gold-trimmed marquee set the stage for a stay characterized by champagne toasts, sunset cocktails, and enchanting evenings spent socializing with New York’s elite. Balcony perches provide guests with captivating views of the Tudor City and East River below while triple-paned windows in guestrooms deliver a reprieve from the city’s constant bustle.

Lavish Accommodations Provide for a More Than Comfortable Stay

Though the size of the guestrooms varies, each is spacious and appointed with plush furnishings that invite guests to unwind and relax after long days of living the bustling New York lifestyle. Deluxe bedding and pillows, spacious wooden desks, flat-screen LCD TVs, and air conditioning and heating all make visitors feel right at home. Triple-pane windows block out the sounds of the city below while blackout curtains work to keep out the lights.

Many guestrooms feature balconies that offer some of the best views of Midtown of any of the surrounding buildings, while the common areas such as the lobby, dining room, and courtyards sweep you away to a time when ballgowns and coattails were the norms. In addition to lavish living quarters, this upscale NYC hotel features a business center, 24-hour fitness enter, casual eatery, and valet parking.

What To Do

Though the hotel is a site in and of itself, you don’t want to pass up the many opportunities its central location affords guests. As the city starts to come alive for the day, take a walk to some of New York’s more notable landmarks such as Times Square, Empire State Building, Bryant Park, Rockefeller Center, or Chrysler Building. The New York Public Library and Museum of Modern Art are also worth exploring, as they provide a glimpse into the true NYC culture.

Where To Eat

Though the hotel’s dining areas serve up delicious gourmet meals, branch out during your stay and dine at one of Manhattan’s famous eateries. Have lunch at The Modern during your trip to the Museum of Modern Art or head over to Harlem for generous helpings of Southern comfort food at Sylvia’s. Finish off your evening with wine and Tuscan fare at the Hearth, an establishment as warm and inviting as its name implies. Some other local favorites include the following:

  • Los Tacos No. 1
  • Frenchette
  • Nur (Middle Eastern)
  • Daniel (French)
  • Valeska (Ukrainian)
  • Katz Delicatessen (Traditional American)

The Manhattan Nightlife

Manhattan’s nightlife is just as energetic and vibrant as one might expect from this city that never sleeps. There’s a club for every culture, every budget, and every music taste. Rooftop93 perches atop the Wyndham Garden Hotel and boasts delectable spirits and stunning views of the city. Lavo Nightclub is a bi-level club that features live performers and a dancefloor downstairs and that serves up authentic Southern Italian food upstairs.  The Rum House allows you to step back in time thanks to its wood-paneled, candle-lit ambiance, classic cocktails, and swanky piano tunes.

If you want to experience a true New York vacation, book your stay at Westgate New York Grand Central. As its name implies, you’ll be in the center of it all if you do.
