WestHouse Hotel New York
Why We Love This Hotel
- An indulgent hotel with the prices to prove it, three blocks from Central Park and less than 10 blocks north of Times Square
- There is a steep residence fee charged per adult, but it covers a lot, including daily breakfast, afternoon treats and unlimited happy hour drinks (5-7 p.m.)
- Rooms have a hushed, monochromatic art deco style with Sferra sheets and marble surfaces
- The included drinks and snacks are tastier up on the rooftop terrace, which overlooks Times Square
The WestHouse New York Hotel is an elegant 5-star property just three blocks south of Central Park. The art deco-dominated design features crystal chandeliers, antique art and images of nearby Carnegie Hall.
The hotel does charge a residents fee, but unlike your typical resort fee, the WestHouse packs in the value with enough perks to ensure guests feel more like residents than customers. Daily savory breakfast, barista drinks, afternoon treats, light evening fare, Wi-Fi and unlimited happy hour drinks (5-7 p.m.) are all included in your stay. This is significant in a city where cocktails can often warrant a price tag of more than $15 each.
The location of the hotel is nothing short of desirable: Ritzy Fifth Avenue shopping, Central Park, Columbus Circle and Carnegie Hall are all within a 10-minute walk.
