Westin New York at Times Square
The Westin New York at Times Square is something of a beacon of calm and respite in one of the world's most bustling landscapes, complete with a beam of light soaring from the atrium to the top of the 45 story building. Dashes of copper and blue accentuate the glass building, while inside, the 863 rooms provide a peaceful reprieve. Rooms are painted with light colors and decorated with abstract art of a muted palette. The real draw of the Westin, though, is inarguably its location; just blocks from the hotel are 40 Broadway theatres, 5th Avenue shopping, Grand Central Station and, of course, Times Square.
