The historic New York Helmsley Hotel recently underwent an extensive renovation to the tune of $65 million. This renovation coincided with a change in ownership. The New York Helmsley is now a part of the Starwood Hotels & Resorts family and will assume the name of the Westin New York. This means that guests can expect to enjoy luxury lodging bliss, or what Starwood Hotels & Resorts calls the “signature Westin experience.”
Among the things that the new flagship Westin New York Hotel has to offer are 774 immaculate guest units. All of the guest units have been completely redesigned, and each offers more than 300 square feet of space. The largest units are the 11 one-bedroom suites and the sumptuous, three-bedroom presidential suite. Eco-friendly materials were used during the room renovation process, and guests can certainly expect to have a healthy assortment of amenities at their immediate disposal.
Ample facilities serve to complement the elegant and refined guest units at the Westin New York. Highlights include a restaurant and more than 15,000 square feet of meeting and event space. The hotel also offers a range of services, including concierge service. As for the Westin New York location, you can find this Manhattan hotel just a couple of blocks from both the United Nations Building and Grand Central Station. The Broadway theaters and Times Square are also within walking distance, and guests can easily get to any other number of famous New York attractions.
