With 863 rooms situated just off the city's most bustling intersection, the massive Westin NY-Times Square is suited for visitors looking for convenience and comfort. Any downside to the cold corporate reality—long lines for the elevator, room-service delays—is counterbalanced by a bounty of amenities. Set in a stunning, 45-story glass tower, the hotel tacks on free Wi-Fi in public areas and provides an indoor connection to the E-Walk Entertainment Complex on 42nd Street. Furthermore, the accommodations are undeniably cushy. Even the basic level (Traditional King) includes flat-screen TVs, iHome radios with iPod docks, and super-plush Heavenly Beds. Guests can eat at an outpost of Don Shula's Steakhouse on the lower level, drink on the eighth-floor lounge, and then sweat it all off in the spacious gym and spa.Pros
