Despite being so close to many of the busiest areas in the city, the hotel offers a sanctuary for its residents, leaving you feeling serene and calm as soon as you enter through the large revolving doors into the glamorous lobby, modelled on 1920’s glamour with a nod to the art deco aesthetic.
Upon arrival we were surprised with an upgrade to a Terrace Suite, on the 22nd floor, which had its own private outdoor space overlooking the city that never sleeps, the views across Midtown Manhattan and towards Times Square were just incredible, especially by night. Rooms are decorated in keeping with the 1920’s deco influence from downstairs, but with a modern twist of greys and creams and of course all the mod cons including large flat screen TV’s in both the lounge and bedroom, and GHD hairdryer and straighteners which is a lovely touch, (leaving more space in your suitcase for those shopping purchases!)
After taking what seemed like hundreds of photos whilst our room was still in an untouched, presentable fashion, we made our way to The Terrace on the 23rd floor to the guest lounge to sample the High Tea. The Terrace has been decorated in a cosy fashion, echoing the style of the rest of the hotel with plenty of plush, comfortable seating and ambient lighting, before falling into a sugar induced coma from all the delicious cakes and pastries on offer we nipped out to the outdoor terrace for a blast of fresh air and to take in more of the incredible views.
Late afternoons call for champagne pit stops in The Den; beers, wines and champagne are included in the InResidence fee and is the perfect way to unwind and digest all the fun you’ve had during the day. A couple glasses of Perrier Jouet later and you’ll be ready to freshen up and explore the bright lights of the city all over again.
Our stay was faultless from start to finish, but it was nice to know that there were friendly and helpful staff ready and willing to help should you need them. If you’re ever in doubt of where to stay for your next trip to the Big Apple, look no further than The Westhouse. This is luxury accommodation at its best.
