Area: Midtown

Across the street from the Port Authority and a block off Times Square, this 45-story modern skyscraper stands out among its shorter, vintage neighbors with its all-glass, multi-colored, prism design and beam of light that rises through the hotel's 7 floor atrium along the hotel's exterior into the New York sky. Some will appreciate this sort of high-tech novelty, while others may find Westin's ultra-modern motif a bit sterile. In addition to being conveniently located for theater-goers, the hotel is connected to a retail complex, and is about a half-mile walk from restaurant row.

Try and book a room on as high of a floor as possible. Not only will you be treated to superior views of the Hudson River and/or potentially a number of New York landmarks (e.g., Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty), you also will be better insulated from Times Square and city noise.

Westin's rooms are contemporary and somewhat business like with neutral colors, warm wall tones, and stylish headboards. All rooms come equipped with Westin's trademark Heavenly beds and baths, coffeemaker, and mini-bar. Internet is not free, and there is 24 hour room service.

The Life Fitness cardio equipment is in superior condition, most equipped with TV screens and amply supplied, and there are even a half dozen strength machines along with dumbbells for muscle pumping. While the views are quite nice via plentiful windows, the room itself is average in terms of décor. White walls, fluorescent lighting and dim colors create an institutional feel.

Swimmers likely know the drill (no pool here). Find a wet spot off-site for lap fun.

Runners should head to Central Park and its miles of routes.
