While in New York I had a chance to experience some wonderful hotels. The first experience wasn’t the best but then I went to the Westhouse and everything changed. It was like I stepped into a magical land of happiness!
All of the staff are super friendly and this is definitely appreciated. The reception was amazingly polite. This put a huge smile on my face. The Westhouse hotel is located on the corner of 55th street and 7th avenue which is very central. Only a few blocks from Central Park makes it a great starting point to explore the city.
After checking in I went up to the 22nd floor to see the room. First thing I noticed on my way there was how nice the hallways were decorated. This beautiful decoration is carried on inside the rooms.
The styling of this place is seriously amazing. Everything is gorgeous! The windows let in a lot of light which is great. I really like the bed, especially the headboard. It’s very warm and cozy. There is a lot of personality in this hotel and you can feel it through the ambiance and service.
The bathroom is just as wonderfully designed. Very bright with marble covering a majority of it. I like that they put a giant mirror right in the shower. For the men out there here is a pro tip. Use the mirror for shaving towards the end of your shower to get the closest shave of your life. You’re welcome in advance. Wink.
One of the major benefits of the hotel is the afternoon tea/coffee and happy hour that they offer in their lobby. This is the type of thing that gets people excited, especially Pierre. During the early afternoon they have tea and snacks. Then in the evening they have an open bar along with more food! Jackpot!
In the later evening they offer an open bar along with a pretty substantial amount of food. It was really a lot more than I expected! Well played Westhouse, well played.
The facilities are also something that you need to take note of. The gym has very solid equipment and I had it all to myself. It’s medium-sized and has everything you could possibly need to stay in shape during your travels. The one thing that would really complete the package would be locker rooms along with a steam room and sauna.
After an exciting evening of open bar and snacks it was time to get rested. I was so excited to wake up and eat breakfast that I could barely sleep! I had toured the premise on the day of arrival and the dining room was beautiful. Finally, after my handsome sleep, I woke up and it was time for the big show. I had so many questions! What would they offer for breakfast? Would there be good coffee?
Yes! I was not disappointed! A fantastic coffee machine is available for your convenience. They offered a continental breakfast along with a few extras which had everything I needed to feel satisfied. It was a pleasant surprise that hit the spot. All of the food was quality and Pierre was happy.
I must say that I really enjoyed my experience at the Westhouse hotel in New York. Nearly everything was perfect. A notch above in many areas. The extras like afternoon tea and evening happy hour are something to really enjoy. The staff is out of this world pleasant. I can guarantee that unless you’re an evil person you will enjoy your time at the Westhouse! GO GO GO!
