What the hotel could do better:

Didn't like the FEE Charged for all the Amentities--and No restaurant or ROOM SERVICE! No paper delivered to your door -- had to pick one up

Hotel Description

New York’s got boutique hotels in every conceivable shape and style, and don’t get us wrong, we’re grateful for the diversity. Spice of life, and all that. But sadly underrepresented in the New York boutique-hotel scene is the glamour and romance of prewar Manhattan. Until now, that is. The Art Deco spirit of the Twenties is alive in the WestHouse, a brand-new luxury boutique carved from one tiny sliver of a massive 1927 building in Midtown.

As luxury boutiques go, this one is unapologetically high-end; the design, by Jeffrey Beers International, is pure modern classic, all marble, chrome and dark wood. And all the necessary creature comforts are present and accounted for, including GHD hairstyling tools at your disposal. The precise details as regards the bedding are perhaps superfluous, but the point is this: there are hotels that take great pride in their “sleep systems,” and there are those that don’t. When given the choice, you want the first kind.

It’s emblematic, actually, of the WestHouse’s whole approach. The concierge service far exceeds expectations with a suite of perks up to and including VIP event access, guided culture tours, and extravagant chartered transport. And guests with a yen for shopping need not leave the building — your room will have a direct line to Net-a-Porter, complete with 24-hour service and same-day delivery. And while there are two in-house dining and drinking options, the cozy Den and the 23rd-floor Terrace lounge, there’s also certainly no shortage just outside, placed as you are right in the heart of Manhattan.

Please note: WestHouse adds a nightly fee of $35 (plus tax) per guest to all room rates. This fee includes daily European-style breakfast, afternoon treats, light fare, house beverages (alcoholic and non-), coffee, wi-fi, business center services, and digital newspapers and magazines.
