Rated 2 out of 5 by Expect to take the stairs The elevator situation is rarely great in a small NY hotel, but this is on a whole different level. Request a low floor and don't expect management to act if you have any issues. April 27, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Biggest disappointment of a SPG hotel I had moderate expectations of this facility, but the hotel felt dingy, along with the rooms. Room: The floors were so hard in the room that i knocked my cell phone off the nightstand and it shattered my screen. The texture was also very odd. There were black hairs all over my "clean towels" When I would wake each morning, I would be extremely congested The blinds were broken The furniture was extremely damaged I felt dirty being in the room Hotels: The elevators - enough said. I took the stairs down everytime since I would wait over 5 minutes for an elevator to pick me up from the 7th floor. even early in the morning! The hotel over all felt very dirty. Pro: The happy hour each day - very nice addition, but use that money into renovating/fixing damage in the rooms Had I not prepaid, I would have moved. I was disgusted by the hotel and would stay at another brand before staying here again - even though I'm loyal to SPG April 27, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by not worth what i paid for have stayed in this hotel before but after the recent stay i told myself, like the raven, NEVERMORE! rude staff. they lied to me that i was the only one having problem with internet. they were ready to send a technician every time i complained but problem unsolved. it was like not having water in the room you paid for! i lost two days of work. staff promised that the manager will come see me when he arrives but never did. for the price that i paid, the service was SORELY mediocre. not worthy of the "Westin" name.NEVERMORE!

Rated 4 out of 5 by An enjoyable stay At the Element Times square This is the Element Times square, the busiest area in NYC for tourists and business man, so of course the hotel is very busy and there are lots of people. Customers in this hotel range from tourists to family to business men or retired people. On check in, i was told there was no special check in for SPG platinum so i had to queue, a very long queue. There was only one agent checking in and 2 others behind the desk but they were not proactive enough to help ease the queue. I was extremely surprised i must say. So first impression, not so good, and it is usually the one that matter the most. Despite this mistake, the Staff are super friendly, and charming. The hotel is clean, nice , fresh, green and grey colour. Nice cosy lobby and nice lounge for complimentary breakfast and evening hors d oeuvres and free wine and beers. Quiete enjoyable actually, but not as chic and refined as a sheraton club lounge. More low key. Again , very helpful staff, charming people. 4 complimentary computers in the lobby as well. Romm is very nice , some of them with a kitchen, very clean, but bathroom is so tiny. However the shower is a decent size. The view from the 40 th floor is spectacular. There is a private terasse. There are not enough control of who comes and go in the hotel area ( including breakfast, 40 th floor tears, free coffee etc...), the result is that you see some bag packers who obviously are not staying in the hotel, coming inside for free food, or coffee or to go up to look at the view. This is a serious security issue who needs to be addressed before something happens. Anyone can go up the lifts. I had a very pleasant stay and found the hotel rather charming, and a good value because you save a lot of money with free breakfast, wine, snacks, coffee, gym, wifi, its all inclusive at the element time square!

Rated 3 out of 5 by It's ok The staff was friendly and informative. Room was ok, bathroom really small, mini kitchen was nice, but it had no use for it. The area is ok, I didn't like it. I may have liked the hotel better if I had time to take advantage of the amenities... breakfast, happy hour, gym, biz center. I was impressed by the photos, and I trust spg to be great, so maybe my expectation was too high, but I doubt I'll stay here again. April 5, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Too Busy For Customers This hotel was a last minute stay during our trip to New York and it is not one we would stay in again. Although the night/day we were here was fairly hectic the staff seemed overwhelmed and unhelpful. The elevators were the worst though! I've stayed in NYC hotels with slow elevators before but this was the absolute worst. We had to plan an extra 15-20 minutes into our time to get anywhere because that was the minimum wait to get on the elevator. We changed hotels to the W after one night! April 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Convenient and well put together Stayed 3 nights. Loved the shower setup with the soap/shampoo dispensers rather than the wasteful small bottles. Did not use the kitchen facilities but would plan to do so on a longer stay. Elevators occasionally difficult, ended up walking down from the 27th floor on one occasion. Definitly go early for the provided breakfast otherwise not enough places to sit. March 23, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by What a dump The Element Hotel near Times Square has the feel of a decrepit residence hotel that was refurbished into something that sort of looks like a decent hotel until you actually stay there. I could still feel the souls of all the people who died there. Room was small (though this was NYC, so typical). Electrical outlets were minimal. Towels sucked. Shower leaked. TV reception was poor and there's no TV guide in the room. WiFi was spotty at best. Front desk sometimes never answered the phone, despite letting it ring 100 times. Breakfast was awful, even by two-star motel standards. And on my final night, the elevator broke, forcing me to climb and descend 32 flights. The ONLY saving grace is location. It's close to Times Square, Javits, and subway lines. That, and if you really need a kitchenette in your room. I also got a great corporate rate, which is the only reason I went with it. But not again. I'd pay more to stay in a nicer place. March 23, 2015
