Love Happens at WestHouse New York
While there is something exciting and soothing about staying away from home when at a hotel. If it can feel sort of like home at the same time this is a major bonus in our book. Since opening its doors, WestHouse Hotel New York has innovated Manhattan’s hospitality landscape with its distinct “house away from home” concept and Art Deco-inspired design. Love Happens had the great pleasure of staying at the WestHouse on a recent trip to NYC and we loved every minute of it!
The Vibe at WestHouse Hotel New York
Inspired by a bygone era of social, artistic and cultural spirit. The boldness of Art Deco. A passion for interior design and couture. And the indulgence of all that is fine and luxurious. WestHouse is an entirely new hospitality concept where guests, whether business or leisure, are treated as ‘Residents’. With top-level service in a space reminiscent of a luxurious New York townhouse, WestHouse offers the best of hotel and home.

From rich woods, textured marbles to polished nickel and metals and bold Chevron graphics, the modern and tailored interior is warm and intimate. An environment that perfectly accentuates the hotel’s home away from home vibes!
With 155 bedrooms, 15 suites with separate living rooms and 1 prestige suite, each room at WestHouse continues the public spaces Art Deco vibes while offering cozy master bedroom (vs. guest room!) atmosphere. A number of the rooms offer outdoor terraces and vibrant views of Times Square.
Lh stayed in one of WestHouse’s Luxury King bedrooms. Upon entering the room’s ample foyer space it felt as though we could be walking into our personal apartment. A wall mirror with a shelf for our keys, purses, etc met us. Down a short hallway sat the bedroom and bathroom.
The large room held a desk, small breakfast table, large flat-screen LED TV and a luxuriously cozy king bed outfitted with New York City’s own SoHo-based Sleep | Studio, a proprietary sleep system of bespoke mattresses uniquely designed to conform to individual body types.
The bathroom was a bit on the small side, but it had everything needed and we loved the black glasses! In addition, the delicious bespoke DayNa Decker® bath amenities and professional hair styling system by ghd® were nice touches. And while we did not use the service, WestHouse’s exclusive partnership with NOMI Beauty is a fabulous added amenity!
