Let’s jump straight to the conclusion – this is not a place I would stay again nor is it one I would recommend to anyone, for one simple reason – under the pretense of manufactured hype so very associated with the W brand, the fundamentals of a decent hotel’s stay are missing – the air conditioning is astonishingly loud (to...

Great location and helpful staff... Only a few minutes walking distance to the Chrysler Tower and Central Station. Just outside the door you can get into the hup on hup off bus services.. Rooms require some update. In general, great for a short stay !!

The rooms we stayed in were well proportioned and clean. The decor of the hotel is very dated and in some parts crumbling. My bathroom had taps that would fall off. The worst aspect of the room was the jet engine like sound of the air conditioner. We were a party staying in 3 rooms and all of us could... More

Staff have the normal New York efficiency and friendliness. Check in efficent etc Restuarant is fine and food good quality but... More

The hotel lobby is very modern looking and the hotel itself is in a great location, just a few blocks from time square and a number of tourist attractions. The area is very safe and central, without the hustle and bustle of the main square. The W is an older hotel (being the first W ever), with smaller rooms. There... More

Asked for a quiet room and the receptionist changed my room to a room facing Lexington Avenue! Unbelievable. I complained and then was moved to a room facing the court yard. Unfortunately, in the room the air con was very noisy... Noisier than Lexington in the other one. All rooms are tiny. All in all, not worth the money -... More

stay 4 nights good deal on internet, in the end the bill was wrong and the manager had to come to sort the problem out. No apologies, very unfriendly. Not appropriate guest treatment for a hotel in this category. Overall rooms were clean (bathroom wall difficult to clean and full of splashes - probably toothpaste and so on). Good housekeeping...

A stunningly designed, conveniently located, escape from the bustling city. Impressed from the overall impression down to the small details. Friendly, professional staff. Well-maintained common areas, including the bars. Individual rooms are lovely. A wonderful visit.

I stayed here for a long business trip. Favorite things: The cleaning man on my floor always said hello and told me to have a great day, and also there was always cool, fruit-infused water available in the lobby--those little details add up over a long trip. Gym is nice as are beds and housekeeping service. I did have the... More

I was looking forward to staying at this hotel, especially since we upgraded to a suite. However, when I entered the room I was let down. Hard. Having stayed in a variety of nicer hotels in NYC, the space here was insanely small. Even for a "suite" it was super small. The bathroom was shameful. You could not use the... More
