My recent stay at the W New York was everything I needed, and then some. The location is great, Midtown East with easy access to the subway and within walking distance to the major Midtown attractions. The service from check-in to check-out was impeccable. I stayed in the Marvelous Suite, and marvelous it was. The Marvelous Suite is a 700sq.... More

The W New York was very nice. The location is very good as it's walking distance to many businesses and attractions. I was there on business and it was close to my office. I entered the lobby and the energy was palpable. I was checked in quickly and the front desk staff was very friendly. I arrived in my room... More

Overall, perfect location, friendly staff, and it has the W Store. The hotel room and the bathroom were very small, but we were only in our room to sleep so it worked for us.

Meh! What's there to say? This was the end of a one month road trip across America and we splashed out to end in style. Don't get me wrong, walk through the glass doors and you think you'll be in good company - that is, of course, until you walk into your "room"! I say "room", of course, but really... More

This hotel offered all the uniqueness of a W. The decor was very modern and fun. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The room was a bit small as they didn't offer king beds which is typical of New York. This was a great location close to Central Park and the MOMA and of course plenty of shops and... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
