Lots of taxi cabs hang out at entrance of hotel. Nice size bar attached to hotel with separate entrance also. Lobby very minimalist and clean. Mini bar in lobby with seating area near for computer workers.... More

I travel to New York frequently for business and since 2007, I have ONLY stayed at the W Midtown Hotel - THE ORIGINAL W!!! I am currently north of 60 stays here and have been a Platinum Starwood member for years. There are two people I want to mention at this hotel who are worthy of recognition. Derron has become...

Recently booked a block of rooms here for an overnight with friends. Many of our rooms weren't ready due to late checkouts. The staff was very apologetic and provided our guests with cocktails in the warm and vibrant lounge. Rooms were great and the restaurant has a fantastic brunch too! We would definitely book here again.

The location is great--walk to Times Square, Central Park, shopping, great restaurants, etc. Our room was larger than I expected, had everything we needed in it, clean, and had enough storage so we were not tripping over luggage. The bathroom's slate floor was a nice touch, as were the Bliss bathroom products. Bed was very comfortable. We never waited for... More

This hotel is located in a more quiet section of the city, but still very walk-able to many locations. The lobby has a bar, and a small club attached. The room was small, but fine for just the pair of us. We werent in the room very much anyway. Valet parking was easy, and didnt take too long to retrieve... More

Stayed at the W on Lex for 4 nights and overall it was adequate. Unfortunately, my first interaction with staff at this hotel left a lot to be desired. Arriving after 25 hours of travel from Australia, I was curtly informed I could not check-in as the room was in my husband's name and he had not arrived yet. There... More

Although I have lived in NYC in the past, I sought help from Lauren and Patrick as to what was new and interesting. They were both very helpful! We also took a day trip and used valet everyday and found them organized and very polite. Of course the rooms are small but it is the big apple and we just... More

Wonderful, great, awesome, I will never have enough word to describe my experience in that hotel. I arrived early so my room wasn’t ready. I was ready to wait but they moved me to a better one without any additional charges! And boy it was a great room. Big, clean, modern, and the view was stunning. Loved the food in... More

Clean, comfortable and excellent customer service. Checked in early, complimentary upgrade and late check out accommodated. Housekeeping, phone answering and front desk staff very friendly. Great location for getting around the city- would definitely stay again.
