Our daughter had to have surgery in New York City and we had the pleasure of staying at the W Hotel New York. We could not have asked for nicer accommodations. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff was welcoming, attentive and compassionate. The location is perfect and in the heart of everything New York City has to... More

This was our second visit to this hotel and we were happy to return. The reception "livingroom" had been newly decorated and looks beautiful! After a Friday evening 3 hour flight delay we arrived and were greeted by the delightful Carmen. Her pleasant demeanor reminded me to let my vacation begin in a wonderful W way and put the delay...

First, when we got the key, it was not activated so we had to go back. We booked a room with paid upgraded under category of "wonderful" - supposedly have a nice view. However, when we went in we could not see anything but the back of another tall building and a narrow alley so we wondered it was the... More

Pros: *W Hotels are always a guarantee *Great location, super close to Grand Central Station and not as congested as the "W" on Times Square. *Good restaurants around it. I would recommend to have dinner at Rockefeller Plaza. It's very close to the hotel. Cons: *Rooms are way too small *Coffee makers are not in the room, you have to... More

W HOTEL at Lexington Avenue is located in the perfect place. You can actually go everywhere on foot and of course the central stations is just around the corner. Modern and relaxing, minimal and chic offers luxury clean rooms with a view of the city. The bar which is located in the ground floor is one if the bets bars... More

Overall, this remains the cheaper W in NYC and a reasonable option if the location is convenient to where you need to go, or if you prefer the Starwood / W brands (as I do). The rooms are smaller than other NYC Ws; the gym is a mob scene in the 6 and early 7 o’clock hours (you will wait... More

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights last week. It is a nice hotel and is in a good located. Subway stops just 2 blocks away! Beds are comfortable and rooms are nice....small but you are in NYC after all! Our room did not have a view, so I would definitely request one if that is important to... More

Have stayed at several W properties in the US and am used to the small rooms of design hotels. What was a bad surprise during my recent stay at W New York was how ran down the room was, some upholstery was torn, carpet stained. In addition I was put in the 3rd floor and there was some renovation going... More

I stayed at the W Hotel for a one night business trip and was not overly impressed with it. The décor of the hotel appeared to have a “was trendy last decade” vibe and lacked any personality or excitement factor. The bedroom was simply decorated in a typical “modern” style. The bathroom showed more of the age of the building,... More
