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

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

I bid this hotel on priceline, and was a little scared of what I would find. It was better than expected, the room was not so small, as I read in the reviews. it was clean, modern, great bed, great washroom and supplies. The view from the hotel was creepy, in a (kinda) backyard, it was really dark, I thought... More

The standard room was small with modern furnishings and a comfortable bed. It was hot outside and the AC was very noisy. The gym is acceptable, but nothing special. The internet wasn't particularly fast. The hotel is in a good location in mid-town.

This was a great location for attending the NY Gift Show. They have a special rate for the show and it's a pretty good value. The room layout was a little odd--most of the reading light was on the side of the bed opposite where one person would be. But, again, the location was excellent. Found a great diner around... More

I stayed here as I'm a Starwood card holder and it's one block from my office. The location is pretty decent if you are a tourist and really want to be in midtown.
