Love the lobby!! The rooms are small but comfortable. The guys at the door are amazing. It was a pleasure to meet Bekim who makes the W a special place. Please remember to check the bar, make sure to make reservations in advance. It was crowded the two nights I stayed at the W.

Usually I choose between the Hilton, Marriott and Sofitel chains, but this time we wanted to give Sheraton chain a try staying at this W hotel. Well, could not have regreted more. I thought W was supposed to be a posh Sheraton - it's not. Rooms are super small (even the king), decoration is simple and ugly. A/C makes an... More

I was impressed by the service and the room was well designed and cozy though small area. Great location and short walk to the high end stores. Catholic church is around the block only and Waldorf Astoria Hotel is right across the street.

the very first W Hotel to start and inspire a global brand this property first launched in 1998 and today stands firm representing the W Brand with its service, rooms and overall feel. While the brand evolves, those W'ers that explore the global branches will certainly notice that the newer W's certainly have a more cutting edge vibe, this hotel... More

Clean spacious rooms! The bliss spa 49 is awesome! A little strange with no windows but very clean and filled with products to use. The bar in the hotel does a great martini as well. We have stayed here multiple times. Great location near grand central (walkable) and great value.

Check in staff seemed disinterested and paid the bare minimum of attention for check in. The rooms are very small and the queen room actually contained a double bed. The air con was jet engine loud and instead of keeping an even temperature it only kicked in once the room got too hot to sleep in. So you would wake... More

The W Hotel was a nice clean, modern hotel in NYC. We arrived around 9:15 a.m. and I asked if it were possible for us to check in. The lady behind the desk looked and said she was upgrading our room, so she could check us in now. I was excited about what this upgrade may be, as I know... More

I stayed a the W New York for 2nights. I found a great deal on Hotwire. I'm actually moving to NY in September so I was apartment hunting. This was a great hotel to get back after a LONG, EXHAUSTING day of viewings. It's very central with good subway lines just down the block. Beds are fantastic, like most Starwood... More

Lovely hotel, great location, really comfortable beds, but our stay was completely overshadowed by the huge amount of tax & service charge on their room service.

We travelled as a family 2nd-6th July and I can't fault the W. Our family room was huge for a NY hotel room, and a birthday cake was waiting for our 13 year old's birthday. A fabulous touch.

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.
