It was my and my husband's first stay in W Downtown in March and it was awesome. The location was great - just steps away from great restaurants and a quick drive to midtown. We also got to the hotel within a 25-min drive from the airport, even tho we landed at midnight so there was less traffic. The service... More

Great experience. Stayed with friends for one night. Beautiful, immaculate room overlooking Freedom Tower. Considerate and helpful staff. With the DJ playing techno, the bar was chic and had the atmosphere of a club. Will certainly look forward to staying again.

I have stayed in New York several times, but moving forward the W Downtown will be my only destination of choice. I went to New York for a 4 day getaway and could not have picked a better location. We stayed on the 22nd or 21st floor in a corner room with a view of the Freedom Tower and it... More

Sleek and modern new hotel with great rooms and a streamlined aesthetic. Very comfortable bed and linens. Lovely view of the former World Trade Center or New York skyline. Very short walk to four different subway stations, so the location is extremely convenient. Super friendly staff.

Distinctly underwhelmed by my stay at the W Downtown. My room was very tired, bumps and scrapes all over the walls. The towel rail fell off the wall, and other 'facilities' in the room were unfit for purpose. On the plus side - the bed was comfortable. Given the vast array of competing hotels in the city I have no... More

Good location down by battery park and the freedom tower. Stayed for a long weekend with friends. Didn't try BLT on site but used the concierge to find good local places to eat nearby. It's a typical example of the W chain, urban/corporate/hip.

I recently stayed for one weekend night while traveling in the area. The hotel is right up next to the WTC site and does have a lot of tourists milling about. I thought the rooms were a reasonable size for NYC, had nice bathrooms (similar to other W's) and the room was surprisingly filled with light because it looks out... More

I was hesitant to stay downtown on a recent trip to NYC but prices are good downtown on the weekends and we love the W properties so we decided to go with the W downtown. (In fact the price was less than a Holiday Inn on the Lower East Side!) It was my first time at this particular hotel and... More

Very odd misses on my visit. The room service menu was out of date and both items I tried to order were no longer available. The TV remote was missing from the room. After reporting the incorrect menu, returned the next night to find the compendium was missing totally from the room. The room temperature remained very cold and the... More
