Why? Well it is in a great location that's true. It is well presented - true. But it could be better with a few simple changes. Like moving the toilet roll holder. Who wants to sit on a toilet sideways to avoid the loo roll. The gym is a token. Needs some better kit in it. Tea/coffee in the room... More

The hotel was extremely nice although my room was very small, this is to be expected given the fact that the hotel is located the financial district. Within walking distance of the world trade site, Brooklyn bridge and battery park which was a huge plus. The staff was very friendly and the room was clean. I would recommend this hotel... More

A well located hotel in Union Square, close to good cafés and eateries. Easy walking distance to Central NY along Broadway. Very easy to get a taxi into the city, very helpful staff, and large clean rooms with free wifi.

I love W hotels. My first experience was with the W Times Square three years ago and on this particular trip we stayed at the NY Downtown location. It was amazing. So glad that the 911 Memorial Garden and Freedom Tower are complete because three years ago they were not. Although there is still a lot of construction going on... More

I had a great view of the World trade Memorial gardens from the 11th floor. It was my first time to New York and I had hesitated on booking this hotel in the Financial District but can safely say I am glad I did. There are lots of good restaurants nearby, Tribeca not too far and good subway access. The... More

Really enjoyed staying here! I had to check-in early for an event and my room wasn't ready but since I had recently signed up for their rewards programs, they upgraded my room to a beautiful corner room overlooking the World Trade Memorial. The beds were the best I've ever slept on while away from home. Really did feel like sleeping... More

Great location next to Freedom Tower and a close walk to everything downtown. Tribeca is not too far as well. The classy lobby is on the fifth floor and most rooms have a good view of downtown and some of the waterfront. My fabulous corner room was adequate and big enough for NYC, my gripe would be the bathroom door...... More

The W near Wall Street with its splendid terrace overlooking the WTC is a destination for business or pleasure. The room was cozy but huge windows opened it to skyscraper views. Amenities included down comforters, bathrobes, and wifi along with a spacious glassed shower. There were complementary copies of the Times and fresh coffee or herbal teas in the morning.... More

Very nice hotel with an exclusive downtown atmosphere almost borders on pretentious but not quite. Lovely location across from World Trade Center memorial pools and museums. Easy walk to battery park city and attractions. My one gripe is the unisex bathrooms on concierge level-- needs more constant upkeep-- good bar location...would definitely recommend.

Used to quality of W hotel, this one is no exception. The quality of the service is truly good. The personnel were really nice and professional. I got Upgraded and as an SPG Member can’t thank the direction enough for that gesture. I really appreciated that and so did my girlfriend. There’s a spa, a pool, that was really relaxing... More
