Stayed here for business in room facing 1 world trade center. Great large room for a W in NYC, toiletries and shower solid. Decided to stay here vs the Conrad Hilton where meeting was & it was worth the cabs :) Pros -- Location (if you're doing the downtown stuff, or grab subway or cabs), Rooms, Views Cons -- typical...

If you are looking for a great hotel with great service and a fantastic view of the world trade site, look no further. Room was very clean and well stocked. The front desk was amazing. Loved it. Will recommend.

I was stay here for 2 days for business trip, the location of hotel is very convenience close to Battery park and WTC, the service wasn't good and bad at all. Free coffee in the morning at the lobby is great. As a SPG Member the Wi-fi should be free

I've stayed at W hotels before, but not this one. This hotel is very nice inside and the elevators are pretty quick. You end up having to take separate elevators to get to your room...one to get to the main lobby, then another to the rooms. The single bed room was fairly small, but I have had a lot smaller... More

We stayed at the "W" Downtown for 3 days sightseeing and it was the perfect catch! Very close to the metro station, many sights and the hudson river to go for a walk. The room had a great view to ground zero. All the rooms seem to have a good view, because the hotel is in the higher floors. Housekeeping... More

One of the best located hotels, with great service. The W design is strong in general areas but slightly dated in standard rooms, that are quite small. The W minibar does not loose its attraction. All extras very expensive, $18 for a glass of average house chardonnay is really the limit!

My stay here was great. I upgraded the room to a higher floor, more space and a beautiful view of the 911 memorial park. Well worth doing. The room was large by NY standards and very well laid out. The bench seat by the window was a relaxing place to sit. The bars are expensive (expected in NYC!) but the... More

I stayed for a night for business reasons. The front desk staff was not very welcoming or friendly. The room was on the west end of the hotel and oddly shaped because of the building shape, with a smallish bedroom and large bath. The hotel is trendy, but I agree that the rooms need better light and more counter space.... More

Great place to stay in the city and financial hub of the world . If your company is paying for the room then staying here is a no brainier as you can walk to your meetings and offices and then come back for a happy hour in the lobby bar. Free coffee for the morning and wifi is free in... More

Location: Great location if you want to be Downtown Atmosphere: Super clean, new and well laid out in every aspect from rooms to restaurant to lobby. Very beautiful. Customer service: Great. Everyone welcomes you and asks how they can help. Price: Over priced for the location. One night stay will run you well over $400. It's just not worth it.... More
