Date of visit: Saturday, 19 April Location: right across Union Square. Of the 4 current W's in NYC, best location to bars of various neighborhoods, avoiding the touristy Times Square Looks: As you enter the main entrance, the party seeps out from the Living Room bar on your right. It's, as per usual for a W Hotel, dark and sexy.... More

The hotel definitely met standards of W hotels. We stayed for an extended weekend, and upon check in were given a great room with a fantastic view of the park. Although it was an upgraded room, we visited some other rooms and they held pretty good standards as well. The room layout was great (again, had a corner room with... More

I love the W hotels but was expecting more. The rooms are ok, service is good, staff is friendly. The elevator is the worse part of all. Takes too much to go up and down. Room service and food was pretty good, and the location is also nice. But as I said not enough for a W!

As W's go, this one is a bit lacking. My key gripe is service. My expectations of New York City hotels are low to begin with; the W Union Square met those expectations. Generally disengaged staff, the Whatever Whenever desk really puts the "whatever" into the job (didn't even look away from the computer screen when I started talking!), and... More

I've stayed in a number of W Hotels and this one certainly isn't the nicest or coolest one (W Santiago!), but the location can't be beat. You can walk to just about everything or a pretty short cab ride. The hotel itself is nice and clean, but doesn't have a ton of amenities (it does have a nice gym in... More

I have always wanted to stay here at the W Union Square Hotel and finally got my wish! My husband and I stayed in a "Wonderful" size room and it was spacious and comfortable.
