Having stayed at the W in Sydney and heard rave reviews about W New York, I was looking forward to my 4 night business stay at this reputed hip and trendy hotel. Unfortunately my stay lived up to that moniker with nothing more. I tried out 3 different rooms before I settled on one I thought I could put up with (I.e vaguely clean, an outlook other than a brick wall / air conditioning unit, no cigarette burns in the faux leather furniture, some natural light). The room was not at all the purported old school Hollywood glamour but more porn star tack. The staff however were quite attentive and the food surprisingly good. Private parties on 3 out of the 4 nights precluded me from enjoying the hotels best assets - the pool bar and club, and the unsafe locale left me feeling a little imprisoned. I'm returning to LA in a couple of months and I absolutely wouldn't come back.
