I recently spent 1 night at the W while attending an event in Hoboken. I regularly journey to Hoboken and typically stay in either Weehawken or Jersey City as you get a little more bang for your buck. I decided to give the W a shot as I have walked by several times and it seemed nice. Check-In was a breeze. Starwood hotels never disappoint in the customer service aspect. I had a City View Wonderful Room and it was just that. Nice view of lower Manhattan and very spacious. Much more than you get across the river. The lobby bars were great for a drink before heading out. I didn't get a chance to try the restaurant but it was very busy. The location is great for a nice stroll along the hudson. Overall no complaints though I will most likely return to the Westin Jersey City or Sheraton Weehawken. Both as new/updated as the W and usually half the price.
