“Very nice stay at W Hoboken”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

I recently spent a weekend at W hoboken with my wife and we had a great time. The hotel is nicely located on the waterfront with splendid views of the Manhattan skyline. The rooms are reasonably big and nicely appointed. The room could use better soundproofing as we frequently heard people in adjoining room which made sleeping difficult for my wife.

The hotel is walking distance to the path so it's easy to get in an out of the city but be warned the train can be very crowded on weekends. We opted to take a taxi back to the hotel to avoid the congestion.

Everyone in the staff was helpful and friendly. We didn't eat at the hotel but if there was one thing to improve would be service at the bar. It was very slow even though there was barely anyone else.

This is a 4 or 5 star hotel. The view of Manhattan are outstanding. The room has a floor to ceiling window and very wide. Ask for a room on the uptown side and your view area from Chelsea all the way uptown. The views of downtown are the entire financial district of lower Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty. Both are great views. I was on the 12 floor but there are no obstructions about the 6th floor. New construction is starting on the south side of the building but as yet no issues.

The staff is extremely friendly and very accommodating. The room is very nicely decorated with a very roomy and equally decorated bathroom. The only disappointment was the hairdryer. While functional, is was a small travel type hairdryer. For the price of the too and reputation of a W, you would expect more.

Other than that small issue, I would high lightly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: If you have a preference on a view. Tell them you want an uptown view or downtown view.

My family had such a wonderful experience at the W. We were upgraded to a huge suite with amazing views of the city and the service was spot on. We loved all of the little extra they provide including the amazing Bliss products in the room. The location is ideal for families and getting into the city was a breeze using the PATH train. It’s only about 3 blocks from the hotel. The W staff was very helpful and went out of their way to make out stay memorable. I’d highly recommend this hotel and cannot wait to go back. I big thank you to Pedro and Lori!

Ok its across the river with a wonderful view of NYC and easy access to the Big Apple. Your paying for location more then quality of the hotel. Wanted to pay less and willing to stay in NJ too do it. Just didn't live up to price and having to pay additional for parking.

We returned from a special family birthday celebration to NYC.

Cannot praise the hotel, staff or location high enough. The hotel is immaculate, rooms are very clean and high quality. Staff couldn't do enough for you. The location is brilliant for the PATH into Manhattan.

Brilliant!!!

Hoboken is a treasure - I don't think I'd ever stay in NYC again. My "commute" into the city was 10 minutes door to door. The W is located just a few blocks from transit. Everything you could possibly need is within walking distance. Awesome Cuban restaurants. I was upgraded to a corner room on the 14th floor where, I guess it's pet friendly. I have dogs so I didn't care - no smells or weird stains. Also, I came on a Monday so there were zero noise issues. My view was breath-taking. OMG. Probably the best view...maybe ever? W Lakeshore and W SF almost pale in comparison. I hate running, but it was so gorgeous that I went around the water & through central Hoboken area. Very flat and easy.

The food was also very tasty! Even chicken salad...which is never tasty. As always, service is flawless.

One star off for charging for internet - COME ON people, it's 2013. You don't pay the 9.95 per night - for multiple nights, you get a discount...(yay?).

Tip:
Sometimes, if you want an upgrade, just ask for a room with two beds.
Go Green for 500 points is awesome

Stayed just for one night on a staycation and this hotel did not disappoint. I had stayed here in early April 2013 when I was transitioning to my new job, and I found out then that the hotel staff was incredible, as I had to do some last-minute booking when my new apartment wasn't yet ready. That made the choice for this staycation a no-brainer. W hotels do everything right, and with style; the W Hoboken is certainly no exception. From the decor in the lobby, to the chic rooms (had a Wonderful room), they really got it right. The personnel are extremely friendly and helpful. The only thing I would appreciate is if they indicate what the hotel's amenities are upon check-in.
During my August visit, I was there on a Friday night, but was on the 15th floor, so I didn't hear any noise from the lounge, and fortunately didn't hear any loud guests who were arriving late from partying.
The hotel is located about 3 blocks from the Hoboken PATH station, which is right next to the bus depot for NJ transit. Because it's right in Hoboken, there are tons of restaurants within walking distance, so I have never eaten at the hotel. It's about 10 miles (maybe even a little bit less) from Newark airport (EWR). W Hoboken is located right on the Hudson, with an absolutely stunning view of lower Manhattan; the Freedom Tower is stunning to look at in the evening when it's lit up. Has the best view of Manhattan.
Will definitely be returning, even if it is for another staycation.
