The hotel has a swag lobby, great views, and overall amazing staff. this hotel never disappoints with the quality of everything from the bedsheets to the bar. I've stayed for business and pleasure, and would stay again every chance I get!!!

My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary in grand fashion last weekend and we didn't ever have to leave the building. We started out by valeting our car without knowing if there was availability in the W hotel. The valet gladly held our car up front while we checked in. The front desk gave us the best room available... More

Checking in to the hotel we could tell there was a unique vibe about it. We were greeted with "adult" root beer floats with root beer vodka. It was an interesting start for sure. I would say the hotel is very nice, our room was beautiful, very modern and very quiet. The negatives for us were, wireless internet was extra,... More

Great location in a historic building in downtown. Definitely catering to the younger crowd, the lobby's atmosphere felt like an extension of the nightclub that is just to the right of the entrance. Low lumen neon lights and electronic music throughout the lobby definitely helped create that atmosphere. The location is walking distance from pretty much everything in downtown. We... More

This place is high energy, with a lot of different lounges, bar areas, and comfortable. Close to a lot of downtown attractions, and in a good area. Parking is available, but there is public parking in a few close locations (one is right across the street, just google map it). Hell's Kitchen is very close for good food and live... More

We used the W for our first and last night of our vacation. Both times it was great. We had a corner suite with a spacious bathroom and a more than perfect bed. A good AC system and a really nice selection of refreshments in the minibar. We had a nice drink before we went to dinner in the bar... More

The lobby seems like a scene from a bad horror film or a rave, with loud music and strange lighting. The rooms are quite nicely laid out and have wonderful walk-in showers. The color schemes, however, are mostly black and gray, so it's starkly modern rather than warm and inviting. The staff was friendly, courteous, and helpful. Because of the... More

The W Foshay is a clean hotel with friendly staff. I booked the "cool king corner room" but was underwhelmed that there was anything "cool" about it so I would not recommend paying extra for this type of room. View was of a rooftop but the Bliss products in the bathroom made up for it. I would recommend it but... More
