I live in downtown NYC, but needed a hotel room for one night due to apartment move timing. The location is unbeatable - right at the corner of Union Square and across the street from a giant Sephora flagship store (huge plus for me) and all of the restaurants in the area, including fine dining like Union Square Cafe and...

The W Hotel on Union Square is one of those good properties that becomes excellent based on the quality of the staff.

The W Union Square is easily my favorite Starwood property (Sheraton, Westin, W, etc.) in NYC. The location puts the Flatiron, Village, and LES at your fingertips, and the Financial District and Midtown are also both within easy reach. Rooms are spacious, service is attentive, and crowds are small and manageable (unlike most midtown hotels).

NYC is not as crowded on July 4th weekend so it is a good time to visit the City. The W at Union Square is very nice and convenient to lots of good restaurants, the Subway, and, of course, the activities in Union Square such as the farmer's market. We also ran to and from the Brooklyn Bridge early a... More

2nd stay this year & I really think this is the most ideal family location for a trip to NYC. Great walkable area, good restaurants very close by (try ABC Cocina!) and Union Sq Park is a great green space to spend time outside. Free coffee in the lobby in the mornings is the bomb!

I booked on shorter notice than usual and the NYC room prices were a little higher than usual, but everything was great. When there was some early morning noise from work on the adjacent building, they moved and upgraded my room which was appreciated. I plan to return!

I've stayed at W Union Square about 6 times in the last 3 years because it is close to everything in Greenwich Village and easy to walk to the other fun areas in NY. Room is a decent size, Union Square has a great Farmer's Market, subway is a block away.

If you want to visit Manhattan make sure you book a room at the W Union Square. Very comfy beds, good sized rooms, and a fantastic, responsive staff. Also a great view of lower Manhattan from the higher floors. We always stay here when visiting my daughter at NYU. Highly recommended.
