The location of the W Union Square is what keeps me booking there over and over. It is a treat to walk out of the lobby and be in Union Square with the farmer's market, restaurants, shopping, the Subway, movie theaters, a great stepping off spot to walk anywhere you want in the

Just got back from my second stay here. Really great hotel! All the hotel rooms in NYC are on the small side bc real estate is so expensive but not every hotel in NYC has a friendly helpful staff - they're great! Plus this neighborhood is perfect. Amazing shops and restaurants,

I really liked this hotel and my view of the Freedom tower was lovely. The room was a decent size, and very clean, the bar in the hotel was lovely - unfortunately we had to leave too early to take advantage of breakfast. Will stay here again.

What are the room amenities i.e hair dryer, fridge etc?
The room had a television, clock radio, and a hair dryer. Our room had a refrigerator, but I had requested one when I made my reservation. So in other words, a refrigerator is not a standard amenity in a guest room. You can request a refrigerator, but do it early. They do not have enough portable refrigerators for every room in the hotel.

Like everyone said, it's about a 30 minute walk. It sounds long but it's a scenic route. There's always so much going on so before you know it, you're there. If you want to get there quick, honestly, avoid cabs. Try the subway. You can take the N, R, or Q (Yellow line) to Time Square.
