I've stayed at W's before and was never thrilled with the hospitality or room. I go to NYC often and decided to take a chance on a new location and the W based on the trip advisor reviews and was glad I did.The location is fantastic to explore Chelsea, Greenwich Village and Soho. Union Square was bustling with activity during... More

We just eloped to NYC! Best decision ever! As this was going to be a "big day" for the two of us, we have decided to stay somewhere close to the City Clerk's office. Union Square it was.

The W is in a great location, close to restaurants, coffee chops and shopping. Great bar and restaurant! Great hotel service. We had a room with a view of Union Square park. At night we sat on the window ledge and watch the city lights. Definitely will stay their again!

We stayed at the hotel for 5 nights while we were dropping off our daughter at college. The service was great - front desk, maid service, the living room, and the restaurant. We were upgraded to a nicer room when we checked in a few minutes early, and they accommodated everything we needed. Will definitely stay there again.

The hotel is fine. It's what you would expect from any W. In fact the rooms are large for an NYC hotel. My issue is the noise, the walls are thin and the doors are cheap so anything in the hallway sounds like its happening IN your room. All night and morning there are doors slamming, maids cleaning and talking,... More
