What a beautiful hotel! We stayed for one night for a concert. Our room was fabulous, and everything was very classy. A great hotel, will definitely be staying again. The area was also very convenient

My husband and I chose to celebrate our anniversary in NYC and we were not disappointed. The W Union Square is a wonderful hotel. The location is perfect. There's the Union Square Greenmarket, which we enjoyed as well as the surrounding shops and restaurants. We had our anniversary dinner at Irvington, the restaurant at the W. The food, staff and...

Stayed here with my 18 year old daughter. The location was convenient to downtown and there were many great restaurants options nearby. The entrance is under construction and the lobby is quite small but our room was s comfortable size with a nice view of the east side.

I love this hotel - love the location, the public areas of the hotel and when you get a Mega, Fabulous or Cool Corner - there is just nothing better. The reason for my poor rating is the hotel's continuing record of not adequately recognizing Starwood's most frequent guests. I'm a lifetime platinum member with an ambassador - meaning over...

The very elegant 1911 Beaux-Art building overlooking Union Square Park surrounded by very good restaurants and bars. My favourite is Pete's Tavern, (oldest in NYC) Republic (tasty,yummy Asian fare) and Coffee Shop for breakfast and late night fare.... More

Very cool place, right across the street from Union Square and everything that happens there. There's a great bar scene in the lobby bar and the fruit-infused ice water at the reception desk is the best I've ever had (there was almost an entire fruit salad in the container - yum!).
