We have stayed at the W many times and have always had a great room with a lovely Park view. From the apples and coffee at the front desk for weary travelers to the comfy beds, we consider the W a good bargain in pricey Manhattan.

Fab hotel situated in arguably the best neighborhood in NYC. Well run hotel situated right in the heart of Union Square near great shopping and restaurants. Quiet rooms with high ceilings and modern amenities. Our room on the 14th floor faced south with clear views of the freedom tower and lower Manhattan. Fresh from a recent facade facelift and living...

We were pleasantly surprised with the size of the room, really big compared to most hotels in Manhattan. A king sized bed, desk, food center, and still plenty of room. The bathroom was big and clean. Great price, great location.

Before you read on: I was at the W Union Square twice for business over the past weeks. I am a 29-year-old business traveler, appreciate a good sleep and effortless experiences, and am normally quite easy to please.

Perfect place to use as a base to tour the city. They made us feel very welcomed and we loved the "whenever whatever" button on the phone. Always met our needs quickly.

Excellently located hotel with all that you need for a stay in NYC. The hotel is out of the rat race of Time Square and surrounds, and close to excellent cafes, restaurants and bars. Rooms are large by NYC standards. The bathroom whilst renovated is a little 'old style' - basin and shower over bath. Check-in and out was efficient...

This hotel is suited to people who enjoy going out on the town. The downstairs bar is nice and the hotel location is central to everything in Manhattan. If you want to grab food or water, there is a whole foods on the square, several drug stores, and many restaurants within walking distance.
