Booked W hotel without doing adequate research on Trip Advisor. The hotel is a very charming hotel, but I would consider it as a "boutique" property. The rooms were very trendy, clean, and the beds were superb. Although, the property was "fancy" and the staff were kind, it really was not the best choice for a family getaway. I found the prices extremely high even for a big city property. For example, we returned after a long day of walking with the children. As we entered the hotel, we made a quick pit stop at the lobby bar. My son, daughter, and their friends immediately ordered cold bottles of water. They opened them immediately due to the very hot August day, and the kind bartender stated, "would you like to charge the $30 to the room or pay cash"? Even my eight year old joked, $30 for five waters?? That evening we ordered room service. The service was exceptional, but the food was average at best. Two waters, two light beers, a grilled cheese, and chicken tenders in excess of $100. I would recommend that the W would be a great hotel for a couple to enjoy a romantic getaway, not set up for a family vacation.
