This a very nice hotel with a great view from the rooms facing New York City. The location is great - close to restaurants, stores, etc. as well as Stevens Institute of Technology, and the Path train station. We liked staying here much better than staying in New York.

Room Tip: Obviously, rooms facing the city have an amazing view. See if you can get a higher floor.

We stayed her for a weekend in December to go into New York City.
The W has amazing views, great service and a delicious brunch.

It is expensive, but worth it.

We highly recommend to come here for a trip in NYC. Hoboken is nice to walk around also.

I'm a fan of most Starwood properties but the W Hotel - Hoboken sits at the top of the class. I've stayed at the W Hoboken approximately 30 times over the past three years and it is my "go to" hotel every time I am in NYC for business. The hotel is well managed, has an attentive staff and offes the best views of the Manhattan skyline - it's true, the best view of NYC is from New Jersey - the W Hotel. And yes, while the Hotel is in Hoboken, it is simply a short PATH train ride to Manhattan (either World Trade Center or up to 33rd Street). One recommendation I have is to book no lower than a Spectacular Room - that generally guarantees you a room closer to the river and ultimately a better view of the Manhattan skyline. Other than that, you can generally expect consistent service from a friendly team from the moment you arrive until the time you check out.

Room Tip: Book no lower than a Spectacular Room; you'll have a better view of the Manhattan skyline from...

I have been traveling for work or holidays for 20 years, have stayed in many hotels in several countries and have very rarely found such attention to detail. The W Hoboken is clearly a very well managed hotel.
We only stayed 1 night one of the Fantastic suites but it was enough to make us want to stay there again and make me write my first ever review on a website like this one.
The Fantastic suite is really a spacious 1 bedroom apartment with 1.5 baths and a nice balcony on the Hudson and with the incredible view of the Manhattan skyline right in front.
What most impressed us was the quality of the service from all the staff. The highlight was a call to room service at 1am to order in room breakfast for the next morning. The person taking our order sounded so friendly, professional and dynamic and even had details like asking if we also wanted a wakeup call a few minutes before breakfast, which we did. The 24/hours full restaurant menu room service is a great advantage and the breakfast food we had (which included fresh croissants, omelet and mascarpone waffle) was perfect. The in-room breakfast menu has so many great options each with detailed price so you can select exactly what you want and pay a fair price (no need to pay for a full buffet if you just want coffee and a toasted bagel for example).
The quality of the building itself as well as of all the materials, furniture and devices in the room provide a very nice feeling of comfort. Temperature management and sound insulation were perfect. Much better than many high-rise hotel buildings in the city where you can still hear the city noise and feel the wind passing through the closed windows.
Finally the decoration of the common areas and especially the room is elegantly discreet and functional. You can find almost anything you may need right in the room (including food, drinks, sweets and other convenient things like first aid and sewing kits, etc.) and the price tags are clear and fair. The hotel also offers a “Whatever whenever” service and also an “expert” in case you need help finding and booking any events in NYC or surrounding area.
You can easily walk 2 blocks to the PATH and Ferry to NYC or to the many nice restaurants and bars and riverside parks in Hoboken. The W Hoboken is definitely recommended for anyone visiting NYC or this area of NJ.

Room Tip: There are only 2 Fantastic Suites per floor. These have balconies directly on the Hudson right in fr...

This hotel was wonderful. I usually stay at the Westin brand, but needed to book this hotel at the last minute. I loved the quirky touches of the W, like the "Good Morning" mat in the elevator in the morning, the complimentary ear plugs and things to purchase like energy drinks and condoms. Even with the quirkiness, it is still elegant. The bar is very nice and relaxing. Service at the front desk was wonderful (they upgraded us, which is always appreciated). And, most importantly, the views of the city from this hotel are spectacular!!! We took the PATH into the city and it took a quick 20 minutes. I highly recommend this hotel for Hoboken or a visit to NYC.

Whatever, whenever!
The W hotel in Hoboken, New Jersey provided us with a wonderful stay!
Very close to Cake Boss bakery where I enjoyed the best cannoli ever!! Not to forget the LOBSTER TAIL!! Cake Boss was extremely busy over the weekend (2 hour line-ups!!) so if you are in the area during the week, I would highly recommend visiting on a weekday, in the morning!
The PATH subway station was close by which we took every day to go to Time Square - the fare ride was $2.5 which was super cheap and convenient! We also visited the New Jersey mall which was one stop off the PATH train from our hotel.
There are a few bars by the W hotel and pub style restaurants. CVS, Walgreens, Starbucks all walking distance so it was nice to have all your necessities accessible to us.
Bliss Spa also available at the hotel!
Definitely would stay here again!
