If you venture to the heart of downtown Hoboken, your one and only choice for a hotel is the W. Located along the banks of the Hudson river, you can step outside and walk along the beautiful foot path that hugs the river and admire the fantastic views of NYC. A short two block walk in the other direction takes you to Washington Blvd., the main street of Hoboken that is lined with bars, restaurants, shops, little markets and Carlo's Bakery (The Cake Boss home).

I hotel staff was very friendly and professional. The room was clean and comfortable. The lobby and common areas seemed to be a bit dark but well presented. Since my room was on the 18th floor, I had no issues with the late night music coming from the clubs located on the hotel main floor and second floor.

My main disappointment and surprise was the price and the bill. Since this is the only hotel spot in the area, you are stuck paying $300 plus per night. That's just too much for what you are getting. There are much better value options on the other side of the river in NYC. However, the real bummer occurred when I noticed the charge on my credit card was higher than the bill that was slipped under my door. It turns out that the W decided to charge me for raiding the mini bar (which I did not touch) and for parking (I did not have a car). An unpleasant phone call with their accounting department was needed to clear this up. As a result, I score this property as "average" at best and advise future guests to check their credit card charges with the bill.

Wow! This hotel consistently exceeds expectations! First of all, the views of the Manhattan skyline are drop dead great! Additionally, at every point of contact,each employee provided amazing service. They conveyed a sincere interest in me as a guest. The bed was very comfortable with quality linens. I was treated to a wonderful upgrade as a Spg platinum member. I love this hotel!!!

I have stayed at this W hotel many times. They never fail to impress. They always know I am coming and they always have had an up-graded room available for me. It seems they actually look at their bookings and have an actual idea of where each will best fit. This time my reception and check-in was with Ashley. She was kind, courteous and professional. She found me an up-graded corner room. Always ask for the corner facing north. The view of New York City and Manhattan is killer.
This hotel has the location, location, location! Along with the NYC view it has an incredible waterfront. There is a park that fronts the new Freedom Tower and Trade Center 3 minutes from the front door. There is also a Million dollar children's play ground 3 minutes the other direction. This playground extends out into the Hudson River. Talk about spectacular, this is it.
The hotel itself is as beautiful as the surrounding area. The reception and bar/lounge area is beautiful, pleasant and relaxing.
From this hotel you can get to the Javits Center, Empire State Building, Times Square, the Trade Center Complex and all points NY and NJ. You can travel by car, ferry, limo and rail. You can choose over or under the Hudson river as your nerves allow.
This hotel has a great fitness center as well. Boo hoo, no pool.
Two blocks up the hill from the hotel is Washington Avenue. It is a beautiful street with hundreds of shops, restaurants and stores. The food ranks from ok to well prepared and worth it. Ok are the fast foods and worth it is Amandas!
Stay here if for no other reason than to stroll the miles of waterfront, watch the runners/bikers and look at Manhattan. Oh yeah, Hoboken may be the "fitness city" of the east coast.

Room Tip: Choose the north side corner suites.

This is probably the best hotel I've stayed at. Very friendly staff, clean, quiet, and good amenities what more can a guest ask for? We stayed here for a short trip around NJ, and this one caught our attention since it is near the water and has a view of New York across. Money for check in is well spent and their valet are very responsible and courteous.

The room we stayed in is very clean and spacious. I love that we had a view of NJ and NY, and not to forget the view is very beautiful at night time. The hotel is also very accessible to bars, restaurants, and stores. Everything about this hotel is perfect and worth it.

Room Tip: Higher corner rooms have the best view of Jersey/New york at night.
