Being a Travel Agent i thought i would add my views on my recent stay at the W New York ! I have been to New York several times and have stayed in Hotels ranging from 3 to 5 star so with the 4 star rating Virgin Holidays give the W my expectations were high.The lobby area is beautiful and very,very busy after dark as it seems most of New York pops in for a drink after work ! We were allocated a room on the 16th floor in one of W's "spectacular" rooms i was really concerned about the room size after reading the reviews on here as the whole point of the trip was to take advantage of the weak $ against the £ and do my Christmas shopping so we had taken 2 huge cases !! Anyway when we stepped out of the lift on the 16th floor i was shocked how dark the corridors were and actually how depressing it felt.On entering our room i was happy to see it was far from small there was plenty of room and the view was decent too...however ....it was so dark the lighting was very poor except in the bathroom which was fine.The carpet was dirty i have to say but apart from that just fine and i didn't plan on spending my 4 days sat in a Hotel room anyway ! I found the staff very friendly and the whatever,whenever service on the front desk was excellent the staff really knew their stuff ! In summary it depends what your going to New York for ! The W is for the hip and trendy the decor,lighting etc is all to try and create that cool look ! The staff were excellent the room a good size,bar prices about average for a 4* Hotel ($10 for a white wine $7 for a beer) and the location just fantastic everything is on your doorstep.Yes its pretty dark in the rooms but do you go to New York to sit in your room 24 hours a day ? If your in your 20-30's looking for a hip Hotel with a great bar area in a central location go for it ! otherwise look else where there are plenty of fantastic Hotels in New York !!
