“Compact but great location”
Reviewed September 21, 2010

Enjoyed our stay once Latika changed our suite to one with a better layout. Bell hop really friendly and helpful. Great bar, whiskey blue. But there is no restaurant except for breakfast. Great fun hotel but look for offers before you book. Beware of very small rooms and tiny tiny bathrooms!

We went to NYC for our 30th Anniversary. Staying at the W Hotel was a wonderful experience! We used our Starwoods points for a two-night stay and upgraded to a "Mega Room" on the 14th Floor, corner room. (but be prepared it is still small) The room is contemporary minimalist... absolutely loved the lighting! The entire design of the W Hotel is quite interesting and low lighting everywhere. Very inviting feel and the Lobby bar is a great place to relax and unwind with a cocktail. We enjoyed breakfast at "Heartbeat"... delicious. The staff is friendly and helpful. This hotel is in a great location, directly across from the Waldorf Astoria. Don't forget to book a free ride at the "Acura Desk", they take you wherever you would like! Highly recommend the W Hotel, you won't be disappointed!

I had the best experience in my 20 years of business travel last week while I was at this hotel. Cindy the young lady that works at the front desk went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure my stay at the hotel was a special experience. I was so delighted that I intend on only staying at this hotel on each and every trip I take to New York city. Great job!

The sleeping arrangements were very comfortable, Nice atmosphere, the
staff was very helpful. I met Kimberly Rossiter in the lobby and I remember her as being very friendly and providing tips for things to do in NYC during our weekend trip. Security was extremely helpful in getting
tnings left behind. Location was great, all in all, a very pleasant stay.

I've been staying at the W on Lex for years on business (very convenient to all my clients/partners/investors in midtown). My last trip just highlighted how incredible the staff at the W is, especially my Janaina at the front desk. She, along with the whole front desk, management, doormen really brighten up my day every time I see them. There is always a nice note, bottle of champagne, and most important a smile and hug every time I get off a long flight to check in. If you can, make it a plan to stay here.

The W New York is the flagship W hotel. The rooms were small, but decorated very nicely and more importantly.....were clean. The hotel is right across from the Waldorf Astoria and the Intercontinental Barclay. It's within walking distance of grand central station and times square, but a cab/train ride away from the nightlife in the meatpacking district. The view was standard for NY, tall buildings, and a parking garage. I did not eat the food here or go to the Whiskey Bar, but the lounge and bar areas were always packed. The staff were very friendly. I would def. recommend this hotel if you can get a good deal...we were able to book here for $125/night through Priceline.

Lovely hotel. Modern hip comfy lobby. Nice bar. Great professional staff. Loved the bottled water when we checked in. Free wifi in the lobby. Our first room was on the small side, but well appointed and comfortable except for a strange smell. (maybe a pet accident?) Anyhow, went to reception to address the smell. Received a sincere apology and a new ungraded room which was a bit bigger than the first one and had two windows facing the street. Loved the room, lots of lighting options, ipod dock, bliss products and comfy bed. Great location - walked to almost everywhere we wanted to go or just a short cab ride away. Got a great rate for our stay and would stay again.
