The W is directly across from and overlooks the construction site for the Ground Zero memorial. You've likely seen news coverage (esp. NBC) where the news anchors were on a glass-fronted balcony perched above the site - that's the W. My room was a typical W - lots of white but very nicely sized for Manhattan. The bar on the lobby level looked like a typical meat market - it was dark and difficult to get an order. I finally gave up! The outside bar would have been perfect but it closed way-y-y-y-y too early. The concierge staff was very helpful and the Acura Experience free car service to deliver you to your appointments was much appreciated.
