First, let me prefice this review with stating that I am not a big fan of W Hotels to begin with. I do like al of the other Starwood properties. I travel to New York quite often for work but this time we combined vacation and booked the only Starwood property available, The W Downtown. The area is horrible. Very morbid view of the WTC. Aside from that unless you are 20 years old and like to party, you will find no comfort in the overwhelming "disco" atmosphere. They try too hard to keep you in the lounge and create a social scene. I'm not there for that. The music is too loud also. The service is sub par also. We asked for a rollaway bed before we arrived, when we arrived and while we stayed. It never appeared. Even though we were told that it would. This is after we were promised 2 beds and received one King. Don't even try their restaurant. Bad service, cold coffee, eggs are cold and runny. We didn't bother going back for any other meal. The only convenience is the WTC, Downtown shopping, Wall St, Statue of Liberty. The rest of New York is a subway and a couple of transfers away. Use the subway. With the work they are doing and the extra security, taxis have trouble getting around. This is not a bad review. Like I said, if you are into the social lobby scene, this is great. I just want to spend time in the city and not the lobby.
