I stay several weeks per year in New York. Discovering this new W-hotel last week was a pleasant surprise. The hotel is located close to 3 subway lines (1, R, 4+5 are within three blocks from the hotel), and very close to the ferry lines.
The people at this W exceed expectations, both in efficiency and genuine friendliness. The staff in the hotel is among the best I have encountered in my recent stays in similar hotels. They are friendly in a very genuine way. They made me feel at home from the moment I arrived here.
When I stayed here last week, some construction work at ground zero was taking place, but none of it affected the rest during the night. In day time, one can hear the noise of the workers, but not interfering with normal life.
The room I stayed in is very spacious, has lots of light and is - in W style - very nicely decorated. The hotel itself has a very cozy atmosphere. The lobby on the 5th floor is designed to create this great W-atmosphere.
The Sweat/workout has all equipment for a complete workout, and the BLT bar at the ground floor attracts not only hotel guests but locals from the nearby Battery Park as well. Great atmosphere: try the lobster ravioli!
To be short: I will be happy to stay here again any time soon.
