This hotel is really right in the middle of Times Square. Good for walking to many sites and within a couple of blocks of 3 subway lines. Pretty easy to go anywhere. That being said, it's pretty crazy in Times Square! It's always noisy and later in the day and evening there are people traffic jams! Overnight you continue to hear honking and sirens. Most nights it was ok, however the last night the overnight construction was a bit much! The room was small but nice and functional. Very modern. We were in a corner room on the 34 th floor and had a view of Times Square.
The hotel lobby is not particularly grand, on the 7th floor. It's quite dark and not particularly welcoming. But then again we did not spend a lot of time there.
We let the hotel know we were celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary. Everyone we met wished us a happy anniversary, we got an upgrade and they sent a bottle of wine to our room. Very nice touch!
We had dinner at the hotel restaurant - blue fin. It's reasonable and was quite good. For breakfast we went to the deli next door at the Edison hotel. It felt like a typical New York deli! Decent breakfast and reasonable price - especially for Times Square!
Next time I would go elsewhere just to visit different things and have more quiet, but definitely recommend the W if you want to be in the thick of things!
