Fabulous Modern Hotel

We had a very good experience at the W. The room was very clean. The staff could not have been any nicer. I did not come in contact with anyone that was not polite. Our concierge was wonderful. We had questions for him at least 3 times a day and he was never annoyed! The location was good. If you are looking for a lot of bars and nightlife surrounding you this would not be your first choice. It is a little quiet (for NY)! Only negative thing I would say is that the rooms are a little small but I had read about that in the reviews.

Great NY experience

Went to New York with the gf for 3 days to pretty much go to all the touristy places. The W hotel on 49 and Lexington was very centralized in a nice location in Manhattan. The hotel was really nice and so was the staff. Rooms were smaller than what we are used to in Miami but from my understanding so are most of the hotels in NY but we did not think it was a big deal. The subway was 2 blocks away which we used for pretty much everything and there were a few breakfast places within the same block that were also pretty good. My overall experience was great.

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

If you are staying for 3 days or longer, I would recommend the weekly subway pass that costs 30 dollars per person. Can be used as many times as you want (with a wait time of 18 min apart which should not really affect anyone) and it'll probably save you some bucks in the long run.

Hotel located near everything!

This is a great hotel to stay in. The room was clean, the hotel was very modern and the staff was nice. I do however thought the person they hired to help you obtain a cab outside was quiet rude but other than that great experience. The hotel was near 5th avenue, Rockefeller center and Madison square garden.

Overall stay was good. The location is really good for shopping near time square. I liked the room, but didn't liked the fact that you can hear the noise from the hallway.

A fantastic stay

Having stayed at W hotels around the US at around Manhattan, I can attest that this one provides an excellent balance of W style and amenities with affordable pricing and a great location. It's not as flashy or expensive as the Time Square W, yet is located close to everything you may need and offer a fantastic value for guests.
