Location positive

Hotel was fine. Service in the cocktail lounge was lacking attentiveness. Music, although, lively was boring since it sounded like club music over and over again with no other more interesting mixes. Front desk staff was accomodating.

The W did not disappoint

Champagne in the waiting line of the reception was a nice touch and represented well the service at the W. The room was comfortable and the location of the hotel is good, in an area were most hotels are.

Great sleep

My husband and I took a weekend trip to NY to see our nephew in War Horse. We wanted to stay in the middle of all the action and W NY fit the bill. The room, although small, was tastefully decorated, very clean and full of pleasant amenities. Our Q bed was exceptionally comfortable, and I slept like a rock. The staff was courteous and helpful. I will defenitly make the W our first choice the next time we take the NY challenge.

Great "NYC" feel

The hotel was very trendy and cozy, almost felt residential. Mid ranged room was still small, like a city apt. Loved the location and the staff was outstanding. Liked it better than some of the huge midtown hotels that I've stayed at before. We received upgrades and unexpected complimentary items.

Excellent midtown business location

Sheek, small-sized W with cool bar scene at ground level. Direct across from Waldorf Astoria - good as long as UN is not in session. Retrofitted building so noisy heating/cooling. Wall outlets for laptop unreachable from desk. Unbeatable location.

despite upgrade to "spectacular" room, the room was quite small. Temperature regulation was erratic. Very contemporary decor, very upbeat lobby. Excellent staff. Great location..

W

The staff was very attentive & professional. The amenities were very nice. My only issue was one of room security. Some one entered our room & pilfered some of the in room snack items. When reported to hotel management they offered to allow us to move to a different room. However, at checkout we were charged for all of the snacks. When discussed with hotel manangement the charges were deleted. The hotel did the right thing; it was all just a hassle to deal with.
