VERY GOOD LOCATION IN MANHATTAN

We spend a very good time in this hotel, people from the staff where very gentle with us (the concierge), informing and reserving special events and dinners. The room was very small, but they have a great gym.

Tiny rooms

The room was uncomfortably small (10' x 18'). There was no place to put our suitcases, to put my purse, to place toiletries in the bathroom. There was little clearance between the doublebed and the wall. The closet was very small. There was no bureau. The bathroom had no tub, and the shower was so small there was barely room to turn around. There were larger rooms in the hotel, but the manager refused our request to upgrade our room, apparently because we reserved our room through Orbitz. After the first night we switched to another hotel (Doubletree) for a much better room.

Romantic Getaway

We had a great weekend! Derran, one of the bellman was extremely helpful. Each time we needed a taxi he was able to secure one immediately; which was especially helpful Friday evening when it started raining just as we were leaving the hotel. Overall we had a great time and will return

Excellent Value in Midtown

We had a very pleasant experience. The room was small. but well appointed. Very comfortable bed with good linens. The front desk, concierge and bell men were all very helpful. The complimentary hard wired internet service and bottled Fiji water were unsolicited but welcome. And the bill was exact and produced promptly. Only a few minor inconveniences brought our rating from a 5 to a 4 - skimpy shower curtain, access card did not work initially in the elevators, etc... Overall, slightly below what one would expect from a 'W' hotel, but still an excellent value and good experience that would bring us back.

W New York...a great place to stay

W's are known for being trendy and New York that. The rooms are tight but they are well designed and impeccably clean. Amazing staff...the concierge (Laura) is a master in her craft. I would stay there again in a minute.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

See the WTC and then walk west to the Irish homestead in the park. Continue south along the Hudson on a beautiful river walk all the way to Battery Park if you like and take the free Staten Island Ferry for icing on the cake.

Midtown W - always well above average

I've stayed at this W for both business and pleasure. This time it was part of a birthday present for my son. He loved the hotel and the Yankees winning didn't hurt either.

Any average NYC pizza will be as good or better than you'll find pretty much anyplace else. Except maybe Cicago.
