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.

Anniversary getaway

The hotel is near the subway, great restaurants near by. The hotel is modern but the rooms are extremely small, and the matress smelled bad.

Couldn't have asked for a better stay

Will not stay anywhere else in New York City, arrived to my room which was upgraded as a surprise for my anniversary, step inside and had a bottle of champagne and strawberries compliments of the general manager and [...] (manager at the W)Staff was very accomodating and friendly, chatted with some of them extensively and they seem to enjoy genuinely what they do.Slept in a few days, and staff would somehow still find the time to come in clean the room daily when we had left.Everything was stocked well (toiletries, towels, etc...)The lounge and bar downstairs is a great little hang out spot.Overall, the staff made the experience amazing, great locale and ambiance. Would recommend.

Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

The Comic Strip between 81/82 was great, was lucky enough to grab 2 tickets for 20 dollars (each one is usually 25). Great comedians, and was surprised when Louis CK stopped by and did a set unannounced!

Can't get any better than this!

We were all over the city! The hotel was located almost near all the great places. If not, it was a short cab ride anywhere! Museum of Modern Art was so fascinating! I don't have any complaints, the staff was great and accommodating. I would definitely go back!
