Fantastic location

Loved this place. You can walk all over Manhattan from this lovely hotel which is a few mins away from the Chrysler building. It takes 10mins to the Rockerfeller Centre and a little longer to Times Square. Room was clean and the bed so comfy and warm. Refreshing shower with Bliss products provided. Ironing board, iron and hairdryer all provided. Nice lobby lounge/bar with free wi-fi. (Funky cocktail bar attached). Concierge v helpful. I would stay here again have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

"W - Well done!"

Great service and at check-in the front desk clerk upgraded us without us even asking. The location was perfect for us and we enjoyed the late night atmospere at Whiskey Blue.

W New York - great place to stay

Great hotel experience. Room was adequate for the needs of 2 people - staff friendly and attentive. Check in is very easy. Location is great, close to subway and buses - NYC hopon hop off tour bus stop directly across the street

Great hideaway (now and then)

The W prides itself on style, which makes the hotel a great place to stay. From designer bath products to juicy apples in the gym, to the Whisky Blue bar downstairs, everything has a fashionable touch. The staff is very helpful, trying to offer personalized service where they can. That said, this comes at a price. Food and drink are very expensive even by New York standards and, if you overlook the trendy trappings, the rooms are quite small and basic. My main gripe was the cost of Internet service.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

You're right in the heart of things. You're just a few blocks from the Japan Society, which often has interesting exhibitions. Or it's a doable walk to Times Square.

Hotel, great, room itself, merely good

Convenient midtown-east location. Staff is very nice. Everything was smooth. Bar and lounge was nice, complete with obligatory over-priced drinks. Room was of course small and there was a big not terribly attractive nor quiet heater/ac unit in there, but if you're using the room mostly for sleeping and maybe lounging in the morning, it's perfectly fine.

Not the best location but otherwise good

All of the extras (room service, drinks etc) at the hotel were quite pricey - but this was expected. Be sure to avoid touching ANYTHING on the minibar unless you want to pay for it- It was pressure senstive and very expensive. We accidentally racked up $100 worth of charges. Staff were very helpful and removed the charges. With the exception of one specific evening concierge, staff were reluctant to make recommendations for reasonably priced restaraunts, bars etc. It seemed that they were only familiar with expensive, downtown locations. Hotel was close to the subway and walking distance from many attractions. Room was small but clean. Bliss toiletries were fantastic. Shower does not have a door - expect to get the bathroom a bit wet with every shower. Bathroom door did not lock. TV was often unwatchable due to digital glitches. Bed was very comfy. View from room wasn't great - we looked into a parking garage. In future, we would probably not stay here since there was very litte of interest in the direct vicinity of the hotel. The area seemed to be more of a financial district. Though as mentioned, it was a short subway or walk to areas of interest.

Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

Just a few subway stops away (or a quick and cheap cab) is the Lower East Side. Would highly recommend this area for dinner and drinks if you don't want to spend a ton of money. Young and very mixed crowd. Check out Pianos for drinks.

W - Great Hotel - friendly staff

The hotel was located near Grand Central Station, which made it easy to attend the U.S. Open Tennis 2010. We took subway #7 to Flushing Meadows Station, which brought us to the entrance of the stadium.

Great fresh cooked breakfast at the nearby Metro Cafe - located nearby - 5 minute walk at the most. Inexpensive menu - good food.
