... earner now in this neck of the woods. Jared pointed out the Federal Reserve Bank, he told us that 20% of the world's gold is stored here. Australia, New Zealand, England, France etc. all sent there gold to the USA when war broke out with Germany, they were afraid that if they lost the war then Germany would not only claim their country but their gold as well. That gold is still kept in America, Jared mentioned something about one of the Die ...
... answer to Ryanair. Spirit are actually worse than Ryanair, which may be hard to believe, as they actually charge for carry-on luggage (a crazy fee of $35 each way, and that's the cheaper option of paying online in advance). Though we'd been warned off the airline, there was nothing to complain about - boarding occurred on time, flight left early, and it took less time than we thought. Arriving into LaGuardia at nine in the morning, it was fairly simple to grab a ...
... some yummy peanut butter chocolate pie that was FABULOUS!!!! OK, enough about my meal. The next day we went to the American Museum of Natural History which was very interesting. We saw dinosaurs and animals from different places and we learned tons. It was also the same museum where Night at the Museum was set! Not all of the characters were there, but the museum was huge ...
... under the bedside table and saw a ring but funnily it was someone else's wedding ring! That was so surprising. I was panicking too - did I mention that? Eventually when I picked up the backpack I had placed on the desk, the ring slipped free. Thank goodness!!! I hadn't seen it before because the ring was caught in my backpack so when I shifted the bag around, the ring moved and hid with it until ...

Historical Traveler Reviews St Giles Hotel - The Court New York New York City
W - The Court, simply spectacular!
Stayed at the W Hotel - The Court over this Easter weekend and wow! The hotel is excellent, probably the best l've stayed at in New York. My "spectacular room" was actually that, spectacular, it was huge - it had a walk in closet! The hotel bar was cool (although the drinks were expensive) the restaurant (icon) was excellent, and the service for our group dinner on the first night was top class. All the staff were so polite and very helpful.... l don't think l will ever look to stay anywhere else in New York but The Court hotel.
My birthday weekend
i'd like to thank everyone who wrote reviews as on looing at them we decided to stay in w the court for my birthday feb 29 04 well what can i say but WOW the hotel was fantastic , the rooms were fab large .clean and what a view we had of empire state ,ask for a room not on the main road.As someone put on the review we registered on the starwood site to become a starwood preferred guest and got upgraded immediately to a spectacular room .the staff could not do enough for us and was very personal. I would recommend this hotel or any w hotel. We also went to look at union square w that also looks fab and staff were great there too
Just got back from NYC - spent three nights here due to a "3 for the price of 2" night deal.
An Expirence to Remember
My family and I just came back from the W Court hotel. It is in the PERFECT location! When we arrived, there was someone to help us with our bags. The lobby is very posh! At first, they told us we reserved a Wonderful Room, but with 4 people, that doesn't make sense. We booked an Urban Suite with our reservations months prior. At fist, there were going to charge us. I talked to the manager and she took away the charges, and our bell boy gave us a breakfast voucher to ICON, their restaurant, for the inconvinence. Day after day, the service was fantastic. When my family comes back to NYC, we will definetly stay at this hotel.
I've read these ads and always thought of the poor souls whom would write them must have experienced some HORRIFIC event that was only directed at them - but MAN, was I wrong.
Love the W New York Court!
I stayed here for four nights in September 2003, and I loved this hotel! Like the W Times Square, where I stayed in February, the W Court is extremely stylish, but much more intimate and friendly than the Times Square hotel. The bed is wonderfully plush, the bath accessories are by Aveda, and the DVD/VCR combo is great. The rooms are huge by NYC standards, and my corner room had a great walk-in closet. The staff is friendly and helpful, especially the concierge. The location is good - close enough to Times Square and Fifth Avenue shops to walk, but much quieter.
Wonderfully stylish and convenient!
We stayed at the W Court for three nights at the end of August. The room was great...clean, more than enough space, and the bed was like a slice of Heaven, the service was extrememly helpful and curteous, and the location was perfect...three blocks from Grand Central. If you're looking for a hip nightlife scene, this wouldn't be the best location unless you're willing to cab it. But the bar/restaurant Saga across the street is awesome...great food/drinks served late! I would definitely stay there again.
I stayed at the W Court for one night. The service was wonderful. The room was spacious and nicely decorated. Very modern. I had originally reserved a "Wonderful" room which I think is basically a standard room. I went to the Starwood website which the W is a part of and signed up as a member. I then called the hotel directly and told them that I was a Starwood Prefered Member and had them upgrade my room. They did at no extra cost !! I then received the "Spectacular" room, which was great. Call the hotel directly because when I tried calling the Starwood 800 number, they told me they could only do upgrades upon availabilty at check in. I suggest that if you plan on staying there, you sign up the starwood website or go to the hotels website.
Modern & SOOO comfortable
This is a great hotel hidden smack in the middle of Manhattan! Spotless rooms, delicious mini-bar, LARGE rooms for NYC, and absolutely lavish modern decor--you could shoot a movie in these rooms! The gym is to die for, obviously made for people serious about their health w/ elliptical machines & CNN! Attached on the ground floor is a hip little night spot, and the staff looks like they fel out of GQ. All in all a lux living!
Very nice hotel--exceptional service! - I spent 4 nights at the W in November 2002. It was my first visit to New York and after much Internet research my three friends and I decided on the W (court). First room we were given was very small and not too impressive.. the doorman helped my 3 friends and I to get an upgrade to a very nice suite at no charge!- The concierge went out of her way to give us suggestions on places to go and made our stay comfortable and enjoyable. We even ran into George Clooney!!---All hotel staff was very friendly--particularly the male staff!! I especially enjoyed the VERY comfortable beds (we had two Queen sized beds- one was a sofa bed) and the Aveda products in the bathroom added a nice touch!- I would recommend this hotel to anyone that wants to enjoy NY in a pretty laid back atmosphere.
