      Historical Traveler Reviews W New York New York City

      Small room

      from

      Stayed at W New York on business trip. I'm 30, so I thought it wd be cool, trendy spot to stay. Definetely trendy, but INCREDIBLY SMALL (EVEN FOR NY STANDARDS). I didn't even have the smallest room type. Evidently, there was something smaller called the "cozy" room. Can't imagine. The bed in my room took the ENTIRE space. No dresser for your folded clothes. GLad I was traveling alone. The closet space was tiny! And the bathroom....luckily, I'm a very thin person. I had to squeeze into the bathroom because the door would not open all of the way due to the inside wall. On the good side, the bed is comfortable! But NOT worth feeling like you're living in a closet. (And I live in DC, so accustomed to cramped spaces, but not this cramped!!)

      Cool Hotel

      from

      Was pretty apprehensive after seeing the bad reviews here but had an excellent experience overall. The room was small but well done, with the (really comfortable) Queen bed's headboard in front of the entry to maximize space. It was done in wood and copper with a cutout to see through--very clever. Didn't feel cramped at all but two people would have had it a bit harder. Bath was very nice with a big pedestal sink and a curtained shower with good fixtures, water pressure and temperature. Everyone in the bar looked pretty normal to me and the staff always smiled and were helpful. Great location across from the Waldorf-Astoria with many nearby shops and cafe's. A 10 minute walk to Times Square. If you can get a good price (I was thrilled with the equivalent of $125 or so through a Priceline package) you should love it. One drawback, two of the four nights the in room coffee wasn't replenished--a detail that shouldn't go overlooked.

      Not up to the usual W standards

      from

      Stayed at The W New York this past January for 2 nights. Did not sleep at all the first night. Our room was pretty small and the bathroom smelled. It was also so hot in the room that we opened our window a crack. However, the noise from the street below as well as some sort of machinery (??) next door, kept us awake. Luckily, we did move to another room for the next night and did sleep.

      Fantastic Hotel

      from

      Started out on business trip then friend joined me for the weekend. Loved the hotel - the room had the greatest atmosphere - I'm a dump the bag and get back out on the street traveller, and this one had me actually relaxing on comfy bed and in comforting atmosphere. Spa is the greatest, and super prices for the city. We rolled out of bed on Sunday and down to spa and got full works. Lovely. Bar fun, tho a bit obvious. Room was quiet, peaceful, tho it was boisterous downstairs. I've stayed in all sorts of boutique (and non!) in NYC and this one I'll come back to again and again.

      Somewhat Disappointed

      from

      Stayed at the W in early April and left a little disappointed. In many respects it was just as advertised - taupe and stylish, but it also seemed crowded and loud.I think it depends upon what your priorities are: rooms are small and not that unique, but common areas were fun. Never went to the Whiskey Bar, but it was packed all the time.Staff was average. Didn't eat at the restaurant.All in all, I'd give it a 6. Don't feel any real urge to go back next time I'm in NYC.

      Not good for business travel

      from

      I stayed at the W on several occasions for business. While the bed is amazing, I was dissapointed with many other things. The rooms are TINY (even for New York), the bathrooms are dark and there is no counter space for your stuff. Also, they don't have bathtubs (at least I never got one), only shower "stalls". The walls are thin, and since it's a hip party hotel, I got woken up in the middle of the night many times by loud drunk people coming home or people watching TV in the next room. The restaurant is good but way too expensive for what you get, and the gym is $15 every time you use it. I found the front desk staff to be very good, but the housekeeping service leaves much to be desired. I often didn't have all of my essentials stocked- towels, shampoo, etc. This happened consistently week to week. All in all, I think it would be a fun place to stay IF you aren't planning on having more than 2 people in a room and if you are willing give up some quiet for a party atmosphere.

      Very Nice Hotel

      from

      I spent this past New Year's Eve here with a friend. Unfortunately, we never made it to the hip bar at the hotel but we did eat at the restaurant Heartbeat, which was excellent! The staff at the hotel was excellent! The rooms at this location are a small, but clean. The beds, as always, were comfortable. The location was nice, although my cab driver couldnt seem to find it. The atmosphere is fantastic! Very chic, and laid back. If you want a lot of space in your hotel room, you are probably going to have a problem here, but if you dont mind a small room, then I would highly recommend this hotel.

      Excellent

      from

      Excellent Hotel, with great staff - was filled with suits but we felt very comfortable wandering around in jeans and backpack. Totally modern with amazing rooms - not the best bathrooms i've seen in a hotel but definitely the best bedroom.

      Loved it !!!!!!!!!

      from

      Great staff, great service, had a wonderful time.

      Loved the music that was played everywhere. Would like to see if I could buy more CDs ( Got the first one) We celebrated my daughters 21st birthday there. It was the best!!!!!!! We will be back.

      Wear black and bring the Platinum Card

      from

      Starwood's "W" brand typically attracts young, hip urbanites and their signature hotel in Midtown is no exception. It's a great place to stay if you can get a rate below $209. With the exception of the often-invisible doormen/valets (attitude with a Capital "A") the service is attentive and friendly, the decor is very chic NY modern and the room amenities are great (featherbeds, Aveda products, HDTV). However, be aware that the rooms are small, the lobby is very noisy (lobby bar, nightclub entrance and constantly blaring pop music) and the elevators and hallways are dimly lit (its Atmosphere, Darling).

      Today we had a very early start. Up at 4.45am to catch the train to NYC. It was a great train ride. I really enjoyed it. Arrived in NYC at 9.30am dropped our bags off at doubletree suites Times Square and then headed off to MetLife stadium for an NFL game. Giants vs Eagles. Atmosphere was mind blowing. Walking in you see everyone in the car park with tents set up, bbqs, music, games, just having fun getting ready for the game. I have never seen anything like it before. At the gates ...

      Boston to New York

      ... it again until it was bought up to our room. We have a great room on the 36th floor with a view of Times Square. We didn't stay in our room long. We had tickets to the Empire State Building observatory and wanted to use them at night time to view the city. Off on foot we walked to the Empire State Building, via TGI Fridays, for the worst meal we've probably had while here. It took about 20 minutes to walk to the Empire State Building, and while crossing the last traffic ...

      ... and would have made a nice stop but we stayed on the bus til Chinatown which turned out to be a mistake as the area was a bit grubby. Little Italy was so small we missed it! Having got off the bus we decided to enjoy a walk to the 9/11 Memorial which was very sobering and poignant. It's amazing that the scars have healed at least in physical terms. In Times Square our bus guide pointed out a Fire Department Station House where every single fireman met ...

      ... here.

      We came across a m&m shop….. now, I thought that they were just little chocolates that you buy in the local supermarket, I was wrong. There were three levels, I didn’t know that m&m’s came in that many colours or that you could get so many different types of dispensers. There was also so much merchandise, T-shirts, soft toys, pyjamas, make your own name tags and much much more. If I want any m&m’s, I’ll just buy them from ...

      ... If you pay a little extra they take you up in what looks like a lift from the 50's to the 102nd floor. As high as the 86th was you can notice the difference up there.

      While we were in the area we decided to have a look at times square. Its pretty much what we expected, lots of big screens and lots of tourists. Our highlight there was stopping in the Toys-r-us ...
