The W Hotels are always clean and modern and the rooms, albeit small, are comfortable. That is the case for the W on Lexington Avenue. That being said, we waited for everything for way to long from checking in to getting elevators and most importantly, checking out. We had the front desk put something that needed refrigeration in storage for...

Stayed in July 2016 for business. As an SPG Platinum traveler, always love staying at a W property when I can. This was my first time at this specific location, which felt didn't live up to W standards. The room was small and looking worn out and tired. Lots of chips out of the furniture, walls in the room. It's...

Great hotel and friendly staff - except for the attitude from Doorman! I was checking out and leaving. Taxi right out front looked at me and asked if I needed a ride - I said sure. I started walking to the taxi with my luggage only to be intercepted by the doorman that wanted to re-direct me to other rides...

This hotel was great on all aspects of our stay. Great location just round the corner to Times Square. We loved the room and the bar was great. Room was really quiet and we upgraded to a suite which was fab.

Great hotel. The rooms are smaller, but very clean and modern. The lobby was fun to hang out in and the gym is great! In addition, the toiletries provided by the W spa smell amazing. I had a positive experience. Although, one time I stayed here I received an "upgrade" and the room wasn't as nice as I'd had without...

As always the W delivers. I especially love this location because it is very central to my city activities when I am home. To the park, Grand Central, Barneys, Museums, St Pat's, uptown or a quick dash to the Union Sq market downtown. This is location is super! The staff is professional, friendly and alert. And the attention to detail...

We spent our first night in New York in this design hotel. Check in was very fast and the room was in high up levels. The living room in the lobby was one of the most impressive i have ever had.

The W hotels chain never comes up short on anything. Always a class act of a hotel. First time at this midtown gem. Booked for a 2 night stay in their most modest room. Right in the heart of it all.

The W on Lexington is good. The rooms are typical NYC sized, so not large but still quite comfortable and livable. The hotel itself feels a little worn which is not uncommon for a high-traffic NYC hotel. The gym is very large for a downtown manhattan hotel and it's pretty quiet as most tourists aren't visiting to work out. The...

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
