I've just returned from a lovely 4 days in New York and my stay at the W accounts for a good part of that. Even though 'you're only sleeping in the room, so why bother with anything fancy' has a point, I do still want to have that haven you can go to after a day of busy, hot (yes,... More

I have been working in New York from Texas Sunday through Friday for 4 months. It has been difficult, it has been cold and truly my only solace has been knowing that I'll be in a great room and receive excellent service whenever I get a few moments off from Work.

Just stayed at the W for St. Patrick's Day weekend. Staff was the most courteous and helpful I've interacted with in quite a while and I travel a lot for work. We were there to celebrate my sister's birthday, and the check-in staff upgraded us to a larger room. Yes, the rooms are small, but most are in NY. They... More

I travel to Midtown NYC often for work, and stay here every week. Carmen at the front desk is awesome - very sweet, remembered my name after staying there just two weeks. She goes out of her way to make my experience wonderful. Dereon the valet is also fantastic, he's got a great attitude and so pleasant to talk to!... More

New York is easily one of my favorite cities to visit, and with there being so many Starwood properties it can often be a difficult decision. The last few stays I've been staying across the Hudson at the W in Hoboken, but decided to try something different this time around that was close to all the action. This hotel is... More

While the location is very good and the place tried to be 'hip', the rooms are really below what one would expect for a W hotel. The room is very small, the bed is small, the shower is below average, the elevator got stuck and the acoustics are poor. The hotel staff attempt to make it up by offering Champagne... More

We arrived with maybe a bit of skepticism due to the mixed reviews, but it was an overall nice experience. Got the room on Priceline for 160$ + tax in the begining of March, so I guess that's a good price for NY The room: Of course on the small side (had a standard “cozy queen”) but we were well... More

I booked a quick getaway for my wife's birthday this past week-end. We always worry about picking the right hotel and spend way too much time reading reviews.

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.
