An average hotel - nothing special. Has a better than average gym (bench press etc) Bed is very comfortable However - food is expensive and not so good. Rooms are small The internet access is .... so, so slow. Better hotels for 30 percent less in mid town (e.g The Royalton) Overall: just.... Average!

Room had the worst airconditioning service--made a huge "bang" noise with water bubbling after every 45 min-1hr. Did not sleep all weekend! Loudest room ever! Bathroom door slid off during night. Night. Really? This is the "W". Hotel showing its age. The compensation? Points to their hotel club I do not even belong too! Location good- just short cab ride...

The concierge at W hotel, her name is Lauren Oosterlinck, was the best concierge I have ever experienced! She was extremely helpful and positive, and made our stay even better. A good concierge makes a good hotel :-)

Nice Hotel, W staff members were all professional. Everything I requested was granted without any issues.

I am a frequent traveller, alternating between 2 major hotel chains and SPG is one of them.

The very best thing about this hotel was the front desk staff person, Alexander. We first met him when we checked in after midnight, as our flight was delayed. Despite the late hour, there was a line-up and Alexander was the only person working the desk. He took extra pains to take good care of us even before being told...

This is the original W Hotel, but this is certainly not the best. The first room I was given was in a nook...literally. It was in a tiny side hallway behind the ice maker. I could touch 3 of the for walls while sitting in the bed. The front desk staff attendant mentioned that it was one of the 'cozier'...

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.
