The hotel is nice cozy good vibe and good service. Quiet in evenings after hours. Suggested for singles and young couples. I enjoyed the lounge and the bar was great. Don't get lost in the elevator as the 5th floor is the concierge and it is a bit confusing.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel at the beginning of April. We spent 4 nights here along with my 7 year son and although we didn't spend much time in the hotel (other than to relax late evening and then sleep) we found the staff all extremely friendly and the room very clean and comfortable. Despite my initial...

It has been a long flight when I arrived at lobby of W Downtown NYC. Unfortunately I got a room on a low floor even though my Platinum profile indicated a high floor preference - receptionist refused to look for another room as she argued the hotel was fully booked. I was in a hurry to check in and asked...

I usually think every hotel can be good but usually it excels it unforeseen circumstances. This time, I arrived without reservation as I had mixed up arrival dates. The staff was outstanding without fussing about my fault. I got a room at the same rate (which was a pretty good rate for a wonderful room). I got dedicated a very...

One of the least exciting W Hotels I've visited -- not helped by the isolated and dull FiDi location. The rooms were cheap imitations of something more interesting. You're better off at the W Union Sq or even the Sheraton on Canal-- better location.

A visit to the World Trade Center Memorial and Museum, along with shows in Times Square for a getaway overnight and we chose to stay downtown. Amazing views of the surrounding area out of the windows of a room on the 20th floor. The design of the rooms is a little on the science-fiction side, but perfectly comfortable and even...

This place wants to be cool. It's enthusiastically read the text book it got for Christmas and even took a few classes but it's missing the vibe. So the fifth floor reception is pretty interesting (and disorientatingly dark) and the bedrooms have some fun touches. But that's it. Right now there is zip food on offer. And no coffee making...

This location was absolutely exquisite! I checked into a Corner room with a spectacular view over the World Trade Center. It was perfectly located close to Battery Park where I had a tour scheduled.

I think this confirms I shall not book with W again. Again, all very hip but the room is small; no coffee makers, insufficient bathroom shelf space and expensive wifi (who else still charges for this now basic commodity?) make this a disappointing experience. Compounded this time by no cafe or restaurant or room service. Seems they knew this since...

Neighbourhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
