Three major airports. 14 subway lines. 33 bus routes. Multiple ferries. And the PATH train to New Jersey/Hoboken. New York City is connected.

Arrive at W New York – Downtown with ease. We recommend that you fly into either John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK), LaGuardia Airport (LGA) or Newark-Liberty International Airport (EWR) and travel to the hotel via airport shuttle or taxi, both of which will whisk you to our doorstep in approximately 45 minutes to an hour, depending on traffic. Newark—the more organized and less busy of the three—also offers an AirTrain alternative. Reservations for all transportation can be made at counters close to the airport exits or through Whatever/Whenever®.

Once in the city, Manhattan’s myriad public transportation options are on offer, along with the city’s celebrated 24/7 yellow cabs and complimentary crosstown bus shuttles across lower Manhattan. You also have the inspiring opportunity to see the city on foot, which allows you to take in New York’s signature sights, sounds, sensations, scents, scenes and snacks. Cars can be complicated, due to limited parking and traffic conditions, but if you prefer to drive, Whatever/Whenever® will be more than happy to handle the arrangements.

If you are traveling by car, please see driving directions, from the airport or any other location.
