Rated 4 out of 5 by Stammy very attentive staff
though the hotel rooms need a bit of an upgrade, the hotel staff was more than accomodating to my needs (e.g., food, room quality, heating, etc.) during my extended stay. the whatever/whenever staff was also very helpful all hours of the day.

Rated 3 out of 5 by mcmc Too small for too much money
the hotel is conveniently located.
the restaurant staff is very friendly, most of them have been working there for years.
the rooms are very small. difficult to get a nice upgrade.
cleanliness of the bathroom floor and shower is not great.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Lockout Failing on the Follow up
After being locked out my room due to a bad door lock; I was told it would be resolved quickly and that I would receive a complimentary breakfast the next morning.
I was also told that they would wait and fix my door after I checked out the following morning so I would get some sleep; then an someone showed up and began taking the door apart. Clearly he wasn't told to leave it to the morning.
Then I was told someone would call to take my breakfast order for the following morning. Never received a call.
So, the next morning I checked out at the front desk with no mention of the door lock fiasco or the missing breakfast; even though the person checking me out was the original person I reported the problem to the previous night.
Then around noon after I had already checked out, I received an email from the general manager apologizing for my inconvenience and offering a free breakfast. I thought to myself; "are you serious, she doesn't even know I checked out of the hotel".
If you must stay at a W Hotel in NYC there are two other in the same area; if not look at other options first.

Rated 3 out of 5 by hotelguest Trendy but not luxurious
I loved the hotel lobby decor and vibe. The room was quite small, and the bathroom compact. I would have liked it to have been more luxurious. I also found the walls to be extremely thin, with the noise next door coming through the wall.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Lee23 Checked in and checked out
Room smelt like mildew, entire facility dusty not clean. Upkeep and maintenance poor. Understaffed at front desk with long wait times. Check in at 11:00pm Friday and Checked out 11:30pm Friday. Not what you would expect from a W hotel.

I was so impressed by the staff at the Front Desk as well as the Concierge service, which managed to secure me some restaurant reservations, which are normally difficult to acquire, with great ease. I would definitely return.

Rated 3 out of 5 Don't park there if you are in a hurry
The hotel is nice enough and the room was comfortable. The staff is great, but the valet parking was a disaster. I was told 15-20 minutes and my car didn't arrive for 45 minutes!! I ended up being late for my meeting.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jbt123 W NY is Tired
The W New York has a tired and outdated interior and the rooms were were cramped and uncomfortable. There are many other better options in NY for the price. I won't be back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Cara22 Small dirty rooms
Marks all over walls and carpet. Hairs in sink. Did not display the whatever whenever motto. I called several times to the front desk to try to get another room. No one answered. I left a message. No one called back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Ponsuke Tiny room and bad service
First, the TV was disconnected and it took a while to be fixed. Second, despite the room upgrade as a benefit of the plutinum member, the room was tiny and difficult to move. Thiird, the shower curtain was smelly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by FranB W hotel Lexington Ave
We stayed at this W location in October 2012. The staff was very nice and accommodating, however the rooms were in desperate need of an update. We felt like we were placed in this room because we were using points.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SuePhilly Great value for my money
Very comfortable and esthetically pleasing room. Bed was wonderful as was the shower. Really enjoyed the lounge, the restaurant for Sunday breakfast and the hot apple cider. Only wish there was coffee in the room.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Chris43 Disappointing - but great location
The location of this W property is great, right in the heart of mid-town Manhatten. However, the location of the hotel cannot overcome several disappointments from my standpoint.
First, the room is/was incredibly small. I have traveled to NYC for over 20 years, and while room size is definitely smaller - the room that I was asked to stay in was very very small. This was a room that was given when the front desk staff notified me that I had been "upgraded". I am not sure what to. I hate to see what a guest receives if they are not a part of the Starwood program. My asks to relocate to another room were denied.
In addition, the room that I stayed in - it was impossible to adjust the temperature. It was set at 74, and even putting the setting to 60 there was no change in the temperature. Calls to the "Whatever/Whenever" line were not followed-up on - at least to my knowledge. It was clearly viewed by the staff as whatever.
The fitness center was very good, and exceeded my expectations.
This was first stay at this NYC W property, and it will be my last due to these issues.

I pre-ordered room service the evening before using the doorknob menu. It arrived fifteen minutes later than requested. The food (eggs) were cold and I was brought coffee rather than the tea I had ordered.

Excellent location close to everything. Room was small but well designed, contemporary looking and very clean. Concierge service is excellent. On the not so good side the A/C in the room was loud.
