Rated 5 out of 5 by AJR1 Excellent Hotel
Just came back from a stay at the W Downtown for the NYC marathon.
The hotel is a short walk away from the Staten Island ferry - so ideal to get to the start.
Great location - easy to go uptown.
Very moving view from the rooms across to the 9/11 memorial too.
Special thanks to Robert Rozko, the Concierge, for looking after us and providing some excellent tips on where to go!!
Overall a great city stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LindaTheRealtor Simply Fabulous!!
What an awesome experience! This was our 1st time staying at a W hotel & it certainly won't be our last. This was the most accommodating hotel that my husband & I have ever stayed at. The staff was very friendly, courteous, & exceeded our expectations w/ service! Our boys (1 in college-1 senior in HS) don't want to hang with us much anymore---so my husband & I are reacquainting with each other & want to do some traveling We've been to all of our sons football games, parent teacher conferences, school "stuff", track meets-----we never missed anything!!. We will be going to Miami after football season & plan on staying at the W Hotel in Miami Beach & enjoying "our life" again!!

The service was fantastic. We truly loved Jim, who initially helped us with our luggage but then gave us wonderful advice regarding our room and how to enjoy the city.
The service in BLT was not the best I have ever had, but still above average.
Thanks again for the great stay. Will definitely be back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jusgirlric Great hotel in Downtown NYC
Found a great deal on this hotel for week of Fourth of July. It is located right across the street from the 9/11 Memorial entrance and blocks away from Wall St. The room was very clean and comfy. Bliss bath products were a nice treat. Bed was very comfortable. No free wi-if in room, but can get in lobby/living room. Concierge can print out boarding pass for flights. Overall, great stay. I would definitely book this hotel next time I am in NYC.

I stayed at the W - Downtown and Chris went out of way when I was checking out in the morning to hail down a cab for me. he walked several blocks until he would find out. He was professional, courtesy and had a positive approach to his job.

Courteous staff and exceedingly helpful. Quick and expeditious car drop off and retrieval which was critical both upon tardy arrival (for a wedding) and quick departure (flight)! Check in great and Andrew was friendly right away --and the following day-- patient and helpful assisting with other questions I had. Perfect. Thank you all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tvlmama Kudos for this Visit!
This visit was the best! I have had the opportunity to stay here a number of times and have not always been pleased, but I must say this was a much more pleasant customer experience and I will definitely select The "W" Downtown NY again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 27Rings Good experience, but
Although many aspects of the hotel were wonderful, for us, what was lacking was the "warmth" of the hotel staff. No greetings as we moved from room elevator to lobby elevator; front desk to concierge. The exception was Ray every morning. A true delight that understands customer experience. He brought us water when we didn't ask, anticipating our need. Also, recommending I use books to raise my laptop to make it easy. He is a keeper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MaryKate Comfortable room, knowledgeable staff
We came to NYC to visit friends in early June 2013 and had a wonderful time at the W Downtown. The room was tidy, the bed was outstandingly comfortable, the shower was big enough for two, and the bath products were high end. The bar area was pretty chic and the balcony has an outstanding view of the freedom tower, though the drinks were a little overpriced. Overall the hotel has a pretty young vibe and it caters to that crowd - probably not somewhere you want to send your grandmother.
What impressed us the most however was the staff. Chris, one of the doormen, was an outstanding resource and a fountain of information and recommendations. Without him we would have been lost in the shuffle of random restaurants and yelp reviews. Chris listened to the atmosphere and style we were looking for, and hooked us up a slew of solid spots to check out. He helped make our whole weekend enjoyable, not just the time we spent at the hotel. Thanks Chris!

The staff were more than professional and helpfull on our recent stay. The room was great and the patio on the 5th floor was perfect to sit and have a snack with cocktails. The breakfast was one of the best ones we have had in a hotel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CareyOD Comfort and style collide!
You can never quite put your finger on what makes a hotel room comfortable for sleeping, but whatever fairy dust does the trick is evident at the W Downtown. Style is part of the W's DNA so I'm not going to spend time talking about it. It's a W, mmm-m-m-kay? I think their beds and bedding, especially top quality pillows, makes the bed ultra-comfortable for sleeping. Two thickness of shades on the windows gives you a choice of how light or dark you want the room, but that FULL ON comfort of the beds and bedding does the trick. And what's more luxurious, when you think about it, than a great night's sleep?

I have stayed at many SPG properties for business, the W Downtown in New York is by far the best I have ever stayed at. The staff was amazing and made my stay productive!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeff W is Wow
Best outdoor lobby lounge balcony in the city. Hotel is directly across from Freedom Tower. Fabulous views of uptown from the North side of the building. Staff is friendly and knowledgable and helpful. The black on black polished stone decor in the 5th floor check in lobby is a bit overwhelming at first. (Nauseating was the term my roomates used). They let me bring my bicycle into the room for BikeNY. Convenient iCon parking around the corner - make two hard right turns coming from West St on Albany onto Washington then Carlisle before you reach the hotel.

Spacious cool corner room with very nice view of ground zero. The room is very well decorated with nothing to complain about. The room service was good although the selection is somewhat limited. Friendly staff. Good SPG recognition. Will return.

The hotel was very nice, well located for an event in the downtown area and very clean.
The only problem was several members of our party were charged for snacks they did not use.

Our first visit to a W hotel. It’s a small hotel and you’re treated like family. Breakfast and dinner were both delicious, great service. 5th floor bar has awesome shrimp cocktail, comfortable couches and outside deck. Rooms are immaculate. Lots of high-tech features. Outstanding team of people!

On-line booking was a breeze and upon arrival (early check in at 1 PM) my room was ready, clean and the view was fabulous. BLT restaurant was great. Early morning complimentary coffee was provided. I would recommend and stay here again.

A really great view of the World Trade Center and 9/11 Memorial greeted me upon entrance to my room. The bed was so comfortable. The other great thing was walking only a few blocks to the NYSE where I had a meeting that afternoon/evening. Extremely convenient!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BPA42 Great staff and property
I generally stay at other Starwood brands, and sometimes don't feel "hip enough" for Ws, but with meetings across the street, I tried the W Downtown. The staff was awesome - very laid back and friendly. Nice amenities and a comfortable room...I'd definitely recommend this property to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WineAdvisoryGroup Excellent Choice for the Area
Super Cool W style, staff was great and the views are amazing. Part of the building is dedicated to residences, so it's not particularly jamming even when occupancy is high. A great option if you have work in the area or just want to play.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Macs Great features - excellent staff
The hotel met all of our needs from comfort, staff, fitness to transportation. One thing I would say is that it is hard to find a good, late meal besides room service but everything else was great. The concierge service was excellent and helped with all of our needs and answered all of our questions, and we had quite a few with being new to the city. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
