Rated 3 out of 5 by britter Room with a view?
When I reserved the room, in the header it specifically said view of NYC. When I later checked in, the man at the front desk talked up our room as an amazing view of the Freedom Tower. All of this build up eventually got us pretty excited for the view. Wen we finally walked in all we could see was a huge steel building completely blocking our view. Long story short, why build up a crummy view? It only left us disappointed.
Second thing, once we were in the room we put some music on around 7/8 PM on Saturday. We used the music dock provided in the room, didn't have the music turned up loud at all (not even as loud as the speaker went) and still someone came to the door saying we needed to be quiet. It wasn't like it was 2AM, even after 9PM for that matter. Also, why have music devises in the room if you can't use them?

Our last night in the NYC area was made very special by the entire staff. Already as we drove into the valet parking area the staff was super friendly helping us with our little son and our luggage. The staff was friendly, helpful and very engaging. Check-in took a matter of minutes. Nothing was a problem or a bother. Already as you walk through the hotel everyone is aware of your needs and is ready to help. They truly implement the "whatever whenever" concept. We left more than satisfied, and it was all due to the great staff and team work which was on display. A must stay in the NYC area.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Phil706 Had no Sleep due to dance party
My wife and my two boys came to your hotel on August 16th because my older boy was to move in to Stevens as a freshman the next day at 8 am. We enjoyed the local sites etc that night but we where not aware we to over a "club". Our alarm was set to 5:45 so there was enough time to get packed breakfast etc before going to Stevens. We had less than 3.5 hrs of sleep. The bass from the down stairs party kept us up until the late hours of the night. The last time i looked at my watch was 2:13 am and the bass was still pumping. You have to be kidding me with this type of treatment to your hotel guests. Not only did none of us have a quality of sleep but our following day was deeply impacted. My son day was a challenge for him due to no sleep from the music and college life anticipation, the drive home was dreadful. I needed to get work done around the house (heavy landscaping) upon returning home but was unable due to lack of sleep. To compound matters I am having surgery to my right shoulder tomorrow and the work I was suppose to do will now not be able to be completed until next year due to my rehab. To say I was totally dissatisfied, angry, aggravated and fit to be tied is an understatement. If you want to discuss this matter further I would love to here from the hotel on why this practice continues. I was told from multiple employees that this has occurred "time after time". Feel free to reach out to me regarding this matter. I am looking forward to your call regarding this manner.

Rated 1 out of 5 by missyjg Worst Noisiest Hotel
My card was charged for parking although I paid in cash. I was not informed when I booked the charge, nor the hold-charge for amenities for the room which I never used.
There was music and noise ongoing until 3am in the morning. I complained to the staff who just apologized but they never did anything about it, which tells me there is poor management.

Over the last several months I have noticed an improvement in the attention given to customers. It had waned in the earlier part of this year, but now has returned to its usual state.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BlackDahlia Highly Overrated!
Let me first say that, the hotel is absolutely gorgeous, the staff excellent and the view of the Manhattan skyline; breathtaking.
BUT….without going into too much detail, amenities that are standard or complimentary at other hotels, including hotels in the same family required additional cost at the “W”. SERIOUSLY?
I love the Westin and typically that’s where you’ll find me when I travel, but decided to try the “W” because of the location; highly overrated!
I would recommend this hotel for all of the reasons I listed above; with the caveat about the ancillary charges.

Rated 3 out of 5 by KitchenSink My stay at the Hoboken, W hotel
Our stay started out just great, food was good from the hotel, staff very nice, room excellent. By the fourth nite we found ANTS, yes I said Ants, all over the bathroom floor. They upgraded our room and gave me 15,000 starpoints. The next day we were checking out, as we took our showers we realized the water wasn't draining properly; again I reported it. There is absolutely no excuse for a shower drain not to be draining properly; doesn't housekeeping notice that? I felt the universe was telling me it was time to go home so we did.

My first experience at the W hotel. It is one of best properties of SPG that I have stayed. Situated in heart of Hoboken, which is beautiful by the day, and live in the night (meaning: has great pubs around, along the hudson river).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Arturo47 My Birthday Weekend at the W
All i can say is when i come to the W and the staff greet you before entering the lobby it gives one a home feeling of comfort.Its very difficult to express ones gratitude in how we are served while staying at the W.Its the W that makes my stays so much more enjoyable from home and I think it all has to do with the staff and the standards they follow that want me to come back as often as I do.Truly an exception Hotel.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Lee45 Did Not Meet Expectations For Price
Upon arrival and entry into our room I realized the "view" of the city I paid for was actually a view of a parking deck. It was my children' s first time in the area, which is why I picked this hotel and paid extra. The breakfast included was minimal. We went all night with the bathroom light not working when a simple explanation from downstairs could have remedied the issue. Instead, maintenance was called the next morning and flipped a simple black switch. The final straw was when we were woken up around five am by loud arguing in the hallway. I was VERY disappointed and will not book this hotel again. I could have stayed in New York for the price, noise, and overall experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vincos My Favorite NYC Area W
An ABSOLUTE WOW! I had never been to Hoboken and only booked to experience the spectacular view of Manhattan and the new WTC that I had read about. We were not disappointed - in fact, the proximity of the water shuttle to Chelsea and the totally hip vibe of the surrounding neighborhood makes this a really interesting alternative to staying in the city. The Platinum upgrade was to a drop-dead gorgeous suite with two bathrooms and every possible W amenity. We opted to take the complimentary breakfast and it was a full a la carte selection served on the atmospheric outdoor terrace of the Tuscan steakhouse restaurant. We loved starting the day with Eggs Benedict, a pleasant server and a view of Manhattan and the river. The staff were across the board young, hip and attractive. The gym is great and truly state-of-the-art.

We've stayed at the Hoboken W on prior occasions and have never been disappointed. We had a minor issue when checking in which was taken care of by several staff members..They really were very accommodating. The town of Hoboken might be changing, but it's good to see the W stay consistent with it's outstanding service.

Rated 4 out of 5 by dimatik Hotel is ok, breakfast service bad
Most things are on par with other W hotels. Breakfast service was exceedingly slow - there was 1 waiter serving the entire restaurant which was packed. Why? No idea.

Rated 3 out of 5 by atbd Noise from the hotel club on April 3
The club connected to the hotel had a very loud sound system on the night of April 3. My room was on the 5th floor. I called to complain to the hotel front desk at 10:15 pm about the noise and was told the club was open to 2:00 am however the person who took the call said that she would send security to ask the club to turn the volume. Apparently that did not help because the noise continued. The person contacted at the desk also offered to move me to a different room. Since it was after 10 pm and I could not imagine a quiet room in the hotel, I declined. The next morning I spoke with a colleague who was on the 15th floor of the hotel and he informed that he was kept awake by the noise until 2:00 am.
I have been a guest at this hotel a number of times in the past years and, until this visit, I have received good service and enjoyed a good experience. I think it is pretty bad that the club noise volume has a greater priority than providing the hotel guests with a quiet room. I certainly hope this issue is addressed very soon.

Rated 3 out of 5 by PETIE341 OVERPRICED
Although check-in service was extremely hospitable, I was not impressed by the overall experience. The restaurant and downstairs bar were nothing special. For the price charged, I could have stayed in Manhattan for less. I was awoken by construction workers next door and was not able to open my curtains to view the limited skyline as the workers were staring at my guest and I

Very nice hotel. I recommend you make sure to get a view north towards Manhattan, as a new building is being constructed to the South of it, which somewhat obscures the view.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jon8345 Overall a good place to stay…but,
This is a very nice hotel, but we were disappointed in the cleaning of our room -- for example, our used glasses remained there for a day or two and no one replenished our mini-bar.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Nobby Concierge service not good
When I booked a transport through the concierge the taxi ripped me off. ( VIP taxi arranged by the W) Reporting this back to the concierge he said he would take care, however nothing happened.
I would expect a better concierge service from a W Hotel, specially in a city where regular taxis are not easy to find

Decent enough hotel. Best part was the view. Everything else only okay. Restaurant service terrible. Service were very slow, servers didn't know menu, prices, etc. Hostess was rude as well. Nightclub was only accessible to hotel guests by waiting in line OUTSIDE ! Doubt I'll ever stay there again.

My partner and I spent this past weekend at the W Hoboken and we were just blown away by the warm and wonderful hospitality with which we were greeted and treated throughout our stay! The hotel has great features and the location, with a magnificent view of Manhattan, could not have been better for our "getaway". Great amenities and the staff was extremely professional, efficient and warm!
I took advantage of a massage at Bliss (which is right there!) and this completed a fantastic and outstanding experience! Like being in heaven!! We will definitely want to go back and recommend it highly to any avid traveler.

I used starpoints to pay for this hotel and I really feel it was overpriced. The room i stayed in was pretty small. The refrigerator area was very dirty. The manager was not very helpful in fulfilling my request for a room upgrade as a Gold Preffered member.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MarkTexNYC Heaven comes to New Jersey
A true ambassador to what the W brand really is, the W Hoboken is a jewel and often has rates that will save you some dough when in NYC. I highly recommend staying here if you're ok with taking a quick train under the river.
I don't know what I did to get so lucky... Wait, I do know! I used one of my handy-dandy Suite Night Awards and got upgraded to the --- wait for it -- Extreme WOW. Neither Extreme, nor WOW, even in combination, due this 17th floor paradise justice. Never before have I experience such refined luxury and exceptional, classy taste. Two huge bedrooms, two and a half baths, two balconies, sweeting views, sound system throughout the suite. WOW. Wow, y'all, WOW! Based on the style of this room, I'd guess all the rest of great, too.
The Living Room here is a step up from most Ws. The restaurant is great, room service is fast. Whatever/Whenever is reliable.
PATH train is about a 5-8 minute walk from the hotel. Takes you to a few places in Manhattan.
Fri and Sat night turn into a bit of a Jersey Shore in-real-life club night....but you can get away from that it you want.

First time staying in Hoboken for meetings in NYC. More convenient than staying in Manhattan. Quieter location. Great restaurants. Super easy mass transit to any part of Manhattan. I am converted - only staying in Hoboken now when I have to be in NYC.

My wife and I spent one night here at the end of a vacation to the east coast. We were blown away by the view of NYC from the room, as well as the decor inside the hotel and the room itself. The staff were all very nice to boot. We didn't get much time to spend in Hoboken, but we loved every minute of it. We will definitely try to return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SharadB Excellent Customer Centric Staff
While all the facilities were great as expected from W , the staff made a huge difference. On checkout I had forgotten my customized bluetooth headset in the room, the housekeeping staff turned it over to security. Front office called me to ensure that I was aware of my missing item. I was in the area and went back to pick it up, saved me all the hassles. The staff went above and beyond their responsibilities in making sure that I wasn't inconvenienced, although it was my forgetfulness. I would recommend it to all my colleagues and friends.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dustypebbles Great views! (while they are still available)
Have been here several times and it is still very clean. The construction next door is really going to kill the views. I was back again for my grand daughter's 2nd birthday
I waited over 20 min to get my room. Only one other guest was checking in. The staff--(Ryan?) said that he had someone checking my room to see if it was available. This was at 5:00 and check out is noon. He was very courteous, but apparently the wait was out of his control. Not sure what that was all about-
I plan on returning on July 6th to visit my newest grand daughter(due next week) and will make a point of checking in earlier. Hope I get a river view !

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sadyhawke Terrible stay
We were on the 4th floor and were able to hear the music blaring late at night from the hotel's bar. As I was travelling with my mother, this was very disappointing. We called once, but I guess it is unrealistic for the hotel bar to "turn their music off." The room also had a funny smell as if another worse smell (possibly cigarette smoke) was present prior to our stay and now an attempt was being made to cover it up by using some repulsive cleanser. And the Ipod dock didn't work. So overall--the fantastic view of the skyline just wasn't enough for us. Won't stay here again.
