Rated 5 out of 5 by ride2fast4u Celebration get away!
We decided to head to NYC to celebrate a birthday and wedding anniversary, and we stayed at the W - Time Square. The location is awesome, right in the middle of all the action! We walked to dinner and the theater every night, and 5th Avenue shopping is just a short walk away! The party in the 7th floor lounge raged until the wee hours, not the quietest hotel in the world, but if you are looking for a nice hotel in a great location, this one's for you!

Rated 1 out of 5 by KWBLondon Not a place to rest
The main issue with this hotel is the location and noise / light pollution from times square - I stayed for four nights on business and despite requesting a room facing away and on the top floors the noise was awful. examples include a truck with beeping noise that was fixing a light display which started at 4am and didn't stop at all and the fact the rooms have blinds only which don't block out the lights in times square what I would consider a relatively easy thing to fix. The hotel itself in terms of room comfort is ok - no bath and small bathrooms but clean - Gym is very small for size of hotel and even at 5-30 am it is very busy (probably as a result of everyone not being able to sleep due to the noise). I would not stay there again purely as I am on business trip and need to try and get some sleep...I would move a few blocks away

Rated 5 out of 5 by Carrie82 Perfect Anniversary Getaway
My husband and I stayed at the W Times Square for our third wedding anniversary over the July long weekend. The staff were OUTSTANDING! As someone who works in the industry as well I was incredibly happy with everything this hotel had to offer. From check in to check out, the entire stay was seamless. So much so, I'll be back and visiting again this coming weekend!
Thank you W Times Square! Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by notcomingback Disappointed
Very disappointed in my stay. Several times during the night I would hear drilling sounds in the walls. When I mentioned this to the front desk the worker simply shrugged their shoulders and said something about construction on the upper floors. At 3 AM?! In addition, the overall room cleanleness was low. As a SPG and timeshare owner, I would rate this as the worst hotel I've stayed at. Especially when you consider the price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by tpls10s Not our favorite "W"
The staff was very friendly. Concierge was happy to make recommendations and reservations but knowledge of restaurants was lacking. The restaurants he recommended were mediocre.
The quality and appointment of rooms were less than what we've encountered in other W hotels.
Accessing the gym took two separate elevator rides -but it was very clean but equip well maintained . Times Square NOT my fav place to stay in NY!

Rated 4 out of 5 by HoldenW this hotel has good location
I mean generally the hotel is good, the service is ok. But one thing i really don't like is the front desk, if there is no better room for upgrade, then don't tell me like we got a nice upgrade for you! i am a platinum member. i travel a lot, i am not a 3 years old kids, don't need to lie to me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ann49 overall a good experience
We loved the location of the hotel - walking distance to everything - and we enjoyed our stay. However, I did not like the set-up of the bathroom. The walls were practically see-through so there was virtually no privacy. I would not stay in a room like that ever again. Also, the breakfast we ordered was good but no where near worth $100! We each had 2 eggs, coffee and toast. Breakfast was completely overpriced.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ChasPat Could have been better
The hotel was in a great location, but the room was not very clean. It was neat but stuff on the carpet that could have been picked up. The bathroom and carpet had not been cleaned well and the next day, we saw the same things after the room was cleaned and the linen was not changed. No refrig/microwave. Old furniture & the cash bar in the room was a joke.For the price/points, it should have been much nicer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by IPYguy Another great NYC experience
In spite of the impact from Sandy and the subsequent snow, the hotel and the staff provided us with another wonderful stay in NYC. New Yorkers are friendly because they are proud of their city, and W staff are obviously proud of their workplace, which is reflected in their friendliness and service standard. thanks to housekeeping, front desk, concierge, restaurant and management for your help and fine care.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nicky410 Another great stay at the W Times Square
I stay frequently here...it's just great. Very central for both business and pleasure...right in the heart of Times Square...and only a few blocks from my office. Staff is always very friendly and helpful...great night spot too for a drink or more. Blue Finn is a great restrurant for breakfast, lunch or dinner...have enjoyed them all. Rooms clean, neat and always ready. Wouldn't stay anywhere else! Go!

Rated 3 out of 5 by ReasonableCustomer Avoid Blue Fin at Breakfast, if you are in a hurry
Seasoned travelers can always spot a slow restaurant before they even sit down. This place had a malaise about it from the getgo.
Took 2-3 minutes to get seated, then 3-5 for the waitress to come over and tell us she would be right with us, than another 2-3minutes for service, then another server had to take up the slack and pour coffee, then 10-15 minute wait for our order, which was wrong. The she said 2 minutes to get it right. after another 10 minutes the order finally came right.
Yes they comped the bill without us even asking, but once you have staying in the W Honk Kong or one of the other super-well run Ws, this place simply doesn't compare.
Lastly, is it me or is the dark hallways and noisy lobby thing trite at this point? I tire of trying to see in my room due to lack of light.

Rated 4 out of 5 Great Location, Awesome Views
This was my second time staying here for work and I was just as impressed. The staff is friendly, the Living Room Bar is hip and always bumping, and the rooms are really cool looking with awesome city views. Probably not my definition of a family hotel as the bathrooms all have frosted glass which basically lets you see into and out of the bathroom, but definitely a hip and fun place for couples.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JT1010 Lowest quality SPG hotel
I travel to NYC often for work. This was the first time I opted for the Times Square W. The lobby seemed nice - staff was relatively friendly. When I got to my room that's where I realized I either was out up in the worst possible room available or this hotel has major issues. The furniture was the most dated, and absolutely ratty I've ever been to with SPG. The room was small but that didn't bother me too much because it's Times Square. The bathroom allowed for zero privacy - you basically have a see through closet door with no sink. There were no curtains - just a window which made the room either pitch black via the card board pull down chain drape or super bright and see through so that the high rise office next door was glaring in at you. The real joke though was this couch chair in the window. I took pictures of it bc it was so funny. It was something you get for free at a garage sale. The surface texture was so beat up and faded. Then there were hundreds of carve marks in it. I don't even think a motor lodge would opt to keep this thing laying around. Last thing to complete my awesome experience was the ice machine literally right next door to my door. That thing going off all hours of the night - with paper thin walls - over the top. Overall for 400 plus a night I will certainly find another (ie; any other) hotel to hit up next time I'm here.

Although I frequently visit NYC on business I can never resist to be a tourist in that city and stay at "Touristy" hotels. W is located right at the heat of Times Square which is perfect for a part-time tourist like myself. It is modern yet very elegant. Perfect combination of both worlds and I truly enjoyed my stay. It can be a bit pricy but what isn't pricy in NYC, right?!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sammy28 Great location but not a plush hotel
The Times Square location is great, but I was disappointed in the lack of amenities. The robes are thin and cheap looking, the hair dryer looked like something from the seventies, the lighting is dim throughout the hotel, and the music overhead was annoying. The chair in the room was not comfortable to sit in. For the prices they charge, I expected a lot more .

Truly the best hotel to stay at in New York. The staff is exceptional. Special thanks to Kristin who missed no detail and Michael for making my son's birthday the best. Kristin, you went above and beyond and I can't thank you enough! We will absolutely be staying at the W the next time we are in New York! Shout out to T.J. and Pat, we love you guys!

I just had a great experience at the W Times Square. I booked 8 rooms for my friends 40th birthday party. Everything went off without a hitch. The entire staff (Jenna in particular) went above and beyond to make sure we had a terrific time. Having stayed at just about every Starwood property in NYC the W Times Square is now on the top of my list.

I love the W. Excellent staff. The decor, vibe, and feel of the place from the moment we walked in was amazing. Had nice dinner at the Blue Fin Restaurant on first floor. Our room was spacious and clean and the view from the 53rd floor was heavenly at night and in the morning. Will definitely return and recommend the W to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Neo9 A great escape from busy Times Square
Had a great stay at the W Times Square. This was my first time at a W and was impressed right from the friendly and efficient checkin to the (unfortunately too soon) checkout. The room was comfortable and had thoughtful touches but would benefit from blackout blinds as some may have a disrupted sleep from Times Square lights.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DocLove Good Hotel if you want Times Sq & get a good price for NY
I am a platinum member so I tend to get upgraded quite a bit. This hotel like many Starwood properties runs from very nice rooms to OK with a view of a building next door. I've been fortunate to get the Times Sq view in an upgraded room many times. There are some good restaurants and lively night/day life here. The service is ok not great and the front desk tends to be packed so it takes a long time to check in out or to get another key when they don't work. They have a good gym /its split into two separate rooms that are not well signed but you can get a good workout in.

Even though the staff was dealing with post hurricane recovery efforts, Patrick, the manager, made our stay a memorable one. It was my daughter's 16th birthday and there were cupcakes and fun W-themed gifts waiting in our room upon arrival. My daughter was thrilled. The hotel and the location are great!

We booked the w through Amex platinum and got a great rate, breakfast, late checkout and $100 credit towards food at blue fin where the food was outstanding and an upgrade to corner room. Service at the hotel was five star. We have stayed at fine hotels and this was at the top, we highly recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DazlingD Great Location, can't beat staff friendliness
For my first time in NYC the location was excellent. The cool corner room was not as cool as the other cool corner suites I've stayed in, it was old & tired, with the headboard scratched to death, stains on the carpet & bathroom tiles, but that was fine the room was clean overall & the view was impeccable! The staff were beyond nice, friendly & accommodating, every single one of them!! It was my birthday & the staff ensured I had an amazing time. As the saying goes "its not your surroundings that matter its the way people make you feel that you remember". If you are not staying at this hotel you are doing yourself a big injustice. Thank you W

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chantal Fantastic staff
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The location was perfect for a first-time tourist and the rooms were clean and well-lit (though the lack of storage was a little perplexing). What I was particularly struck by was the friendliness of all members of staff. From A to Z, everyone was friendly, informative, showed great inclination to help. Even the cleaning staff would always greet us when passing through the hallways. By far, my favorites were the concierges and the door ambassadors. For a first time in New York, both "departments" were full of useful information and great guidance.
In all of this, one door Ambassador in particular stands out. Frankie Shane. He was on duty every single day of our 4 day stay, He began recognizing us very early on with all our comings and goings, and often took the initiative to help direct us before leaving the hotel. He was fantastic.
Overall, this hotel comes highly recommended for a first time visit, though being in the heart of Times square, you must be prepared for the noise and the crowds.

The rooms were in a dreadful state - looking tired, dirty, hair on the floor, dust everywhere. Elevator noise is present in 90% of the rooms. Always having to queue to see someone at reception. A "not-my-job-attitude" by hotel staff. Shocking.

We were very pleased with our stay at the Times Sq. W. My only concern was the lighting in the elevator.
My old eyes had a problem with finding the floor numbers., On my next visit I will bring a flashlight, then everything will be perfect.
