Rated 1 out of 5 by Wingfut Not what it used to be
Arrived after 3 and was told my room wasn't ready. Desk clerk simply shrugged shoulders. Manager simply said we could store luggage. After starting to book different hotel on my phone they finally found a room. Housekeeping was inconsistent, some days they would empty ice bucket, did not replace used plastic cups, dropped my things behind the bed so I had to pull the bed apart to retrieve them, etc. the leather furniture in the room was worn through in multiple places. Room was in poor condition all around. W's never have coffee makers in room. The room service at this one is outrageously high, my wife and I each had the omelette breakfast plus a scrambled egg for our son, $96 plus with only the included tip. This used to be my hotel of choice in NY due to its proximity to my office and quality. It won't be anymore!

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

Hotel has a good location right in the middle of the action but the room was somewhat worn and dated. The bed was very comfortable however and convenient to most attractions in Manhattan. If you like to be around crowds, this is the hotel to be at. Very convenient to theater district. Staff treated me well and the hotel has good security.

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!

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!!

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!

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 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 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 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.

Hotel is outdated. Not as posh as other W's I've stayed at. Location is fantastic, if you want to be in the center of the action.

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.

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!

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 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.

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 3 out of 5 by dellisma Crazy construction going on right now
The all-night construction outside of the hotel is mind-numbing. I hardly slept at all with the noise level. The rooms are average and clean, but I would recommend going with a different location within Starwood if you can...maybe the W on Lexington? Or, bring noise canceling headphones...

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 .

Rated 5 out of 5 by Giwitwin2 W. a great place to stay in times square
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.

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.

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 1 out of 5 by Tinmanjdh17 Disappointment in W Hotel Times Sq
Hotel did not provide a heads up at all about the noise from the construction in Times Sq. Jack hammering and the pounding of heavy equipment went on all night. Staff did not respond when asked about room in another location to avoid the noise. I am very disappointed as the location is terrific, my disatisfaction could have been avoided with a little communication.

Took an earlier flight at last minute for our anniversary wknd, and sent email request for early check in. We arrived at 930 am and room was ready and waiting. Back to room after dinner and bottle of champagne was waiting for us. The staff exceeded our expectations and would definitely recommend.

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!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Travelnista Fine as long as you don't want/need sleep
Dimly lit ambiance which may work for some but not for me. Although the hotel is nice I found the service to be lacking. The check-in/check-out person was nice but I had to cal several times for items like blankets & a heater & when they brought the heater it was actually a fan! It got down to 50 degrees during my stay & after being caught in the rain I was surprised there was no heat. So despite the extra blankets it was still very cold & I ended up sick. The room was a little on the small side & the doors slam shut so its quite a symphony of noise when people are coming & going which made sleep almost impossible. Housekeeping starts early & the lady yells out before entering so even if she is down the hall you will hear her. Overall, this place is fine for those who don't want or need sleep.

Rated 1 out of 5 by NYC2015 Worst ever stay
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.
