This hotel is very modern and beautiful. However, the room are very small, and is you are claustrophobic do not take the elevator.

Rated 4 out of 5 by loumeg22 Nice Hotel in a great location
I enjoyed my stay with the location of this hotel suiting my needs for the weekend. Rooms are quite small but as expected in New York. My room was comfortable and had great amenities. Only downfall was that the walls are not shound insulated therefore you can hear your neighbors, so they can hear you as well. Staff is friendly and helpful. Hotel lobby and restaurants are lively with a nice interior decor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sweetiecino Small Room, Loud Hotel
Hotel is convenient and close to shops, central park and Times Square but thats probably the main benefits.
I did not expect too much from W Hotel as I had already been told that the room would be small. When I got there, the room was smaller than expected (even smaller than rooms in London) and what was surprising, the room did not even have a bath tub, which I would have expected in a 5 star hotel. The bathroom was TINY and the mirror was not big enough so that I could even see myself properly. The other thing about the hotel is that if you want some peace and quiet, do not stay in this hotel. The music is pumped as soon as you walk into the foyer (as if you are attending a night club) and some of the rooms - especially if facing the main street, will be noisy morning, afternoon and night. Would definitely not recommend for families or people who are light sleepers.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Matt83 Staff Needs to Improve Responsiveness
When I checked in, the front desk clerk was on the phone for 5-10 minutes and didn't pay me much attention. It was around 11 and my family and I were already tired. I didn't appreciate that. Also called for an extra blanket and the staff said, "can't do it man, we don't have anymore." I find it hard to believe that a hotel property would run out of extra blankets for their guest. On the day of checkout, the guy at the front of the hotel, who retrieved the cars for guest, told us to walk over to the parking garage and our car would be waiting for us. So my family and I walked the 3 blocks with all of our bags. When we got there, the people in central parking told us our car had been taken to the hotel. I called over to the hotel and asked could they bring our car back to the parking garage and the reply was, "no." So my family and I had to walk all the way back to the W, with our bags just to get the car. This type of service is unacceptable for a Starwood property. Heck, it's unacceptable for any Hotel! I have been a loyal Platinum guest for a while, but didn't feel like it while staying at this property. Will only stay here again if it's the only choice!

Rated 4 out of 5 by cntrygrl Stay was better than last time but not great
If it were not for work I would not have selected the W again..but it was better than the last visit. The kitchen was open and therefore in room dining was available, the gym was not the cleanest but functional. The room had less issues - still dissapointed that no free wifi...I find it silly that you can go to a budget hotel and get free wifi but a Starwood in midtown costing >300 dollars can't provide free wifi...

Rated 4 out of 5 by amelia2001 Great Location With Unique Caveats
I enjoyed staying the centrally-located W New York, though I found the service somewhat lacking and the fitness center pretty outdated (no hand weights under 15 lbs?). The clubby atmosphere wouldn't work for all and I actually found the rooms, though small, quite nice. My parents stayed in a comparably-priced hotel on the West Side, with three times as much room, so you are certainly paying for the location here.

Kudos to the amazing Front Desk Team.
Monica, Andrew Glagolev
and Mario were amazing and truly excellent customers service. They were very warm and pleasant as well.
Jacqui the housekeeping attendant on the 7th floor was very pleasant and very nice as well.
I had cancelled my other hotel reservation and just decided to stay at W New York because we were treated well in this hotel.
We will surely come back !

Rated 5 out of 5 by pltrezzajr This place rocks!
I took my wife up to NYC for a romantic weekend and selected the W New York in midtown based on the photos we saw online. The reality was even better than the pix. Wow, what an incredible hotel. Modern design, chic styling, DJ spun music in the lobby/lounge. This place has it all for those who like to travel in style. Thanks and we will definitely look at staying at other W hotels when we travel elsewhere.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lgmom Good Experience. Small Room
Staff here is excellent. Upon check in was told of room upgrade and that the two reserved rooms would be connected. Accomodated my request for a room on a higher floor. Even with upgrade, room was incredibly small, especially the bathroom. One piece of furniture had an obvious burn mark. Room was cleaned well each day. Lobby was under construction but was not a
problem. Appreciated everything. Thanks !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JZ88 This hotel was amazing!
I have never been so impressed with a hotel. The bed was probably the most comfortable thing I have ever slept on. The staff were accommodating and incredibly polite. This hotel deserves an immense amount of credit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by frenchy415 W Hotel Mid Town
This hotel is probably best suited for leisure traverler or for a one night visit. The extremely small room with office chair provides little to no opportunity to relax after day in office. The lounge is very relaxing if you are with colleagues, otherwise pretty loud and busy. Appreciate the recognition of SPG member and the staff could not have been friendlier. Very different W experience from others.

Rated 3 out of 5 by FreqWestinGuest Wi-Fi problems
The W on Lex is in a great location and is generally a nice place to be. But the rooms could be cleaner and every time I go I find it difficult to obtain Wi-Fi access. Their efforts to monetize Wi-Fi access on a per device level are obnoxious in and of themselves, but it adds insult to injury when you cannot gain access without calling a third party and working with the access provider for 30 minutes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by kel3388 No thanks, no comfort here
The hotel had completely uncomfortable furniture in the sitting area.It was impossible to just sit down and relax on anything. The Bathroom door is a sliding glass door, next to the bed, which lacks any and all privacy. I can't think of anything more more ridiculous and inappropriate ! You can't even turn on the light let alone use the toilet without disturbing your partner. No thanks, never again!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Mike4567 Very Tired Looking Room
The room was not in very good shape. It looked like some piece of artwork was missing from the wall. The caulking in the bathroom was a mess. The bathtub didn't look clean and was pitted. The bed was extremely hard. I was charged for in-room wireless internet, which I consider to be outrageous considering the per night price of the room.

Rated 3 out of 5 by flyer problem
Room key/computer system was inop for most of the afternoon and evening at checkin requiring security to escort each guest to their rooms. Certainly not equipped with enough personnel to do this which meant long waits and frustrations. My Ambassadore contacted the hotel and Stephanie gave the appropriate words and extra points as a consideration for the problem. Appreciate the way it was handled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jenshi our anniversary trip
on March 1,
.We stayed at your facility during our
anniversary trip in New York City,
we had a fantastic time together, thankfully, weather is on our side,no ice-snow storm,
room is very cozy, comfy, nice view , except the shower
water pressure was not strong enough, maybe is because that we stay at 10th floor.
The receptionist Erin,
when we check in, she has smile on her face, very professionalism
polite, couteous ,which is very important to us.
I was under impression that I would get Free Wifi and complimentary
movie--that was okay, we were there for our special trip anyway.
try not to do anything else.
I am not sure, if I get extra bonus points when we checked out,
( Erin told me that she will take care of it for my SPG account)
Thats's all for now,
over all I will rate this facility 4 stars.
thanks, look forward to going back with another special event.
Have a blessed season.

Excellent hotel with a staff that was very helpful.
Great bar in lobby and club attached
The quick easy coffee/breakfast option in the lobby each morning was excellent...good coffee
Only negative was that the rooms were a little small but minor inconvenience
Beds were very comfortable

Rated 4 out of 5 by JFly49 Location THE BEST and Staff OUTSTANDING
Location is everything in Manhattan. This W is in the heart of Midtown Manhattan on Lexington Ave/49th. Near everything including subways. Customer experience at this W is always EXCELLENT, and staff and management always helpful. I have been at this specific W 6 times in the last year and have had the same customer experience each time....Simply Outstanding. I plan to stay here in March.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CrisB Improvement
My stay this time was a big improvement over my last stay in 2009. The staff then was excellent, including and especially the women who checked me in and out.
However, the room's toilet had used toilet paper around the rim. This obviously calls into question the entire cleanliness of the room, and whether the staff and management's attention to detail is adequate to running a fine hotel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Carolyn53 staff was outstanding but bring your earplugs
Room on the 10th floor wss comfortable but walls were so thin I could hear the person coughing during the night in the next room.
Concierge Staff was exceptionable-- knowledgeable about restaurants and suggestions for activities Location of the hotel was perfect for shopping, dining, Broadway, and access to subway .
If I stay again, I would request a different floor or larger room..

Rated 3 out of 5 by NPVA Smallest King Beds
The King beds aren't True King Beds. We sleep on one at home so we were disappointed that the W considers an oversized Queen a King. I measured the width and I estimate they are about 8+ inches shorter than a True King bed.
Also, the a/c never went below 73 degrees. We complained 3 times and they even changed out the a/c unit but it still was only went from 79 degrees to 73 degrees.

Rated 2 out of 5 by jcb1123 I was very disappointed
I thought that this hotel looked great from the pics on line. When I checked into the first room the toilet had overflowed and there was trash on the bed and on the desk. They switched me to a different room but it was still dirty and very disapointing. The gym facility and hotel lobby were nice and the hallways smelled good. The rooms all need cleaning and the staff needs to smile.

We stayed here 5 years ago and I proposed to a beautiful lady who is now my wife. It was our 1 year anniversary and I am so glad that we were able to stay in the same hotel where the propsal took place. What a great weekend in an amazing hotel. The staff was much friendlier than I remember and all I can say is thank you. We had a blast this past weekend and we will be back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by surprisemyniece niece's birthday
My niece is staying here in NY for training for her new job, but traveling on her 21st birthday. I wanted to surprise her since she is away from fiancé and friends for this important birthday. I called and spoke with the concierge. I explained what I wanted to do and why. The woman I first spoke with put 2 complimentary drink tickets on her "check-in" information and suggested I check the online amenities avail and gave me a contact person to email. I didn't really see anything on there that I had in mind so contacted David N. He helped me with sending a piece of cheesecake to room and had "happy birthday" written on the plate. I ordered balloons from another location but to his attention and David personally took them to her room! I was very impressed with the service and help from the hotel and David. My niece was surprised to see the things in her room! Thank you so much for helping me from ARIZONA :)
