The only problem I had was that the room smeeled very musty and or the washroom wasn't cleaned well enough.

When you have a problem with the room assigned don't send the customer to a room that has other problems.

My husband and I stayed at the W New York this past weekend because we had an event to attend. First off, the room was entirely way too small and clostrophobic. I attempted to contact someone to see if there was another room we could switch to (we were willing to pay) but I couldn't get in touch with anyone. I left a message (after being transferred) but my phone call was never returned. I didn't have time to hunt someone down because we had somewhere to be. When we returned that night I checked with the front desk and was told that we could switch to another room but it was only 20 more square feet and would cost a good amount of money so we declined. Fast forward to when we were ready to leave, the checkout process took entirely way too long. We were told 15-20 minutes to have our luggage brought down, it took at least 15 minutes at the desk and another 20 minutes to get our car from the garage. We ended up missing the last event because we didn't anticipate waiting over an hour to check out. For the amount of money that we paid, we should at least be comfortable in our room and have our concerns addressed promptly. What a disappointing visit. I will not be staying at the W New York again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by AjitG Disappointing.
This is the first time I've had a disappointing experience in a Starwood hotel. I had read the negatives reviews, but thought I'd take a chance anyway. I was sad that I did.
First--no real recognition of my Gold status or care towards my special requests. I've had other Starwood hotels put more effort before I had Gold status than the W did with Gold status. Polite people at the desk, but civility isn't enough.
Second--the rooms are small and rather uninspiring. Even by NYC standards. Not much is wonderful with the Wonderful rooms, though at least had a basic level of comfort and cleanliness. But a W hotel is expected to give more than basic comfort/cleanliness. I could stay at a lower tier hotel if I just wanted that.
Finally--I got hit with a bunch of extra charges, even though I was on a Cash & Points stay. Never had that happen before--State Tax, Room Tax, Occupancy/Tourism Tax and even a Jarvis Ct Tax. Huh? I didn't go to the Jarvis Ct. And why all the extra taxes when no other NYC-based Starwood hotel has ever charged me them before on a Cash & Points stay?
Yeah. Nickel and dime me, W--what you get in return is no future patronage from me. Was it worth that extra 15 bucks you scammed me on?

Rated 3 out of 5 by jascott My experience with The W NYC
I recently stayed with you all on a four night stay this past weekend, checking out yesterday. I have to say that as a Starwood Platinum member and frequent Starwood guest, although I do enjoy your hotel, the service given to Preferred Platinum members was extremely disappointing – particularly compared to my many stays with various Starwood hotels.
Although I believe the confusion arose from my partner’s pre-booking of the hotel room through a third-party and the complication of adding my Starwood platinum privileges upon arrival, I must say that I am both disappointed that I was not able to receive any credit for this four day stay toward my Starwood account. Furthermore, not only were there no complimentary snacks or beverages offered, as is the case with my stay at other Starwood establishments, but we charged hefty charges for various snack items from the minibar as a result.
I know that these may be standard for your hotel; however, I felt the need to send a note as a frequent Starwood guest to perhaps help future Platinum members to feel more welcome in your hotel. My company members as I often choose to stay with Starwood as our preferred hotel, and I would love to continue this relationship in the future.
