I was not aware the lobby was under renovation. If I knew, I would probably not have come.

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

Rated 1 out of 5 by nylady Bad Experience
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 1 out of 5 by kj2014 Not a typical Starwood property
I am a Starwood Loyal and I have to stay this is by the worst property I have stayed in. You have to insert the key in the elevator and 9 of 10 times it doesn't work...you have to call the security or someone to make it work or get your key replaced. Saw same thing happened with my colleagues as well as some other guests.
Hot water - Plumbing needs a overhaul too. The hot water takes forever to come. First time, after waiting for 5 minutes I assumed that may be hotel has run out of hot water...10 minutes later it started trickling through.
Lounge - There's no lounge (understand) but the hotel staff is not active/proactive in telling about the alternate options. Had to prompt a few time and even after that the answer was pretty vague
Room keys - Same story as elevator but not as bad.
Room size - Don't understand the layout or the room size. It's like living in a dungeon. There's no easy accessible port for setting up the iron table. All the ports are behind the table and very difficult to access.
Other issues - No floor mat in bathroom the first day. Housekeeping left it second day. No water bottles for Platinum (maybe not a norm for this property)..
Only positive - it's closest Starwood property to work.

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?
