Rated 4 out of 5 This hotel satisfied our needs
We were attending a medical seminar at the W and thought we had reservations at the W @ Time Square where the meeing was being held. A mix up occured and we were listed at the W on Lexington Ave. We prepaid our visit and could not switch hotels. We found the hotel to be comfortable and it satisfied our needs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by crashbangwallop Could be great
Nice, stylish hotel. Rooms small but modern and clean. Bathrooms tiny but do the job I guess. Biggest issue I had this trip was that for two of the nights there seemed to be parties going on in rooms until about 3 in the morning and then people leaving, presumably from the party at 5-6 am. The result was little to no sleep as the soundproofing is non existent - doors slamming, ice machines, people shouting...to be honest it was awful.

Rated 1 out of 5 by btraveler7 terrible odor!
I have stayed here numerous times before (30) with my spouse who is a platinum guest and generally get a very nice room with him. The room I was provided (non-platinum!) smelled of urine and though I was moved--it was a completeley horrid experience. I checked in at 5, quicky changed and left the room (and lowered the air to 70 since it was freezing on 64) and didn't return til midnight. When I returned there was a strong odor and I had to move after attempting to go to bed; the odor was so strong I simply could not stay in the room.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Dv23 W Lexington Needs improvement
this was the third time I stayed at a W hotel and I would not recommend the W on Lexington to anyone. the rooms look worn out as the carpets and furniture look terrible. The room had an odor as the whole hotel did.. I would have a really tough time staying at a W hotel again. the staff in the hotel was also pretty rude as the woman who checked us in seemed like she didn't care to be working there .
My fiance was supposed to stay here for her bachelorette party, but she is now cancelling it due to the experience we had..
I only complain when it needs to be done and unfortunately, this is one of those times.

Safe and faucet in room not working properly. Housekeeping staff not proactive in identifying it before check-in and took two days of complaining to get it fixed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LandedSPG Barely a W-Hotel, but not the worst option!
Ok, I got the W-Lexington (as I call it) ranked higher than the W-Time Square. I can justify myself, so be warned.
If you must stay at a W in NYC and you can't afford the W-Time Square prices and for some reason don't want to venture downtown, then this is your only logical choice, unless you really want to slum it (W-standards) and walk over to the W-Union.
The prices, although steep and out of whack for the age of the hotel and location are still more affordable than the W-Union and W-Times Square. However, if you want a good neighborhood style location and want to tell people you were/are staying at the W, then come here. I can't recommend it over your other alternatives, but I can suggest it if you can find a good promotion or a geographical reason.
I really don't know if this place even has facilities other than rooms but I can tell you there is no sense to the true whenever/whatever experience the W-brand tries to create.
Also, expect zero PLAT benefits and generally limited service.
This hotel is well, well below the category 6, 5 or 4 standards for any W you would come to expect. In fact, I dare say, prepare for category 3 standards. But it's still a W, whatever that means anyway.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Abrab I love this place anyway
People at the reception are incredibly kind and I love the location. As often the room had problem: this time was the bathtub, with the water control broken handle. The first day I had only cold water... After fixing the second day the water was luke warm...

Rated 1 out of 5 by 4Joe21 The rooms are very, very tiny.
Very disappointed by the size of the room.
