Good place to stay at

It´s a great place to stay at. The location is fantastic and the response to guest requirements are fast. The only thing that does not meet the W standard is the bathroom: too little and too squeezed. Room cleanliness, although not bad, could be improved. I would recommend it.

Topaz Thai, in W 56th Street between Americas and 5th Ave. One of the best Thai restaurants I´ve ever tried. Every time I go to NY I eat there at least once.

Typical Midtown NYC Hotel

The hotel was nice, offered all the amenities. We were apparently upgraded to a larger room, thank goodness because it was decent sized (by NYC standards) but the bathroom was super tiny so I can't imagine what the one we originally booked would have been like. Other than that it was exactly as I expected. Clean. Modern. Full Service.

wonderful vacation

The hotel staff was very welcoming. The gentleman helping us check in was super sweet, friendly, and made the whole experience better. Great location to walk to times square, top of the rock, & empire state building. Would recommend to anyone wanting to stay in the heart of Manhattan.

great location great concierge

this hotel is perfectly located, near the 5fth ave, and 15 min walk of central park, appart of the tourism. you can. do lots of things walking. the concierge helped me to find very good places where to eat and sometimes they made my reservations. the only thing i could say is that the rooms are very small, and i would like more natural ligth in the whole hotel.

the W midtown

Cozy room, perfect no matter where you are from. Great location! Near Rockefeller & Times Square, perfect for the ball drop event on NYE. Near the 6 subway and perfect for getting around all through Manhattan. Finally, great food spots all around the hotel, from take-out to sit-down locations. The bar downstairs, the Whiskey Blue, is also a great place to have a good time.

Would Not Recommend

The smallest room size in my opinion accounts to little more than a scam: they are not usable and are there to offer a lower price point and get you to the hotel where you are very likely to pay for an upgrade. Ours also happened to have an ice vending machine right next to the door (please, note: not across the hallway or in a separate niche, but virtually in front of our door). I travel to NYC 1-2 times per year and have stayed at many hotels: some good, some not so good, but overall this is the worst value I have found in the city so far. On the upside, the lobby is small, cozy, and the design is nicely done. The hotel also has a very convenient location from both a tourist and business perspective.
