Great NY experience

Went to New York with the gf for 3 days to pretty much go to all the touristy places. The W hotel on 49 and Lexington was very centralized in a nice location in Manhattan. The hotel was really nice and so was the staff. Rooms were smaller than what we are used to in Miami but from my understanding so are most of the hotels in NY but we did not think it was a big deal. The subway was 2 blocks away which we used for pretty much everything and there were a few breakfast places within the same block that were also pretty good. My overall experience was great.

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

If you are staying for 3 days or longer, I would recommend the weekly subway pass that costs 30 dollars per person. Can be used as many times as you want (with a wait time of 18 min apart which should not really affect anyone) and it'll probably save you some bucks in the long run.

Hotel located near everything!

This is a great hotel to stay in. The room was clean, the hotel was very modern and the staff was nice. I do however thought the person they hired to help you obtain a cab outside was quiet rude but other than that great experience. The hotel was near 5th avenue, Rockefeller center and Madison square garden.

A fantastic stay

Having stayed at W hotels around the US at around Manhattan, I can attest that this one provides an excellent balance of W style and amenities with affordable pricing and a great location. It's not as flashy or expensive as the Time Square W, yet is located close to everything you may need and offer a fantastic value for guests.

The W on Lex is great

The location couldn't be more convenient - close to the park, close to subway stops, walking distance from a lot. The hotel itself is very nice and very clean. The room we had was larger than many I have experienced in New York (though not huge - by any means). There is decent food and drinks on location. Overall, really good, and I would go back.

Can do much better

The W is in a great location, has a good gym and public spaces. The bathrooms are tiny; the service on the room was not good. And the room itself was small even by NY standards and laid out in an awkward way. Everything is extra, $3-4 for a cup of coffee in the lobby in the morning. The staff was friendly although only the people outside were friendly. There seem to be a fair number of people walking around without any specific function.

Great location, but a tad overpriced

The location was fantastic as far as being near everything we intended to be visiting. I understand that hotel rooms in NYC are super small and pricey. I actually thought our room felt larger than I had anticipated, so that was nice. The lobby and bar/lounge area were impressive and swanky. I enjoyed that part a lot. The Bliss products were also great. My only complaints were that there wasn't another blanket option (the comforter was too warm and there was no coverlet or lighter blanket in a closet) and the walls and trim were dirty. For over $350/night, I expect that someone could have easily taken a rag to the noticeably dirty areas.

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.
