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.

Hotel, great, room itself, merely good

Convenient midtown-east location. Staff is very nice. Everything was smooth. Bar and lounge was nice, complete with obligatory over-priced drinks. Room was of course small and there was a big not terribly attractive nor quiet heater/ac unit in there, but if you're using the room mostly for sleeping and maybe lounging in the morning, it's perfectly fine.

W - Great Hotel - friendly staff

The hotel was located near Grand Central Station, which made it easy to attend the U.S. Open Tennis 2010. We took subway #7 to Flushing Meadows Station, which brought us to the entrance of the stadium.

Great fresh cooked breakfast at the nearby Metro Cafe - located nearby - 5 minute walk at the most. Inexpensive menu - good food.

Poor Value for Money

The W hotel was rcommended as a fine design hotel that would finish off our stay in New York. The room was billed as superior but I wonder what it was superior to? The staff were helpfull in moving us from one room to another but the 2nd was even more noisy than the one we ask to move from. 'Cosy' rooms are acceptable in Nwe York but for + $400 per night I at least expect the room to be sound insulated from the extractor fans outside. The design was nothing new and with most design hotels the effort was made in lobby and bar area's rather than the room you pay for. You pay for the location but I would not pay to stay in the W again, or recommend it to anyone else.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Concentrate on 5th avenue from 45th up. Great shopping, all the major brands. Take time to enjoy the experience and theatre of these flagship stores.

Excellent weekend trip

The W Hotel was just perfect for our weekend trip in NY City. The room although is small was very comfortable and very clean. The bedroom was very clean and the pressure in the shower was great. Also The W hotel is very focused in comfort and individuality so they will do what ever is necessary to provide a good stay in their hotel.

Nice and Efficient

W Hotel on Lexington was nicer than some hotels I have stayed in NYC, but the Cozy room was just that - small. The bar was fully stocked (in the dorm-sized refrigerator), but we fount convenience sttores around the corner and bought our own stuff.On check-out we were charged 6.00 for something we didn;t use, and they took it off the bill with no argumnent. The lounge/bar on the first floor was comfortable and congenial, but we spent most of the time out and around. We walked to and from Times Square a few times, and took a taxi once - fare was 7.50.
