W hatever

The room was minimalist stark - the bed was small - even for a queen bed. When asked to be moved - they informed me that I was in a MEGA room and to have a king sized bed - I would have to be down-graded to a superior - which they refused to do. No coffee maker in the room. The room was clean. As I was there for four nights - after the second night I wanted to have fresh sheets and removed the sheets from the bed to encourage them to place fresh ones - they simply remade the bed with the old sheets. Staff was friendly. Had only one meal there - breakfast was adequate. Drinks at the lobby bar were good. Check out was a breeze. Good location. National next door (cafe) was fabulous!

New york on my mind.

The location of the hotels is very good. Close to practically everything. The staff was friendly and helpful with all our needs. The room was small, but cozy, the AC was broken but it was fixed very fast. The bed was beautiful but very uncomfortable for my taste, the room is not very dark to sleep, the light from the hall way, the clock radio the Ipod stand and the mini bar drove me nuts, did not get a good nights rest. We did not have meals at the hotel but where told of a great breakfast place a couple of blocks away, The Comfort Diner, it was very good and cheap. Overall the stay was good, next time I will be prepared for my good night sleep. One more thing the weather was great!!!

Just ok

Overall the hotel was clean and the location is great for shopping and dining. 3 blocks from Saks and 5th avenue. The room was extremely small. I know it's New York but this is by far the smallest hotel that I've seen. Bathroom was very tiny and for short people the mirror is too high to look in. Maybe other rooms are nicer but ours was extremely small.

Great Place to Stay

Very comfortable, stylish hotel! Great location in the middle of the city, very accessible -- easy to get to public transit, Rockefeller center, Times Square, Grand Central Station, etc. Rooms are a bit small, though, and doors are noticeably thinner than I expected. Otherwise, very comfortable stay! Lots of fun!

OK Stay

The stay was just ok. I could not check into my room until after 3:20 and the toilet seat had a bunch of hair and dental floss on the seat. Not very welcoming. The front desk staff was just ok...

the staff did not know what is going on in the hotel

when i checked in they gave me a room on the 10th floor, i went to put my luggage in the room, it was still occupied and the lady who was still in the room got scared. went to the front desk and told them about the incident, they told me they could not check me then, but finally she gave me a room on the 5th. floor, which was smaller than the one on the 10th floor, and did not enjoy my stay.

Great hotel experience

Decided to stay here at the last moment and very glad I happened to decide on this hotel. The room was very clean and stylish. Location was really great in Midtown Manhattan. Everything was great, couldn't ask for more - will definitely be back.

Fabulous Modern Hotel

We had a very good experience at the W. The room was very clean. The staff could not have been any nicer. I did not come in contact with anyone that was not polite. Our concierge was wonderful. We had questions for him at least 3 times a day and he was never annoyed! The location was good. If you are looking for a lot of bars and nightlife surrounding you this would not be your first choice. It is a little quiet (for NY)! Only negative thing I would say is that the rooms are a little small but I had read about that in the reviews.

W on Lexington

The room is small, as expected in the city, but it didn't seem the design allowed for the best use of space. The sheets were not perfectly white. They look like they got caught under the wheel of a cart - grey smudges. The bar and lobby were very welcoming and the staff were extremely helpful.
