    By far my favorite hotel I've stayed at. The 5th floor lobby is gorgeous and plays great music at all hours. WTC site is literally right outside the front door. Rooms are gorgeous with huge windows.

    Try a Downtown Mule — a Moscow Mule with more of a kick — at the Living Room Terrace at the W Downtown. The fifth-floor terrace bar has a somewhat space age vibe, with undulating walls and ceiling. Read more

    W hotels are generally failsafe when it comes to cool, and this one is no exception. The 5th-floor Living Room Bar & Terrace allows you to ogle the newly topped off One World Trade Center. Read more

    By far the nicest, quietest, roomiest W in the city. Room 2104, while across from elevator is quiet w gorgeous view of the 9/11 memorial.

    Phenomenal service (as with any W). Bar and terrace are spectacular in that they aren't overcrowded and offer a beautiful view at night of freedom tower. Hard to catch a cab, but close subway

    Great service plus the north-facing rooms have a great view of the WTC site. The only drawback is that the neighborhood is a bit deserted after 7pm.

    Very nice, Friday nights the bar is filled with underage drinkers, they are very strict about the terrace times. Same great W service. Front desk and drivers were great.

    This hotel is right on Ground Zero. The entrance faces the entrance to the park. If that bothers you, then be warned. But otherwise a great W hotel.

    The bar is one of the better hotelbars on manhattan. When in party mode on Thursday or Friday, the dj-set at W downtown is a place to start.

    Fancy. Bathrooms near the lobby are labeled "WC" and are unisex in case you're trying to find them.

    Cool spot. Clean. And good people. Be safe the staff may smack you up for free but the rooms cost.

    Ever tortured by fame, Drake raps on Young Money's "Bedrock" that he's "at the W, but I can't meet you in the lobby," following that up with "Girl, I gotta watch my back, cause I'm not just anybody." Read more
