    For a quiet, relaxing, time in New York, I recommend a "Cozy Room" at the W Hotel The room was quiet, the bed very comfy, and excellent service. Each request was responded to quickly and with a smile.

    One of the greatest W properties in the world. Spacious rooms with high ceilings, free wifi and great lobby scene. Modern stylings in historic building give it a unique NYC touch.

    First of all you must dine at Olive then party upstairs in suite. This is Lindsey Lohan's spot we have seen her there. One of the best hotels in NY to chill and dine.

    Eat the lobby apples. They're real and free. Also, they're apples.

    SPG Platinum upgrades are few and far between at this property. I've stayed here 12+ times over past couple of years and best I've received is spectacular room. Upgrades better at other NYC starwood
    CARLOS REDMONDMarch 24, 2013
    love any W hotel. The architecture, the "coolness" of it; the top notch service. I was upgraded so my room was probably bigger than the standard but great for a NYC hotel room.

    Really cute and functional lobby for a quick drink or coffee. Great for a casual client meeting or a meetup spot before you figure out what to do in Union SA.

    Awesome views from the corner suites! Best W in NY. Good chances of upgrades to suites for Platinum SPGs.

    Talk about pimp. Their swanky digs are the perfect place to rest your head during NYC's annual Pride festivities (and any other time of the year). Thanks for the support guys!

    When New York has an important game at MSG, you can find the team stationed here the night before. All of New York hopes that Carmelo Anthony & co. have extended reservations here come playoff time.

    This place is ridiculously cold! The hallways and the lounge! Bring a parka even in the summer! Other than that, great!

    SLOWEST. ELEVATORS. EVER. If you're on a low enough floor, learn to love taking the stairs. Heck, ask for a lower floor so you can take the stairs. Save yourself a few eons or so.

    Stay anywhere else. The rooms are tiny. The staff was pretty rude to us when we tried to get room service. Movies cost 20 dollars. Room service charges a $10 delivery fee. WIFI IS NOT FREE.
