Editorial review:

This is New York City's original W hotel and it has very small rooms, yet is a chic spot. There's a spa with Bliss bathroom products, a restaurant that serves delicious food, and a lively and youthful bar scene. Make sure you look your best here, because you're sure to be judged.

    The hotel and rooms were beautifully designed and for New York the space provided was quite good compared to other hotesl I have stayed in.

    The bathroom was very small and the heating did not work when we arrived I did have to call customer services for this.

    Enjoyed my stay. Made to feel very welcome. This hotel has a boutique feel to it,it is so unlike the normal bussiness chain hotels it competes with in Midtown. Perfect location close to 51st street subway and Grand Central Station. Also short walk away from the park and all shops on 5th avenue.Staff are all very friendly and helpful and the room although smallish(like nearly all New York hotels) was very well eqiuiped and comfatable. The bar is very lively at night if that is your thing.I will stay again if in New York.

    The location is perfect and the people at the lobby are helpful.

    The first night I had a friend over and we get a shitty room at the third floor even I booked a more expensive and bigger room. That was the only one that was left. I was not happy about it and told them about it. They told me at the lobby they will hook me up with a good one the day after when I was staying alone. At 7:30 am the facility people called us awake because there was a leak in our bathroom. I asked them if they could come in the afternoon because we were sleeping, but that was not possible because there was a major leak. So they had to come up and check it out at 7:30 in the morning but they could not find anything. At 10:00 am I went to the lobby and asked them what it was about the stupid morning wake up. But they did not know anything about it. I asked them that I wanted to change my room because my friend was leaving and they gave me right away another one, but nothing special or extra for the inconvenience they made. The first day I got an underpriced room and the second day just a room what a paid for. So no extra to compensate me for my lost on the first day and nothing for unwanted morning wake up at 7:30 on a Saturday morning.

    Location

    Rooms not up to the standard ive come to expect from other W hotels worldwide. My bill was incorrect and was overcharged by 1500 dollars. 18th floor was like a building site - open construction work by ice machine. Was awoken at 8am by drilling and banging on floor above me. So loud could not be heard over the phone. Was offered breakfast as compensation which they then charged me for.

    My stay at the hotel was great. The place has a young lively vibe. The staff ws excellent and helpful. The room was clean. The concierge service excellent. I absolutely loved the place. The rooms are a bit small, but the hotel has a luggage storage facility so if you store your bags in i,it is quite comfortable. I stayed in the wonderful queen room and it was very comfortable. Excellent stay.

    Loved it!
