Richard and Gianni were great! they assisted me and made sure we were taken care of all day! And thanks to Sean, he saved the day! Sean made sure we had a great experience.

Java gave us a surprise upgrade at check- in that has turned me into a W customer for life. Ivan is the reason we ended every night out back at the W bar. Pool service every day was fantastic, and we especially loved the sushi, ceviche and poke bowls. This is our new favorite “luxe”hotel! Read less

Came to the W on family girls trip to celebrate my niece’s graduation. We were blown away from the moment we stepped foot in the lobby. The whole property is stunning but the service is what really sets this place apart. Java at the front desk got us set up in our room immediately and was an awesome personality to be around. Standout staff like Tyler at the pool and Ivan in the bar made our trip so fun. Sole & insider team left treats in our room and congrats balloons the next night - surprises that made our stay even more special. After our experience, I wouldn’t stay anywhere else! Read less

Great to chill out and get pampered. Ask for a room from x10 and up otherwise it’s noisy from collins avenue. And : go to the pool and see Anna and Alex! They will get you chairs and umbrellas for your preferred spot (sun or shade) and of course water and suncream…
