W Hoboken

Hoboken, New York

The hotel

If you’ve done New York before – or just want to do it differently – Hoboken’s coolest hotel gives you a unique take on the city. A waterfront retreat, it has views over the Hudson River to Manhattan’s skyline, but is just a quick subway or PATH train trip from its sights. You can explore your trendy riverside neighbourhood with the complimentary bikes, cycling between cool dining and shopping spots like Carlos Bakery (as seen on TV’s Cake Boss). It’s not just the location that’s fashionable though, with W Hoboken bringing futuristic styling in its social spaces, fun geometric design in its guestrooms, traveller comforts like Bliss® Spa and FIT® Gym (where you can work out to Manhattan views), and fun dining and drinking spaces, including LULU’s nightclub, and Halifax, whose menu’s fuelled by north-east USA’s finest fishermen, farmers, and producers.

Not sure if their Covid protocols include standoffish, virus-denial behavior. You wouldn’t think there was anything unusual going on in the world at this place except they tell you when booking everything that’s closed or unavailable. I didn’t see anything special about room cleanliness, no hand sanitizer, nothing to acknowledge the fact that I could possibly be taking a risk staying at their property. If I had to describe the attitude of the front desk woman at checkin I’d say she was cold and aloof. Parking situation is horrific and not explained at booking - you’re basically on your own, paying a ridiculous rate ($35 each time you go in and out of the garage), or you take your chances on the street, and Hoboken is not car-friendly to begin with. Front desk essentially shrugged and offered no help. The only good thing was the place looked empty. They say they’re keeping occupancy down on purpose but I suspect no one Is staying here, and if that’s the case they might want to cultivate a veneer of warmth and dare I say, appreciation. Oh and their rates are absurd for what you get (basically nothing) -almost $300 a night. I won’t be back. They get 2 stars, one for a clean lobby and one for a nice view of the river. But the latter required no effort on the hotel’s part. Read less

This property seems like it would be an average W during normal times, but they have made unusually draconian cuts during Covid that reduce it to a very overpriced Fairfield Inn (Marriott's most basic chain).

This property seems like it would be an average W during normal times, but they have made unusually draconian cuts during Covid that reduce it to a very overpriced Fairfield Inn (Marriott's most basic chain). Service and amenities are minimal; no parking, no luggage assistance, no food or drink of any kind in the hotel in the morning until after 10am, including no way to get coffee or tea, and no room service. The parking situation is particularly bad; street parking is difficult and the one garage across the street is both expensive ($20-35 each time you go in and out) and often full. Most of the time there is a 15 minute wait to park, and half of the garage has 2" of water on the floor so you need to wear your boots. I would not stay here again under any circumstances until some of these services are restored. I stayed in a Courtyard (another Marriott chain) 2 weeks ago and they had much, much better amenities than this W, including food, coffee, parking, etc. Read less

Despite the nice location, the treatment of the staff is unacceptable. When checking in, I was offered a room with a view to the NY skyline, that was going to be ready in a few hours. When I returned to the reception to find out if it was available, they did not have any records that I was waiting for a room. The treatment from the manager on duty… Read more
Despite the nice location, the treatment of the staff is unacceptable. When checking in, I was offered a room with a view to the NY skyline, that was going to be ready in a few hours. When I returned to the reception to find out if it was available, they did not have any records that I was waiting for a room. The treatment from the manager on duty (Melanie Glenn) was extremely unpolite and unprofessional. Basically, it seemed that I was making this up. Anyhow, despite having selected this hotel several times during trips to the area, I will certainly not come back! Read less

This hotel was amazing. From the start to finish. Check-in process was very fast and quick. Being a silver member was able to get an upgraded view upon request which was a huge plus.

Just called the front desk and they sent one up right away which was awesome. I will defiantly stay here in the future. Read less

Over the course of our visit, we continually received hostile treatment by staff and the front desk. We had a few things delivered, and each time, the front desk refused to have anybody bring it up to us (just dropping it off at our closed door, completely socially distanced.) This was *after* we spoke to someone else at the front desk that said they would be happy to drop it off to our door, and would have W security escort our delivery person to our room. After some time, nobody came up and we called to check in and the front desk person flipped. They continually said “nobody was available to drop it off to us” and fought with us tooth and nail on the phone. Literally, argued. One person even hung up on us. This was after we communicated to them several times that we would not be opening the door, because contrary to how they were treating us, we actually do care about the health and safety of the staff. It made for an extremely stressful visit. We really don’t appreciate the staff acting as if we are putting them at risk or asking for something insane. We spent over $200 for one night. On top of it, the room was clearly falling apart- chipped nightstands, dusty curtains. Pretty gross. Save your money and go to the Holiday Inn. Read less
