W New York Times Square

Midtown, New York

Virgin rating

The hotel

You may be in the heart of NYC but you’ll enjoy peace and quiet in a W hotel room. Head to The Living Room, complete with DJs and an extensive drinks list! The hotel’s Blue Fin Restaurant is also highly recommended, and comes complete with a sushi bar. If that's not enough, there's Dos Caminos serving Mexican fare, and a margarita bar! Directly facing the bright lights of Broadway, a dramatic, floating, stainless steel staircase leads the way to a semi-private alcove dining area where guests can kick-back and listen to the music of Miles Davis, John Coltrane and Dizzy Gillespie. A wonderful place to stay for couples, friends and family, you’ll also enjoy the W’s famous Whatever/Whenever service – nothing is too much trouble for the staff, all you have to do is ask!

Decided to stay a W New York - Times Square since it was close to Times Square and offered good views of the city. Also, it was within walking distance of places we planned to visit. The hotel is very nice but showed some wear and tear in some areas. Check-in staff was excellent. He provide me great parking options and was very pleasant. We had a suite which was very nice. Only complaint was the pull out sofa bed was not comfortable at all. In my experience, most sofa beds are not too comfortable anyway, but the one in our room had a visible sag in the middle when pulled out. Tried sleeping on it the first night but it was not good. I had to move to the adjoining chaise lounge, which was more comfortable and slept on this for our 3 night stay. Maybe a new firmer mattress would do the trick for the sofa bed in this room. The bed in the adjoining room was just fine. Bathrooms were roomy for New York. TV's and electrical outlets were plentiful. The view from our windows were also very nice. Rooms were really quiet and we didn't even notice if anyone else was on our floor. Overall, had a great stay at W and would stay again on a future visit. Read less

Planned a family getaway and was excited about staying at the W Hotel. What a disappointment! Rooms are in need of a renovation and deep cleaning. Moldy, dirty bathroom and overall dusty and in need of cleaning. Simply disappointing and shocked at the condition of the rooms.

Tiny rooms, terrible space, dark rooms, terrible amenities and also very noisy. Totally a shock to what the photos look like. We paid extra to be in this hotel for its name/brand, however very disappointed when we arrived. Staff are nice, good location.

Got upgraded to a 46th floor corner room with amazing views of the city and Hudson River (platinum member). Very roomy and quiet. Fun lounge on the 7th floor - Patrick makes amazing French martinis. Seriously… for a very reasonable rate (for NYC) - pretty perfect. Thank you to everyone at the hotel for making it wonderful. Read less

We arrived expecting from online pics and description to have a room with Times Square views. I paid extra for this room. This room was the worst for views. I could see other hotels but not Times Square. It has a weird entrance and lobby dark and not very inviting to sit and enjoy the hotel. There was a strange graffiti area , not sure what that was about. I had to reach over a built in desk to see the street below and I saw a building under construction. I paid alot extra to this room with views. It was very disappointing. The bathroom has glass walls and my daughter took a shower and the door was stuck. If I was not there she would not be able to get out. I understand the hotel was renovated but it is terrible. The views are everything and they did a terrible job. They need restaurant that is much better and elegant. I am a big Marriott Bonvoy memeber and I would not stay here again. Read less
