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.

This is a really nice hotel with many amenities. I love the bed it was very comfortable and the shower was also very modern. The view of NYC was amazing from this location. The best thing about this hotel is the customer service and Jorel was amazing. One of the best hotel receptionist a hotel I have ever encountered.

We stayed here last night and everything was perfect. From the start, Juan at the front desk was fabulous... very helpful, extremely nice and a super representative for the W. We were really impressed with him and he started off our wedding anniversary making us smile. Thanks Juan from room 413! The hotel is very pretty and super clean. The room was absolutely impeccably clean. Very well appointed, everything looked brand new. The staff of the hotel were all really nice. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. The valet was fast as lightning! A great group. The breakfast was really great. Eggs, potatoes, sausage, oatmeal, fresh juices and breads....Our stay was actually perfect. We highly recommend this hotel. Read less

This hotel is beautiful and located right on the waterfront in Hoboken. It is a great location for exploring not only Hoboken but is also within walking distance to the PATH train into NYC.

This hotel is beautiful and located right on the waterfront in Hoboken. It is a great location for exploring not only Hoboken but is also within walking distance to the PATH train into NYC. My room was spacious, very clean, and had a partial view of the Hudson and NYC skyline. It is expensive, but because they are truly the only hotel right in Hoboken you don't have much choice if you need to be right in town as I had to. So, if you're looking for an economical way to tour NYC but trying to avoid the costs of hotels and parking there, you could find better options in Jersey City and other places nearby for that. For my trip I needed to be right in Hoboken so this was my only choice. That said, I am so glad they have such a beautiful property and I would stay again the next time I need to be there. Lastly, I would like to mention how friendly and helpful the front desk staff were to me, at both check in and check out. Most times they are the true first impression of the hotel and they did a wonderful job of making me feel welcome! Read less

I first want to start by saying that my experience at the W Hoboken from start to finish was absolutely exceptional. At check in Juan could see that I was freezing and actually placed a heater by my hands to keep me warm during the check in process. Both Maria & Juan went above and beyond and actually surprised me with a birthday surprise (tray of… Read more
I first want to start by saying that my experience at the W Hoboken from start to finish was absolutely exceptional. At check in Juan could see that I was freezing and actually placed a heater by my hands to keep me warm during the check in process. Both Maria & Juan went above and beyond and actually surprised me with a birthday surprise (tray of cupcakes) in my room upon arrival. I was not expecting that and it was very sweet! I forgot the other guest service agents name (however, he is from New Orleans) and he was able to place my cousin on the same floor as me which made it very helpful! He was very friendly and guest service oriented. The rooms were very spacious and clean & if you can get a view of the Hudson ... you will not be disappointed! You have a wonderful staff here at the W Hoboken that did not disappoint & I look forward to my next trip back at the property. Thank you Thank you Thank You ! Read less

My family and I stayed here in April last year and had an amazing stay. We only had the room so I couldn’t comment on anything else but the staff were so friendly and willing to help with anything. We were going to Jersey Mills (highly recommend) and the staff happily helped us book it. The room was spacious with a mini fridge and massive tv,… Read more
My family and I stayed here in April last year and had an amazing stay. We only had the room so I couldn’t comment on anything else but the staff were so friendly and willing to help with anything. We were going to Jersey Mills (highly recommend) and the staff happily helped us book it. The room was spacious with a mini fridge and massive tv, not that we used it! The view was by far the best part about the room we were lucky enough to have the view straight over Manhattan skyline. We were recommended this hotel after our relatives stayed here at New year 2017. I’m so glad they did! Our trip was to New York City, so initially we were planning to stay in Manhattan but I’m so glad we stayed here instead. I’m not a city girl myself so Hoboken is the perfect city if you’re the same. The metro station is a 10 minute walk away. Would definitely recommend this hotel to other people and come back here myself. Read less
