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 location of the hotel is great, and the rooms are clean and confortable.

                The staff at the hotel reception were very rude and difficult to deal with.

                Rooms were smaller than expected.

                The location of the hotel was great.

                The hotel was diappointing, the staff were not friendly, the facilities were reasonable for a 4 star hotel. Understandably the rooms in nyc tend to be small, we stayed in a Wonderful room which has a small bathroom, poor lighting and generally cramped. Watch out for the minibar - if you move drinks out of the fridge to put your own it, you get automatically charged!

                Check in was quick. The location was great! I would recommend the hotel based on location.

                The room was super tiny. I've stayed in New York before and was suprised to have a closet for my hotel room, especiallly for what we paid. It would have been nice to be greeted by the staff other than at check in and check out.

                the location was superb and it has a certain contemporary vibe that makes you feel good. The Guys on the doors and outside hailing taxi's were superb but the people manning the front desk were arrogant, obnoxious and most unhelpful....very off putting for a customer!

                as above the front desk staff. Everyting about the hotel is great apart from these people.

                I liked the design of the lobby, the ambience once you arrive, the room design is also nice. The people that stay there and also the festive ambience at the bar at night.

                I did not like the room service, and the bathrooms that are very very very small. not really practicle.

                Only staying in New York. The hotel is very well located but that's all. Well actually the have a pretty good bar.

                The rooms were poorly illuminated, the bathroom was tiny, there were noises all the time, housekeeping knock at the door about 8 am all days. Staff was rude.

                The cleanness of the rooms and restrooms, the excellent hotesl staff service and specially the happy atmosphere of the place.

                It's difficult to find something bad about the hotel, but the bar could be less sensitive.

                The hotel provided early check-in (around 11am) and the doormen were very helpful. Internet was free however, breakfast was not included. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would definitely go back the next time we are in nyc.

                To short to really comment but it was an overall pleasent experience plus good value for money. Stayed at the Hudson hotel before and it was not worth the money.

                The doors to the rooms seem to be not too solid but hard to say.

                We loved the room although we found it to be a bit small but most hotel rooms in New York are small. The concierge services was brilliant and the tickets we got to Chicago were absolutely brilliant. It was great having Whiskey Blue bar nearby and as we travelled with a group of friends it was the perfect meeting point as well as for nightcaps..Loved the hotel and the location was perfect!

                Really nice hotel, great location for exploring NY, great reception / foyer / bar area, the room was very modern and spotless. The room size mihgt be considered on the small side for the US, probably more on a par with a European city room size, but it was still comfortable enough. Check out was automated, a great option, saving alot of time on the final morning.

                Room was spacious for nyc standards as we had booked the mega room. Bliss bathroom products a nice perk, as is the free Acura "chaffeur" service which drops you off at any part of the city (just be sure to book in advance as the service is rather popular). Location a good base for exloring the main tourist attractions.

                Service was abominable - from start to finish, speaking particularly of the reception staff, the manager and the concierge. Hotel is fantastic as long as you don't need to interact with anyone working there, which is certainly not something to be said of an international 5* hotel in a first rate city. What a shame. To think that this is supposed to be the "original" w hotel which catapulted the entire franchise - management/staff, please get your act together. You are souring the name of a well-respected global franchise.
