I've stayed at a Lot of W hotels around the world, given i'm an spg member and they are generally young and vibrant, but this was certainly the least impressive. Hotel is dated now, rooms nothing special and the maseuse I got was at least 90 years old, but too late to say anything so I cringed it out for... More

I stay here regularly for business. It can get a bit pricey since its in Manhattan, but they always upgrade me and give me free internet. I love its location - so I can walk to most of my meetings in Mid-Town. Friendly, attentive staff, and good gym. Rooms can be a bit small if you don't get a suite.... More

We stayed at the W Union Sq. for 2 nights. This hotel is one of the very first W hotels, and it lived up to our expectation! A really nice and safe location on Lexington near Park Ave. East side, a lot better area than to stay in Times Square area where it is just too crowded, full of tourists.... More

Stayed at the W for our 10 year anniversary. Had complementary champagne and chocolates, which was a fantastic touch (easily bought !). Room was very plush as was the reception. Bathroom was amazing. The best thing though was the location which put us right in the middle of the action. Cannot recommend highly enough. In fact, we are coming back... More

This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel. The first time was fine, though the room was small, we understand it's NYC and that's often what you get. This time was different though.

I stay at a W Hotel whenever I am in NYC, whether for business or pleasure. The rooms are small, but well-appointed, with comfortable beds and extravagant linens, and Bliss products in the bath. The staff are excellent, and will do their best to accommodate any request. Location is perfect.

I have to say, I expected more from this hotel. Service was beyond average, which in my opinion can make or break a hotel. Rooms are just large enough to fit a bed & desk - yes, definitely expected in NY though. It is an excellent location. Bed was super comfy. Room was very dark, but I didn't mind. The... More

We spent 5 days in W Hotel - Lexington in April 2011. It's a great hotel, nice design, friendly people. although it's not cheap, I can recommend this place. In the hotel, you'll find a beauty center from Bliss, which are great products. Breakfast is very nice and healthy, with everything you can expect from this category of hotels.

I love the W Hotel chain as you can always be certain of the "stay experience" you're going get wherever you are in the US. There's the contemporary decor, lively bar & vibrant atmosphere and the W NY didn't disappoint. However, what I didn't count on was an exceptionally small room, air con with only one temperature setting "very hot"... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
