We stayed here for three nights and we were impressed. The location is downtown, by the World Trade Centre site, so it's great for downtown (and fine for all of Manhatten really, because it's very close to the Subway stations for mid and uptown) and the hotel seems very modern. As is quite often the case in New York, the...

The location was great for us attending a wedding reception. We were there only one night, but the staff was friendly and helpful. This was our first time in NY. and we needed some help getting around. We were directed to some great places to eat and drink thanks to the Front desk staff.

W New York Downtown is a great place to stay if you want a top notch experience. Amazing view of the Freedom Tower and 9/11 memorial gardens from your own suite. The place is within walking distrance to China town, financial districts and the water. The friendliness of the staff is an added bonus.
