As a New Yorker, I never imagine that I would stay at hotels in New York City. However, I decided to do something for a change. I chose W New York Downtown because it has a nice view of the One World Tower. We got the room with the amazing view overlooking the New Tower and the New Lower Manhattan....

I hardly ever rate low. We had three rooms altogether spread amongst the hotel. Before dinner one night, we gathered in one room so we can leave together. Each room has a radio. We had it on low volume, and got three complaints, almost to the point of asking us to leave. It was seven in the evening - on...

Stayed here for the final leg of a trip to the states. The hotel is in an excellent location, opposite the new World Trade Centre, in the heart of the financial district.

I had an issue with my reservation - the W Downtown was inflexible, demeaning, uncooperative and lacked professionalism. I would never recommend staying at this hotel because if you have an issue, the current team at the hotel will not assist you in resolving it.

This hotel is an experience! I know the W brand is sophisticated and irreverent at the same time, but are all W's like this? The lobby is on the 5th floor and resembles a night club. Check-in was a breeze and was strictly transactional - no emotion from the front desk attendant. "Welcome. You're on the 10th floor. Here are...
