Lovely hotel! Friendly staff! Easy access to subway and local restaurants! Comfortable bed and room! Highly recommend. They have an outdoor bar that is lovely to sit and have a cocktail! They have drink specials in the afternoon. Only think is odd getting in as the lobby is on 5th floor - it's no big deal just the main entrance... More

This hotel was very clean with a friendly staff. Convenient location close to many subway lines. Best part of the hotel was the unobstructed view of the World Trade Center and memorial from our room. The frosted glass wall in the shower was a little strange. It looks out into the sleeping area so if you are in the shower... More

The room is nicely furnished, modern, clean, and functional. Efficient use of space as is with most NYC hotels. We found a great deal so we can not be too picky. Multiple extras, infused spa water, gourmet coffee are nice touches. The lobby has a night club vibe, is probably a night club with bar at night except we were... More

We travel to New York City about three times a year and this time decided to stay at the W on Albany Street.

Located directly across from the WTC memorial, the w hotel provides an accessible location to investigate downtown manhattan. I stayed here while attending a work event. Only a 10 minute walk from Wall Street. Lots nearby to investigate and subway entrance just a block or so away. The facilities were modern reflecting the w brand. The room aesthetic didn't do...

I have stayed at this hotel many times and it never disappoints. This visit I had a corner room with an amazing view of the World Trade Center. Room and service was nice as always and the bar/lobby area is funky with a cool outdoor porch.

Stayed here on business recently. Great location within easy walking distance of main downtown areas. Staff were friendly and pretty attentive - had a minor letdown with one staff member but the rest made up for it. The rooms are of average (for NYC) size but pretty well laid out. Overall I enjoyed the stay and would happily return

Exceeded our expectations. Well appointed room, with great design and the most incredible views over the 911 memorial and Liberty Tower. Ideal location for visiting Manhattan, walking distance to many attractions and a short tube ride to the rest.

Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
