Organized my best friend's bachelorette to have a "stay-cation" at the W downtown and it was the best decision I ever made. From the moment we got out of the taxi we were greeted by Jose who immediately helped us put everything on to the cart and safely unloaded it into our rooms. We then made our way to have...

Great downtown location overlooking World Trade Center site including the memorials. Easy access to subways, fantastic room service and friendly staff. Slightly quieter part of Manhattan which is nice too.

What an amazing Hotel. We had the most beautiful room, it over looked the world trade center and the 9/11 memorial. It was beautiful.

This W Hotel is walking distance from ground zero and the new World Trade Center being built. From the hotel, you can see the tower soaring up high! There's a subway just right behind the building so it was so easy to go uptown as well. When you walk in their lobby, the first thing you would notice is a...

The service was excellent and each experience with the staff warmed my overall impression of the property, which was, jarring to say the least. While I appreciate the clean designs in the bedroom/bathroom, and was fine with the small but well utilized space, the main lobby, elevator platforms and bar area was over stylized in my opinion.
