After reading some recent reviews on trip advisor, I was a little anxious about our stay here. The staff is been extraordinary. Very accommodating and the hotel is lovely. A special shout out to Sebastian for the free ginger rail! Wink wink

My wife and I spent a Saturday night at the W to celebrate her birthday. As a lifelong New Yorker I can be pretty judgmental about hotels and restaurants since we frequent the city all the time. But the W Union Square didn't fall short on any level. Service was great, we got a room upgrade as a SPG Gold... More

When I go to NYC, I prefer to stay at the W in Union Square. The rooms there are bigger than a lo of the W's and the staff is terrific, always making suggestions and willing to help. I also love the location.

My husband and I arrived at the hotel around 8 a.m. after taking a red eye flight. Although our room wasn't ready at that early hour, the staff at the desk suggested returning around 11-12, and we were able to stow our luggage with them while we headed out to forage for brunch. Our room was ready at 11:30, the... More

I stayed in this hotel just once. It is an older property refurbished. Enjoyed the location and local ambience. Service was good, our room fine. If you like Union Square this is a good choice. I was upgraded at this hotel.

Called into this bar - the Irvington - in the lobby of this building. It was just for a pre dinner beer. Lovely atmosphere - very good beer.
