EXPENSIVE. very, very expensive. Lobby was beautiful, we heard a lot of great things about the restaurant but we did not eat there. As we were checking in, they messed up our room. We asked for 2 double beds and they gave us 1 king. They offered to move us to the W in Times Square, but it was 9PM... More

My DIL and I spent 5 days at W New York - Union Square. What a wonderful trip. The W was everything that I have come to expect when I stay at a Starwood hotel. When we checked in, they moved us up to a higher floor than we had been assigned to and the view was incredible. We ordered... More

I loved the place and the drinks. A little to the expensive side but what's not expensive in New York. Service could be a little faster but then again i was getting a little slower too. I would recommend eating before coming as the portions are pretty small. The drinks are definitely made well.

We stayed here to attend a wedding and were pleasantly surprised by the size of the room. It was one of the largest we had ever seen in NYC. The price of the room and parking were high, but the location right near NYU and union square is worth it.

I've stayed in several W hotels earlier - boston, Washington Dc etc, but this one doesn't quite live upto the standards set by the rest. The rooms are tiny and service is unremarkable. The lobby is complicated and unimpressive. There is nothing terribly wrong, but nothing too great too.
