Stayed for a change in Hoboken at the W. very nice hotel and compared with the costs just over the hudson this was great. Spectacular views of this city beautiful surrounding, make this a very comfortable stay.
Hotel is more on the business side but on our vacation this worked very well.
In one word
Go!

Room Tip: Only 15 mins from midtown nyc

If you are visiting NY and want a beautiful view of the city, this is the hotel to choose. It's on the Hudson river with an incredible view day or night, and there's a park along the river right outside. Perfect for us since we brought our dog and it's a pet friendly hotel and area! Also, you can park your car and ride the subway from the Lakawanna (sp?) train station (within walking distance). Went into NY everyday, took about 15 minutes. The hotel rooms are VERY modern and comfortable. Plus the surrounding area has great NJ restaurants. The hotel is also just a couple of blocks from Carlos Bakery (cake boss on TLC).

Room Tip: Get a high floor facing skyline!

My husband and I were in the area to visit the Thomas Edison National Park in West Orange NJ and had originally booked a room at another hotel. When we went to check into the other hotel, we knew it was not the place for us and decided to drive to Hoboken since it was close by and try our luck there. Luck was on our side!!! A local merchant recommended the W Hotel. We called and were able to book a room last minute with a fabulous veiw of the New York skyline- worth the extra $ to get the view! The rooms were very nicely appointed; bed very comfortable; modern decor. Everyone we encountered was extremely helpful. This hotel is a gem! Located within walking distance of so many shops and restaurants and the beautiful paths along the waterfront. Loved this place! We can't wait to come stay again!!

We stayed in the W in Hoboken for one night to experience a different part of New York & enjoy the views of the Manhattan skyline before immersing ourselves in the hustle & bustle of the city. We stayed in a Spectacular room which had a superb view of the city & it certainly made it worth paying the extra for a room with a view. Hoboken is very laid back in comparison to Manhattan & has a lovely feel to it, we enjoyed walking along the waterfront absorbing the views. The bar in the W is definately worth a visit. It is very easy to get to Manhattan on the Path train which is about a 5 minute walk from the hotel. All in all a great hotel & we very much enjoyed the chocolates & treats left on reception in the evenings :-)

The W hotel in Hoboken NJ is without a doubt one of the classiest hotels my wife and I have ever stayed in. We spent our 36th wedding anniversary there and it was fantastic. No detail was overlooked in providing us with excellent customer service from everyone we dealt with beginning from the minute we pulled up to the front entrance until we left the property. The staff were all professional and very friendly. The public areas are beautiful and our room was everything we expected with a spectacular view of Manhattan. This is a very well managed hotel and we will definitely stay there again and perhaps at another W too.

Room Tip: Go for a room on a higher floor with the spectacular view of Manhattan.

I have to agree with the reviewers thus far. Fantastic location, friendly staff, and all around a nice place to stay. Within easy commuting distance from NYC via Path train. Food is somewhat expensive; however, with so many restaurants to choose from, I have no idea why anyone would eat there. Bathroom amenities were great as well, with products from Bliss. The only "slight" downside was a rather noisy AC/heating unit in the room. I found it a bit bothersome. It didn't wake us while we slept; however, I kept wondering why the hotel would put in such a unit. Our party was in several rooms, and all the rooms contained the same unit. I did love the fact that the windows actually opened up. And, the view of NYC was phenomenal.

However, when we got home tonight, we found a curious overcharge of over 100 US on our credit card statement from the W. We tried to contact the office in charge but it is a Sunday, and they were closed. Hopefully, it will be rectified tomorrow.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room for an optimal view of the NYC skyline ...

From the moment we pulled in, to the moment we left we were made to feel like we were the only guests in the hotel. We were upgraded to the top floor of the hotel with a gorgeous view of downtown manhattan and lower hoboken, the rooms are stunningly romantic . The round couch by the window was the perfect setting for us. Zylo was so relaxing, great for even just a coffee and dessert. The whatever / whenever service is better then described. Everything and anything I asked for was immediately taken care of. All the staff were extremely accommodating. It is are new go to place for a weekend getaway. Thanks to all.

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms with a city view. They are over the top
