Everything was great, with the exception of some extra pillows and mattress that made it difficult to sleep.

Cons: Bring back coffee in the room -- if it is a matter of cost, then charge for it along with the $7 potato chips. One of the lamps in the room was broken
At one point, I was using internet in the lobby (at 2am) and was told by two different people that I would have to leave so staff could clean -- because they don't want to clean around guests. I've never been to a hotel that closes the lobby, regardless of time of day or night.

Good location but way too noisy

The hotel has a club open on the lobby level and the music was pounding until well past midnight. My room was 4 floors above it and I couldn't sleep. The room was expensive even for NY standards but I felt like I was staying in a motel for spring break. Extremely dissapointing. I would never stay there again. Staff was unapologetic as well.

Nice hotel very close to the World Trade Center

Pros: Its location
Cons: nothing
Location: The World Trade Center, you arrive before the crowds
Centrally located , great staff, and very clean. Room was a little small, but, most rooms in NYC are. Great deal on Travelocity.

Nice but needs some repairs

Cons: The bathroom repairs and mild mold in the shower
Location: Freedom Tower and Starbucks
The room had a very nice view and the decor was very updated and modern, really liked that. The bathroom toilet paper holder had no stopper and kept coming off the rack onto the floor. The towel rack was broken but it still worked, the other towel for the hand towels was loose also. Other than that a pleasant experience.

comedy of errors

Pros: The hotel is designed beautifully, its a cool space-age design, its comfortable, and great views of the WTC.
Cons: the staff needs to talk to one onanother! the lefthand doesn't know what the right is doing
Location: World Trade Center
No hot water, (or even warm) on the day I arrived. They forgot to deliver my roomservice breakfast order. They didn't follow though on promised goods to make up for their shortcomings. They put not one but two wrong number calls through to my room at 3:30am. And after they gave me a late checkout to make up for the lost sleep from the calls, they called up to the room to find out when I planned on checking out, rushing me to be out 2 hours earlier than the late checkout. Management did seem nice and seemed to want to make things right, however, it seems no one talks with eachother so no one know what needs to be done or If anyone followed through. Two managers spoke with me while I was still checked in. Both were embarrassed by what had happened but neither followed up as they said they would. I received a concerned email from the Director of rooms, Temara but its been 72 hours since I responded and the W hotel has failed to respond again.
