The W is a beautiful building, well-kept, and perfectly located. We stayed here because of its downtown location and proximity to Union Square Park (plenty of restaurants, playground/Barnes and Noble for young kids, drugstore and groceries one block away, and easy transportation) The staff and service is fantastic. The takeaway is that everything is top-notch. The one negative: On our 5th Floor room on the east side of the building (not the street side), we heard an intermittent noise of "a loud moaning, grinding woodwind". Old elevator gears grinding? Adjacent construction outside 24/7? Ventilation fan in need of lubrication? Thankfully intermittent, but definitely audible 5-10 times per hour. If you're the type that is a light sleeper, this can be a problem. We used a white noise generator on our phone, maximum volume, to mask the sound. Despite this glitch, our whole family absolutely loved staying here and would be glad to come back again in the future.

Perfect hotel for our girls weekend getaway

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet, great shopping in area
Spent the weekend in NYC to celebrate my friend's upcoming wedding. I booked a corner king room, which was actually much larger than I anticipated, given the comments about room size. My friend had a one bedroom suite which had a separate living room area. This was perfect for 8 of us to hang out and have a little pre-party before heading out to dinner. The staff was wonderful and really helped us make it an incredibly special weekend. I would definitely recommend this hotel. Seems they did some pretty extensive renovations since the last time I was there several years ago.

One of my favorites in NYC

Cons: No free Internet
I travel to NYC all the time and have stayed in many places. W Union Square is one of my favorites because of the helpful staff, well-appointed rooms, and excellent location. This W Hotel is usually more expensive than the W Hotel on the Upper East Side, which is also nice. Beware if you haven't been to NYC, all hotels are small and pricier than in other cities and street noise exists in virtually every building even on the highest floors.

Feels like home!

Pros: Free Internet, Quiet
They gave me an upgrade because we were 3 in the room and I asked for a king size bed with a roll away bed and the guy at the front desk told us that the double bed room was bigger and the extra bed will fit better! He was right and we have more room space! My family loves this's beautiful, quiet, nice views . we loves the W!

Great Girls Weekend!

I am an admitted hotel snob who enjoys chic, boutique properties that attracts a younger but more affluent crowd and will say that this was my first experience at a W Hotel. My stay lived up to the hype. A few months ago, I took a girls weekend to NYC as part of a business trip, and we found a great deal at the W Union Square. Our room was small - typical for a NYC hotel - but it was very clean and well-decorated, two must haves in my book. The bed was comfy; the bathroom had a standing shower, which I prefer; and there were adequate plugs and a full length mirror. Score! We had happy hour drinks and some munchies at the bar, and, while it was totally overpriced as expected from a hotel lounge, everything was tasty. (They do, however, need to invest in some shades over those massive windows. We couldn't escape the sun!) Overall, my stay was good, as expected from the W brand, and I would be happy to stay again if I were to get a great deal. We paid $** per night, which was definitely worth it, but I would not pay upwards of $*** per night.
