If you come at the W Hotel you have to make an entrance true a long,long hall. Really nice. Staff is also super friendly and the interior is hip and ultra hip! Hotel bar is good and hip as well.

This is a fantastic hotel, the rooms were beautiful and spacious, and rather cheap, guests can go up to the observatory deck, very nice bar on the 27th floor, prohibition, and very nice restaurants downstairs, the living room and keys. All and all, I had a very enjoyable stay here, however, I thought the WiFi was a tad expensive, and...

We stayed in a suite at The Foshay for our one year anniversary and thought the room and views were lovely. The concierge service was incredibly helpful, but we felt otherwise the service was lacking, which is odd for a W property. Our room was often cleaned very late in the day. We had the hotel arrange a massage for...

We arrived for an overnight stay in a Fantastic Suite at 3:45pm and unfortunately our room was ready....after a 90 minute wait, our beautiful room was ready. Matthew at the Welcome Desk was friendly and helpful, even gifting us with delicious treats and champagne that evening for our inconvenience! Unbelievable service!!
