While the location of the W is superb the service isn't. Firstly we had to take our own cases to room...no one attempted to help. We were told internet access was free and on check out they tried to charge us $100 + ....The one and only bar and sitting area has reserved notices on most of tables. The waitresses...

As a regular visitor and former resident of Manhattan, I usually try to avoid the tourist insanity of Times Square at all cost. For various reasons, work decided to put me up at the W Times Square rather than the one down in Union Square. Despite being right on the northwest edge of the mess, the hotel itself is fairly...

The rooms at the W are small, as is typical of the W chain. But my room was nice, and I had a terrific river view. The bar is very good, and the location-in the heart of Times Square-is excellent. One negative note: Wi FI coverage was spotty, which is not ideal for business.

Lounge review only - Beautiful lounge, great service, fab atmosphere. I'd been to the main bar Blue Fin many times, and that's still really crowded, just not very fun - it feels more like a lot of craning necks trying to figure out if they're in the right spot. BUT - the lounge on 7 is wonderful with a great...

The location of the hotel is great. Right in the center of Times Square. We were in NYC to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary. Most hotels will do something special for couples on their anniversary (upgrade their room, perhaps some fresh fruit?) We did not even receive a happy anniversary. Oh well. We checked into our room and it...

The location was great! The staff was very helpful, but the room was in need of some attention. The lounge chair had multiple spots where the pleather was peeled off. The bathroom tiles had rust stains in places and chips in others. For $500/night, I was hoping that the room would be a little better cared for.

I typically hate hotels in Times Square... too crowded, too noisy, too touristy. I took this reservation because, last minute, I couldn't get one in the hotels I wanted..... Wow! What a pleasant surprise. The room was huge by NY standards. Quiet, clean and the hotel personnel could not have been more accommodating. I would absolutely stay here again.

Excellent service, extreemly comfortable beds, great location. The one complaint is about the bar on the 7th floor. It was a little weird that we were all sitting on coaches enjoying music and some drinks and then being told we could no longer sit there after an hour because they were " reserved" by someone else. This happened about midnight....

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
