A fantastic stay

Having stayed at W hotels around the US at around Manhattan, I can attest that this one provides an excellent balance of W style and amenities with affordable pricing and a great location. It's not as flashy or expensive as the Time Square W, yet is located close to everything you may need and offer a fantastic value for guests.

The W on Lex is great

The location couldn't be more convenient - close to the park, close to subway stops, walking distance from a lot. The hotel itself is very nice and very clean. The room we had was larger than many I have experienced in New York (though not huge - by any means). There is decent food and drinks on location. Overall, really good, and I would go back.

Can do much better

The W is in a great location, has a good gym and public spaces. The bathrooms are tiny; the service on the room was not good. And the room itself was small even by NY standards and laid out in an awkward way. Everything is extra, $3-4 for a cup of coffee in the lobby in the morning. The staff was friendly although only the people outside were friendly. There seem to be a fair number of people walking around without any specific function.

Great location, but a tad overpriced

The location was fantastic as far as being near everything we intended to be visiting. I understand that hotel rooms in NYC are super small and pricey. I actually thought our room felt larger than I had anticipated, so that was nice. The lobby and bar/lounge area were impressive and swanky. I enjoyed that part a lot. The Bliss products were also great. My only complaints were that there wasn't another blanket option (the comforter was too warm and there was no coverlet or lighter blanket in a closet) and the walls and trim were dirty. For over $350/night, I expect that someone could have easily taken a rag to the noticeably dirty areas.

Fun ambiance, good location

I stayed at the W while attending a conference this weekend. Overall it was a great place to stay, convenient to everything. The atmosphere downstairs is fun and it was very lively all weekend. My only complaint is that there was no coffee maker in the room and that a simple cup of coffee was very expensive in the lobby. I also got a great deal by booking in advance .
