W New York Union Square - Hotel Reviews from across the web

No title - expert review
It seems Manhattan cannot get enough of W Hotels. The group has now taken its 'sleek boutique' concept downtown to Union Square. Housed in a 20-storey former insurance building, the new property is close to SoHo, Greenwich Village, Chinatown and Tribeca, and boasts rooms noticeably larger than its M...

The opening of W Times Square in December 2001 brought the number of Ws in NYC to five. As with its siblings, style matters at this former insurance building, grass grows on the check-in desk and there's enough bamboo to feed a panda convention. But the Union Square property is the mature brother in...

Starwood's W Hotel brand has owned Union Square since it bought the landmark Guardian Life building at the park's northeast corner. Both the interior and exterior of the 1911 Beaux-Arts-style building retain many original granite and limestone details. Modernism permeates each room, from shiny shark...

Überarchitect David Rockwell transformed the magnificent 1911 Guardian Life building overlooking leafy Union Square into a new gem, successfully fusing original Beaux Arts detailing with bold, clean-lined modernism and a relaxing, grown-up air. Rooms boast distinctive touches such as luminous m...

The W chain has done it again, bringing that nouveau-Hollywood style to New York in its fourth city property. This 270-room place is in a prime hot spot, where the city's international businesses and cutting-edge technology thrive. W's signature living room (a.k.a. the lobby) features 16-foot arched...

Opulent. Bohemian. And everywhere in between.

Great Service - user review
I can't remember meeting friendlier and more helpful staff anywhere. Everyone from the doorman, front desk and even a hotel mechanic that we ran into on the elevator was very nice and helpful. The room was very contemporary and surprisingly large ( by Manhattan standards). Great hotel bar. Just wish...

Wherever whenever? - user review
I moved from the W time square to the W union square during my business trip to be closer to downtown. Having been serviced by the excellent staff in Tm sq, I was really surprised to be greeted with snooty attitudes and unfriendly faces at this W. Their lack of interest in satisfying their clients i...

W is for WOW - user review
I recently stayed the W in Union Square and was blown away by the service. From the front door to the guy who checked me in to the lady who cleaned my room, everyone was professional & friendly, but not stiff.

I travel extensively, but have never experienced the level of attention to guest satisfaction that I experienced at the W Union Square. My stay was absolutely perfect.

If you love Union Square - user review
If you spend most of your time 'downtown' while in New York, you could not find a better location than the W Union Square. Excellant subway access, and several great restaurants within a few blocks. The greenmarket is wonderful, especially on Saturday. One word of caution....the closet is tiny! 3 dr...

W not so hot after all - user review
In a recent 4 night visit in NY, I was excited to be finally staying in the uber chic W Hotel in Union Square. While the hotel lives up to it's "cool" reputation (staff all dressed in black, and wearing headsets), and the bed was very comfortable, I wasn't happy at all there. Why.. First o...

great look, poor service.... - user review
I've stayed at the W Union Square twice because of the location. On one occasion the manager simply disallowed my reservation because the previous client wouldn't move out of the room And the hotel was otherwise sold out. Since when does someone else's bad behavior force a guest to move to another h...

Location excellent, rooms comfy, bed divine, water pressure awesome. No DVD players. When asked for, they promise us one. Turns out much later all are lent out.

Comfortable - user review
My room during a recent stay here was incredibly comfortable but the room temperature was super cold inspite of my attempts to change the thermostat. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They even told me where to go jogging so that I could see the Statue of Liberty and told me about a great pla...

Reaks of trendy flimsiness, from the "cast" decked out in black, to the "cool" music playing in your room when you arrive.My wife and I spent five nights there in the second largest room size, and they gave as a view of nothing at all.Great place to be, though, if you are a twent...

We absolutely loved our stay here. 'W' skips the huge grand lobby and the attitude of other boutique style hotels and opts for a simply elegant foyer with beautiful finishes tile, brushed metals, etc. and professional staff.

What a great experience staying at the W Union Square. All the staff/employees were friendly and helpful. the location couldn't be beat.

Great Location, nothing else. - user review
About the only good thing about this hotel is its perfect location. Rooms: dirty with greast windows, cheap bathrooms and lousy cleaning service.
