Very rude hotel overall manager.

Posted Jun 10, 2016
Pros: The location for great for us.
Cons: Easy and helpful managers.
Location: It was in Union Square. So convenient for everything we wanted to do.
I don't think I have ever given a poor outcome on a survey for a hotel. I know things go wrong occasionally and give everyone benefite of the doubt. But this was hard to overlook. I arrived without my purse. I know that is completely my fault, I own this part of the story. Left it at the airport bathroom. Luckily it was found and was to be returned to the hotel in the morning. I arrived at 10:30pm and tried to check in. I didn't have any id. I do however have a ton of items with my name on it, i.e. the itinerary for the hotel booking, plus my iPad which had a locked keypad which can only be unlocked with a four digit code. The attendant behind the desk can't help me because it is protocol to ask for the manager on call to allow me to check in. A young man comes out and said he can't help me because I paid with Expedia. I said "Really. Wow. I can't check in? He said "well, do you have a business card with your name," I do not, "Do you have a boarding pass," I do not. I said I did have my iPad which is locked I know the code to get into the iPad, he said, "that doesn't count, his girlfriend has his code. That doesn't prove anything." (Hum, I guessed I have knocked off my boyfriend or husband, stole his iPad and am going use his room at the W hotel.) Anyway, he makes me call Expedia, who was very wonderful and changed the name on the hotel room to my friend who is with me so we can use her credit card for incidentals. Basically an unhelpful manager.

A good alternative to the mid-town mayhem.

Posted May 26, 2016 on Hotels
This is a great location if you want to be in the middle of everything, and have easy access to mid-town, but don't want to stay in the middle of the Times Square crowd. The hotel is very clean, and the service is excellent. It's an easy walk to the many exceptional restaurants located south of 23rd street, and public transportation to every part of the city is no more than a one-block walk from the hotel.

立地は良い

Posted May 14, 2016
ユニオンスクエアの隣。立地は良い。他は値段相応だと思います。不満もありませんが、想像以上の体験もない、「普通」と言ったところ。

A blend of business and pleasure

Posted May 1, 2016 on Hotels
Been coming to NYC for many years and have stayed in various areas at many hotels. Area great for visits with my NYU student nUnion square is a happening place and the location of the W can't be beat. Many really cool places to eat in surrounding areas and lots of shopping. Very young, hip vibe in Union Square and Saturday farmers market is really cool!

Late check-in, not worth $500+

Posted Apr 22, 2016 on Hotels
Three of my friends and I stayed here for a group birthday celebration for one night. We arrived after the 3:00 check-in to be told our room wasn't ready, which is always annoying when you just want to drop off your bags and freshen up. They weren't too apologetic but did offer us 2-complimentary drinks at the bar. We went to get our nails done and came back about an hour or so later. Our room was still not ready so they gave us a different room. The room was a decent size for a NYC hotel and was clean but there wasn't anything spectacular about it. When we got home from our evening out, our room had an overwhelming smell of cigarettes which lingered until the morning. We are from Long Island so we know how expensive things are. But spending $500 on a room in which we were in for 18-hours, definitely wasn't worth it.

Front desk staff was the worst.

Posted Apr 17, 2016
I looked forward to my stay but when I arrived the lady at the front desk insisted on upgrading my reservation to room with two double beds. i explained that my reservation was for a king bed, and that any double bed was not an "upgrade" in view of my height. It turns out that the hotel had no king beds available at all. Rather than explain that to me she rushed off to the back and brought the night manger who apologized and explained the situation better.
