When you first enter the W lobby, you're not sure you're in the right place...cement floors with exposed grey columns, a few people sitting on modular chairs, a young woman sitting in front of a laptop at a large shared table smiling at you (who turned out to be the concierge) and a few steps further in, three pedestals for...

Pro's: location ,location, location, views, rooftop patio area, pool area, rooms itself, service. Cons: the food was just OK at our catered events, nothing to write home about, some areas were so dark i could barely see. People...

This hotel definitely has a younger, party feel. Music was usually playing in the commons areas when we were there. It wasn't 'blasting,' but definitely louder than background music. I like the atmosphere, however, it's not a quite refined feel, but anyone who knows the W hotels probably knows what to expect. The common areas are modern, well furnished, and...

We are SPG members and as a reward for our 50th stay at one of their hotels we got a free upgrade. We had a lovely corner balcony suite. This gym is state of the art. The lobby has several nooks and crannies to cozy up in. One room features a very large sports screen. Another plush couches and chairs...

I'm normally not a "W Guy" but my wife sold me on staying here for a few days before our wedding in April. I'm glad she did. The concierge Jesse (sp?) was incredibly helpful on several occasions. She helped me order flowers for the room and find a last-minute cleaners to steam the wedding dress and my suit. The front...

We held my daughter's wedding at the W and they did a fantastic job. They were helpful, accommodating and kind. We had events there Friday, Saturday and Sunday and used many different venues in the hotel. The weekend was wonderful and the food was excellent!

We absolutely loved how pet friendly it was here. Doggie packs at the door with a toy/treats/chews. And although there were some service hiccups, the manager, Fabian, took care of everything with absolute grace! Highly recommend! If you drive a Tesla, be sure to request charging from valet when they park.

We live just outside of the city but far enough away to justify an overnight getaway every now and then. The W is my favorite. It's chic and elegant. Rooms are plush, stylish, and comfy. Service is impeccable. We didn't visit the pool the last time but it was lovely the first time. The bar is pricy but worth it.

Very good location, rooms are well arranged and the lounge has some of the best people watching in town. There are several rooms inside the same lounge, one has a tv for sports, one has a DJ etc, the best part of the place. The pool is small but it gets decent amount of sun and service was pretty good.
