This hotel is situated in a good midtown location is great access for tourists as you have pretty easy access to all the major items you'll see as a first time tourist two New York.

Yes, the basic rooms are tiny. Yes, the decor is minimalistic. Yes, it's pricey. This is New York! Why would you stay in your room?

Great hotel for the fun lovers who love to party in NYC, midtown Location is fantastic with proximity to everything.

My husband and I stayed at the W Hotel for 5 days on a business & pleasure trip. I have mixed reviews. While location is excellent, accomodations are highly overpriced. For starters there should be a difference between minimalistic decor and cheap materials. Rooms are very small and uncomfortable, bathrooms are too tight and don´t even have a door but...

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.
