Guests who have stayed at a W Hotel anywhere in the world know what this chain offers: a design-conscious upscale hotel with a lively bar scene, solid on-site gym, friendly and attentive service, comfortable beds, and a fairly high price. The only difference here: These 509 rooms are in the center of the universe - busy, touristy Times Square. The rooms are stylish and large enough for a NYC hotel and feature modern amenities such as a 49-inch plasma TV, minibar and rainfall shower. In addition to the lobby bar, the hotel has two other stylish restaurants, a trendy fish restaurant and a stylish Mexican restaurant. The main complaints from guests have to do with the price and high additional fees (breakfast, Wi-Fi, parking, and more). Another stylish and high-end but cheaper option is the nearby Paramount Hotel, although room sizes are smaller, or the trendier NovoTel, located a little further north along Broadway.

The W New York Times Square is one of the best hotels in this part of the city. The 57-story skyscraper-like structure is an elegant, slightly quirky building with projecting panels that form a "W" on the facade of the lowest floors. W Hotels tend to be "trendy" in their design, and this flagship is no different. There is a large entrance hall with elevators waiting to take new guests to the seventh floor reception area. Once a room is assigned, two banks of elevators are used to transport guests to either lower or upper floors. The lobby is essentially a "living room" bar -- a large, chic open space that was renovated in 2015 and has a trendy vintage-modern look with long, charcoal gray sofas, black coffee tables with bronze legs, and pod-like, private corner seating with geometric pendant lights. Behind the bar, a cool neon mural decorates the old Times Square. The restaurants -- a seafood restaurant and a Mexican restaurant, both of which have their own bars -- are trendy and stylish, each with a different vibe.

Despite the decor in the common area, keep in mind that this W, with its "boutique" camouflage features, is a fairly large Starwood mega-chain hotel. With over 500 rooms, guests won't get the intimate, highly personalized service of smaller hotels (or (not without paying for it). Room rates tend to be quite high. Thanks to the good size of the rooms, the unbeatable location, the on-site fitness center, a lively, funky lobby scene and W's famously comfortable beds, the Final amenities: Tourists and vacationers are the main guests, but families and business travelers who can afford it also end up here.

Less than half a block from the bustling heart of Times Square.

The W New York Times Square is located right in the heart of the Theater District, less than half a block from Times Square. The hotel is surrounded by restaurants, gift shops, large stores and theaters with Broadway shows. The Discount TKTS ticket counter is practically across the street, less than a minute's walk away. Broadway is closed to traffic between 42nd and 47th streets, making the streets near the hotel some of the most pedestrian-friendly in the city. And if the neon tents and seemingly endless stream of people become too much, the less touristy neighborhood of Hell's Kitchen is just two blocks west. Central Park, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), Radio City Music Hall, Rockefeller Center and the famous Fifth Avenue shopping streets are a 15-minute walk or less from the hotel.

For sights further afield, 12 subway lines (virtually every major subway line in the city) are less than a five-minute walk from the hotel. LaGuardia Airport and JFK International Airport are approximately an hour away via public transportation. Discounted parking is available in a nearby garage, but - as it is in New York - it's still quite expensive.


Spacious (by NYC standards) and stylishly furnished with comfortable beds and modern amenities - note Wi-Fi may incur additional fees.

The spacious (for Manhattan) Spectacular Double includes stylish decor elements like a mirrored headboard, a modern lounge chair, and a neutral color palette brightened with pink accents.

By virtually every standard, this W Hotel offers truly great rooms - large for Manhattan, stylish, comfortable and well-appointed. Rooms feature neutral carpeting, light walls with bright white beds accented with light pink linens and pillows. Details such as mirrored headboards with abstract panels, modern lounge chairs, translucent magazine displays and wardrobes with pink interiors provide a trendy flair. Bathrooms feature subway tiles, sinks, and luxurious voyeur showers with rainfall showerheads. Upgraded rooms may have combination showers and bathtubs. A bonus: All rooms are on floors 10 to 57, and many have nice views.

Comfortable beds are a W brand hallmark: featherbeds with pillow-top mattresses, goose-down pillows, and 350-thread-count linens. All rooms feature 49-inch plasma TVs, as well as data ports and charging stations. Closets have safes, irons and ironing boards, and terry cloth robes. Minibars are stocked with alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. The bathrooms are equipped with high-quality Bliss toiletries and hairdryers. Guests’ biggest complaints? No coffee/tea maker, no drawers and WiFi for additional fees. Noise from Times Square can be an issue on lower floors, the hotel provides earplugs.

All rooms, regardless of category, measure 27 square meters - upgrades usually include amenities or views. The smallest suite ("Basic Fantastic") measures 60 square meters, while the largest ("Extreme WOW") measures a whopping 112 square meters and features two bedrooms, two bathrooms with a television, living room, original art sculptures and panoramic views from the top floor Broadway has.

Two stylish restaurants, a lively lobby bar, an on-site fitness center, and high-end services

Blu Fin, one of two on-site restaurants, serves great seafood and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The hotel offers more amenities than guests expect from a centrally located city hotel. Serving breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks, Blu Fin is a large but highly regarded restaurant specializing in seafood. There's even a sushi bar on the lower level. Dos Caminos is a casual Mexican restaurant with its own bar. The Living Room is the hotel's stylish and lively bar, which attracts guests and non-guests alike and features a live DJ on weekends. Guests get breakfast, which is not normally included in the room rate. Room service is available round the clock.

As with most W hotels, the on-site fitness center, known as FIT, is clean and very well-equipped with free weights, more than a dozen cardio machines, plenty of fresh towels, and a bowl of fruit for a mid-workout pick-me-up. A small business center has two desktop Mac computers. There is also a gift/souvenir shop on site.

The hotel has a 24-hour front desk and offers high-end service including the trademark "Whatever/Whenever" where guests are asked to request anything at any time, as the name suggests (for a fee, of course). The hotel offers W2GO service (with takeaway food and beverages), concierge service, luggage transport, iPod and iPad rental, luggage storage, laundry service and valet service. Parking costs a hefty additional fee (the norm in New York), and while lobby Wi-Fi is free, in-room Wi-Fi can cost an additional daily fee.

The hotel offers rental beds, but is not particularly geared towards children. Pets, however, are a different story - the hotel can arrange dog sitters, a pet bed, pet toys, trash bags, leashes...pretty much anything guests need to make their stay in the city more enjoyable. However, there is a pet weight limit as well as a non-refundable cleaning fee. In addition to the fee, there is a nightly fee for four-legged friends.
