We stayed 1 night at the W Downtown and everything met or exceeded expectations. The hotel and room itself were beautiful and the view of the 911 memorial from our room was an unexpected treat. The staff who met us on arrival were the perfect combination of friendly and professional. They helped us with a few extra questions and needs...

I'd booked the room about a week before I checked in. Although I live quite close to the hotel, I knew I was going to have a crazy week at work, and figured I'd treat myself to a nice room, and good room service to kick off a relaxing weekend. When I made the reservation on the SPG site, I...

Stayed here for a week in November. My room faced the Freedom tower which provides for amazing views at all times of the day. If you're working in the financial district, the location is great. If you're here for leisure, the area is not the most vibrant at night and few fun restaurants and bars in the neighbourhood. Subway is...

Have stayed at this property multiple times and always had top-notch experiences! Its location within the city is extremely convenient and we had a very easy time getting from the hotel to all other areas that we wanted to visit. The staff is great and very knowledgeable about the area. The property itself is very trendy and upscale.

The W Hotel is the place to stay when in downtown Manhattan. The location can not be any better. Walking distance to shops, restaurants and the Freedom Towers.

Great location, walking distance to trade center and near subway lines. The room was okay. I expected more from the W. Overall the room looked warn, dinged up, small. Bed was comfy.

Great hotel in a surprising great spot, next to the Freedom Tower. In fact, my room had a direct view of the Tower and the park below. I was on the 9th floor. Lots of convenience stores near by, a few restaurants, an old style boxing gym with a Ring. Steps away from two subway lines. Ten minute walk to...

If you're near the 9-11 museum or anywhere in lower Manhattan, it's worth a trip to the 5th floor bar at the W Hotel. Amazing view of the city especially at night and the lighting inside the bar itself is mesmerizing. The atmosphere probably ranks a little above the drink selection but those weren't bad either- just fairly typical cocktail...

I have stayed at this hotel twice, and both experiences have been great. Pros: Friendly staff, quick check in, great location (right across the street from the 9/11 memorial, within walking distance to financial district, brooklyn bridge), great "living room" aka lobby/lounge area, great outdoor space with a bar and views of One World building. There was also a giant,...

Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
