Right in the centre of Times Square. If you mind the crowd and occasional sirens in the middle of the night, it is a good place to stay. Great beds, reasonable room size. But the lighting in the room is a bit too dim for reading. Nice staff. Restaurant on tge ground floor, Blue Fin, serves great breakfast.

The hustle and bustle of Times Square can be a bit overwhelming at times and definitely noisy, but I am glad tht you agree our location cannot be beat. If you are looking to be in the heart of NYC, this is the right hotel! Blue Fin's breakfast is a great way to start your day and they also offer...

I live in New York City (West 80s)...but this hotel is so fabulous, I book a couple of nights a few times each year for weekend "staycations". Service is truly outstanding - from the bellmen to the front desk staff to the bartenders and servers in the Living Room bar and the BlueFin restaurant (delicious - not to be missed!)....

Hi there Hennessyparadis, W New York – Times Square Hotel sits on the pulse of New York City, steps away from great shopping, famous landmarks, and the bright lights of Broadway! Our accommodations are competitive with neighboring hotels and our talent (staff) takes your safety seriously. Though the W does have a particualar style, I can certainly appreciate that it...

Everything was amazing about our stay from the moment we walked in to the W Times Square. The rooms, bar in the hotel, service from the front desk to the management, EVEN the products in the rooms, were all spectacular.

We spent presidents day weekend at the hotel. The location of the hotel is perfect: right off of 47th st and broadway. The staff was typical new york. A bit abrupt and not very helpful. They could not be bothered with questions. The room was nice but small. For $400 a night, you would expect more. The food at Blue...

This hotel is in the middle of times square. Perfect location for a touristy visit. The rooms are very nice and clean. The staff is friendly.

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.
