About W New York - Downtown, New York

The swank W New York – Downtown places you in the heart of America's financial center. Set amid the high-rises and vibrant scene of the fast-rebuilding Financial District, the hotel adds a touch of real green to its moneyed surroundings with its landscaped plaza. The W is within a 5-minute walk of Wall Street, the New York Stock Exchange, and One World Financial Center. Take a break from work with some classic New York sightseeing: You're just a half-mile from Battery Park, where ferries depart for the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. And, with the hotel's complimentary Acura Experience, you can reach any Manhattan destination stylishly, in a luxury SUV with a personal driver.

The W wows upon arrival with stunning views on all four sides to the avant-garde LED light sculptures throughout the hotel. The Anemone Chandelier cascades tendrils of light down through the lobby, and the Lamella art installation sets a surreal and slightly retro atmosphere in the Living Room Bar & Terrace. Here you can sip in style indoors or out.

The W’s 24-hour fitness center, FIT, offers the chance to burn off stress (and pub food) with cardio machines, free weights, and boxing stations. Squeeze in an hour of work at the hotel’s 24-hour WIRED® business center, equipped with Apple® workstations and an array of office devices and services. WiFi is available in public areas.

If relaxation is more your tune, unwind in your room, where Egyptian cotton sheets and goose-down duvets await. Refresh in the walk-in shower with rainfall showerhead and Bliss spa toiletries, then wrap yourself in the signature W waffle bathrobe and enjoy the city views. You can listen to music from the CD library, use your iPod® with the provided docking station, or watch a movie from the DVD library on the 37-inch flat screen TV. And top off your day with an in-room massage or an indulgent snack.

Inflated regular price misleading...
I was looking forward to arriving at my hotel and having an awesome room and dinner at the hotel. The room was advertise as something like $1300 normal and $300 for my price, so I thought it would be spectacular. When I arrived, the sense of entry was underwhelming. They did not have my reservation. The room was very small and a fair amount of ware and tare. What was most disappointing was the fact that their restaurants were closed for renovation which is one of the primary reason's I pick the hotel. If the advertised regular price would not have been advertised as $1300, then I would have been happy to pay the $300 per night. It was not a bad experience, just disappointing.

Could be Great...
Stay was great. Hotel still has no restaurant(over a year now) inconvenient but not a huge issue as there are good places near by. Hot water takes like 5 minutes to heat up, more of an issue and I hate that you have to transfer elevators to get to your room. Bar is decent.
