    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. The W New York – Downtown offers 24-hour room service.

    W New York - Downtown, New York
    Very pleased and satisfied
    The location was perfect, our room was much better than expected.
    Hadar, us2 night trip
    W New York - Downtown, New York
    The extra star is for the friendly staff. FIRST, there is no parking at the hotel and the website is misleading as it FAILS TO SPECIFY that you MUST park around the corner with people that simply are not friendly. Why not just let us know up front. SECOND, the room was shitty! Holes in the curtains allowed unwanted light to wake our asses up in the AM when we wished to sleep in. THIRD, and more egregious, NO DINING OPTION OR KITCHEN! Renovations happen, but let people know. I brought my wife here for our anniversary and their limited kitchen disclosure at the front desk is bagels and free coffee... For what we paid to stay here that, it is criminal that this is what we get. I am not a complainer, but I will post pics to verify the holes etc. TRAVELERS BEWARE.

    Best of the west(side) downtown
    Awesome hotel. True to the W reputation regarding comfort and amenities. Outside bar area. Great view of freedom tower from our room.

    Kitchen was down, yet we did not receive any compensation for this inconvenience. Also there were no welcome gift bags. Overall disappointing experience compared to our stays at other W hotels.

    Very Good8.0
    Convenient, comfortable in Downtown.
    Nice new hotel right across from 9/11 memorial. Convenient to all parts downtown and just 15 min cab to midtown. Smaller, but not cramped. Rooms are minimalist with all white interiors (they could do a better job cleaning scuffs, etc), but comfortable and clean. Staff was attentive and courteous. No issues with check in or out. Had double room with view of memorial on upper floor. There are residences here - which is typical in Manhattan - but they are top floors and have separate elevators. With all the choices in Manhattan - if you are looking for branded hotel and can find a decent rate here, I wouldn’t hesitate to book.
