Overview

Funky hotel that offers Whatever/Whenever service
Set in the heart of Times Square, so can get noisy

This bustling property appeals to those looking for a trendy, hip stay. Surrounded by the dazzling lights of Times Square and the memorable sounds of Broadway, this member of the W Hotels family earns a thumbs-up for location (though some guests warn that street noise can infiltrate rooms on some of the lower floors). Travelers describe the property as trendy and chic, praising the W's funky lighting and colorful accents found throughout the guest rooms, the lobby and the gourmet Blue Fin restaurant. And although the W Hotel - Times Square is designed with a cool clientele in mind, previous guests say that the atmosphere here is anything but snobby. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Rewards members can earn and use points here.

No matter the time of day, it seems, there's a gentle groove playing in the funky lobby of the W New York Times Square, and a crowd hanging out sipping cocktails. That atmosphere, plus the central Manhattan location, extremely comfortable beds, and a well-equipped fitness center, make this a solid choice for anyone looking to be situated in Manhattan's bustling Theater District.

The W's "Whatever/Whenever" policy provides extra fun: Want a peanut butter and fluff sandwich at 2 a.m., a laser printer stat or a bed covered with 2,000 daisies? The staff insists they'll do it. Of course, it’s all for a price; the 57-floor W is neither cheap nor personal, but there's a reason stars like Ashanti stay there for weeks at a time.
