W Times Square Vs. Hilton Times Square

We are currently planning our first trip to New York and are deciding between these two hotels. I understand that they are both in Times Square but what was wondering if anyone could tell me if they preferred one over the other. We are looking for a clean hotel with helpful staff.

Thanks in advance

Clean hotel - I believe any hotel worth its salt is kept clean - friends have stayed at the W - personally not a fan of Times Square hotels, but they keep going back!

I have not stayed at the W, but have at the Hilton. The location of the Hilton is really, really, bad...right on frantic 42nd St.. I prefer the Hilton Garden Inn or The Muse...both in Times Square but in less hectic locations.

How many of you will be in the room? I ask because the Hilton has 2 bedded rooms with 2 queen beds while the W only has 2 doubles and their rooms are quite small. Why only these 2?

I have stayed at them both. Even though the W is in a very busy location, I much prefer it to the Hilton TS location. I avoid 42nd street as much as possible when I'm going to the theatre. Both hotels were clean, W is more modern but smaller rooms. I preferred the W TS. The only thing that I didn't like about the W is that (as of 2 years ago) the bathroom had a "peekaboo window" so if you don't want to put on a show for who you are sharing a room with, you needed to request a privacy curtain. I did hear that they were considering elimating this see through window but not sure if they did.
