The W is nice at first glance, but once you are there it's apparent the hotel took some shortcuts to save money. The furniture is cheap in the rooms, the hotel restaurant had a small menu of average tasting food, and the hotel "club," was basically a bar/lounge. I would say the main attraction is the pool. Just a rectangular pool with music and waitstaff. Not a place for kids to hang out, really the entire hotel is more for a young crowd, not a family. We took our kids and rented a cabana at the pool, and had a good time. The hotel is very close to 5th & 6th streets, so a plus if you plan on walking the area.
