We stayed at the W because my niece is an SPG; her sister and mom joined us, so we were 4 in a mega room. I have to preface this by saying we'd just spent several nights at a Starwood in Brooklyn, and this was SO not that. The room cost at least double what I would have spent had I been in Manhattan by myself. Pros: great location, exactly where we wanted to be, close to subway and shopping and sights. Room was clean and well-furnished. Nice Bliss bath products. Cons: no coffee maker - I find out now that we could have asked for one and it would have been complimentary; the reason I didn't ask is I assumed there would be a fee, as there was for everything else. (We joked that maybe we'd have to pay for using the shampoo.) Cup of coffee in the lobby in the morning was $4 - ouch. No free water for SPG. There was complimentary infused water in the lobby, but it was always empty when we walked past it. a The bathroom, while pretty, was not very functional for 4 women - no shower curtain so no privacy or possibility of sharing the bath for any reason. A pedestal sink (= no counter top for all our "stuff"). The bath had a weird, thin glass door, and no fan. HVAC was loud at night, noticeably so; and this was in April, so no telling what it would be like when it's really warm/cold out. The real deal-breaker was the wifi limit of 3 devices. We did not even have the option of paying for a 4th device - the wifi message simply said if we connected an additional device, the first one on would be dropped. All 4 of us were researching Things To Do on our laptops - well, only 3 of us. I had never stayed in a W before, and always considered it to be a premier hotel brand. I have reconsidered that opinion. We had a nice stay, but I've had way better rooms for less money at other hotels in NYC.
