The W hotel downtown is what you would expect from the W chain. When you arrive, the lobby is on the 5th floor and it's dim lighting and chic design makes you feel like you are in a swanky lounge. The service at the front desk was great and fast. It took a couple of minutes to check in and then I was on my way up the elevator to my room. The rooms are a decent size for a NY hotel. They aren't well appointed but more simple and sleek in design. My room had a large bathroom and the shower was really nice, with beautiful tiles and a rain shower head. I had a great view of the WTC memorial and the new tower. The bed was very comfortable with the typical heavenly dressings. Overall I liked this property. The 5th floor lobby also has a bar and a good sized seating area to relax. It is a bit dark and cavelike though.
There is also a restaurant on the first level that I didn't try but it looked packed with people.
