Expert review of W Union Square

Excellent location right by a number of the city’s subways, plus good amenities.

This 270-room right off Union Square is a quintessential W property: a boutique hotel that feels trendy but can actually be considered a good business hotel. However, it is still part of a chain so my caveat is that if rooms go above 450 dollars there are other properties with more character at that price range.

Location: 

The W has a number of properties in town but this is the one with the best address as far as I am concerned; on the west side of Union Square so it's easy to explore both uptown and downtown, and the 4, 6, N, R and L subway station are just steps away.

Bedrooms: 

Rooms are large and comfortable with big beds and goose down duvets, great work stations and large bathrooms with signature Bliss products. Ask for a view of Irving Park.

Public areas: 

The Beaux Arts building, with intact original details like a sweeping staircase, keeps the design from feeling generic.

Eating and drinking: 

Since there are such amazing restaurants in New York and nearby - one of my favorites Casa Mono is a close walk away - I wouldn't suggest wasting a meal at the on site restaurant Olive's. The food is fine but it's a bit generic. The lobby bar is a popular after work spot though.                                                                                                                     

Leisure facilities: 

There's a gym.

Service: 

The kind of uniform level of service you can expect at a chain hotel.
