            The staff were always pleasant and helpful. I think they are well trained.

            The feather pillows were really smelly, had to have them replaced once but even then they were kind of funky. The carpet in the room seemed liked it was never vacuumed the whole week I was there.

            The bed was great. Slept like a baby. Room was a comfortable size. I mostly liked that I got to upgrade my room at no cost to me.

            I didn't like that the room didn't come standard with a tub. Wish they could have changed that feature

            Some noise from the WTC building site, no bathtub, room service menu very overpriced

            9.2

            W Downtown was a pleasant surprise. The hotel was as "hip" and sleek as advertised but i was pleasantly happy with how warm and welcoming it still was. Our double bed room was roomier than i expected, the beds were uber comfy. The room amenities and goodies were delightful and charming--an awesome noise machine to fall asleep to, a very cool well0used window bench that affords awesome views of the city, Bliss products! The bar is also essentially the lobby and though it sounds off-putting it really wasn't late at night there's a Dj that spins and it was fun to be able to party it up jsut a bit before hitting that hay. The area offered some cool sites even if it was way south from Manhattan. It was also right in front of the 911 Memorial, near wall street, trinity church and Battery park. Steve's pizza, Ohara's pub and Izzy & Nats were the best local eats. Kareem at Concierge hooked us up with a great tip for shopping in Brooklyn. one of the most memorable parts of the hotel? you'll think it's weird but the smell! the elevators, lobby and room are all perfumed with an amazing scent.

            The only con was the while the area offered more than we were expecting, Financial District is still no where newer and happening as the rest of Manhattan. also, you could tell that some cabbies hated going this far downtown.

            The location was perfect for our need and the bed was the most comfortable 'hotel bed' I've ever slept in! The room was nice, if small but I would not complain as the bathroom/shower was plenty big. I also liked the window seat as it eliminates the need for a 2nd chair. Clever! As Long Island residents, we don't stay in the City often but if the great rate we were able to get in the future, I wouldn't stay anywhere else. Pat D.

            Very noisy was woken up at 5 30 am with work going on at the trade center was then moved to another room which was damp and smelt toilet was also cracked. As we went to check out they tried to add another 244 dollars to our bill saying that we had only been charged for 6 nights instead of 7 even though i had an email from Booked.net and their hotel manager confirmed the prepaid credit card booking. Found the the stafff quiet rude and unhelpful.

            The hotel is in a convenient downtown location and the beds are exceptionally comfortable

            I'm not sure the DJ in front of the elevators pumping house music out until 2am is the greatest idea they've ever had - if you stay here request a high floor !

            Good location near the sub and perfect view to memorial 9/11..also the bed was amazing comfy

            You have to pay for wifi in your room...

            I like W hotels in general.

            The layout of this hotel was awkward and felt a little claustrophobic. And the lighting was too dark, even for the W concept.

            All the employees were very friendly, excellent customer service. Really enjoyed my stay.
