W New York
Lonely Planet review
New York's original W, this 18-floor, 617-room hotel flares its soothing modern chic (not to mention the Whiskey Blue bar, run by Rande Gerber, aka Mr Cindy Crawford) amid a handful of old-school stalwarts in this west-of-Park Midtown location.
Sure, the rooms are small (it's still New York), but all feature the usual comfort that makes W New York the cool crowd's big boutique of choice. The 'wonderful' standard rooms fit in a lot - earthy greys (textured carpets and walls) are punctuated with abstract 'negative' photos of flowers and a wall-mounted mirror framed in untreated wood. A small armchair faces the double-pane window. Teensy bathrooms have faux snakeskin walls and tiled showers. The downstairs Heartbeat restaurant is an all-organic eatery (lined with colored-glass mosaic pillars). Bliss, who supply the bathroom amenities and run a shop downstairs, run a fitness center for guests, complete with a salon and sauna. W's Times Sq and Union Sq locations are more sceney, if you're into the velvet-rope crowd.
