The W New York – Union Square: A Trendy Hotel in the Heart of the City

Luxury Hotels: Conveniently located in the heart of Silicon Alley, the W New York – Union Square is just steps away from some of the city’s most prominent landmarks. The hotel, which is housed in the 1911 beaux arts Guardian Life building, has recently been given new life with a re-invented look by acclaimed designer David Rockwell.

From the Wonderful, Spectacular and Mega Rooms to the Fantastic, Wow and Extreme Wow Suites, accommodations at the W New York – Union Square range in both size and opulence. For the ultimate in luxury accommodations, the Extreme Wow Suite features a separate bedroom, living area and workspace, a lavishly-appointed bathroom with Jacuzzi tub, and also offers a panoramic park view. With 1,000 square feet of living space, the Extreme Wow Suite is by far the hotel’s largest suite, and is unarguably one of the largest throughout the New York area.

The W New York – Union Square goes above and beyond when it comes to providing its guests with modern comforts and urban chic surroundings. Redefining what most would call a "lobby," the Living Room Lounge is a revolutionary open space where guests can enjoy cocktails in a comfortable — yet trendy — atmosphere. Highlights of the Living Room Lounge include 16-foot arched windows overlooking the park, specially-designed game tables, topiary walls filled with plants and flowers, and of course high-speed WiFi access. For a more intimate experience, head to the UNDERBAR — a seductive basement hotspot — and slip into a cozy alcove upholstered from floor to ceiling, complete with privacy curtains and a rope to pull to call for service.

On any given day, guests and locals alike can be found wining and dining at the hotel’s signature restaurant, Olives. The award-winning menu by famed Chef Todd English features an American rendition of Italian and Mediterranean cuisine. With wood ovens, open wood fires, and blanketed in warm hues and oriental carpets, the two-story, 100-seat restaurant offers a truly sophisticated ambiance.
