Terrible service - would never return

San Francisco, California

Flight arrived late at night and I needed room service. The phone was not working in the room, so I called via my cell phone. Front desk said they would call back and never did. Went down to the front desk in desperation and they refused to help. No apology, just “our order guy is out so too bad for you.” This was the night managers response as well as the morning manager and the check out clerk. It felt like they were all going out of their way to be rude and offer no apology. No concierge level at this Marriott affiliate either. The room was surprisingly nice compared to the dingy hallway and lobby, and they eventually fixed the phone. Frankly, there are MANY hotels in NYC at this price point, so be sure to chose another one.

Magy is the best!

I've been staying off and on at this W Hotel for five years now. The team are very New York, meaning that they are quick and sometimes aren't as friendly as other W Hotels around the world. Except for Magy Carty who always greets me with respect and makes me feel grateful for me choosing that W Hotel in Manhattan. I wouldn't continue to bing my business to this W if it weren't for Magy. She is truly an asset. We will see you soon Magy!
