The only negative about this property is that the rooms are “city sized”, pretty small. Not a lot of room to move around. However, everything else about this place is fantastic! It is in a good location. It also has a bar and restaurant on site. The room has plenty of amenities, including a sound machine, large tv, stocked fridge, snacks and all kinds of audio/video/HDMI connections to the tv. This room has everything you need and more. Also, I had the Carne Asada plate at the restaurant and it was mouthwatering delicious! If you’re considering this property, I give it two thumbs up!

The W opens to a bar in the lobby which is what this hotel is all about...fun. It's an older building and was remodeled about as good as you can...I was in an upgraded room however they are still small with no closet or storage space. I took advantage of the concierge service and Eden was able to coordinate everything from transportation, to reservations to flowers in our room upon arrival.
