I had a very positive experience staying here. The rooms were renovated well, and matched my expectations from a 4-star hotel. Their breakfast options could be improved but there are so many food options nearby. We really liked their black decor for the entrance and it was calming yet fancy. And for a Bonvoy elite member, there were many perks that this hotel honored, even though they didn't have a lounge. And the location is very central to bus stops and subway stations and easy to get around with public transport. We realized their room fridge is not for guest use, but it's a storage for the drinks they have in room for purchase. Not a deal breaker for our short stay.

Great stay, but a two important factors keep it from being excellent. The pros: Location - easily walkable to anything Atmosphere - rooms, lobby and restaurant have a great ambience that W is known for Service - front desk was friendly. Room service folded clothes for you The cons: Toilet paper - might be the worst toilet paper I've used at any hotel The gym - small and not a great variety of equipment. Given the demographic the W targets, you would think they'd invest in their gym, unfortunately it leaves you wanting more space and equipment. Good stay, but I may prefer staying at other Marriott brand hotels before staying here again.
