W Hotel - Union Square
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
If you want to be as centralized as possible during your time in New York without the fervent hustle and bustle of Times Square, Union Square is a great area to camp out in. And the W provides a calm oasis in the madness.
Steps away from the nearest subway, the hotel features a restaurant, gym and pet-friendly amenities. Both the lobby and the rooms give off a lounge-y vibe, with leather banquettes, jewel-tones throw pillows and walls with primary stripes of blue and orange. You can begin a nice evening at first-floor eatery Irvington, serving perfectly moist duck, a $19 burger that’s hefty indeed and ceviche and oysters for lighter fare. The daily happy hour from 5–7pm offers draught beers for $6, glasses of wine for $9 and cocktails for $12—not a bad deal in these parts.
Upstairs in your room, you can have a lovely view of the park below and the city stretching out around you in the distance—you only need go up a few floors to see above the treetops, and it’s a lovely sight indeed, especially at sunrise. When you’re ready to venture into the night, both the East Village and the West Village—perfect for whatever adventure you’re looking for—are just a 15- to 30-minute walk away. For New Yorkers, that’s no time at all.
