Map & Directions

It’s about 30 to 40 minutes by taxi from JFK Airport, although the journey will take longer during rush hour. The fare is approximately $50, not including tip or tolls. Alternatively, take the AirTrain to Jamaica Station and switch to the E subway line toward Manhattan. You'll have to switch again to the 6 line at 53rd Street heading downtown to the 14th Street/Union Square station; the hotel is then two blocks away. The trip will take a little over an hour but will only run you $7.50.

Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Close to the hustle and bustle of Union Square, the W New York-Union Square is a destination in its own right. The lobby’s Living Room Lounge is usually packed with the young and fashionable crowd, and people-watching could take up an entire evening.

Rooms are modern and cheerful, albeit on the smaller side, which tends to be the norm in Manhattan hotels. Decorated in dark woods with pops of orange and aqua, every room has the signature W bed -- a plush mixture of pillow-top mattresses, high-thread-count sheets and a multitude of pillow varieties. Bathrooms come stocked with citrus-scented products from Bliss Spa.

Try to check out the four-times-weekly Greenmarket in the park outside the hotel. It’s a favorite stop among the city’s top chefs for its variety and quality of fresh produce and foodstuff.
