Overview

Manhattan-style hot spot across the Hudson River with free bikes and a Bliss Spa

The Lowdown

The W became the first major luxury hotel chain to land in Hoboken, bringing 225 rooms and 40 residences to the urban outpost just over the river from Manhattan. The high-rise infuses the neighborhood with an urbane vibe in its Zylo Tuscan steakhouse, Chandelier Room tapas bar and Living Room lobby lounge. Expect signature W beds, Bliss bath amenities, likely a few extra square feet than a comparable spot in NYC, and, if you’re lucky, some pretty killer skyline views. Perks also include New Jersey’s only Bliss Spa, which covers two stories for their signature facial and body treatments (and brownie bar), while Sweat Fitness has become a popular destination for spinning classes.

In the Area

The W was smart to touch down in Hoboken — 15 miles from Newark International Airport, minutes from Manhattan and the first world-class option for travelers to the immediate area. Convenience continues to be key during the stay, with free bikes at the concierge, and Acuras to take you wherever you need to go in Hoboken, gratis with a reservation. Nearby you can grab beers at the Pilsner Haus beer garden or sip craft cocktails at the throwback Kolo Klub. And the Big Apple’s attractions are just a 10-minute train ride away.

Really Great Hotel Experience
Reviewed 3 days ago

We stayed here last night and everything was perfect. From the start, Juan at the front desk was fabulous... very helpful, extremely nice and a super representative for the W. We were really impressed with him and he started off our wedding anniversary making us smile. Thanks Juan from room 413! The hotel is very pretty and super clean. The room was absolutely impeccably clean. Very well appointed, everything looked brand new. The staff of the hotel were all really nice. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. The valet was fast as lightning! A great group. The breakfast was really great. Eggs, potatoes, sausage, oatmeal, fresh juices and breads....Our stay was actually perfect. We highly recommend this hotel.

Wonderful location and property
Reviewed 1 week ago

This hotel is beautiful and located right on the waterfront in Hoboken. It is a great location for exploring not only Hoboken but is also within walking distance to the PATH train into NYC. My room was spacious, very clean, and had a partial view of the Hudson and NYC skyline. It is expensive, but because they are truly the only hotel right in Hoboken you don't have much choice if you need to be right in town as I had to. So, if you're looking for an economical way to tour NYC but trying to avoid the costs of hotels and parking there, you could find better options in Jersey City and other places nearby for that. For my trip I needed to be right in Hoboken so this was my only choice. That said, I am so glad they have such a beautiful property and I would stay again the next time I need to be there. Lastly, I would like to mention how friendly and helpful the front desk staff were to me, at both check in and check out. Most times they are the true first impression of the hotel and they did a wonderful job of making me feel welcome!

Birthday Surprise
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

I first want to start by saying that my experience at the W Hoboken from start to finish was absolutely exceptional. At check in Juan could see that I was freezing and actually placed a heater by my hands to keep me warm during the check in process. Both Maria & Juan went above and beyond and actually surprised me with a birthday surprise (tray of cupcakes) in my room upon arrival. I was not expecting that and it was very sweet! I forgot the other guest service agents name (however, he is from New Orleans) and he was able to place my cousin on the same floor as me which made it very helpful! He was very friendly and guest service oriented. The rooms were very spacious and clean & if you can get a view of the Hudson ... you will not be disappointed! You have a wonderful staff here at the W Hoboken that did not disappoint & I look forward to my next trip back at the property. Thank you Thank you Thank You !

Amazing hotel
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

My family and I stayed here in April last year and had an amazing stay.

We only had the room so I couldn’t comment on anything else but the staff were so friendly and willing to help with anything. We were going to Jersey Mills (highly recommend) and the staff happily helped us book it.

The room was spacious with a mini fridge and massive tv, not that we used it! The view was by far the best part about the room we were lucky enough to have the view straight over Manhattan skyline.

We were recommended this hotel after our relatives stayed here at New year 2017. I’m so glad they did! Our trip was to New York City, so initially we were planning to stay in Manhattan but I’m so glad we stayed here instead. I’m not a city girl myself so Hoboken is the perfect city if you’re the same. The metro station is a 10 minute walk away.

Would definitely recommend this hotel to other people and come back here myself.

Attentive staff and excellent room
Reviewed 1 month ago

We were recommended Hoboken by a friend because it was near enough to the city but not as expensive. Hoboken itself is a lovely place with some great restaurants and bars. The hotel is a 5 minute walk to the path train which takes you to 33rd st in Manhatten. The staff were great from the minute we arrived although the card machine didn't work (we tried 3 cards ) even though it worked everywhere else! So we had to leave a cash deposit behind the desk which was the majority of our cash so we had to withdraw more. Even though there is an ATM at the hotel I was still charged by my card company! The rooms were nice and spacious we stayed on the 17th floor with an amazing view of the Manhatten skyline. The housekeeping staff were the highlight of staff for us although I can't remember her name. Always greeting us, asking us if we needed anything and generally being friendly.

Breakfast was very good. The pancakes and steak and eggs were among the best I had whilst in new York although the wait was quite long on the Sunday morning.

One tip - sign up for the spg rewards club ( it's free) before you go otherwise the WiFi in your room is $10 per day. We did have some trouble with connecting and had to ring the front desk twice despite being told it had been sorted.

Overall excellent hotel and we'll worth a stay!
