A Sanctuary in the City

Located on the Eastern side of Midtown Manhattan this was the Big Apple’s flagship W hotel. The property was designed to emphasise a tranquil atmosphere inspired by nature, earth, wind fire and water.
The Heartbeat restaurant and Living Room lounge provide a cosy atmosphere and if you are looking for a New York cocktail experience then look no further than Whiskey Blue.  The hotel is just a few blocks from Grand Central Station and within easy walking distance to all that Times Square, Fifth Avenue and Broadway has to offer.

  • East Side of Midtown Manhattan

Outstanding customer service

Barnsley, United Kingdom

My husband and I have booked to stay at the Maxwell Hotel for six nights in October for our honeymoon. We’ve been waiting 13 months for th trip as we’ve saved hard to stay at this hotel. I’ve had many family members and friends stay here in the past both when it was The W and as The Maxwell. Everyone raved about the customer service they received and also how nice the hotel is. We haven’t even arrived yet and I am already overwhelmed with the level of customer service we have received. Kevin Hong in particular has been outstanding. He has emailed me back with all my questions with no hesitation at all. As weve booed to stay for 6 nights we want to make our honeymoon one to remember and Kevin has certainly seen to that. He is an absolute credit to The Maxwell and I can’t wait to hopefully meet him when we arrive in five weeks. If this level of service what we’ve received before we’ve even arrived I can’t wait to see what the actual stay has in store! Keep up the good work Kevin.
