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
  • Bliss Spa
  • Close to Grand Central Station
  • Tranquil and Serene

Great Location ....... But !!


I just spent a lot of money for a 10 night stay at The Maxwell Hotel NYC. The location great but a customer staying 10 nights you would think would bet a decent room but mine was old small and dark facing then busy street. Every night the beeping of horns were my lullaby folks. The worst part was the Waldorf Astoria was being refurbished 24/7 so I had the delight of listening to that also. The last two days there was a burst pipe on the street so we had men drilling also but not one word or apology from the staff Thank God Rito the concierge was very helpful but this hotel needs a good shake up and I will not be recommending it to anyone
