Excellent location

Siem Reap, Cambodia

Have stayed here 6 times over the past 15 years Great location and very central All great except for the $25 per night destination fee which can be credited to various purchases such as room service at high prices and fees

Beaux-Arts building in great location near Union Square

Chicago, Illinois

W Union Square is in an older landmark building which appears to have been refurbished into a hotel many years ago. It retains a lot of character while also offering some really gorgeous shared spaces like the Living Room lounge on the ground floor. It's directly across from the park and within walking distance of the East Village and Flatiron sections of the city. There were lots of people out and about in the area day and night. Service was good although check in was delayed as they could not locate my Marriott rewards info in the system, which ultimately was cleared up when I found my number and called down to the desk after getting to my room. The room was clean and inviting with the temperature set at 65 degrees which was perfect for me, and a nice respite from the hot muggy temperatures outside. The view from the room (816) was nothing worth looking at - the side of another building - but the interior of the space was nice. Really comfortable bed and a big mirror which made the room seem bigger, and the Bliss lemon and sage toiletries were awesome. The shower pressure was perfect. Closet was a bit tight for hanging clothes because the iron is tucked away in the same space. There were plenty of outlets for charging all the stuff needing a charge. Overall this is a great spot and you cannot beat the location.
