W New York Hotel Review: One of five Ws in the city, the W New York draws one of Midtown's chicest (and youngest) crowds. Guests lounge in the signature Living Room on sofas and chairs in front of the fireplace or play chess on tree-stump game tables. Organic touches reflecting the feng shui design philosophy are found in the kota stone flooring, schist counters and a variety of woods. The Garden Wall is a lobby collage of seedpods, leaves and dried grasses, a waterfall cascades down the glass window that separates the lobby from the restaurant and the 688 rooms and suites feature containers of live wheatgrass. Accommodations have sumptuous beds with down comforters, pillows and chenille throws. Amenities include CD players, dual-line phones with cordless handsets and 27-inch TVs with Internet access. The in-house restaurant, Heartbeat, is open only for breakfast. Whiskey Blue (one of many Rande Gerber-owned clubs) has found a loyal following with its hip bar and cozy banquettes and sofas. Bliss49 offers a popular range of spa treatments in a two-floor, 10,000-square-foot space. SWEAT Fitness Center features the latest and greatest in workout equipment.
