Opened in August 2011, W Hotel’s Lower Manhattan location is on top of the footprint of the old Twin Towers. This 58-story hotel touts all of the amenities that the W brand is known for: signature bed and bathrobes, rainforest shower, and a snack-filled Munchie Box on a whim.

After a devastating fire in 2005 damaged the original 1882 main house, the hotel reopened a new five-suite 30,000-square-foot main building in August of 2008. The new lodge's style is updated Arts and Crafts with antique local furniture.
