Gramercy and Murray Hill, New York City, New York
W Hotels' 270-room Union Square property greatly resembles other W's in New York: comfortable beds, modern rooms, an excellent gym, and plenty of business travelers in the butterfly-decorated, techno-soundtracked lobby. Guests at this W are greeted by a massive, dramatic floating staircase overlooking an edgy lobby outfitted in neutral colors. Rockwell incorporated some elements meant to evoke a feeling of nature -- patches of grass growing on the front desk, for example.
