W New York Union Square
Every part of my wedding at the W Union Square was fantastic, and I would definitely recommend this venue and their services. The onsite event coordinators John Benke and Leah Dreskler are fantastic. They helped me secure a day that had been tentatively booked, negotiated a lower price than listed, and responded to every email I sent within a business day, usually within the hour I sent it. Even though I was planning this wedding from out of state, they made it an easy process. They set up a menu and cake tasting, tours of the venue, and a meeting with the chef to select the menu choices. A reservation specialist expanded the room block to almost double its initial size, securing the low group rate for most of the guests; those who did not book in time still received a discounted rate. The ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception rooms were beautifully arranged. The guest rooms are great. My husband and I were upgraded to the WOW suite for the night before our wedding and our wedding night. It was amazing. Leah had champagne and yummy treats sent to our room daily. Leah was there the entire day of the wedding, helped with the rehearsal, told everyone when to enter, and stayed until the end of the reception to make sure everything was perfect. There is not one negative thing I could say about any part of the wedding at the W Hotel Union Square. They really did give me the wedding of my dreams.
The W Hotel was terrific. The Great Room is gorgeous and provided the perfect atmosphere for our ceremony and reception. The staff was very responsive and made it the day go smoothly. We had a day of wedding planner, but could have done without one as the staff (John Benke and John Williams)took care of everthing.
The W also catered the food which was fantastic. Thank you for a beautiful day!
I always wanted to stay at The W in Union Square and we decided that our wedding night would be the perfect time to splurge a little. I got a suite for the night before (for some BMs and I) and for the night of for us. Pretty close to the day of I decided I wanted to be in the same room for both nights to avoid the hassle of moving rooms on the day of. Sarah, the sales manager there was very accommodating with this and various other questions and arrangements for my inlaws, etc.
I was slightly disappointed for 2 reasons. I spoke to them prior to the day and had my MOH call before leaving the room for the wedding to have the room cleaned. When we got back it was clean but not spotless. I found this annoying. I had also specifically asked and mentioned a few times prior that I wanted there to be a bottle of champagne in the room when we got back after the reception. It wasn’t there. We were so pooped anyway that it didn’t really matter but I found this annoying as I had asked.
