W New York Downtown Shoots For December 1st, 2009
Today in "good luck with that one" news: we never thought we'd see the day, but the W New York Downtown seems to have selected an opening date.
For a long time, the hotel's website was sittin' pretty with an "Opening 2010" splashed up across the top, and the only news we were hearing about the place were coming in the form of updates on the latest construction disasters and some rather upsetting outdoor terrace views.
However, the site doesn't have a whole lot of info about the hotel itself (no amenity lists, bookable rooms or particularly groundbreaking renderings well, except for this one of the sky bar, above), but at least there's a date, right?
Not to be those people, but we're going to guess the actual opening might arrive sometime in March or April of 2010. But we'll see, won't we?
