We also learned that internet access will cost $14.95 for 24-hours. Bummer. And if you're looking to get around the steep room by using your SPG points, this hotel is a Category 5 hotel meaning it will take between 12,000 to 16,000 Starpoints for a free night. Or you could try to earn a free weekend night at Starwood hotels this summer.

The W New York Downtown to Open August 16 at $399 a Night
It looks like the W New York Downtown has pushed its opening date back yet AGAIN to August 16. But there is some good news to be had here. We were actually able to make reservations for that date and found a wonderful room with a king bed available for a very steep $399 a night. A spectacular room with double beds was going for $429 a night.
This signals to us that the W New York Downtown means business about this opening date. Sadly, we don't see any special opening rate offers which we think we deserve after waiting nearly FOREVER for this hotel to open.
Anyhoo, the guestroom renderings on the site do look a little cheerier than the rendering we have. Looking at the amenities we see the guestrooms will also have window benches (we gather these will be similar to W Hollywood), W waffle bathrobes, 37-inch flat-screen TVs, a walk-in shower with a rainforest shower and the always-present Bliss products.
