The W Hotel stands tall along the Hoboken waterfront, with a sleek exterior style that continues well into its rooms and restaurants.

If you’re looking for a stay that pairs scenery with style and luxury, you’re in the right place. Here’s everything you need to know about one of Hoboken’s hippest waterfront spots: The W Hotel Hoboken.
Inside the W Hotel, Hoboken’s Hip Waterfront Getaway
Luxe and Scenic Guest Rooms and Suites
With 223 sleek and stylish guestrooms, including 20 suites, it’s hard to go wrong at the W Hotel. Expertly designed, the décor lets the sweeping Manhattan views do the talking. You can see Lower Manhattan up to the Upper West Side and beyond, depending on your room position. Pair drool-worthy views with serious pampering via the hotel’s pillow-top mattress, 350-thread-count sheets, and a goose down comforter, and it’ll be hard to ever check out.
Fresh Fare at the Halifax Waterfront Restaurant
Enjoy brunch, lunch, and dinner at Hoboken favorite Halifax, a trendy waterfront restaurant connected to the W Hotel. The restaurant incorporates northeastern farm and coastal cuisine, often local and sustainably sourced. Halifax chef Seadon Shouse is known for house-smoked meats and seafood—not to mention sea salt made from Montauk water. These delicious bites, plus the NYC scenery, promise a truly unforgettable meal on the Hudson River.
Sample Cocktails in Sleek Digs at The Living Room
Instead of a simple lobby area, the W Hotel boasts a stylish gathering spot, complete with its own drinks and cozy seating at the W Hoboken Living Room Bar. This lobby bar features a number of creative cocktails and drinks, with an array of private and group seating options, not to mention plugs for powering up that laptop and cranking through work. If you’re feeling particularly creative, don’t miss the build-your-own Bloody Mary bar from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
A Pet-Friendly Hoboken Hotel
If you’re hoping to bring Fido on your trip to Hoboken, we have good news: The W Hotel welcomes tail-wagging guests with open arms. There are stipulations, including one maximum pet per room and a pet deposit and daily fee, but you can rest assured your pup’s staying in luxury, with countless waterfront parks to explore during your visit.
PATH, NY Waterway, Train, and Bikeshare Access
Beyond the scenery and trendy digs, the W Hotel in Hoboken has one more luxury for guests: convenience. The W Hotel is located a quick walk from the PATH Train which takes travelers into the west side of Manhattan, down to the Financial District, or into Jersey City. From the same station, you can also catch the ferry into Lower Manhattan and Midtown Manhattan, or grab the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail into Jersey City out to Bayonne. And, if you’re hoping to explore Hoboken, hop on one of the bike-share options to meander along the nearly 20-mile Hudson River Waterfront Path, which links Bayonne all the way up past Fort Lee.
