Location was good. Room was good size, bed nice and we were happy with our time there. Very small problem was never enough washcloths in room, there were two of us, only one washcloth (but fitted right away when I requested another). Overall, we were very satisfied and would probably stay again.
The only structural issue were the steps, no doorman, so we had to struggle up those steps with our bags into the hotel. Also, we didn't see anyplace to get ice for our room.
This is a lovely hotel in middle of mid-Manhattan. A real gem. We enjoyed our stay a lot, the staff was super friendly and helpful. The room was well designed and decorated. Nice touch was the Nespresso coffee machine and L'Occitane toiletries.
Everything was perfect
Great central location. Staff were extremely polite and provided very good service. Room was spacious, modern decor and very clean.
We had a room on the front side of the hotel and the only negative was the noise from the road outside in the early hours. Our friends who had a room on the rear of the hotel didn’t however hear this at all so it could be avoided.
Rooms were roomy and nice.
Front lobby/hall was very dark! Front steps
Modern redo of an old building has been done tastefully.

Guests at The William can dine at The Shakespeare Dining Room which has style inspired by the early 19th century. The food is heavily influenced by British cuisine. The Shakespeare Pub looks just like a medieval pub from the Stratford upon Avon area. There is good pub food and some good drink choices served there. Guests can have a nice cocktail at Raines Law Room at The William. Outside the hotel, there are plenty of other dining options that are easily accessible on foot.
The William is located within walking distance from Grand Central Station, as well as the iconic Times Square. There are many corporate headquarters buildings located in the area also, so business travelers will find this to be a perfect location. New York has much more to see and do including, Broadway shows, Rockefeller Center, and Central Park.
The William is located right in the heart of the city. Manhattan’s main draws are all very close to this location and guests will have no problem getting to whatever it is they want to do, whether it’s for business or for pleasure.
