Does the W Hotel “match” Hoboken?

2/24/2010:

[Continuing the ORIGINAL Hoboken411 “Photo of the Day” series…]

Hoboken Photo of the Day – 2/24/2010

Was admiring the splendid view from the ledge at Stevens Institute the other day – along with some students and visiting parents. And I overheard one woman say “That W Hotel building looks so bulbous and out of place along Hoboken’s skyline – who authorized that construction?”

Thought that was funny, and snapped a photo. It does look like a mismatch to some degree!

PS – if you have images collecting dust on your camera or hard drive – send them in for eventual inclusion on Hoboken411! Please state how you’d like to be credited in your email, and a description – if desired!!

I’m glad we finally have a hotel in town.
They do a lot of wedding business, and are a very attractive option for those who want to get married at a hotel because they have a lot of out of town guests.

The W is ugly, so is the communist looking Marineview that houses BnRs living off of the system.

i wonder how the W is actually doing as a business? do people from all around (cake boss fans) actually come and stay here? do all the jersey shore guidos really line up for the chandelier room? i’ve been to the lobby bar once or twice, but it’s nothing special. how about zylo and bliss spa?

I attempted to go to the Chandelier Room recently, but didn’t feel like spending $500 for the required bottle service.

that’s ironic coming from standing on Steven’s land with their “landmark” (meaning it’s a landmark from the water, not that it’s at all special looking) tower which looks out of place to anyone who doesn’t know what they’re looking at. random tall black building standing higher than any others and by itself.

the W is OK, not great, no bad. The Q is what will go in the lot to its south. and what will become of the NJ Transit train yard PA plan with all of those g-d awful skyscrapers. Luckily (?) commercial real estate is in the tanker and residential high density is having a tough time holding value/finding buyers/tenants. So at least that plan is on hold, or so it seems.

Here’s the same view from 2003 that I took:
