Morning View - W Hotel Union Square
The Beaux Arts-style W Hotel in Union Square was built in 1911 as the German Insurance Building but had its named changed to the Guardian Life Building during WWI. Starwood Hotels bought it for their "W" brand in 2000. Did you know that "W" stands for "Whatever, Whenever"? Yeah, me either. The lobby is beautiful, I recommend sticking your head in, next time you're in Union Square to shop at Discount Shoe Warehouse.
