I am a little rush to search right now.

The andaz 5th only has Andaz XL View King for tonight.

I will be using a free night certificate. Booke out of a plat account.

How is the room is it nice? Worth staying for a night out with the wife? Or better save it for something nicer?

Has anyone stayed at the W Union Square?  My wife and I are thinking about spending a day and a night in the Village/Chelsea area and we have like 120k SPG points.  I also have about 88k HHonors points if there's anything downtown worth looking at.

So we ended up spending the night at the W New York in Union Square.  It's a nice hotel and the location was excellent for us.  They only let you book the smallest room type on the website so of course I called SPG and asked if it was possible to upgrade to something larger.  They put us in the next size up room on the 8th floor with a pretty good view of Union Square, for an additional 1500 Starpoints.  I felt it was totally worth it.  My biggest complaint is instead of a minibar inside a cabinet (like I'm used to), they have a whole bunch of goodies out on the counter, as well as underneath it and luckily I found the price list buried in the middle of it all, because one small bag of popchips goes for $7 over there.  We bought a bag twice the size down the street for $2.19.  When I stayed at the St Regis (last year) we got two free water bottles and a bowl of fresh fruit in the room, also free.  So until I noticed the well-hidden price list I thought the chips and granola might have been a perk.  They have an Acura that you can reserve to get a free ride within a reasonable distance, but it was booked basically the whole time we were there.  They also have free granny smith apples in the lobby :)
