(David beat me to it, but I'll go ahead and send this:)

If tabs are on (Options-->Show Tabs), then Cmd-W closes a tab, analogous to
closing a tab in Terminal or Safari.  The window is closed when the last tab
is eliminated, and the frame is closed when the last window is closed.

If Options-->Show Buffers in New Frames is checked, then Cmd-W *will* close
the window (unless the window has multiple tabs).  Again, the frame is
closed when the last window is eliminated.

If neither of the above options is checked, then Cmd-W simply closes the
buffer, and the window if more than one exists in the current frame.  Frame
behavior is the emacs default -- the top item in buffer-list is displayed in
the same frame.
