This hotel is very modern, clean and so close to the 9-11 Memorial that we could see the fountains from the roof top and awesome view from the room as well. The subway locations are very convenient. The walk to Little Italy is short and they have THE BEST ITALIAN FOOD I've ever experienced.

The World Center Hotel was one wonderful experience. Starting with a very quick and efficient check-in, to a free upgrade to a very clean and spacious suite on the 16th floor with perfect views to Ground Zero and the World Trade Centre, to the Root-top Restaurant and Terrace (on the Terrace, you can relax and enjoy the views without having...

I can't begin to praise this establishment. It was everything I could have asked for in New York. We looked on line for a property that had it all, not expecting it. When we arrived it was late and our room was comfortable with a kitchenette including a 2 burner stove, but we had no view and we we on... More

Stayed four nights at this great hotel. The hotel actually has the same concept hotel as Club Quarters right next door i.e. low rates, good quality rooms, free water machines in the hall, etc. Friendly staff, clean rooms and then a nice location down town. Can really recommend the hotel's outdoor terrace on the 20th floor, with excellent view of... More

The next morning we headed out early and Dawn at the desk was so nice and helpful. She gave us wonderful... More

I have stayed at this hotel numerous times over the last 2 months as I had business across the street at Brookfield Place. The location for me was perfect. I just walked around the block, up the stairs, and across the walkway bridge. Every stay I had was booked through a travel website and not WCH website - never once... More

Rooms are modern but smaller than normal hotel. There is bottled water on every floor. This hotel is located right across the street from 9/11 Memorial and One World Trade Center. It is walking distance to some great sights like Wall ST, Battery park, Cruises to Statue of Liberty/Ellis Island, Chinatown and Brooklyn Bridge. The Top of the world Bar... More
