Our party of four booked two rooms for one night. Even though our stay was very short we were overwhelmed with the kindness of the staff at the hotel. We had been lost and circling for quite a while, even though the GPS kept saying we had arrived we couldn't find the place. (traveling with husbands so, of course, asked... More

I compete in fitness competitions and it can be very hard to find hotels with the amenities that I need (microwave, refrigerator, etc) especially when staying in large cities. After canceling a reservation elsewhere, I found World Center Hotel---WOW! Surpassed my expectations and needs, the room was spacious and clean, kitchenette and nice view. The filtered water stations on each... More

Great hotel with stunning view. The staff was very friendly. Very bad communication before the check-in when I asked the total amount of our stay with tax included. The rooms are great, modern and large for NYC. It's close to several subway stations. On my next visit to NY I will stay again in the same hotel.

Our first trip in several years and could not have been happier. We arrived early and they had no problems checking us in. We went right to our room and it was roomy and clean. Then we opened the curtains and the view took our breath away. Nothing between us and the World Trade Towers, breathtaking. The dinning room on... More

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...
