I needed a place during a very high priced hotel week in Manhattan, so went with a Priceline Express Hotel Deal for a 4 star hotel and got this. Nice, clean, comfortable, convenient. Lots of construction around, but once you get your bearings you can navigate. Love the Tribeca Whole Foods on Greenwich between Murray and Warren. Great morning walk... More

I booked a night's stay at the World Center based on a recommendation from a friend. I chose the standard room with a view of Freedom Tower/ WTC memorial. I was not disappointed. I arrived about an hour early and they already had a room available to check into. The window is large and able to be opened for a... More

We visited New York City recently and stayed at the World center hotel. This is an ideal location if you want to be away from the craziness of time square. It is located right next to the memorial fountains for 911. And the 9/11 museum is a five minute walk away. It is also a 10 minute walk to the... More

This hotel is pretty much in Ground Zero (how's it still standing?), it used to be the walkway for the 9/11 memorial, and now its in a temporary no exit street surrounded by construction. If driving it is a very difficult location to get to as there is many one way lanes surrounding and the area is packed with tourists... More

I searched for the most inexpensive rates in Manhattan, and while it was not a cheap rate, for Manhattan it was very reasonable for a Saturday night. The hotel is right next to the 911 memorial and is a short walk to two different subway lines. It was extremely well kept and had nice perks like free filtered water and... More

Currently staying one night pre-cruise at the World Center Hotel. Very easy check-in late at night. Our room on the 14th floor has a wonderful view of the WTC north and south pools. We have a standard room, and it's clean and quiet, although I know from the privacy signs on the doors that we have neighbors all around us.... More

There is a construction next to the hotel so be prepared to enjoy one of the noisiest night ever. I strongly suggest to look for other alternatives. The staff did not offer or manage any type of solutions.

Staff were fantastic, friendly and they were there when there was a problem and rectified it within five minutes. The room was cozy with a nice view (6th floor),We never heard any noise, even between rooms.It was... More

Just got back from a trip to NYC, stayed at the World Center Hotel. Rooms were clean, beds were comfortable. The staff was very nice, and accommodating. Some rooms overlook Ground Zero. The hotel restaurant/bar was good, and I had a great burger there for lunch., It has an outdoor patio which is very pleasant on the 20th floor. The... More

Awesome location. My first night ever in downtown New York City, and thanks to the World Center Hotel, my visit was an awesome stay. Clean and modern, very comfortable room. Even the High Def TV had a great channel selection with a perfect HD picture. The only nit picking thing I can find is the in room coffee maker only... More

Neighborhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
