I would definitely recommend getting a room on the south-facing side of the hotel, since the north side faces directly on the 9/11 site and there is pretty much constant construction going on in the area.
The bed and bedding is really very special. We slept so well. The bathroom is best for tall people since the toilet paper is across the room from the toilet (!) and I never got within a foot of the shower head in order to adjust it (I am 5'2".
We also loved the free coffee in the morning and the complimentary New York Times every day we were there.
The location is close to Wall Street, Battery Park and the Staten Island ferry. It doesn't have the best subway access, since there is only the E train close by.
The DJ music in the lobby was just annoying--lots of electronic noise without much talent.
