My husband and I stayed here from 18/6/ - 22/06/13, this is the first time we have stayed in the financial district and we were pleasantly surprised!!! The hotel is near the subway, Battery Park is within walking distance as is South Street Seaport. The shop Century 21 is only a few minutes walk away. The hotel is beautiful with a minimalistic feel which we liked, the rooms were cleaned daily and were immaculate with the mini bar being refilled daily with soft drinks and snacks. On our previous stays in Manhattan we have always stayed in Midtown but would definitely stay here again its less noisy and the rooms are huge!!! The staff were friendly and couldn't do enough for you.
