We stayed here overnight in advance of a cruise ship departure. We were specifically looking for a place close to the World Trade Center and some other landmarks from our younger days.
The hotel was in its first months since the extensive renovations and we were very impressed with the peaceful decor and the VERY quiet passageways. We never heard another guest during our entire stay, which is not the usual experience in any hotel. For that reason alone we would return.
Check-in went very smoothly. We were staying on a points reward and had somewhat expected to be given a "lesser" room and maybe less enthusiastic service for a stay that is not generating income. We couldn't have been more wrong; we were give a room with a lovely view of the park and river and the check-in staff were most gracious.
As others have mentioned, the bathroom is not private. I'm sure it's all very high-end design, but this is going to be a deal-breaker for some. I'm not sure what the point of that is. We loved the huge walk in shower and could only have wished for the temperature to be a few degrees higher.
It was an easy walk to the WTC and points south; there were plenty of options for restaurants within a block of the hotel. If you bring a dog, there is a park right across the street to take a walk.
The bar on the 16th floor overlooks the river and has a nice view. It caters to the 20-something crowd and the sheer volume of the music drove us off after just a few minutes.
