My overall experience was excellent. My only less than positive experience was checking in when there were only two people checking in guests. However, the person who checked me in was very apologetic for taking so long before she could check me in.
Other than I had a room directly looking into the office building next door, my room was very nice. The hotel is only about 16 months old and in excellent condition. Not sure if my room was typical, but i had a small suite with a separate sitting area and bedroom. Lots of nice touches, including sliding panels between the sitting and sleeping areas, separate and quite large shower area, separate and well labeled touch sensitive lighting throughout the suite, to flat screen TVs, and A/V ports to make it easy to connect your various devices to the living room TV. A few of the rooms have Hudson River views, but given the property is only 16 stories, most of views, even those on the Hudson River side have obstructed or no river view. There is a roof top bar which does have excellent views of the river and New York Harbor, including the Statue of Liberty.
The hotel is almost right next to the Hudson so the location may be inconvenient unless you are doing business in the Financial district or visiting the World Trade Center attractions. However, if you like to walk there is a great walking path along the Hudson and the High Line is about a 35 minute walk from the Conrad. Subway is about a ten minute walk which will get you anywhere else in Manhattan in 20 minutes or less on the express trains which all have stops within walking distance of the hotel. Wall Street is maybe a 15 - 20 minute walk.
There are a number of restaurants as well as shopping nearby. The area, Hudson River Park, really is like a separate neighborhood with pretty much everything you will need without going very far. I can recommend the hotel in terms of the property and staff. However, location may be a problem for some as the subway is a bit of a walk and it is a bit far from some NYC attractions.
