I stayed here for 3 nights in August for a business conference and the hotel is what you'd expect for a Ritz Carlton. My room had a great view of the Statue of Liberty along with a telescope I never did figure out how to use! The room was spacious, with nice furnishings especially for a NYC hotel room which are typically much smaller. The bathroom was huge with a separate tub and shower with large sink and separate toilet. The hotel is conveniently located near the new 9/11 Memorial and Wall Street. I walked around the area pretty easily and met up with a friend to eat at the nearby Stone Street which I highly recommend to anyone visiting the hotel. I used the hotel gym while there which was nicely equipped with a lovely roof top view although it was ridiculously hot in there. They need much better ventilation and A/C in that room. I ate in the lobby restaurant one day for lunch and it was adequate but overly priced for what you get and the portion. I ordered a chicken soup and salad and the soup was probably the worst I've ever had - Campbell's soup is better! It had no flavor at all. I did eat the hotel's catering via the in-hotel conference I attended and that was much better. The biggest complaint I have is that the hotel wi-fi was out for 2 of the 3 days I was there. Luckily I had my own wi-fi hotspot but considering the hotel is likely frequented by business travelers (given the location), it's ridiculous to be without wi-fi for that long. It would have also been nice to have a mini-fridge in the room as there was no where cold for me to store drinks and leftover food, snacks, etc. Other than that, it was a pleasant stay in a nice location.
