I'm a little late to review this as it was nearly 2 years ago that we traveled here - and my husband and I only stayed here one night - but our experience was too good to not write about!
We stayed at the Wall Street Inn the final night of our honeymoon - which was a cruise that departed and returned to NYC. We wanted to take advantage of an early return and extend our honeymoon an extra day in NYC as I had never been to the city before. With funds extremely tight due to wedding planning and an already expensive cruise-vacation, we hoped to find a reasonably priced place in NYC that would still be special enough for a final night of honeymooning!
The Wall Street Inn was amazingly priced for a Saturday night - probably because of its location. I don't know much about NYC, but I imagine this area of the city is busier during the week due to its proximity to Wall Street and other financial buildings. The cost of the hotel was significantly less than most others of similar ratings.
I suppose many people want to stay closer to the center of NYC on a trip - but this hotel was close to many attractions that we enjoyed walking to: Trinity Church, Wall Street/NY-Stock Exchange, the WTC site (still under construction when we visited in June 2011), and a Tiffany's (what's not to like about that, ladies?!). Plus, we were a few blocks away from a subway station and used that to get to Times Square and other more tourist-friendly sites.
The room itself was charming. Perhaps I'm jaded a bit as we had just gotten off a 5-day cruise with a tiny cabin, but I found the room very spacious - the bathroom was as big as our entire cabin on the cruise ship and the amenities in the bathroom alone were above and beyond what most chains provide: plush robes, high-end toiletries, and a tub so deep and wide you could almost swim in it! There was ample closet space and the queen-sized bed was comfortable. I remember the elevators were a little old and rickety - but didn't seem like complete death traps!
The lobby had a constant supply of pastries and beverages and included a simple breakfast in the morning that was more than adequate for the cost. The concierge helped us coordinate a taxi pick up to get to our flight and was super helpful with ideas the night before for travel and dining.
The only gripe I had was that I think this place is so well hidden that no one knows about it! The taxi driver that picked us up at the port off the cruise ship had NO IDEA where it was - had to call his dispatcher who also had no idea - and we incurred a hefty 411-fee and taxi-fare finding the place. Not sure if we just had the only taxi service in NYC who didn't know about the Wall Street Inn, or if it really is that hidden.
As we only had about 24 hours in NYC, we plan to go back someday (hopefully soon) - and the Wall Street Inn will be at the top of our list for hotel considerations!
