“unexpected treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

Needing one extra night in NYC after three nights on the upper westside near Central Park, I booked a night at the Wyndham Garden Chinatown from a Travelzoo special. In theory, I liked the idea of it being in Chinatown, on the edge of Little Italy not far from the World Trade Center and harbor. In reality, it was perfect. We arrived four hours early for check-in but the front desk manager put us in a room right away. We walked into our hotel room (on the 10th floor) and our hearts opened up--the room had a city view that included the Empire State Building. Compact but very clean and modern with fridge, good tv, coffee maker, etc. Really comfortable bed. We dropped our luggage and took off. Walked and walked--every street was interesting and took us to amazing places. Souvenirs, interesting food stores and foot massages in Chinatown; amazing restaurants in Little Italy; the World Trade Center memorial and the new building were profound. We stopped for a delicious lunch at an Italian outdoor cafe on the esplanade over-looking the Statue of Liberty and spent a few hours in the Jewish Heritage Museum. Took a taxi back to the Wyndham and went up to the 18th floor for a drink. The bartender told us to go up one more floor and see the view. It was incredible. Next day, we walked through the old lower eastside to Greenwich Village and back to the hotel. I have been to New York several times but have never had this much fun or learned so much. I credit my adventurous husband who nudged me on but he was definitely inspired by the hotel and its location. I highly recommend the Wyndham Garden Chinatown and will put it at the top of my list for my next visit.

Our room had floor to ceiling windows and, at night, we could see the Empire State Building lit up in red, white and blue. The room was large by NYC standards and had a desk/chair plus a sofa. Wifi was free and worked consistently well (not always the case in other hotels). Staff was courteous and helpful and the room was immaculate. This was our first stay in the neighborhood (I grew up in NYC and we've stayed in many parts of the city), and I loved being near the restaurants of Chinatown and Little Italy...a couple of blocks from Ferrara's and Black Seed Bagels...how bad can that be? We used the valet parking which was not much different in price from garages nearby and made for much less schlepping. Subway was nearby and convenient for getting to sights further uptown, although we did take the car out one day to go to the New York Botanical Gardens.

Room Tip: We were on the third floor and, while we heard a few sirens during the night, it wasn't too disr...

This hotel is right in the heart of busy Chinatown - but is quiet, modern, clean, and welcoming. You can walk to several landmarks or easily find subway stops within a few blocks.

This hotel was simple, but perfect (and perfectly clean!) for downtown activities. Just moments from Chinatown, Soho, The New Museum and the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges. Didn't eat in the hotel restaurant as there are plenty of good spots in the neighborhood and great spots in Little Italy are literally steps away. The staff could not have been more helpful - very kind and aimed to please.

Despite all the positive feedback for this new hotel, here is some factual experience:
1) the rooms are tiny.
2) The wall between bathroom and bedroom is semi c-thru. Sanitary duties become a shared experience.
3) Drinks at the bar are expensive.
4) the location is Chinatown, fun fr 1/2 days but not the New York experience that you'll get more up town
5) Rooms are clean
6) the hotel is new, everything works well.
My judgement; I will never go there again.
