I was at my night out with my wife and we have a nice room with a better customer service. Nice location....and wonderful view from the 12 floor. The edge decoration of the lobby give it to you th essence of the hotel.

My wife and I stayed here on Sat Feb 5 and again had a wonderful WOW experience. We were greeted us at the front desk and again quickly gave us an outstanding corner room overlooking and the Hudson. We had dinner downstairs and enjoyed my NY strip steak (prepared just perfectly) and caught the subway up to BROADWAY (about 15... More

We stayed 2 nights at this hotel. The staff at the reception was not welcoming. However, the room was huge (compared to others rooms in NYC) and really clean. We also had an amazing view on the Freedom Tower. The hotel is located near a Subway Station. At night, the area is quiet but there are some good restaurants around.... More

Hotel has a good and quite location in front of ground zero. Hotel has a modern style and staff is friendly. Breakfast at the restaurant (close to entrance - doesn't belong to hotel) was good. Wallet parking guys where not very friendly.

The uniqueness of this hotel in NY is how modern and quiet it is. I had a room on the 11th floor (not so high) and it's completely quiet, although it's very close to busy areas around the ground zero site. The room was clean, well equipped, modern. The A/C was functional and not too noisy (and no unwanted noises... More

I booked this hotel for an overnight getaway with my boyfriend. I had an amazing experience between the rooms and the staff. The rooms were very clean and quiet. We were given a free drink ticket once I checked into the hotel for the main floor bar which has amazing lights and beautiful views of the Freedom Tower. I would... More

We loved this hotel! Happy staff, nice room with a fabulous view, and location. It's in a quiet neighbourhood close to everything you'll need. And for these newbies to NYC, lots of helpful tips from the concierge and the doorman. I've read other reviews about room size, etc, but this is New York, people! We found the room to be... More

The lobby design is cool. It's very reminiscent of W's from overseas which is welcome for domestic properties. The room was good. Very white washed with some cool design elements, but the ruffled throw pillows need to go. It's WAY too 2000 suburban housewife. Not cool anymore. The sleep was comfy. The room could use a little refresh since the... More

Staying in Financial District

Neighborhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
