Four of us stayed at the W downtown NYC for a weekend and it was great. The rooms are not big but they are very clean, modern and comfortable. What else could you ask for since you really don't spend any time in the room except to shower and sleep. The bed was very comfortable and I loved the pillows.... More

All the money you pay to stay there and the sink was clogged. I called, the plumber came up and didn't knock just came in the room, I yelled at him,... More

Love the hotel. It's funky, modern, and upbeat. Location and view from my room was spot on. Andrew (concierge) was exceptional. Food surpassed my expectations. Breakfast- UGH due to SLOW service. This is due to restaurant construction I'm sure. I'll be back. Cheers!

The W downtown is in an amazing location! What a view of the world one tower. Could almost reach out and touch it! Battery park is a great very place to visit - boat, bars and shops and is just over the road. The interior of the hotel is really funky and modern and the rooms are spotlessly clean. Great... More

I love this Hotel. It's located minutes from soho and across the street from the world trade center memorial. There is also NY transit right around the corner from the hotel. I got from time square to the hotel in about 10 minutes on the train. There are also some great street vendors right outside of the hotel. The patio... More

I like the location of this hotel because it's really close to the NY attractions like 9-11 memorial, Battery Park, Wall St. and other places of interest. It's not too busy and close to subway. The staff I met with was very friendly and accommodating.

The room is nice and has a great view.. But there is only one outlet in the room. Also the refrigerator is $35 a day.. $35 for a refrigerator I wouldn't stay here again just off the strength of that..

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.
