Let me get the problem out of the way first: $15 A DAY FOR WIFI IN YOUR ROOM AND NO CHARGE IN THE LOBBY?????
So: people can wander in off the street to check their email, but once you are a paying customer, no such. This is totally idiotic but if you aren't using a laptop ignore this part and move on.
The rest was just magical! Great helpful staff, very cool public premises. Felice is a worthy Italian restaurant and the bars are perfectly decorated.
Location is excellent, Wall St/South St Seaport area. Too many tourists but what can you do, it's NYC in the summer, Ground Zero, etc. Very near Fulton St for subway access.
Room was big enough for two, unusual for a boutique hotel. GREAT A/C !!! Nice furnishings and prompt hot water.
Wifi policy only loses the fifth star. I got a great rate on booking.com, elsewise would have been way too pricey for me.
Wonderful choice, highly reccomended!
