This review is long overdue. I took advantage of a great Jet Blue sale rate from Oakland to JFK to surprise my nine-year-old son with his first-ever trip to New York City over the Veterans’ Day holiday weekend in 2012. I used AmEx points for three nights and chose Holiday Inn Wall Street (51 Nassau Street) because the location was a perfect downtown hub and because reviews of other higher end hotels in our price range weren’t that great. Our trip was scheduled ten days after Hurricane Sandy hit Manhattan and we did not know what to expect. While much of lower Manhattan was still recovering from water damage, the hotel was fine. We were on a Friday night red-eye with a planned hotel arrival at 6:00 a.m. I phoned The Holiday Inn the day before our departure to let them know that, while I booked Friday night, our actual arrival would be around 6 a.m. on Saturday morning, so we’d be able to immediately check-in to our room. When we arrived at the hotel, the front desk had noted my phone call, and had our keys immediately available. And they didn't care that I had used points to pay for the room. The front desk staff was incredibly competent and friendly. We went up to our king bedroom and took a power nap. The hallways of this hotel are indeed narrow, but not a big deal. The king bed corner room itself was very spacious for a New York hotel room, and there was even room to move about the bathroom. The shower had decent water pressure. The room was clean, the bed incredibly comfortable, and we even had a view of the new Freedom Tower. The hotel is conveniently located to numerous downtown attractions and subway stations, just two blocks away. My son was excited to experience the nearby Dunkin Donuts and downtown location of Les Halles. While the hotel is tucked away on a quiet block, the lobby is tiny, and the hallways are narrow, this hotel is a perfect spot as a base location to experience all that Manhattan and Brooklyn have to offer. Although we didn’t eat at the hotel restaurant (there are too many fabulous places to dine in NYC!), I was glad to have the option available. Hotel staff was able to offer the best subway lines around the City and back to JFK. We were able to check-out but leave our luggage with the bell staff so we could do one final tour of Battery Park before returning to JFK. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!
