This hotel is situated close to the Wall Street subway station. It is a new hotel that is attached to the Club Quarters hotel. The rooms are perfect, especially for the $105 HOWIRE price that I paid(minus fees). the lobby is pleasant with two FREE computers and a TV(not working at the time). The hotel has FREE INTERNET(a premium) which is not normal for most NYC hotels, but normal for any CLUB QUARTERS-related hotel. There is a separation form the CLUB QUARTERS section of the hotel, which is something novel. The website advertises free coffee all day in the lobby, but there was NONE. When I asked, I was told that it was only on the CLUB QUARTERS side. Hmmmmmm!
The room was incredible.... totally electronic climate control on a little panel next to the bed. My room overlooked the 911 site which gives an incredible view of the construction. The bed was extremely comfortable with great pillows. The third floor(where I was) had vending, ice and an ATM.
THE ONLY DRAWBACK was the lot jack-hammer noise around 6:30 A,M. It woke me right up and I was barely able to go back to sleep. I had wanted to sleep in, but........
The jewel was the 20th floor restaurant(open to all) that was open all day, with outdoor dining that was spectacular(if you could stand the construction noise). It is one of the best that I have seen.
Overall, this is a great location for business in the downtown Wall Street area, but, unless you like subway travel(and the heat below ground is unbelievable), this is not close to major attractions, museums, Time Square, etc. However, for $105 for a **** hotel, I could not resist.
