Ok so my daughter and I try to visit NYC once a year. We have stayed at MANY
MANY hotels all across the city.. THANK GOD I FOUND WORLD CENTER HOTEL!! So I
book the room in advance on their website. The Hotel is smack dab in front of
Ground Zero( or as I call it GROUND HERO) I knew ahead of time that the
rebuilding of that area is non stop, therefore most likely it would be noisy ..
I didn't care .. Honestly Noise and NYC go hand in hand AND They are building
history in the making before my eyes so I don't care about the noise.
We get to the hotel and the lobby is SPOTLESS.. nice and cool on that SUPER HOT
HOT DAY.. check in was a breeze!! The employees were so nice and so
accommodating. They put us in a great room on the 17th floor(1705) with a view
of ground zero. To my surprise It was not that noisy at all in the room! The
windows and door are solid. The room had one area for the bed and nightstand and
you walk towards the back of the room into a sitting area with a desk and pull
out couch! There is a door you can open but there is no balcony or anything.
When I opened the door then I can hear the noise! But what joyful noise it was..
People hard at work rebuilding a beautiful sacred site.
The bathroom was a decent size. The room was MODERN AND CLEAN!!! I will say the
one downfall is that it's a green hotel (which is great) BUT the air
conditioner goes off when you leave the room and only turns back on when you
come back in the room.. SO after being in the NYC heat all day we came back to a
warm room. But once inside for a little it cools down:)
We ate at the restaurant on the 20th floor it too had a great view.. Great
service good prices. I honestly cannot find a bad thing to say about this hotel.
The hotel is not in the " middle of all the action", that's true... but you take the
train at Rector street and it takes you to any stop you want along the way in a matter of minutes!! The hotel is close to Battery Park which is where the ferry's for the Statue of Liberty are so that's great:) Another perk is in the hallways they have a chilled water machine with bottles that you can take and fill up with water! Bottled water for free:)
Once again sorry for babbling but I WILL be back and stay here EVERY TIME I COME
BACK TO NYC!! THANK YOU WORLD CENTER HOTEL!!
