As a first time visitor to New York we were looking for something special, and found it. A view over the Hudson River and the Statue of Liberty. Even a telescope in the room. The hotel is opposite Staton Island Ferry terminal and the subway station.
New York is such a large City that it is difficult to be convenient for all of the sites but transport is easy. On the first day we used a taxi to Times Square but subsequently found the subway cheaper and faster. We didn't know what to expect on the subway but found it easy to use, and safe.
Ground Zero and Wall Street are within an easy walking distance of the hotel and the hop-on/hop-off sightseeing bus passes very close to the hotel.
The hotel staff are excellent, friendly and smartly dressed and can't do enough to be helpful.
Eating and drinking in the hotel is very expensive, and even greater after the tax and tips, but there are reasonable restaurants nearby.
I would highly recommend this hotel subject to a reasonable rate on the room.
