“Lovely”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012

We stayed one night got three terrace rooms on the 6th floor, we had an excellent time, great
neighborhood, walked to New Twin Towers, to see the construction, had dinner right around the corner at Mark Joseph Steakhouse (wonderful) and right at South Street seaport, rooms very very clean, People at front desk, very helpful, they even arranged for a car to take us to airport,
Breakfast, good, filing and included in price, I would go back here in a New York minute,
see the view of the Brooklyn Bridge at night in one of the terrace rooms, its a site to behold!
The neighbor hood is quaint, and there is some construction going on that will make a nice little
park, can't wait to see it finished.

Room Tip: The view from the terrace rooms are worth the extra price,

What an absolutely wonderful place to stay in New York City! It was beautifully decorated as well as being very clean. It was also in a pretty decent neighborhood. Right down by the water. The room actually had a view of the Brooklyn Bridge. Very pretty at night to see. The hotel also offers a complimentary hot and cold breakfast. That also was pretty good.

Room Tip: Obviously, the top floors would be the best for the views. We had a room on the 4th floor.

We had a one night stay and were not disappointed. The staff was amazingly helpful, friendly and professional. When they realized we were in town for a Yankees game, they made sure we knew which train to take on the subway. We lucked into a early check-in and they graciously watched our bags post check out while we attended the game. Our rooms and the hotel in general were clean and inviting. The view of the Brooklyn Bridge from our room was postcard beautiful. The Continental breakfast was a variety of choices and tasty. The area in general puts you right at Fulton Market and the restaurant district in Lower Manhattan. What a sweet little gem. If and when we go back, we will definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: Make sure you are in a room that views the Brooklyn Bridge

Dear Rhonda M ,

Thank you very much for your review. Customer service and our location set us apart from the competition. We are glad that you have selected us and we made your trip memorable. During Yankee home games there is a ferry that goes directly from South Street Seaport to Yankee stadium. You can inquire more from our Front Desk. Thank you again for your review and making us number one on your hotel list.

Best Wishes from NYC!

We have stayed at this small hotel several times, with varied experiences. Since our first stays were when the hotel needed some upgrading, the hotel has since renovated rooms and is a comfortable hotel, nothing fancy at all, but located near shops, the waterway, restaurants, and quaint little places, walkable distance from Chinatown and Little Italy.

If you don't need anything top notch, this might work out for you. Depending upon what else is going on in town (prices go up if graduations, conventions, etc. are in the city and hotel rooms are hard to find), the prices are reasonable, rooms average size, but everything was immaculate. Rooms: nice bed linens, no evidence of any bugs, soft bed, pull-out couch/bed was comfortable, walls and carpet very clean, plenty of pillows, plenty of room for 2 people.

We asked for 2 beds, so the room was fine, but the view was nothing but the top of a buidling, fire escape, dirty dirty window, and buzzing from a fan outside 24/7, so ask not for those rooms.

Bath: new tile, granite sink, new shower head, plenty of hot water and pressure, hair dryer, tiny shampoo/conditioner, 2 soaps. Sink is located high.

Cleaning: very hospitable cleaning woman, said to take any extra towels, etc. that we needed. Because the place is small (5 stories), she is available, very accommodating.

Free breakfast: steamed scrambled eggs, sausages (I think, but not very tasty, weird texture), make your own waffles, lots of breads, fruits, oatmeal, cereals, 4 different juices. Breakfast hours 7-10, but coffee/tea available 24/7.

One computer at back of breakfast room, can use this room off hours to work on the many tables there. One printer; very easy to use. Internet access: they give you a code, but you need to log in if leave your computer for a time. Fast, no interruptions to this service (free).

Very small reception area, but free cookies in the afternoon! Very hospitable staff; quick check in and check out

Take advantage of the bars on the pier a short walk across the street, little shops along with big names (gap, guess, etc>, great pubs, luncheon places (Stellas was excellent), pizza places, ice cream shops--walkable to lots of places. Subway stops close or far, depending upon where you are going and which ones are being renovated.

Room Tip: Ask to have a room over the front door, as the view is lovely. Make sure you DO NOT get a room over...

The Best Western is a great renovation of a nineteenth century seaport building. It is perfectly situated on Peck Slip near Battery Park, South Street Seaport, the East River Ferry, and Brooklyn Bridge. My wife road in the Five Borough Bike tour and they accomidated her and dozens of other cyclists very nicely. The staff was consistently very nice and hard working. It is one of the best hotels that we have stayed at anywhere.

Room Tip: If you want a quiet room I would ask for one on the interior of the block. it will be blessedly qui...

We wanted a true Manhattan experience and the staff at this Best Western helped us get it! Frank, Dion, Tia and everyone at this Best Western were all wonderful.

We were initially considering booking at a hotel closer to Times Square but it's so touristy and crowded. The Best Western Seaport is off the beaten path and in the amazing Financial District of Manhattan. The hotel is within walking distance of many restaurants and shoppes. Stick to the side streets, though - the mini-mall on the Pier was full of sub-par chain restaurants and souvenier stores. The other stores on the sidestreets were great. This hotel is also within walking distance to the new Freedom tower and many historic churches and pubs.

We were celebrating our First Anniversary so Frank upgraded our room to one that had a terrace overlooking the Brooklyn Bridge. Breathtaking! Our 6th floor room was spotless.

They gave us recommendations on where to eat (Acqua next door is quaint and fabulous for dinner/drinks and Squires was a perfect breakfast diner!). They gave us subway instructions, booked us a car for the airport etc. They literally took care of everything upon request.

This establishment is amazing and we will definitely return again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the Brooklyn Bridge, if available!

The Seaport Inn location can't be beat. The desk staff, especially Frank who accommodated a last minute change that made a HUGE difference in our comfort, was consistantly friendly and helpful. They made great suggestions for food! The breakfast was good and a nice start to the day. The view was wonderful- I loved the Brooklyn Bridge with the Supermoon behind it! Thanks very much for helping to make our weekend so pleasant.
