Design-conscious, Financial District outpost with extraordinarily comfortable beds and a business-friendly location
This limestone and glass hybrid in the heart of Manhattan's Financial District is, expectedly, home to plenty of Wall Street denizens, so it’s got lots of conveniences: a well-equipped gym, work spaces in the rooms, and a lounge with an outdoor terrace that’s perfect for getting some fresh air without having to hit the streets. The chic fifth-floor bar has an eye-catching ceiling installation made from thousands of LED lights that reflect off the black granite floors; the cool atmosphere and open-air seating draw a crowd, especially on weekends when DJs spin. The rooms are efficiently designed, with almost no moveable furniture, white walls, and the occasional pop of color, while the bathrooms, as in all W hotels, are fully stocked with Bliss products, rainforest showers, and plush bathrobes. Not to mention those views of the shiny new 1 World Trade Center, which are spectacular.
In the Area
In a neighborhood more thronged with businesspeople than tourists, the W is a good choice for anyone headed to Wall Street, the Stock Exchange, or 1 World Trade Center—though sightseers who hate to be surrounded by other tourists will also find this a handy base. Battery Park, with 25 acres of greenery, bike paths, and river views, is a half-mile stroll south—head there for views of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, as well as ferry access to both. The area is heavy with chain restaurants and upscale dining establishments that cater to busy/networking finance workers, but a half-mile stroll south brings you to The Dead Rabbit, whose standout cocktails and gussied-up pub grub have earned it the coveted title of "World's Best Bar" for consecutive years. Access to the rest of Manhattan couldn’t be easier; there are a dozen subways stops within ten minutes’ walk.
