The sleek luxury of Wall Street is evident in the hotel’s minimalist design, the lobby’s large steel staircase and the upscale restaurant, Dina Rata. But the high-end glamour is mixed with artistic touches that are nods to the past, from the Prohibition-era cocktails to the Thomas Hardy quotes emblazoned on the guestroom walls. Everything is done with understated class and the best materials, from leather to marble to chrome. The overall effect is one of a kind and, surprisingly, homey.
Bed & Bath
With super high 11-foot ceilings, locally crafted metal art pieces and a bright palette of white, bleached wood, camel and lavender, the 253 rooms feel like urban lofts. Perks include 42-inch flat-screens, Geneva sound systems and pillowy Simmons mattresses with 300-thread-count sheets. Futuristic bathrooms have black tiling, chrome fixtures and glass pedestal sinks. Walk-in showers with Beekman 1802 products come standard in all rooms, but upgrade to a Large King Room for a deep soaking tub with glass walls that peek into the bedroom.
Grab a pre-dinner drink at the beer garden, where guests can taste a selection of German brews. The tony locavore Dina Rata restaurant helps you get up close and personal with your food, first by procuring the ingredients from the Hudson Valley, and second by preparing it right next to you in open kitchens stationed throughout the dining room. Enjoy a glass of vino with the American bistro cuisine like the salmon with beets and shiitake mushrooms. Work off the indulgence in the 24-hour gym or opt for a spa treatment, including short 15-minute massages for busy business types.
In the Area
The New York Stock Exchange no longer offers tours, due to security concerns, but you can visit that other nearby temple of commerce, Century 21, a hectic shopping mecca where you’ll battle locals for designer clothing at up to 65 percent off retail. Get a history lesson by taking a 10-minute stroll through the Financial District to Battery Park, a historic landmark that overlooks the harbor and served as one of the first immigrant depots in America. Pick up the Statue of Liberty ferry here for $12 or pay your respects at the National September 11 Memorial. Take a 20-minute stroll over to Chinatown for a weekend dim sum extravaganza or a 25-minute jaunt to Little Italy and SoHo.
How to Get There
Very nice room, location, service and food. Thurs-Sat stay with biz vibe during the week and more relaxed on Saturday. I would recommend this hotel at 75 Wall St. NYC to others. There was plenty of activities nearby and the staff was welcoming and happy to help.
The Andaz is a great place to stay if you need to be near Wall St. Very friendly and helpful staff, great location and big rooms with the right amenities. The feel is very European in terms of the decor (though European rooms are smaller). Great shower, lots of USB outlets, well stocked fridge and all of the niceties you would expect. The cookies in the lobby are a nice bonus, though maybe not for my waistline! This is now my go-to place.
Room did not have working air, had to be moved. They acted like it was a big inconvenience to them to re-make room for another guest (even though the air was not working and could not be fixed until the following day). I did not sense a genuine concern. The beds were comfy. The food and drinks were just OK and expensive
