This swanky Financial District behemoth, which holds the brave distinction of being the first hotel to re-open post 9/11 (following a top-to-toe 31-million dollar reno) may brim with business traveler-friendly perks—six meeting rooms, free weekday newspapers, large in-room desks, onsite FedEx services—but tourists are just as drawn to the tony 569-room tower for prime access to Manhattan’s downtown renaissance, which includes a hotbed of cultural attractions that include the Santiago Calatrava-designed Oculus and 9/11 Museum and Memorial. Another draw: some of the city’s largest guest rooms, with pillow-top beds and calming, earth-toned interiors that exude a warm and residential vibe—not an easy task to accomplish in this frenetic city. Bonus points for St. Paul’s Chapel views from the indoor pool and Liquid Assets, the laid-back lobby bar, which serves expertly mixed martinis and complimentary gourmet bar snacks—exceedingly rare in Manhattan—in a mingle-friendly, velvet-clad lounge space.
In the Area
You’re just six subway stops from the neon glory of Times Square, though there’s plenty to do right in the Financial District: visit the One World Observatory for an inimitable view, catch a glimpse of sculptor Arturo Di Modica’s “Fearless Girl,” who squares off with the iconic “Charging Bull” in front of the New York Stock Exchange; take a spin on the dreamy SeaGlass Carousel, the latest addition to Battery Park; or snag a table at one of the many pop-up restaurants sprouting in the Seaport District (formerly South Street Seaport), where heavyweights like Hugh Acheson, Dale Talde, and Alon Shaya hold brief culinary takeovers.
How to Get There
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Millennium Hilton. The staff was very kind and welcoming. The moment we walked into our corner room, we were amazed at the view of both the city and the river. The room was extremely clean, modern, and spacious. I look forward to staying here again,
Our first trip to New York for my wife's 40th.
Picked this hotel based on location. Was very pleased with the hotel, very clean, great view from the room and friendly staff. Looking forward to going back.
I love this hotel because the views are awesome. Stayed in the luxury suite with an upgrade with my diamond status. Absolutely great views over the city looking north. Room was large with separate living room and two bathrooms. However I have to say I think this place needs a little freshing up. The room was dated and you could see the wear and tear on the furniture and walls. Service is always great.
Stayed there for one night. We had a suite so the room was very spacious. Clean room, very friendly staff. Lots of shopping around and easy to get Ubers or Taxis if you need to go elsewhere. Right across from World Trade Centre. It's basically the perfect location if you're in NY for business.
The hotel has not been updated for a while and it's dated and it shows however much better than most hotels in NY. Definitely need more plugs to be able to charge your devices.
The hotel is ideal if you just need a break. You can't beat the location it's just accross the street from everything at the World Trade Center. The hotel rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable with great views.The only problem is it's meager lobby and public areas.
