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
The location is spot on. Right next to World Trade Center, Oculus and numerous subway stations. The day we arrived we walked out of E train and the hotel was just right in front of us. The staff were friendly and helpful. The only problem with this hotel is the room. It's so old and out of date. Very poor sound isolation. TV resolution not even 720p. No power outlet on or near either night stand. Felt like we were living in a Hilton room 15 years ago.

Hotel staff was very helpful. It was good to receive a text from a real person prior to check in asking if there was any way they could be of service before check in. An issue that could have been a time consuming problem at check in was resolved by Nikki even before we arrived at the hotel. This was a wonderful help. Concierge staff was very helpful providing detailed information on several occasions. Bell staff also very good.
