Overview

The only five-star hotel in lower Manhattan—with stellar views of the Statue of Liberty

The Lowdown

This polished 298 room property has a downtown location—it’s near Wall Street and Battery Park—plus uptown perks like the luxury spa treatments and 24-hour fitness center. 2West, its award-winning restaurant, proffers stunning views, an extensive wine list, and local-luxe cuisine including Brooklyn Lager French Onion Soup. The rooms have 400-thread count Frette sheets and a bath butler to help you fill the tub after a day spent pounding the city’s pavements.

In the Area

Feeling inspired by the views? Travel to the Statue of Liberty by boat and take in the Ellis Island Immigration Museum. Also within walking distance of the hotel are the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian, the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, the Museum of Jewish Heritage, the Skyscraper Museum, and Wall Street. And if you actually find yourself with time to see the rest of the city, Tribeca is a short walk away while hotel shuttles also ferry guests to Midtown.

More than Just a great place to stay Mohamed and the Wagner Hotel are the Gold Seal of Service

New York City is not limited to beauty and service when it comes to hospitality. As the travel season is upon us I am sure many are planning the next NYC trip and looking for the perfect hotel. With so many options I will share why the WAGNER is my top pick! The staff is stellar. During my families visit we were to arrive after check in the staff was accommodating and welcoming during our 3am arrival. We were greeted with warm faces and professionalism that was bar none! The room was impeccable, spacious and well appropriated, the spa tub and shower perfect for relaxing and the location could not have been better. Capturing the NYC essence, we were minutes away from everything! Wall Street, World Trade Center, Soho, the pier, Statue of Liberty, museums, food, shopping, neighborhoods with a vibe, you name it we were there in minutes. By Uber walking or using a hotel offered bike you can see it all.

If you not convinced this is the perfect place to stay then let me share a quick story...On day two of my family stay I fell ill. After online consultations, remedies and trying to wait thing out I realized I was experiencing a full on medical emergency. My sister called the front desk and on the other end of the phone was a calm, resourceful, well equipped staffer Mohamed Katiq.

Mohamed is the epitome of what any team should hope to have as part of their staff. He is the Gold well Platinum standard! He embodies the perfect cross sector of professionalism and empathy. With his quick thinking, medical professionals were onsite with on minutes. EMT, Police, hotel staffer were both calming and quick to action. Following the resolve of my health scare and returning to the hotel we were treated like family. The lovely house keeping staff even provided extra ginger for tea!

Mohamed and the Wagner Hotel has exceeded my expectations. I can not say enough about this team. I have already booked my next stay!

If your in the New York area and want to be assured that the hotel staff is well prepared for any situation, and you are treated as a valued guest I recommend the Wagner as Mohamed and team provide first class service and are truly New York’s finest.

Great choice

Spent four nights here with family last week, the hotel is in a quiet yet convenient spot, rooms are large and well appointed (especially by Manhattan standards) and staff were a pleasure to deal with.

Wonderful former Ritz Carlton hotel. Reminds me of the Eau near Palm Beach. Extra effort from when you walk in the front door. Richard at the front desk was super-efficient and kind. Excellent restaurant off the lobby. Three color carrots, ricotta and kale was creative and delicious. Clean, luxurious and well-run refuge from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan. Even if you do not get the precious rooms with the views of the statue of liberty, you will love this hotel.
