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.

Great stay at The Wagner
carmenpell

We enjoyed our stay at the Wagner and especially because of Mohamed at the front desk! He was a fantastic representative of great service. He recommended restaurants and things to do that were spot on. We can't say enough about him! The entire staff was wonderful from the bellmen, the restaurant servers and housekeeping. We loved the location as it was something different that we usually do in NY. We would definetly stay here again.

I highly recommend The Wagner at the Battery

This was my second stay at The Wagner and the service continues to be first class. My lovely quiet room with a view of the Statue of Liberty was perfect for the 2 night stay and I look forward to returning in the future.

Good value and location but there is a huge difference in the rooms

This was my first stay in the Wagner. I was on a business trip with colleagues and needed to stay in Lower Manhattan. My usual choice (the Four Seasons) was way out of the corporate budget, so I scouted around for a high quality hotel at a far lower price. I remembered there was a Ritz Carlton at the Battery and discovered the name had changed to the Wagner. I would recommend the Wagner as a good and comfortable hotel in a great location, but definitely book a room with a view - the rooms that do not overlook the water are VERY, VERY dark. I managed to move a colleague's room immediately and I managed to swap suites the next day - and I would urge guests not to bank on getting an upgrade to a view but pay the difference as the rooms with a view will make a massive difference to your stay. The views are stunning over the water onto the Statue of Liberty and beyond!

I ate breakfast each day which was fine and service was obliging everywhere.
For the money paid, this is a very good option in Lower Manhattan.
Also, it's an excellent location for tourists as well as business people. We stayed the weekend for some R&R and managed to walk to so many places - with many excellent restaurants nearby too.
