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.
How to Get There
Myself and my new husband have just returned from our honeymoon in New York. We stayed at the Wagner because of its 5 star status and it didn’t disappoint! We prefer not to stay right in mid-town. There’s subway stations only a few minutes away, we mostly used the 1 train but other lines can be reached within minutes at Bowling Green and Rector Street. Battery Park is such a lovely location to stay in because it’s slightly more quiet than Times Square area (though there’s still lots of tourists around heading off to the Statue of Liberty. The wagner’s Staff are all lovely and there’s doormen and baggage staff always around as well as very friendly reception staff. The lobby is beautiful and smells amazing! We got upgraded to the Statue of Liberty view room on the 7th floor when I mentioned it was our honeymoon. What a gorgeous room, massive bed with the comfiest mattress and pillows, a big bathroom with the most amazing bath. The maid made our bed and replaced our water a few times a day! They also gave us a later check out free of charge, they were very laid back.
We will definitely be staying here again, it’s the best hotel I’ve experienced in all of my travels :)
We booked the Wagner Hotel via booking, with no prior recommendations, and we felt very lucky the minute we got to the hotel.
Because we were a family of 5(2 adults, 3 children, ages 15,12 and 9) we asked for 2 rooms one with 3 beds. Although there was a misunderstanding, probably because of booking.com, the children’s room had only 2 beds. With in a minute, the manager of the reception (I’m sorry I can’t recall the name-:)), upgrade their room to a huge suite that was phenomenal. Our room was amazing too of course. Everything was clean, the bed were super comfortable and the view was unique with a telescope viewing the Statue of Liberty and Alice island. We ate 3 times at the restaurant a breakfast and dinner which was really good for NYC standard.
My wife, spends a week in NYC every month and no doubt this is going to be her new favorite place when she has to be near the office in downtown New York.
The Wagner Hotel didn’t miss a beat in it’s transition from being a Ritz-Carlton property. The location is great, close to museums, the Statue of Liberty, Wall Street and right on Battery Park.
The staff was amazing and very accommodating during multiple stays. Particular thanks to Mohamed, who made everything perfect during my stay, particularly when my family visited for a long weekend!
