This hotel has a nice downtown location and if you are lucky you can get a great view of the new Freedom tower. It has free morning coffee. The rooms are small and the bathrooms are very poorly laid out. You get soaked by cold water when you into the shower to turn it on. We asked for subway information...

This hotel is very conveniently located in front of the former World Trade Center site, and is also close to the Brooklyn bridge and convenient to West Village and Chinatown. Room is minimalist - well, what're you expecting from this trendy and chic hotel chain? It is comfortable for two people, with a working table and an armchair plastered to...

We have gone to this hotel now three times. They always have great service. We love the downtown location. The view of the WTC and Freedom Tower from most rooms and from the really great bar at the check-in level is just awesome. Rooms are big on New York standards. It's worth getting the Cool Corner Room. All the great...

I'm stayed at a number of NYC hotels, and this one is great!

Neighbourhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
