My wife had been to NYC before but this was my first trip. We wanted to see everything we could but knew that staying in Times Square or Midtown would be too loud and busy for us. We picked the W-Downtown for it's proximity to the 911 Memorial and the Statue of Liberty. When we first decided to go to...

This W is an awesome location, although very south in the downtown manhattan (financial district), it is next to the 1 subway which makes it very easy to go anywhere. Inside is very W, hip and cool. Staff is very happy to work there, smile, and ready to help in each corner and super service oriented! We had an awesome...

A late booking, hotel is good , great bar, and a real buzz about the place, we just got a pretty poor room, up in a attic , small , with a good bed, did not quiet have the W feel, but the rest was very good, just pay a bit more than a standard room

Well designed, great cool atmosphere starting at the lobby welcoming through the corridors and room. The spectacular room is spectacular as it is relatively big, very comfort and have beautiful views to ground zero. Service by the staff was efficient when required, but not more than that. Public transportation to everywhere in Manhattan is great - all trains are available...

Returned to room after a long day only to find the weirdest scene in the lobby. A dj and drummer were set up in front of the elevator and the weird cast of characters from what looked like a Fatboy Slim video were dancing like highly choreographed dancers who have never danced before. The cast includes a 2 year old...

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.
