Sexy hotel. The lobby is gorgeous with a great outdoor patio. Staff was great and patient. But if you need a taxi do not depend on the staff outside. They just wave their hand up when I taxi drives by down the street. You are better off just walking to the corner if you are in a rush. So basically...

This hotel takes the cake on trendy! From the elevators to the ceilings, it is all decked out in trendy decor. You have to take two different elevators to access the hotel rooms, which was a bit odd and frustrating if your hands were full. Location is amazing - right next to the subway and 9/11 memorials. Our room was...

For the business person who has meetings in lower Manhattan this is a perfect spot, if you're staying in Manhattan for the weekend, not such good spot. The hotel itself is a very typical W hotel. The staff are average, but really not that great. The rooms are tiny, the bathrooms are really small. The bed is comfortable, the room...

Stayed one night at this hotel for a conference at nearby City Hall. View of WTC site is amazing, room was nice and average size for NYC standards. Great customer service throughout. The lobby is fun and futuristic, although rather nightclubby, primarily designed to be a nighttime feature with LED lighting, etc. A great hotel if you need to be...

We stayed here recently for a wedding and thought it was great. I can honestly say that this was the most comfortable bed that I've ever slept in.

The view from my room looking at the WTC Site was awesome. If you can get a north facing room. The Staff including Casey and Teela were responsive and helpful. FYI there is a Subway stop on Rector St about a block down around the corner. If you plan a stay downtown I would recommend staying here !!

You feel a lot different in this hotel, full of energy with music playing everywhere, in the lobby,lift. Rooms are nice, but little compact, which gets compensated with its terrific location right in front of WTC.
