"Awesome hotel, 2 min from NYSE, off Wall street. "
Enjoyed our stay, the room was nice, bright and clean. We had the suite with kitchenette on the 13th floor. Nice view! The room has high ceiling and 6 big windows, which made it very nice and bright. The complimentary coffee (good coffee selection), water and refreshments in the living room downstairs it's a bonus as well.
"Comfortable hotel in a quiet part of town w/ ameni"
This is a comfortable hotel in a quiet part of town with many amenities including free desktop computers and a fancy coffee machine, as well as daily local papers and copies of Time Out New York (an indispensable weekly event guide).
This hotel is great. We arrived early and they found us a room and let us check in early.
The informal check-in experience via a pad while having a coffee in the lobby was good.
The rooms are a good size with large walk-in showers. We founfd the bed comforatble, althouh others have commented on the beds being firm. There is a nice touch that the snacks and non-alcoholics drinks in the room are free and replaced daily. These little extras make the Andaz well worth a visit. The front desk staff were all helpful and friendly which also added to our stay. We walked to battery Park and the 9/11 memorial from the hotel, it is a good base to see the sights of lower manhattan.
The hotel was great. It's a small boutique hotel that is very nice, but I'm not sure I would call it fancy. I got a suite which was very unexpected and appreciated. It was very spacious, had free wifi and even had a full kitchen. Bed and bathroom were very clean and all was comfortable. I will look to stay here again...especially if I'm returning with family members. An unexpected benefit...TKTS is just a block and a half away for easy broadway ticket purchases, if your meeting end early.
Very comfortable bed and pillows (and my guy is very picky). Wild, original place -- angular cabinets in room, skinny, futuristic table lights; nice shower with glass door instead of a skunky curtain; conveniently located (for us) in the Financial District. Our room overlooked the new World Trade Center and 9-11 Museum, and the view was stunning. Very accommodating and nice staff. New language is a kick, too..."take the lift"; "Wired" for Business Center; "Fit" for gym.
Downsides: Walls are thin -- we heard a party of women partying at the top of their lungs at 4:30AM; had to change rooms for our final night (surrounded, this time, by zillions of windows of apartments/condos, less stunning and less private). Check-in is on the 5th floor (nice ceiling & floor!); you have to get off there and then take another elevator...uh "lift" to your actual floor room. A little inconvenient.
All in all, recommended.
Pocket Guide: New York Wall Street - Financial District Hotels
Wall Street comes to life before dawn as traders rush to Lower Manhattan to make and break deals. But finance is just one aspect of Lower Manhattan, where colonial churches stand next to skyscrapers. Within the district, rebuilding continues at Ground Zero. At Battery Park, ferries depart for Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty, America’s beacon of freedom.
