A very comfortable hotel which is 5 minutes walk from the 9/11 memorial plaza and museum. Also very close to subway station.. Was ideal for visiting the memorial and for getting uptown with subway so near. A few bars and restaurants in the local area. Quiet at night but some people may prefer more buzz as its New York City.

The view from the spectacular room, is well worth it, let alone the over ambience of this W, both in the lobby and in your room. The 5th Floor deck is also a great hangout spot, whether it's with a cup of coffee at sunrise or a cocktail at sunset.
And that location is its only issue , because it is Manhattan it is eye wateringly expensive, one night with breakfast best part of $600, but then the competition would likely cost the same.
Apart from price location is stunning - it is not quite on Wall St its on Water St but it's close enough. Decorating is very "on trend" and very comfortable. If you are looking to stay downtown this is about as good as you're going to get.
Although we only stayed one night we found the location ideal for the 9/11 Museum (5 minutes' walk from the hotel). There is also an interesting food hall across the road from the museum providing a variety of facilities. Battery Park and the Liberty Island ferry are about half an hour's walk along the banks of the Charles River. Although we didn't have time for the park or the ferry the walk itself is very pleasant.
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.
