hotel was very nice and close to the 9/11 museum. I did notice in the hotel guest gathering/lobby area is geared to the business traveler by have more peaks for the guests on weekdays and not so much if any on the weekends.
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.
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.
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.
