Awesome!

I can't say enough positive about this hotel. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. The rooms were well-appointed and spotlessly clean. We reserved a room and a suite and were pleased to find them right next to each other. The view from the restaurant is sobering, but beautiful. There was no issue with construction noise. We found it to be very quiet. The only thing negative I can say about this hotel, which is reflected in the location rating, is that it is hard to get there by car. I would recommend if you are driving, find a place to park and walk to the hotel. It is easy to get there on foot. Aside from that, we liked the location. It is a short walk to the subway station, and to many restaurants and bars. All in all, it was a great stay, and we hope to return. I would highly recommend this hotel.

excellent stay

The hotel staff was helpful and pleasant. The view from my room was amazing. The location allowed for a quick ride on the subway to Time Square. This is my second time staying at this hotel and I will come back again.

Christmastime in NYC

We booked one Saturday night to see Christmastime sights in NYC. We arrived midday and were allowed to check in and were also upgraded to a room with a beautiful view of the 9/11 Memorial. The room and bathroom were both clean. The shower stall was small and had a fabric curtain, but otherwise the space was wonderful. After a long day of trekking around the city in the freezing rain, we came home and had drinks in the 20th floor restaurant. The service was slow, but the view was beautiful. Overall, very reasonably priced. We will definitely stay here again.

Average hotel

Worth it if u pay less than 300. Has an amazing view. However room is very small which is expected in NYC. You also have to extra 37 bucks for self parking

Family time

The valet parking was the best part. You could take your car in and out and not worry about getting into a parking lot and not having your car with you. We had a balcony and you had views of the trade center and reflecting pools. It was great. The room size was bigger than I thought. The food at the restaurant was terrific. Bathroom could have been more updated but was acceptable. All together it was a pretty good experience.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Being a New Yorker and having gone through September 11, 2001 it was wonderful to be able to walk across the street and see how ground zero has been transformed.
