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.

9-11 Memorial

We chose this hotel because of the proximity to the 9-11 Memorial. The room did overlook the Memorial however, the room was small. There was about a foot of space between the wall and the right side of the bed. There needed to be more space. The night we arrived, the TV didn't work. Someone was sent to look at it and when we returned from dinner it still didn't work. The night staff said it wasn't his problem, it was Time-Warner and we hence had no TV until the morning. We also asked for the stopper to be fix so my husband's contacts wouldn't be lost down the drain but this wasn't done. Our stay was average. I would recommend to another traveler and tell them about our experience.

Good price on Weekends

Good deal during the weekend. Perfect location, away from all the touristic and busy mid manhattan. Perfect to explore tribeca, soho, and the riverside. The staff was very friendly, they will storage your luggage for the day if you need to take a late flight.

Great Stay

We had a wonderful stay at the World Center Hotel. The room was very comfortable and efficiently laid out. Plenty or room for my wife and I to move around. Nice decor with a european feel. The bathroom was nice, bright and well laid out. The staff was nice and helpful. Great view of the 911 memorial and freedom tower from the bar / restaurant on the top floor. I liked the location; not in the middle of shopping and shows but a short walk to many subway lines that will take you wherever you want to go. Great value for the price. I will stay there again.

Good Quality and Good Price

We stayed multiple nights and had a very good experience. The staff is great and the room (although small - as are most well priced hotels in NYC) was very adequate.

Great Place in the financial district

Very nice, new hotel. Some rooms have fantastic views of the new Trade Center towers & the 9/11 memorial. Rooms are small, but not cramped. It is not the most convenient to the subway at the moment (summer '13) because of construction at several local MTA stations (this is why 4 and not 5 stars). It is, however, very convenient to the lower PATH station if you fly into Newark.

Good price, excelent location and very nice room

The amenities are all very nice, clean and new. I loved the place, right above the "9/11 Memorial". It´s easy to walk around and near from the Wall St, Subways and other places. Me and my boyfriend went to NY to spend a weekend, and inspite of the lack of time, we could enjoy everything that NY has to offer.

Great get-a-way

Fabulous location for lower Manhattan. Plenty of interesting historical sights. If you are interested in progress of the World Trade Center you are steps away. Great spot for full access to the Fulton subway station which can get you to almost anywhere in Manhattan.
