The W Hotel Downtown is a great hotel in a fantastic location- both for business and tourism. The views from the room (Ultra Cool I believe) are truly breathtaking, overlooking the 9/11 memorial and WTC. The rooms are a bit dated and the corridors seem to be from a 70’s Sheraton, but hey, the views make up for that. In...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 February 2017

Stayed here for the final leg of a trip to the states. The hotel is in an excellent location, opposite the new World Trade Centre, in the heart of the financial district. The hotel is a bit of a distance to the metro. As we arrived at Penn Station from Philly, we called an Uber to take us to the...

I had a great stay at the W Hotel Downtown recently. I was there the weekend of May 5 to 8. Our room overlooked the 911 Memorial and was close to the Staten Island Ferry, Battery Park and Wall Street. The hotel appeared to be fairly new. The room was very clean and well appointed. My only complaint at night...

I went for a single night work stay. The hotel is convenient to all of the downtown offices. As a person who travels a lot for work, I try to stay fit and hotel gyms are important. The gym is solid - it has punching bags, good mats. Small-ish, but most people at the W go for the fun. This...

The W downtown was a fabulous hotel to stay at for the BikeNYC 5 Boro Ride. Amazing staff, all the way from the bellman to the managers. Very accommodating and helpful and truly seemed to enjoy what they were doing! Rooms were clean and comfy. Great views of the Freedom Tower. They had a coffee bar and breakfast/treat station for...

We stayed here for the 5 Boro Bike Tour and were really happy here. We stayed here a few years back and it wasn't as good as it is now. The staff is simply incredible. The check in was perfect. The valet staff and bell staff were incredibly accommodating and nice. We have stayed at other hotels for the Tour...

We've just spent two weeks travelling along the east coast and the, W Downtown was definitely the best hotel we stayed at. We were in 2208, a corner room with stunning views of the freedom tower and surrounding areas. The hotel was great, view's were amazing, yet it was the staff, particularly JaVonn that made this hotel stand out. Nothing...

My second time returning to the W Downtown after a year, and it's was like visiting family. My stay began with a warm welcome from Tracey at the front desk, who is just a fantastic lady, and who even remembered me from my last visit. Combined with an overall expert staff, and warm morning greetings from Erik at the front...

This hotel is in a great location if you are primarily interested in checking out the WTC area or are working in the Financial District. The rooms are very small, which I guess should be expected in NYC. The entrance to the hotel is awkward with no street level lobby and an elevator that takes you up to a very...

I was so happy to be upgraded to my two bed queen room because I would hate to know how small my room would have been without he upgrade. This room actually had a great view of the 9/11 Memorial. No coffee maker in the room but I am sure you can ask for one - Starwood Hotels never fail...

Neighbourhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
