This hotel has an amazing view of the new World Trade Center building and is located between the financial district and battery park. It's a great location near a lot of subways so you can virtually get anywhere in the city. The bar area is really cool and there's a free photo booth in the lobby which is really fun....

Stayed here with last minute booking and was skeptical about it but when I got to the hotel I could already tell the view was going to be amazing - I chose not to valet my car as the garage is right behind the hotel and you gotta tell them you are staying at the W they will give you...

I know this might seem strange but I always travel with my favorite brand of Pop-Tarts, kind of a morning ritual. I requested someone to toast for me, and Michelle the third shift manager went out of her way to take care of this strange request both days I was there. Thank you Michelle! As a suggestion, the morning coffee...

Visiting New York City during my spring break. I decided to book the W hotel because my girlfriend wanted to see the WTC memorial (Freedom Tower and Ground Zero) so why not right?

We stayed only one night at the W and found the hotel to be perfectly adequate. The rooms were small but well-designed and thoughtfully appointed. Some of the rooms have a fantastic view of the new World Trade Center Building. The Front desk and Lobby is on the fifth floor, with very modern and artistic decor. If you are interested...

The view was incredible. The value was right on for the hotel and area. The outdoor terrace bar is a lot of fun. The suites are very W with beautiful bathrooms.

Quick getaway in Manhattan (lower Manhattan to be specific). The location is immediately south of the WTC site and memorial, and within walking distance of several subway lines. (My one and only complaint is that the very closest station, Rector Street on the 1 line was closed due to construction - certainly not the hotels problem, so it's always a...

Everything was great except for the fact that I had to pay 6 dollars to use the internet for 15 minutes. Charging for internet usage in this day and age at a hotel is antiquated and frustrating. 6 dollars? Seriously? Also...why is one bottle of water in the room free and the other one costs 7 dollars ? 2 eggs,...

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.
