The W New York Downtown

123 Washington St., at Albany St., New York, New York, 10006, USA

In the heart of the Financial District, this W outpost juxtaposes the gritty feel of the Financial District with sleek surfaces. The glassy black-box entrance abandons the typical notion of "hotel welcome" and visitors must take the elevator up to the fifth floor to reach the front desk. Guest rooms have a minimalist appeal, and all of the Italian-crafted furniture has been custom built into the walls—the only movable piece of furniture is the chair. The Living Room bar and tapas area hosts live DJ events that attract a unique mix of Wall Street bankers, European tourists, and downtown hipsters shaking it on the black granite dance floor.
