Fodor's Review

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 where you can find a unique mix of Wall Street bankers, European tourists, and downtown hipsters shaking it on the black granite dance floor.

Overlooking Ground Zero

What a great place to stay for the sights of Lower Manhatten and especially Ground Zero and the Memorial! We were able to witness all thye activity right from our room. The view was especially impressive at dusk. The service at the hotel was excellent. The rooms were great. And of course, we loved the view!
