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,...

Traveling for a business meeting, I booked the W as it is wishing walking distance of Wall Street. Prior to my arrival, I received a warm email from Casey welcoming me to the hotel and asking if I had any special request. That set the tone for the rest of my stay. Check in/check out was efficient and professional and...

My husband and I visited this location friday night . Was impressed by the decor and the vibe of the bar. The host at the check-in desk was very polite and accommodating.

We stayed 1 night at the W Downtown and everything met or exceeded expectations. The hotel and room itself were beautiful and the view of the 911 memorial from our room was an unexpected treat.

I'd booked the room about a week before I checked in. Although I live quite close to the hotel, I knew I was going to have a crazy week at work, and figured I'd treat myself to a nice room, and good room service to kick off a relaxing weekend. When I made the reservation on the SPG site, I...

Stayed here for a week in November. My room faced the Freedom tower which provides for amazing views at all times of the day. If you're working in the financial district, the location is great. If you're here for leisure, the area is not the most vibrant at night and few fun restaurants and bars in the neighbourhood. Subway is...

Have stayed at this property multiple times and always had top-notch experiences! Its location within the city is extremely convenient and we had a very easy time getting from the hotel to all other areas that we wanted to visit. The staff is great and very knowledgeable about the area. The property itself is very trendy and upscale.

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.
