There is nothing particularly special about this hotel, but it was a pleasant stay, especially at a nightly rate< $200. The location is great, close walking distance to downtown sights, with close proximity to a few subway stations for trains to uptown and Brooklyn. The front desk staff were also helpful. The hotel room was a bit dated, but did not find it too small ( for NYC) but the lifts can be a tight fit, and the halls are narrow, if this matters to you. I had a high (41st)floor room at the back with a semi view of the East Rivers. I did not have to wait long for the lift, likely due to being on a high floor. The only issue I had was not getting hot water in the shower, but it was just once, early on the morning I was checking out so was not a big problem for me.
"Not enough Elevators, AC didn't work properly,"
Room was small. We had long waits for the elevators every time. The AC in our room was not working right, maintenance had to come work on it every day that we were there. Never really got fixed so we were either freezing cold or sweating hot. On the Positive side, we a had a beautiful view of the One World building and were close to transportation options. Bell men were all Very friendly and helpful. If we didn't have such a bad experience with the comfort of our room I would have been able to give 4 stars.
"Average hotel that tries hard; great location in the financial district"
If your business takes you to very end of Manhattan in the financial and legal center, you might want to consider the DoubleTree by Hilton on Stone Street in NYC. It has fine help and they try hard but the rooms are average and the Antinori Bar/Restaurant is OK. Plenty of other restaurants around the area that are most likely better. So, this hotel is certainly a safe place and will provide a room for you but just not very special or differentiated in a City that invented the work "differentiated."
"Nice hotel in a great location"
Enjoyable stay in a nice, clean hotel. Room was a good size, with all the ammenities and was cleaned thoroughly on a daily basis. The bed was huge & extremely comfortable. Facilities in the room are just perfect. Hotel is located in a great area, close to several subway stations so access to everywhere is easy. Staff were very helpful & friendly. We stayed on the 26th floor - we did have to wait for the elevators but for no more than 5 minutes each time & we could berely hear the construction on the building across the road. We did have a few broken objects in the room, e.g. Pull for curtain, heater blowing only cold air (which was fixed during our stay), heater cover, which were unexpected but did not effect our stay. We stayed for 7 nights, all but 1 night was peacefully quiet. We had a door to an adjoining room, for 1 night the guests in that room were inappropriately noisy, luckily it was just for 1 night. Overall a great stay & would consider staying here again should we return to New York.
This is a old Hilton hotel, the rooms are small, the elevators are sooooo slow. The staff is pleasant, and they attempt to be helpful. What you pay for what you get is really out of sync. Did I say how small this room is''''
