We got a great price on a hotel in the Financial District because it was the weekend. This is a great location for exploring the southern tip of Manhattan. It is close to the World Trade Center (and the Century 21 store across the street from the memorial) and the Seaport, Staten Island Ferry and within walking distance of China Town.
The hotel staff were very helpful and accommodating. There is a wine bar and restaurant that we didn't visit but it was very busy. The room was large and the bed was very comfortable. the bathroom is well appointed. It felt luxurious.There is free WiFi in the lobby.
We took advantage of the hotel bikes (one speed, not great but adequate) and explored the bike paths along the water. There are Citi Bike stands throughout as an alternative. We rode across the Brooklyn Bridge (a great view but very busy on Sunday with pedestrians). There are some Citi Bike stands on the Brooklyn side.More
