This hotel is directly across from the WTC building site so the jack hammers work from 7:30am till dark every day except Sunday. The WTC project is about 4 years from completion.
The hotel believes in loud techno music and uncomfortable seating everywhere in the hotel. The staff said this was a W "soft opening", we thought it a "hard opening".
Rooms were tiny but the site across the street at least interesting! Beds were good and staff tried to be helpful but nothing quite worked from our heating unit to our friends' safe.
Lots of money for a hotel that fell short of what it should be!!!
