The Andaz is like a new concept hotel from the Hyatt hotel group. There is no one to take your bags, hail you a cab, escort you to your room, and even no real front desk. Rather, the staff stands around a counter so that they seem like they are on your team in a way. Therefore, check in can be completed sitting down or standing next to a friendly staff member, all over a complimentary beverage.
The location was surprisingly great for being in the Financial District. There are many attractions within walking distance including the Brooklyn Bridge, South Street Seaport, and The Wall Street Experience Tour (highly suggested). However, there are few notable dining and drinking options nearby.
The lobby includes a striking grand staircase, which is expected from David Rockwell, the renowned architect who designed the hotel. Expect many other great design features in the hotel.
I stayed in the terrific “Andaz XL King” room. A notable feature was the bedside control panel that flawlessly controlled the lighting and electronic blinds in the entire L-shaped room. Despite this, the bed was way too firm and the thin-glassed door for the bathroom stall was an unwelcome surprise.
Free water, juice, and some of the best espresso I have ever had are provided in the lobby. I believe they use beans from New York’s “Gimme! Coffee.” The hotel’s restaurant Wall & Water served a great lunch.
The service was unfortunate on two occasions. An “eHost” member made my family a dinner reservation, which unfortunately was incorrectly made because we showed up to the restaurant where they had no indication of a reservation for us. This issue was resolved with the hotel a little over a week later. Also, a call for extra pillows one night was unsuccessful because they were out.
The Andaz Wall Street is definitely worth staying at, especially if the Financial District is where you want or need to be!!!
