It was our first visit to New York so I didn't have any comparison for hotel and room size etc. I wanted a highly rated hotel out of the many in New York. A flight and hotel deal gave us this option. And I was really really pleased with it.
It is in the Financial District/Lower Manhattan, close to 9/11 memorial and only a 10 minute subway ride from Wall Street to the madness that is Times Square.
Don't worry about it being quiet at night or weekends as there are some great restaurants in the area, Fraunces Tavern, Harry's Cafe and Delmonicos to name a few plus quite a few on Stone Street.
Room was a good size, we had a double double as we were a family of 4 and the free non alcoholic mini bar was a god send for the kids as was the free wifi. Nice bluetooth speaker that your ipad could connect too to play music etc. Free coffee in lobby all day and free wine between 6-7pm.
We had one problem and that was the water made its way under the shower door onto the bathroom floor. I realised nothing could be done as it was clearly more of a design fault. A well placed towel and an explanation to the staff as to why the towels were so wet but it didn't detract one bit from a really good experience.More
