Great hotel in the Financial District. FIrst I wanted to get a clean hotel (i.e. no bed bugs). The reviews indicated that this was a clean hotel and this is in fact what I found when I arrived. I was worried that it would be a mistake to stay in the financial district, but I need not have worried. The hotel is right across from a 24 hour Duane Reid's (the Walgreens of NYC - sells toiletries and limited gorceries), and a couple short blocks from the nearest metro (the red line). More subway lines, inclduing the PATH are nearby too, but you just need to walk a few more blocks. At night the area around was quiet, but not in a bad way. I felt very safe coming back late at night. The hotel includes some nice extras - minibar with free non-alcoholic drinks and snacks (the mini bar can be used as a fridge), and wi-fi was included. They also provide slippers and robes.
The hotel and rooms are definitely of the modern variety. The sinks were fine, but they are more shallow, so there is potential to get water around, but it wasn't an issue for us. I found the lighting to be less than adequate in the bathroom, but then discoverd the two lights on the sides. I also noticed these dim over time, so I had to re-turn them on.
My one dislike was that there was no concierge per say. All staff are able to answer these types of questions. The thing is is that I asked a few different questions. They were able to answer one question, but aside from googling (which I could have easily done) they did not tell me much or answer my quesitons. Instead of saying they could look into it more, they just said 'sorry.' This wasn't a dealbreaker, but if you rely on the concierge it may be something to think about, or just research beforehand.
