From the moment we checked in, we were made to feel special and welcome. The staff was friendly and smart. Getting into the entrance from Albany is a little tricky because the hotel is exactly next to Ground Zero. Seriously, the lineup for tours runs right past the front door of the hotel. Also, World Center Hotel is a combined property with Club Quarters and after the dual front desks, there is no actual separation of the two sides. World Center guests can use the awesome cappuccino/espresso/latte machine in the CQ lobby.
We were greeted by Franz at the front desk, a friendly guy with a great smile. He took incredibly good care of us and we felt like VIPs.
Our room was a corner suite with a massive wraparound balcony overlooking Ground Zero. We had multiple river views.
Just a few blocks away is plenty of shopping. Century 21 looks amazing but we did not go in. There's also an Urban Outfitters nearby. For a comprehensive grocery shopping experience, walk to Zeytuna at 59 Maiden Lane.
The 20th floor restaurant was great for breakfast and would love to return at night.
