“Great hotel with stunning view”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

Great hotel with stunning view. The staff was very friendly. Very bad communication before the check-in when I asked the total amount of our stay with tax included. The rooms are great, modern and large for NYC. It's close to several subway stations. On my next visit to NY I will stay again in the same hotel.

Room Tip: Choose a queen standard room with 9/11 memorial view.

Our first trip in several years and could not have been happier. We arrived early and they had no problems checking us in. We went right to our room and it was roomy and clean. Then we opened the curtains and the view took our breath away. Nothing between us and the World Trade Towers, breathtaking. The dinning room on the 20th floor was also picture perfect and the food was very good, a little pricey but we are in New York. The staff was pleasant and helpful and it was not a far walk to the sightseeing bus stop or a walk down to the water. Will be staying here the next time we go to New York.

What a nice weekend to start my Birthday Week! It was truly an awesome experience! I enjoyed my whole weekend from the time we arrived in the Hotel! I enjoyed the beautiful New York City view from the Hotel window! I will definitely come back to this Hotel! The staff are friendly and professional! We enjoyed the Breakfast at the Rooftop Garden Terrace! Awesome view and very nice Servers and Waiters especially Ramon, who took nice souvenir pictures of us! Thank you very much! The Room is clean and complete with the necessary amenities WiFi, phone, TV etc. Comfortable beds! The most impressive are the Free Bottled Water for our sightseeing! I am highly recommending this Hotel to y family and friends!

Room Tip: Choose the Room with a Super View of the Freedom Tower, 911 Memorial Waterfalls!

This hotel is very modern, clean and so close to the 9-11 Memorial that we could see the fountains from the roof top and awesome view from the room as well. The subway locations are very convenient. The walk to Little Italy is short and they have THE BEST ITALIAN FOOD I've ever experienced.

The World Center Hotel was one wonderful experience. Starting with a very quick and efficient check-in, to a free upgrade to a very clean and spacious suite on the 16th floor with perfect views to Ground Zero and the World Trade Centre, to the Root-top Restaurant and Terrace (on the Terrace, you can relax and enjoy the views without having to buy any food or drink from the hotel's restaurant) to the very quick and efficient check-out.For future visits, the World Center Hotel will be my one and only base in New York.

I can't begin to praise this establishment. It was everything I could have asked for in New York. We looked on line for a property that had it all, not expecting it. When we arrived it was late and our room was comfortable with a kitchenette including a 2 burner stove, but we had no view and we we on vacation and not been to New York. My daughter had called prior to our arrival to ask for a room with 2 beds since we were 3 in the room. Sophia was wonderful when my daughter called to the front desk asking for a room change explaining our needs since we were 3 in the room. Immediately we were given a different room, I can't explain how great the room was! 19th floor with a view, I felt like a MVP. The hotel also offers free wifi, water bottles with filtered water, coffee daily. We could walk to Wall St, Soho, Canal St was a 8$ cab ride, and a block from station 1 subway. Places to eat abound. If you choose this hotel you won't be disappointed. When we were leaving for the airport our car service that we had hired was a no show within 5 min Lai had a car for us and helped us get loaded into car so we didn't miss our flight. I will return to this hotel when in New York.

Room Tip: Be nice and good things will come.
