We were booked for 6 nights and so opted for $40 upgrade for a 'suite' that made all the difference for two people needing to do some work as well as sleep. A large room was divided into bedroom and sitting room by a 3/4 wall with closets and a TV on each side. There was a desk and a dining table allowing for 2 work stations, more than enough outlets for re-charging, a sofa and 2 arm chairs, a microwave, coffee maker. The bathroom was fine. In short this hotel is very serviceable.
Lower Manhattan has come alive. This is a great area to stay with it's proximity to Pier 11 ferries that cross the East River to provide the most spectacular views and many stops on the Brooklyn side for the remarkable fare of $2:75 (perhaps not so wonderful in winter...), Ground Zero and the 9/11 Memorial, and the wonderful mixture of old a new architecture surrounding Wall Street. Breakfast at Le Financier, a block away, is perfect. There are juice bars and salad places, pubs and bars and restaurants. Subway access is easy.More
