I never thought one could feel out of the way in NYC, but that is exactly what the location of this hotel feels like. It is a 20 minute 20 dollar cab to midtown. Short walk to the Staten Island ferry and financial district/wtc but beyond that there are very few dining options or bars within walking distance. If you want to feel isolated while in Manhattan, this is the place. I love the feel of the city so this property was too remote for my tastes.
Hotel itself was very nice if not a fairly standard issue Ritz. Check in seamless and handled very well despite our arrival before noon. Suite upgrade offered but I needed two beds so we got a club level upgrade instead. Room was typical Ritz nothing more, nothing less. Carpet either a weird color or soiled. Not sure which. Due to the club level upgrade we had city view so no telescope/statute of liberty view.
Coffee shop for breakfast ok. Tried to go to the view lounge and it was closed on a Friday evening for a private party. So much for saving access for hotel guests. Doormen were very helpful and professional as was housekeeping staff.
