This is my second time at this hotel. The last time I stayed was April 2006. The Hilton is located right across from the WTC site and was renovated after 9/11, it has all updated fixtures and flat screen TVs. They have reopened the main entrance in the last year and the lobby seemed much more put together since the last time I was there.
The rooms are a good size by NYC standards and the view is tremendous (it’s interesting to see the construction of the WTC site). Its located next to the Fulton subway station and within three blocks you can get a subway to anywhere in NYC. My wife and I took advantage of the downtown location to explore some of the small museums in Lower Manhattan and had a great three days.
There are plenty of pubs and bars in the Financial District and on Reade and Chambers street, but it is very much an after work crowd.
I’m pretty self sufficient so I didn’t really have any contact with anyone who works there, nor did I need to, everything was very smooth.
I recommend it for people who have business in the Financial District and people who are looking at staying in a different part of NY.
I booked the room through Priceline.
