I needed a hotel room for a business meeting at Federal Plaza/Downtown Manhattan. This was the only hotel within walking distance that was not well over $200 a night. I had a standard double. This looks like a converted old NYC office building. The lobby is small but nice and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The hallway to my room looked a bit worn and the door had an "old fashioned" key lock, not the card readers. I was escorted to my room by a bellhop who was very personable. When entering my room I asked where I could get some ice, and he said he would have to get it for me, which he did very promptly.
Now to the room. I think I had a college dorm room bigger than this, in fact I know I did. It was about the size of an office. Just big enough for a full size bed, night table and thin desk to fit on one wall. No closet, just a bar with hangers. Clock/ipod dock on nightstand. The bathroom was equally small but not claustrophobic. It had all the standard soap etc.. amenities and a hairdryer. Great water pressure as well. The bed was very comfortable and the room was clean and well appointed. The flat screen TV was attached to the corner angled towards the bed. The A/C window unit was very loud and when running I could not hear the TV, but kept the temp nice. A ceiling fan allowed me to watch TV without the A/C on for a while and still be comfortable.
Location is excellent. Easy walk to the Financial district, Trinity Church, Town Hall, Fed Paza, and all the downtown sights. Restaurants, bars, etc.. all over the place. The hotel itself has a nice little cafe/wine bar/creperie and a Starbucks is there also. The Amish Market is a block down where you can buy pretty much everything from groceries to freshly prepared meals.
I did not have a problem with hallway or room noise. In this regard the A/C "white noise" kept my room in a cocoon.
I would recommend this hotel for a single or double if you need to stay in this area of Manhattan which is otherwise ridiculously expensive. Would you get more for your money in a hotel room at this price outside of NYC - absolutely. But in Manhattan this place is a bargain and well worth it.
