A busy hotel right next to site of WTC. Not the prettiest in terms of surroundings but convenient location for shops and food (though not great restaurants, more touristy joints, food chains, diner/cafe types, pizza places offering pizza by the slice, etc). We had some mix up with bookings when we checked in, and later attempts to rectify were not entertained as room payments taken up front; we asked if a booking fee could be reversed and was told 'no' one day by someone manning front desk who didn't seem very helpful, and 'yes' and sorted within 5 minutes another day, which was great, but made us wonder what all the kerfuffle was the first time round. All in all, had the feeling that this is very much a large established hotel, the sort that from check in to check out feels quite perfunctory and conveyor-belt-ish. So serves the purpose as a place to stay in terms of a roof over one's head and a bed to lie in, but not one which encourages lingering or lounging about. No frills, straight up hotel, has all the usual standard amenities (safe in room, TV, ensuite bathrooms, bar fridge etc) but wi fi in rooms cost $14.99 per day not incl tax, which is a pity for a business type hotel like this. Beds deserve a mention though -- very comfortable bed and pillows. We paid between $260 to $320 per night depending on the day, we stayed 4 nights -- weekday rate was more than weekend. We ate at Bill's downstairs -- food was average. BLT Bar and Grill opposite (back entrance) was better. For coffees, we popped downstairs to the Starbucks next to back entrance a lot as I didn't like the coffee in the room. (Tea/coffee making facilities available in room) But strangely, the Starbucks closed at 6pm each day; quite odd as they looked busy all the time and imagine many of those staying at the hotel -- like us -- were using it quite a lot.
