Great location in the Financial District
Posted Apr 22, 2017
We headed down for an Easter weekend trip. It's been a number of years since I stayed at this particular Hilton, but if you stay on the weekend, this place is a darned good deal. During the week, it's standard expensive business hotel, but they really cut the prices on the weekend. Overall the staff is very efficient, check-in took less than 5 minutes, and checkout was available from inside the room. Rooms are clean, and the views are pretty fantastic. Windows overlook the 9/11 memorial, and the Westfield World Trade Center building. The easy access to several subway lines makes getting around a breeze, so we were able to go to a show with a friend off Broadway, go back to the hotel to change and freshen up, and make dinner reservations on the Upper East Side, no problem. It's also an easy stroll to the new WTC building, Zuccotti Park, the NYSE building, and other interesting sights to see the beating heart of American capitalism. About a 15 minute walk down the road is Battery Park, and the ferries to Liberty and Ellis Islands. The easy access, comfortable rooms, and tons of dining options make this a great hotel for a couple's getaway weekend in the city.
