This Marriott is situated in the heart of New York’s Financial District. Although located near Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange, families can easily ferry over to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty from the South Street Seaport. Select rooms even overlook the Statue of Liberty or New York City Harbor. About 500 rooms in 38 stories are complete with marble bathrooms, down comforters and cityscape views. One-bedroom suites present dining and living areas, but families have plenty of space in Double Guest Rooms. Typically, the hotel offers children’s amenities, like welcome gifts.

This recently renovated Marriott property is extremely convenient for navigating Manhattan downtown and surrounding neighborhoods. The rooms are sleek and modern in style. Mine had excellent views of the Hudson. I'm guessing that there are some rooms that look out on the statue -- no such luck for me, but a great view nonetheless. Service was outstanding. Marriott club members receive $25 credit to spend on room service, starbucks or bar on property as well as a complimentary bottle of wine. West side highway access makes for quick transit to and from LaGuardia (if that existed) and the 9/11 memorial is literally steps from the hotel. Highly recommend.
We stayed here for a wedding in New York. The service at the hotel was absolutely fantastic. The bellman were right on top of everything, from getting a taxi for us, to holding doors to bringing luggage to the room and down. There's a Starbucks in the hotel which was perfect for us. The rooms were really nice, and the bathroom was updated and beautiful. I would stay here again anytime. It's a block from the freedom tower too.
