In the heart of NYC's most quickly revitalizing neighborhood, W New York – Downtown rises from one of the city’s most important sites and rubs shoulders with some of its most spectacular sights. With commanding views of the memorial and city as well as water views to the east, west and south, the hotel’s landscaped urban plaza introduces more open space downtown—this is too good to be true real estate. The spectacle continues inside, beginning with the Anemone Chandelier at the entrance designed by renowned UK light sculptor Bruce Munro. With 1,260 individually hung glass droplets illuminated via fiber optic projectors, the lofty double-height space is further accentuated with black mini mosaic-tiled walls and polished black granite floors. As a frosted translucent bridge spans overhead, the reflection of the glass light sculpture onto the black floor is elegant and stunning. Climbing your way to the top of New York's social ladder begins at W Living Room Bar & Terrace, where cocktail cozying and scene-making schmoozing are always in fashion. Keep up with the fast pace of the city by staying in shape at SWEAT® Fitness Center. With a complete WIRED® Business Center, P.A.W. —Pe... more

Financial District Description

W New York Downtown is located in the Financial District neighborhood of Manhattan. The financial hub of the United States, the seat of New York City government, and home to some of New York's oldest buildings, the Financial District has an illustrious history. 17th century settlers began building here, and given the many seafarers of the time, boats could be conveniently docked at one of the slips right near the settlements of wooden homes. Right nearby, in the heart of the district is Federal Hall, where George Washington was inaugurated as the first President of the United States in 1789, also the meeting site for the First Congress. New York City was both the capital of the United States and New York State at the time.

The street names reflect the district's fascinating history: Fulton Street, named after Robert Fulton, the inventor of the steamboat; Maiden Lane, originally called Magde Platje in Dutch; Beaver Street, recalling the once-significant beaver pelt trade, etc.

The area today houses some great economic powerhouses, including the headquarters of major banks, the New York Stock Exchange, in addition to the World Financial Center. Contrasts are extraordinary, from old two- and three-story old brick buildings near South Street Seaport to the nearby modern mega-skyscrapers. Some of the numerous other attractions include Fraunces Tavern, where George Washington bid farewell to his troops (also, they have a museum!); the newly-landscaped City Hall Park; the Museum of the American Indian and the US Custom House at Bowling Green; Trinity Church, the first parish church in New York City and the resting place of Alexander Hamilton and Robert Fulton, among others; War Of 1812 strong hold Castle Clinton; the Staten Island-bound South Ferry; Battery Park; and the Federal Reserve Bank. Sadly, the biggest attraction since 9/11 has been the former World Trade Center site, although, thankfully, construction has finally filled the long-standing gouge in Lower Manhattan's face, and the stunning 9/11 Memorial and its attendant museum are welcome signs of a healing city. And, of course, soaring a symbolic 1,776 feet over the memorial is the new 1 World Trade Center!

Best Rate Guarantee

Which New York hotels qualify for the NYC.com Best Rate Guarantee? Almost all of them! Just look for the Best Rate Guarantee Seal when you are searching for your New York hotel.

We stand behind your reservation and our Best Rate Guarantee.
Unlike other so called guarantees, the NYC.com Best Rate Guarantee
doesn't expire after 24 hours.

The NYC.com Best Rate Guarantee protects your wallet and takes the worry out of booking a hotel room. Because of the large volume of New York City lodging reservations we process, we are able to negotiate special rates with New York City hotels. All e-$aver Rate Hotel reservations booked through NYC.com are guaranteed to be the lowest rate available for that hotel. After you book with NYC.com, if you find a lower publicly available rate online for the same dates, hotel, and room category, we will match the price and refund you the difference.

And unlike other so called "Guarantees," we will match the price right up to the time of the hotel's cancella- tion deadline, whether that is three days after you made the booking or three months. So stop worrying and start booking.
