Loved the big huge rooms for NYC.
We found the staff at The Embassy very polite and helpful. The room was very comfortable and clean. Excellent having access to the internet in the business centre. Given the price of the suite we felt the bathroom, whilst clean, was rather shabby.
Spacious rooms. Great products. Awesome shower. Wish there was a coffee shop or starbucks in lobby
Beautiful hotel. Excellent service. Dramatic building and interior. Clunky internet sign on. Limited to 2 devices per room.
Liked all except conference facility. Hotel was great. Meeting room was bad. Seats may have been most uncomfortable seats I have ever sat in at a conference.
Good location, close to public transportation and nearby shopping, easy to get into uptown. Pretty quiet location. Breakfast is nothing extra, could focus on something else than, bacon, egg and bagels. Continental breakfast. Lack of information on what services are provided in the hotel e.g roomservice menu missing in room.
Location, facilities & service outstandingn Nothing
The rooms are very nice and comfortable. The staff was extremely helpful and professional. The breakfast was top notch. I would have loved to stay longer.
Been close to a park to enjoy calm after being in the heart of New-York.
The personel was very courteous. I like the complimentary bar from 5:30 to 7:30 and the choice and freshness of the breakfast Was awaken by a fire alarm at 4:00 am
Loved our deluxe suite room that had sliding doors which kept each room very quiet even when watching tv with the volume turned up in one room. The push button controls were really cool for the lights and privacy settings. Enjoyed the free breakfast at Atrio and the friendly service from everyone there especially the host. The front desk staff were extremely friendly and were able to accommodate a late checkout of 2pm for us. Appreciated the unique designs and architecture of the hotel. Liked that it was located right next to the World Trade Center, and of course Shake Shack. Liked using the exercise room and business center which were very clean and well maintained. Overall it was a very relaxing and pleasant stay. Nothing really except that there was no swimming pool or entertainment room with a pool table or table tennis.
architectural aspects of lobby and room. Location, location, location.
I lived in that neighborhood when I first moved to NY. The outdoor space that has the view of the Statue of Liberty has been closed. There is no view of the Harbor from any common area.
This is a lovely hotel, but it is a business hotel. Go to the one in Central Park if you are looking for a more romantic or family-oriented place to stay, but it is still a really nice place to stay. It's in battery park, away from the main buzz of nyc - lovely and quiet and the views of the Statue of Liberty are beautiful, but stay elsewhere if you want to be in the centre of things.
Very luxurious comfortable hotel. They seem to be able to find the perfect mix of attention or privacy based on what you are looking for and if you seek out any help. Very classy hotel with a great staff.
Nice and friendly staff TV did not work properly.
Bath + separate shower. Very friendly and professional service.
I had a beautiful,comfortable room with a breathtaking view overlooking the Statue Of Liberty and all the commerce on the river. It was a wonderful place home away from home for a great Big Apple week-end! N/A
Great View and location
Large and very clean room. The housekeeping service was really professional. The bathroom was comfortable, with a lot of space and really clean. The garage too expensive and without in and out privilege. I would suggest one of the several garage that you can find nearby the hotel, they are all more convinient. The hotel was perfect but the negative note was the charges for the wifi connection which is commonly for free in lower category hotels.
Bed's were comfortable and staff was super friendly. Bathroom was top notch. Getting a cab was super easy the staff were pro's at that. Nickle and dimed to death room from room service 4 drinks Cokes and Pepsi 2 of each were 30 plus dollars and they were the small bottles. I found pills in my room and my whute comforter had lots of dark lint.Food was standard at best. My room had no mini fridge. Windows were not sound proof. Really far from everything fun. Boat horns go off all times of the morning somtimes so loud it makes you look at your phone to see if its vibrating. Overall nice place could be the best if they fix these issues.
The friendliness and good education of the entire Staff. The setup of the room plus the commodities of th bath immense bathroom. The limitations of the breakfast offers plus the poor value for money
View - Memorable!
The location was outstanding with a view of the harbor and Statue of Liberty. The room was large and well laid out with an oversize bathroom. The staff at the concierge desk was outstanding and extremely courteous and helpful. Very elegant and pleasant stay.
The proximity to our friends 10 minutes away and the easy walk to Chinatown, great restaurants as well as the subway.I liked the modern decor and the ability to open the windows as well. We were offered a 50% discount to stay over on Sunday night. We were not there long enough!
the location was key. the rooms were decorated well and loved the tub in the bathroom. there was a problem with the temp of the room. it was 81 degrees and we couldn't set the thermostat. we asked for the front desk to check in at 8:30 and when we got home at 2:30- it was 79 degrees. it took time for someone to come up and fix and by that time- it was 3am.
Attentiveness and responsiveness of staff, the room, which was a joy to in which to spend time, and the quality of service throughout the stay. I'm always anxious at Smyth about having a room with sufficient peace and quiet that I can enjoy my stay, but this time I had a room on Floor 8 that was not close to the lift - very relaxing.
Lovely comfortable rooms great staff brilliant location Having to pay for wifi
The staff was friendly and accommodating. The room wa awesome and comfortable.
Modern features like iPod dock, latest tv, modern stylish bathroom, large windows
beautifully done and quiet
A trendy, new hotel with very helpful staff. Great room with nice amenities (HDTV, well-stocked mini bar, etc.) and a large bathroom with Kiehl toiletries. We especially liked the area as it was quiet at night with no loud bars or nightclubs either on the property or adjacent to it. It is just a few blocks from restaurants like Nobu and Tribeca Grill. The property sits directly above the Chambers St. Red Line (1, 2, 3 train) so you can get uptown quickly (Time Sq/Theather Dist and Columbus Circle). SoHo is one mile north/northeast and the Meat Packing Dist is two miles north/northwest of the hotel. The hotel guests we met appeared to be well-educated professionals who were quiet during the evening hours. We'll definitely stay here again. The room door was set to close and did so very forcefully. It should be adjusted so that the weight of the door does not close so quickly and forcefully. It was difficult to bring in/take out luggage. Also, the thermostat/room temp control was difficult to operate. However, the large comforter was warm enough that the room temperature issue did not present a problem in getting a good night's rest. Plus, I'm confident that had I/we found these problems to be more annoying that the helpful staff at the Smyth would have addressed them quickly; we were too busy enjoying NYC to be phoning in complaint calls to the front desk.
We had a good experience at the hotel. Staff was nice and rooms were very clean. Only minor negatives: Room service food, particularly breakfast, isn't really that good, which forced us to start going out for breakfast ( 3 out of 5 stars). However no worries because it's NYC so there is plenty of food around. Location isn't the greatest, but it's close enough ( 4 out of 5 starts). The 9/11 memorial is right across the street, which is convenient, but other than that, you'll generally be taxiing or ubering everywhere. My boyfriend forgot his keys and didn't realize until we were back in DC. The great news is that the housekeeper did turn in the keys, but the guy in the list and find area was being a dick, asking him the most ridiculous questions... We still haven't received the keys either. Hopefully they actually send them.
Beautiful hotel. The room was clean, nice and had an amazing view of the Freedom tower! Well worth the money
Clean, beautiful view, attentive staff 20min cab ride to uptown
They easily accommodated all of my requests and the staff was delightful in all of their interactions. Beyond that, the hotels looks nice, has clean facilities and has a great location next to the One World Trade Center/Freedom Tower, as well as connections to a variety of subway lines. Very convenient.
Great view, clean rooms, very attentive bellhop and staff. An air conditioning unit that was never able to reach the desired temp and a rattle from the unit itself all night long.
The rate was great for NY. Room was clean and the bellman are always helpful. The bathrooms in the lobby are disgusting. If you're having a drink down there you have to constantly go up to your room to use the restroom since the others are so dirty and smell like urine. The concierge was not helpful. When asking for recommendations to restaurants, he would only direct us to their restaurant in the 3rd floor. Also asked him about the Book of Mormon show, he called and tickets were over 325 ea. We had to talk to other a couple others in the hotel who gave us recommendations and we got tickets for a little over 130 ea. Seems lazy or completely unaware - probably shouldn't be the concierge.
Baggage check & location
Loved everything from staff to the fresh new high class bed sheets 55 dollars a day to park, moved 1 bottle of champagne in the fridge and was charged 20 dollars for it, due to the sensors on the bottles, called front desk and they removed it from the bill with no issue though.
Location was what we liked and felt vary safe at all times. The staff was friendly and the room was clean and comfortably. The parking was a great convenince but seamed pricey when you add it to the room cost. Maby price it per visit vs per night.
fast elevators, clean rooms, super quiet, great pool, big windows, nice/spacious lobby, subway entrance out front to ACE and R. Comfortable beds/pillows/linens
Location to shopping, tourist attractions, and public transportation lump between two matresses being placed together to form a larger bed
Location and cleanliness of room
It is a really good choice! Clean and new hotel, in the middle of wall street, it is really cheap compared to other much more options in new york. The price I paid was 20% less expensive than other hotel in town. Rooms are clean, nice and confortable. Self check in is strange but very efficient at the end!!!
I had a PHENOMENAL front dresk staff Saturday when I got in! Super helpful!!
The staff is very courteous and helpful. The premises are clean and well maintained. The location is awesome if you like to walk around and take in the sights. The Financial District is one of the few places I enjoy walking around as it isn't as densely populated at night. The room we had was right by a garbage disposal or ice machine so every so often we'd hear it go off. Very distracting and unpleasant. The room seemed smaller than it is because the ceilings are outrageously tall. The bathroom looks like the designer took a page out of the YMCA men's domicile for inspiration - cheap tile, crappy shower, meh. The windows haven't been washed in what I can only assume is eons so even if the view were breathtaking (it wasn't) you wouldn't be able to see it properly.
I thought the staff very responsive to my questions. I had a document printed out at short notice, and it was done efficiently and without complaint. What I most disliked was the set-up with the television. It is absolutely standard these days --even at a motel 6 -- to have a large number of cable tv stations available with at least some of the more common movie channels. There was none of that. Also, one would expect a large movies-on-demand set-up on the television and that too was missing. 2) my in-house phone did not work, and so to communicate with the front desk, I had to go down by elevator; 3) it was difficult to catch a cab in this part of wall street, and there was no way of doing so, according to the staff, except to walk 2 or 3 blocks and hope for the best. The hotel should have a better arrangement when it comes to cabs; 4) the bed was fine, but the only cover/comforter doubled as a bed-spread, which meant one had to sleep with the bed-spread, which I find off-putting -- potentially unclean.
The location was very convenient to all of the Financial District. The attached restaurant provided good food and standard NY prices. The room was clean, quite (outside noise was minimal) and the staff very accommodating. Although the parking was discounted, it was about a block away. It was not clear where the parking facility was located and I circled the blocks a few times and wound up having to call the hotel to give me instructions on where to go.
The location, included amenities, and service were all spot on. Will definitely return here. Only complaint was the hard bed. That said, it was well worth the trade off.
The room was quite clean and comfortable. I really enjoyed the water bottle refill station.
The staff was very polite.
Location was excellent but hotel was way too expensive
Very Clean, well maintained. Smallish rooms.

Good value No
it was in the center of a lot of attractions the wrong address is on the advertisement. It states 170 Broadway but it is not even on Broadway and believe me New York is not the place to get lost!! We drove around for over 2 hrs trying to find the hotel. The valet took $55 from us!!
The hotel staff overall was fantastic. The breakfast staff was absolutely outstanding, so pleasant, attentive and professional!! Kudos! N/a
Awesome staff. Great having a full kitchen, saved a lot of money in NY. The charge to park/store my car for three nights/four days was about the same or less than one roundtrip Amtrak ticket from Boston (where I live). Very nit-picky here: the pillows were flat -- the feathery kind that flattens as soon as you put your head on it. Also, TV channels kind of stink if traveling with kids, no learning, just NICK, TOON, and ABC Family. BUT good tv, can plug in devices.

The bed is very comfortable, and the shower is excellent. Can't think of anything.
I liked bringing my creature comforts from home and I didn't sacrifice my diet. I had the King Room with the full kitchen and it was well equipped, even more than I had expected. I was able to pick up goodies from the Greenmarket on Union Square. The location given wasn't accurate on GPS.
I loved this hotel. It was perfect! The staff was super accommodating and friendly. The room was clean and quiet. Good mix of couples, and families with older children. For the location and price, I could not have stayed a better place.
Excellent location near to numerous subway stations. The staff were welcoming and professional.

quite new.....very cleanly....comfortable bed.......
The hotel was beautiful I disliked the way I was treated by some staff
the location was conducive to trips to various sites in the city,the staff was pleasant and the continental breakfast was nice.
Beautiful, confortable and very very clean !!!
The Room are new and with good furniture.They are big compared to the New York Standard. The bathroom as well is enough big and everithing is very clean. No noise even if near to the constructions of the wtc. 3 different metro near to the hotel in 200m. Good free WiFi. Public pc with printer available. Free fresh water on every floor. Complimentary breakfast is fair, but few choices and not refilled. Time for breakfast is short (07:00 to 09:00 am). Breakfast room is small and not equipped with tables: they are still finishing the hotel (Dec 09/Jan 10) and then there are only armchairs with small tables on the side. Staff not very professional. The price is already full even if something need to be finished.
Great location, clean and modern rooms, free wireless & wired internet connection. Staff not overly friendly
Stayed at this hotel for 7 nights in room no 825. staff are very friendly it is right next door to the world trade centre and a lot of building work is being done, I do not understand why people complain about the noise on previous postings, as when you are in the hotel you can hardly here it [yes everyone knows there is a lot of building work so why complain ] breakfast is good value , free internet use and free coffee in the louge I would highly recommend this hotel,michael & louise westcliff-on-sea essex england
We where not told that the room was a "pull out sofa bed" so I was forced to upgrade, I was also told by booking.com the breakfast was $8.00 for the continental buffet and it was 16.00 The Price, you can stay at the Milleniium for the same amount of money and its much friendlier and luxurious
The location is unquestionably the real interest for this hotel may be we were unlucky but we had neighbouring very noisy and boring late in the night, noise again very early in the morning and the hotel just forgot our room cleaning while it was totally free all the day
The hotel restaurant was brilliant. The location for Downtown exploration was amazing. Fantastic value for money. The was no pan for the hob in the room.
Quiet environment like being at home with excellent service. Close to business excellent positioning Nothing
The location was great. The room was adorable. The staff was very freindly and courteous
Location was best for business. Location
Hotel was good but service not what was expected delay in releasing car from valet parking Bad customer service
Clean nice hotel near ground zero. Subway sations near as well as some restaurants. A suite was not very large, but comfortable for four people. A special price was very resonable for quality of hotel and service. Construction noise may disturb in some rooms, not a problem for us. A suite was booked for four people, but towels etc. only for three. After complaint an extra was gotten, but same problem next day.
The hotel was clean , the room was just the right size. The services provided are very good (free internet access, with yourown pc in your bedroom, or in the pc room, where you can print out your check-in on-line; free water provided; gym facilities).The hotel is in the Financial district, very close to the subway station, so in 15 minutes you can be at Time Square). The staff was helpful. I found a little hole in the bed-sheet, but I believe that was just something that can happen once in a while. Compared to many other hotels in NY the World Center had a reasonable price, but still I found it quite expensive...250 Dollars for just one night (it was the night of the Marathon though, so prices were quite high everywhere)! I guess that's just NY!
It was convenient in Manhattan, and the staff was very helpful. A little noisy with the construction nearby of the new Freedom Tower
subway closed price
Modern and clean. Very secure.
Clean rooms, the staff was incredibly helpful and very friendly (gave us an upgrade, too!), great price, rooftop restaurant/bar had great views and a nice happy hour. There is a lot of construction near Ground Zero which can make it a little noisy during weekdays, but obviously that's not their fault and it really wasn't anything terrible. And over the weekend there was no noise at all.
We picked the hotel because of its price and location. Very nice design, clever use of space. We had a handicap accessible room and it worked great.
Everyone was helpful, and gave great suggesstions. The room was large enough for the 4 of us, not always the case in NYC, clean and comfortable. We were very happy with the location and the BLT restaurant was very good.
Was easy to get there, since it was a weekend we parked on the street without a problem and as we marked in the preferences we wanted a room with a view they gave us a a room looking at the Hudson River.
Considering it was the marathon weekend we were able to get a room here. Very clean. Beds were small and not that comfortable. But for NYC it was bigger than I have seen
awesome location, convenient restaurant downstairs, and a great staff. i didn't like my corner room. It was very hard to get into. Also the tv would stop working every 15 minutes and took a while to fix everytime. Then the thermostat would reset itself to 72 every couple of hours
Not much You pay additional for everything except a basic bed. The staff has a negative attitude that borders on rude. The elevator service is very slow.
The facilities were amazing. There was a lot of noise on our floor at night.
Everything - the staff were especially friendly and helpful. This is a very attractive and hip boutique hotel right in the middle of the financial district. This is a real find
Rooms are small but cute. Good for the price and if looking for something nice but not super luxurious. no room service for two days. Each time we called concierge, noone picked up the phone.
Very mediocre fitness center. Due to limited space perhaps they could work out an arrangement with a nearby gym.
Hotel Staff's great attitude and manners. At the Lobby, housekeeping etc. Nothing in particular. A minor problem with A/C the last night. They reacted inmediately. No issue in my opinion.
Smoke alarm going off during the night because of low battery.
The rooms are very modern, beautiful and trendy and the hotel staff is excellent! The financial district is very quiet at night, so you'll be able to a good night's sleep. Three subway lines stop really near to the hotel. If you like to sleep in the middle of the 'buzz' of New York and would like to walk 'home' from, say, Times Square, you would be better of somewhere else. I would definitely consider staying in this hotel again, though.
It was close to Pace University and the decor was good. nothing
the staff and hospitality. the location. It's not easy to find.
Great room, comfy, upscale. Original decoration. Good location, in the financial district, close to subway. Very good value for money in NYC.
The Staff has been really great and the free Wifi is a real plus
