W - New York Downtown
The name of this hotel only has one letter but it more than makes up for this with the service and ultra-modern surroundings that it provides for its guests. Located in Lower Manhattan in the centre of New York’s financial district, the W is only minutes from many of the foremost attractions of this historic area.
Just steps away from the hotel entrance is Battery Park, a small, peaceful area where there are magnificent views of the harbour and the skyline of Brooklyn, Queens and New Jersey. It’s also the place where you can take a ferry to Ellis Island and get close to the Statue of Liberty. The island also has a fascinating museum dedicated to the early immigrants who came to seek a new life in America.
Other attractions in this part of Manhattan are South Street Seaport, a bustling spot full of restaurants, bars and shops selling every imaginable item – great for souvenir shopping - and Trinity Church, one of the oldest churches in the USA. For a unique shopping experience a visit to nearby Soho brings the world of designer stores such as Louis Vuitton, Chanel, and Marc Jacobs to your grasp. You’ll also find major department stores such as Bloomingdales in this area.
The hotel has made it easy for you to get to know the area with their unique Accura experience. As a W guest you can reserve a complimentary ride around town in one of these luxury vehicles, packed with W treats.
Should you feel that you can’t afford to have too much time off from your exercise routine or perhaps just want to know what the inside of a gym looks like, all W Hotel guests can access the fully-equipped and aptly named SWEAT Fitness Centre. There is all the equipment you will ever need and more in this state-of-the-art haven for the fitness freak.
BLT Bar & Grill
The BLT Bar & Grill is the choice for snacks or a meal in a casual, relaxed atmosphere. High ceilings and glass lanterns create the feeling of an olde-world tavern while the many TV screens dotted around allow you to catch up with the day’s events. If you would prefer a little privacy the menu from the BLT Bar & Grill is available for 24 hour room service.
Living Room Bar and Terrace
Located on the fifth floor, The Living Room Bar and Terrace has full length windows that present you with wonderful views of the city whilst enjoying a relaxing drink or light meal. If the weather is fine, step out on to the terrace where the views are even more spectacular. If you feel like lingering there is a library and a selection of board games to help while away the time.
