Been close to a park to enjoy calm after being in the heart of New-York.
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.
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.
Spacious rooms. Great products. Awesome shower. Wish there was a coffee shop or starbucks in lobby
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.
Location, facilities & service outstandingn Nothing
Loved the big huge rooms for NYC.
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.
architectural aspects of lobby and room. Location, location, location.
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
Beautiful hotel. Excellent service. Dramatic building and interior. Clunky internet sign on. Limited to 2 devices per room.
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.
Very nice hotel, plenty of room, nice bathroom with nice translucent shower -- you typically don't get this much space in New York. Staff was friendly and I enjoyed the 1960's metal robots behind the lobby checkin desk. It's located in a good neighborhood, if not a bit generic. There are also a lot of nearby restaurant options, and it's a short walk to other areas with even more options. Bed was very comfortable. Lower floors can be loud with little insulation from traffic, including car stereos. I would request a high floor. Breakfast in the hotel was ruled not very good by both folks in our party, and it was rather expensive, so I'd probably eat elsewhere. However you don't pick a hotel for the restaurant and everything else was otherwise great.
Modern features like iPod dock, latest tv, modern stylish bathroom, large windows
Lovely comfortable rooms great staff brilliant location Having to pay for wifi
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.
I asked if the hotel had any rooms with a bathtub. They made sure to give me the one room that had one. The staff and door men were really nice and helpful. The hotel lobby was under construction. While I didn't mind not being able to have a working restaurant or bar in my hotel, I did mind that the construction began at 7 am. The pounding and jack-hammering woke me up. They should at the very least wait until 9 am. It made me rush out the door rather than relax before starting my day. On my last day (after being woken up by the construction noise ) I threw on my clothes and just left. I requested to the staff I should be compensated. My phone didn't work very well in the hotel. I found myself going up and down the elevator to go outside to use it. Why charge $15 a day for Wifi? I also had trouble using the elevator cards. 5 and 6 times before the little green light came on so I could push my floor button.
beautifully done and quiet
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 staff was friendly and accommodating. The room wa awesome and comfortable.
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.
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.
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.
Great View and location
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
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
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
View - Memorable!
Nice and friendly staff TV did not work properly.
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.
The price dropped significantly, and I was refused a prove match refund through the company I booked with via kayak. I will never book through them again.
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.
Baggage check & location
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.
Clean, beautiful view, attentive staff 20min cab ride to uptown
Beautiful hotel. The room was clean, nice and had an amazing view of the Freedom tower! Well worth the money
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
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.
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.
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.
The toilet did not work and the desk sent someone up from engineering within 10 minutes.
Staff was very friendly and helpful.
Bathroom design is too crampy, no place to put extra toiletries. there was no refrigerator in my room.
the bathroom flooded every time i showered
The location was great! Everything was at walking distance! The check out too early!
We arrived very early New York morning The hotel gave us a beautiful and very soon we got our room. Very nice hotel, our room too. Very comfortable, new and inviting. We were assisted by representatives of all that we had to receipt and received excellent service and answers to all our questions. We would be happy to stay at the hotel, even when we get next time.
Location to major tourist attractions a huge plus! The 9/11 memorial and Statue of Liberty close by. Access to the subway is also walking distance. The room was small. The bathroom was even smaller. Could barely close the door once you step in. The elevator took forever to get to my floor. Over 10+ minutes. When the elevator doors finally opened, it's packed with people. I had to go down 13 flights of stairs with luggages! Not happy at all!
Location is the best thing about this hotel. Hotel was very clean. Rooms are too overcrowded. Can barely walk around my room. Very small rooms make me feel very clostophobic. Workers misinformed me about parking and had to pay full price for parking instead of getting discounted rate.
I enjoyed the modern room style and the view of the city.
The location was prime. Especially if you're staying in the area for buisness. View was amazing. Staff was VERY friendly. Left some medication in my room after check out and they let me back into the room to grab it. The staff could work on giving better directions, but they were friendly and eager to help. Everything was clean and new. Also was nice cherry on top to be able to stay you've stayed at the tallest Holiday Inn in the world. Bar area was nice and bartender was friendly and offered us a free drink. Would certainly recommend this hotel if you're staying in the Financial District of Manhattan. The room was small. The king size bed took up about half the room, but we were only staying a night so we didn't mind. Also, the parking was a few blocks away, not well marked and a bit pricey (it is NYC after all). It was a bit of a hike to get to Central Park, Times Square etc. but the Statue of Liberty and 9/11 memorial/Freedom Tower are a short walk. No need for a cab or subway.
Convenient and clean. The rooms were a bit smaller than What I was use to.....but comfortable bed
Very nice stay. Almost my dream hotel room. The vendor machine at 10th floor doesn't work.
I had a PHENOMENAL front dresk staff Saturday when I got in! Super helpful!!
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.
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.
Location was excellent but hotel was way too expensive
Location and cleanliness of room
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.
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!!!
The staff was very polite.
The room was quite clean and comfortable. I really enjoyed the water bottle refill station.
Very Clean, well maintained. Smallish rooms.
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.
Location to shopping, tourist attractions, and public transportation lump between two matresses being placed together to form a larger bed
Style and cleanliness of hotel good. Room is small, but not unreasonably so. Construction around the site made access less trhan ideal.
that we had to leave
Ice cold filtered water and plastic bottles to fill, free of charge, on every floor - a lovely amenity in NYC in July. Room was luxe and comfortable, affordable by NYC standards, but there are signs that maintenance is being deferred - poorly patched ceilings and window seals, sluggish drains, housekeeping giving the once-over instead of a real cleaning. This was our second stay, but it was nicer last year. I hope it will be back on the upswing again next year! Better housekeeping and maintenance required - it's far from filthy and broken-down, but as an experienced traveler, I can see signs that things are being given a lick and a promise instead of the required cleaning and maintenance. My son's white socks were BLACK on the soles from walking around the carpeted room.
I liked the value of this hotel, as finding a decent hotel at an affordable rate is difficult in Manhattan. The room was small but efficiently laid out. On the 20th floor in the restaurant, one can get a great view of the 9/11 Memorial from atop. Breakfast is not included in stay, so beware as the breakfast buffet and a cup of tea came out to $24. Since New York is full of great restaurants and places to grab brunch, I always prefer to grab a tasty bite elsewhere.
The convenient location next to 911 Memorial Museum and great view from rootop. Old and outdated, worn out pillows, sheets, and ammenitis.
Great price and good view from the 17th floor
Location and value were superb! Nothing
clean well appointed room with great view and great price
Great view of the World Trade Center. Restaurant food was good. Breakfast options were limited and exactly the same everyday
The location, the amenities, the staff, and the rate ... everything about this hotel was spectacular. I suggest everyone at least take a look at the restaurant that overlooks the 9/11 memorial and the rooftop deck. The staff at 10pm and at 10am were bubbly and personable but most importantly, they were extremely helpful. I can't say enough nice things about this property. The only negative that I could possibly mention is the water pressure wasn't as strong as I like. Other than that, everything was wonderful.
Overall, our stay was short but sweet- the view from the restaurant is amazing, which can only be beat by the sun terrace! Absolutely breathtaking
Location was best for business. Location
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.
The location was great. The room was adorable. The staff was very freindly and courteous
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.
subway closed price
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.
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.
It was convenient in Manhattan, and the staff was very helpful. A little noisy with the construction nearby of the new Freedom Tower
Quiet environment like being at home with excellent service. Close to business excellent positioning Nothing
Hotel was good but service not what was expected delay in releasing car from valet parking Bad customer service
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!
Modern and clean. Very secure.
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.
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.
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.
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
Overall great experience- modern, great staff, excellent restaurant. Would stay again!
Very mediocre fitness center. Due to limited space perhaps they could work out an arrangement with a nearby gym.
We were greeted by the courteous staff after entering the unique entryway. A staircase surrounded by old books, leather seats, and an inviting chess set adorn the hall adjacent to a wine bar we were glad not to miss. The gold elevators requiring a room key to access brought us to our room. The bed was so comfortable, the room had a refreshing old school/hipster vibe. It has all the amenities you would expect from a great hotel and ten times the style. The location allowed us to hop on any subway we wanted and surrounded us with several landmarks and restaurants. We'll be comparing other hotels to this one from now on. The maids were even really nice to us. We loved staying in New York and even loved sitting back with a glass of wine in our room. I didn't like leaving.
Very clean, staff was super nice and accommodating and it was very quiet! I highly recommend The Gild and we will definitely return. This is our new "go to" hotel! Elevators are slow but it certainly didn't affect our stay.
The location to everything downtown New York was excellent; walking distance. The restaurant "Felice" was one of the best Italian Food I have ever had. Staff friendly!!
Service, vibe, ambience, location Workout facilities.
Very friendly and accomodating staff. Received a complimentary glass of wine immediately upon my arrival. Nice after 10 hrs on the road. Very good vibe. Comfortable beds, clean rooms, good location. The hotel was a bit hard to find despite having a GPS. Not really, the hotels fault, I guess. The bathroom wall was made of a transluscent mosaic panel, which did not offer much privacy. Ended up doing our business with the bathroom lights off most of the time. While this may not be an issue for some, with 4 adults in the room it was definitely a bit awkward at times.
I travel quite a bit and have been in many hotels. This one is by far the best I have I stayed at. The service of the front desk as well as the willingness of everyone on staff to make your stay the best is what really stands out. It is located in a great spot and I wouldn't hesitate to stay again the next time I'm in NYC.
The room was great, good views, good toiletries, nice lobby and restaurant. Loved it. Hot water was not consistently hot enough.
Booked through Kayak and by some stroke of luck, received a free upgrade to the Thompson Suite upon arrival. If you can, book this room - it is absolutely amazing and without a doubt the most spacious hotel room I've ever seen in New York (or any other major metro area really). The staff was exceptionally helpful and accommodating and the property itself is both charming and luxurious. HIGHLY recommend - I've stayed at both the Thompson Smyth Tribeca and the SIXTY LES (when it was under Thompson management) and this was by leaps and bounds the best. Not necessarily a downside, but be aware that the hotel is ALL the way downtown - this was perfect for my needs, but could be inconvenient if you're not familiar with NYC when booking. Additionally, the elevators were finicky and slow, although the concierge was very helpful in remedying the issue. So all in all, no substantive complaints to speak of!
Nothing ,,,tuelly nothing in this hotel ,,,,its dirty ,old , not well located im sorry nothing i liked I had bed bugs at W downtown , i had to go to the doctor , i was red hittchy and full of spots . When i complaigned to the manager he told me i was wrong they have no bed buggs , they did a pedt control . So my doctor asked for a biopsy that came positive . Shame and they did not want to refund my 3 night this place is terrible , and i had a terrible stay .
Nice bathrooms. Room small but adequate.
Soap Feels like walking thru a discoteque during daytime, sad vibe.
Only the beds. Small bathroom. Small room. Low beds. Small TV. No proper lobby. Had reserved and paid for a King size bed but upon checkin was told there only two full sized beds left. Almost no apology. No trying to make up for it with a credit or free movie etc. Very matter of fact. Wasn't expecting that from W brand.
Has a nice boutique-ish vibe. Good music on the 5th floor lobby. Great location. Excellent staff. The rooms were large, clean and quite modern. No on-premise restaurant but not a biggie - plenty of good restaurants around.

The hotel staff overall was fantastic. The breakfast staff was absolutely outstanding, so pleasant, attentive and professional!! Kudos! N/a
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.
The bed is very comfortable, and the shower is excellent. Can't think of anything.
Location Bed sheets were not cleaned prior to my arrival, and I found out the next day that they do not clean sheets unless you ask. This is TOTALLY unacceptable for ANY hotel, much less one that you rate as 4 stars. Breakfast eggs and sausage were tasteless.
Comfortable bed, nice breakfast. 10 minute wait for an elevator
Great location, near tons of subway stops. Away from the hustle and bustle of midtown.
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.
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.
