We have stayed here several times because of it's proximity to my son AND they are pet friendly (we have a 47 pound dog). This trip I was solo. The hotels, rooms, and bathrooms have a unique cool vibe/warm decor. Great bed linens (crisp linens and wonderful quality pillows). In a quiet area and walkable to Southstreet Seaport (great food anytime of day)( 5 minute walk), the 9/11 Memorial (10 minute walk), Battery Park (10-15 minute walk), ChinaTown and Little Italy (20 minute walk), SoHo (20-30 minutes). Close to many subway stations (easy to get to a Broadway show) and super easy to get an Uber (took one to the US Open tennis tournament). The staff treats you like family and very attentive. Prosecco time after 3:00 (they hand you a glass when you come in). A total value for a NYC hotel (especially if you book way ahead).
