Just off Lower Manhattan's Financial District, and dramatically overlooking Ground Zero and the Freedom Tower, the W New York - Downtown offers a relaxing sanctuary in the midst of the gritty urban business neighbourhood. Epitomising Manhattan sophistication infused with New York energy, the hotel successfully combines downtown style with a powerful 9/11 connection. It's also one of New York's few waterside hotels, right by the Hudson River Promenade and the Statue of Liberty Ferry, providing an appealing alternative to the frenetic rush of midtown Manhattan.
Of the glass and limestone building's 58 floors, the hotel occupies levels 1-23, while the upper levels of the elegant prismatic tower house the Residences -- over 200 W-branded for-sale apartments and condominiums, both furnished and unfurnished. The idea is to take the W Brand into the increasingly popular concept of combined hotel and residential living. On the 57th floor, mainly for the use of the Residences occupants, there is a smart restaurant with a roof garden and observation deck, commanding stunning views of the Harbour and Hudson River.
To reach the hotel reception desk, you pass through the black glass entrance and take the lift to the fifth floor lobby. Here you will immediately be struck by the breathtaking Anemone Chandelier illuminating the two-storey space, which is bridged by an arch of over 1,000 individually-hung droplets of light, wired with fibre-optic projectors. Lighting plays a key role in the innovative design concept for the public spaces, which is based on a ripple effect shown in striking unilinear forms, with the express intention of sending a wave of energy through the New York downtown district.
Most of the lobby is taken up by one of the most celebrated features of the hotel, the Living Room Bar and Terrace, which is the focus of the hotel's activity, and has become the place to be seen in downtown New York. Its most striking feature is the undulating Lamella ceiling, with its thousands of tiny LED lights recessed inside the structure, creating a soaring wave effect. This effect is reflected and enhanced in the black polished granite flooring.
The rippling Lamella ceiling extends out on to the spectacular wrap-around terrace, overlooking the new One World Trade Center, with indoor and outdoor bars serving imaginative cocktails. Scattered around are pewter-coloured couches, blending sleek modern design with the utmost comfort. A live DJ is in action here on Wednesdays and Fridays, enhancing the party mood.
Apart from the Living Room, the place to eat and drink is the BLT Bar & Grill, which extends over two floors and recreates the classic American tavern for the downtown scene. Overall, the hotel offers the ultimate in concierge service with its motto of Whatever/Whenever, guaranteeing that nothing you ask for will ever be too much. The service extends to a complimentary Acura car service, and even to a programme for pets -- they will even bake a cake for your pet's birthday.
