Why This Popular New York Hotel Was Just Named One Of The Best In The City

With so many hotels in New York City, being named the best is an accolade that shouldn't be taken lightly. There's one boutique hotel that won't be found in the cruxes of Midtown Manhattan that has recently claimed the title as best in NYC for 2023 from Travel + Leisure.

The Wall Street Hotel is a family-owned boutique hotel located in the Financial District of Manhattan. A much lesser explored neighborhood in comparison to popular Times Square, Union Square, Greenwich Village, and even those of the Upper West Side, The Wall Street Hotel provides a less commercialized feel than the typical chain hotels found throughout the city, making the service and overall experience feel more intimate and personal. So, what makes The Wall Street Hotel such a standout from the rest? Is it the top-notch dining, the endless amenities, or the comfort of the rooms? Turns out, it's a little bit of everything, all done to simple perfection.

Key details of The Wall Street Hotel

The Wall Street Hotel, a five-star hotel, is located at 88 Wall St, New York, NY 10005. There are 180 rooms to choose from, from standard king-sized rooms to opulent suites, each paired with complimentary WiFi and Bluetooth speakers.

Guests can also choose from three on-site dining options. Lounge on Pearl is an all-day lounge and bar with coffee to keep you abuzz each morning and cocktails to keep the nights alive. La Marchande, run by Michelin-starred Chef John Fraser, is a steakhouse with a French twist, offering fresh cuts of meat and seasonal produce. And for those who simply want to enjoy their spacious rooms, go for in-room dining, available every day from 6:30 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. Guest reviews have noted that they particularly loved the dining at the hotel.

As for your furry friends, there's no need to leave them at home; The Wall Street Hotel is a dog-friendly property, and your pup will even get its own doggy bed and water bowl. There are also bike rentals available to ride around Downtown New York, as well as a 24-hour fitness center.

Even with all of its amenities, what does it matter if the service and hospitality are lacking? Luckily, that's not an issue at the Wall Street Hotel, because guests have overwhelmingly praised how impeccable the service is.

The neighborhood around The Wall Street Hotel

Guest reviews show that part of the charm of this hotel is its incredible location. Conveniently located in Manhattan's Financial District, or FiDi for short, there's plenty to do outside of The Wall Street Hotel that won't require long commutes. For one of the most prominent landmarks in the neighborhood and New York City in general, head to One World Trade Center. Here, you can learn about the dark history of the September 11 attacks, as well as the resilience of New Yorkers and how they were able to build something new from something so aghast.

The Brooklyn Bridge isn't too far away either, so if you're itching to get out of Manhattan, head over to cross the iconic bridge. On the other side, you'll be in Dumbo, another sought-after neighborhood in the city.

The Oculus is just a hop skip away from The Wall Street Hotel. Designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, the Oculus is not only a subway station and an array of shops but also an artistic feast for the eyes.

If you want to get out on the water, you're not too far from one New York City port: South Street Seaport, for a quirky, historic neighborhood stroll. Or, for one of the most notable sites in the city, take a ten-minute ferry to the Statue of Liberty.
