During a cold winter day in February, I noticed that I didn’t have any travel plans for the next few weekends. So, of course I looked at travel deals and noticed that the Andaz Wall Street had special rates of $150 per night various weekends in February. A staycation? Why, yes, please!
The Andaz is literally on Wall Street, in the Financial District of Lower Manhattan. We were greeted warmly, and checked in. Rather than a single welcome glass of wine, this Andaz has a nightly wine hour, similar to what the Kimpton Hotels are known for – except this wine hour began at 6pm. Of course, as with all Andaz hotels, the snacks and non-alcoholic beverages in the room mini-bar are complimentary.
Our room was lovely. We were upgraded to what is called an Andaz Large King room, a 450 square foot room with a walk-in bath/shower.
When I walked in the door, on the left was a sink area, and a toilet in a separate room.
To the right, was the walk-in bath/bed shower room. This was pretty amazing!
I couldn’t help but notice the massive stand-alone closet between the bathroom and bedroom areas. To my surprise, I discovered that it rotates!
The bedroom area was quite large (especially by New York City standards) and had a “loft” feel to it. And, there was a nice welcome letter waiting on the table.
There was a nice view of downtown Manhattan:
Even though I live in New York City and work downtown, I do not spend a lot of time in the Wall Street area.
We had a great time. After the wine hour, we went to a pub restaurant on Stone Street for dinner. Sunday, we took in a museum and some local historical sites, including the famous Wall Street Bull!
We finished our short vacation in lower Manhattan with a sumptuous lunch at Andaz’ restaurant, Dina Rata.
Would I return? Absolutely!
