Financial District Hotels
The Beekman, A Thompson Hotel
123 Nassau St., Financial District
A Queen Anne building which dates back to the Gilded Age as well as being one of the city's first skyscrapers, The Beekman has good bones.
15 Gold St., Financial District
This Thompson Street hotel has a lot more personality than you’ll generally otherwise find in the Financial District, as it’s funnily-enough, inspired by an Aspen country house (and more specifically, it's designed by Jim Walrod). The lobby feels a bit like a ski lodge, there’s really good art on the walls, and the beds are topped with tartan blankets. Though its location is a little out of the way if you’re not planning on spending a majority of your time downtown, it’s not that deep into the Financial District and its rates are good for the quality.
The Ritz-Carlton Battery Park City (Closed)
2 West St., Financial District
This is a Ritz through and through with all the lavish amenities you’d expect—including sweeping views of New Jersey and the Statue of Liberty. It’s primarily a business hotel as it services the Financial District, which means it’s nice and sleepy on the weekends. There’s a really nice spa, a full-service gym, and they have Ritz Kids, a partnership with Jean-Michel Cousteau's Ocean Futures Society, an interactive program that teaches little ones how to be good stewards of the environment.
Andaz Wall Street
75 Wall St., Financial District
Sleek and modern, this spot is packed out with amenities, including a huge spa, a 24-hour gym, an outdoor beer garden in the summer, and meeting rooms galore. Said meeting rooms make sense because it’s buried deep in the Financial District, which means it bustles with business travelers during the week. It’s not particularly busy over weekends, which means you can get really great rates for the size and quality of the rooms.
