an intimate “home away from home” style boutique hotel

Peta Lorraine B.: “We stayed at the Casablanca Hotel by the Library Collection. Located in Times Square and was very close to everything. I would recommend a room at the rear of the property as our suite was at the front and quite noisy. Our friends were in the rear and didn’t have any noise problems.”

Experience stunning design and unrivaled comfort

Mary H.:  Andaz Bryant park or Park Hyatt I can recommend!”

Gert van L.: ” Love this hotel with the complimentary happy wine hour to meet other guests!”

Steps away from lower Manhattan’s waterfront, shops, exciting restaurant scene, ferry, and subway hubs, easily explore the city then return home to your spacious, lofty, sun-filled room at Andaz Wall Street.
Or choose to stay in and enjoy modern design features, global cuisine, and a social 24-hour lobby with complimentary coffee and snacks throughout the day and evening wine service.

When some big chains venture into the boutique-hotel territory, the result is basically the same old chain hotel, with an extra helping of funky plastic furniture. Not so with the Hyatt group’s Andaz sub-brand. The hotels under the Andaz banner are about more than just design; they’re boutique in philosophy as well, each one of them intensely localized — the London and West Hollywood outposts are as different as their respective cities, and a hotel doesn’t get much more Lower Manhattan than the Andaz Wall Street.

The casual deskless check-in sets the tone for a stay that’s not exactly typical. Today’s Wall Street leaves the traditional Gotham to look to Midtown, and the Andaz, designed by New York’s own Rockwell Group, follows suit. You can expect the glossy finishes and lavish fittings of a luxury hotel that’s located at the heart of the financial world, but there’s also a healthy dose of downtown hipster funk, from the rough brick walls in the bedrooms to the impeccably sourced farm-fresh cuisine. And underneath it all is a high-end hotel by a group that certainly knows high-end — the bathrooms, for example, are as luxurious as those in any Park or Grand Hyatt, just a little sexier, in patented Manhattan black-on-black.

Its public spaces are no less impressive, including the Andaz Kitchen + Bar, whose menu ranges from traditional Italian and classic American dishes to flavors from the Caribbean and Southeast Asia — all in an open-plan space that’s a magnet for Downtown social life, and which, in summer months, is joined by a beer garden, to further blur the dividing line where the hotel ends and the city begins.

The Bar Downstairs and Kitchen is a neighborhood-centric restaurant on 5th Avenue serving delicious foods and cocktails. The menu experience offers guests the opportunity to indulge in seasonal foods sourced from farmers and purveyors in New York. For a change of pace, visit them in the evenings to enjoy premium cocktails, fine wines, beer, and eclectic shared plates.

Times Square area is very close to the port

Robin S.: “Slomka Marriott Marquis in Times Square is very nice but pricey. But always stay in the Times Square area as it’s very close to the port.”

Robin Richards M.:   We stayed at the Marriott Marquis on Time Square. Short Uber/Lift to Port.”

The energy of Manhattan is iconic and the New York Marriott Marquis, a vibrant fixture of Times Square, brilliantly captures the city’s spirit in modern style.

Della J.; “Embassy Suites has a shuttle company come for cruisers, that you sign up with concierge at check-in. Free hot breakfast, Ihop and SammyJ restaurants next door, and a big mall across the street. They also have a free shuttle from the airport. (we used it to go back to the airport and take a train into Manhattan for the day. We also took free Staten Island ferry back and forth, to go past Statue of Liberty).”

They’re off I-95, a half-mile from The Mills at Jersey Gardens. Newark Liberty International Airport is less than five miles away and Cape Liberty Cruise Port can be reached in 20 minutes – their courtesy shuttle service will take you both ways.

If you fly into Newark Airport (EWR) there are many good hotels surrounding the airport with free shuttles from the airport to the hotel and a few with shuttles to the port (Doubletree, Embassy Suites are 2). Uber/Lyft is the best transportation to the port and only a 10-15 minute ride. Suggestions: Doubletree, Embassy Suites, Crowne Plaza, Fairfield Inn & Suites, Holiday Inn, and Hilton all right around EWR.
If you’re flying into LaGuardia airport but want to be closer to the port than staying in Manhattan, check out hotels in Jersey City that are along the Hudson River with views of Manhattan. Hyatt Regency in Jersey City is in the area you’d want to be in. There’s light rail and train service into NYC from Jersey City and it’s about 15 minute Uber/Lyft ride from the hotel to the port. You can also get to the Statue of Liberty from the NJ side of the Hudson River not far from the upscale hotels in the Jersey City area.
