when we were in nyc this weekend celebrating our anniversary, we stayed at the andaz wall street. we chose to stay down in the financial district because it was far less expensive than staying in midtown.
before our trip, ryan looked through hundreds of hotel options online (god bless his patience). out of all of the hotels that he looked at, the andaz was one of the nicest hotels for a really decent price. it has great customer ratings and reviews on trip advisor, and it is currently ranked number 25 out of 451 hotels in nyc.
our goal was to spend less than $250 per night (which we thought would be difficult in nyc without getting a hotel that was a total dump). we booked a standard king room for $225 and then found the same room listed for $177 on kayak. i contacted the hotel, and they said that they would match the price and give us an additional 20% off! we really couldn't believe that the price of the room came down to just $137. talk about a good deal!
when we checked in on friday night, we were surprised to find out that we were upgraded from a standard king room to a suit. (i'm still not sure how that happened, but i'm not complaining!) the hotel was absolutely wonderful and our room was great. all of the staff were great, and the check-in and check-out process was so simple and easy. all of the rooms at the andaz have 11-foot tall ceilings and are 345 square feet (which is absolutely huge for nyc). we were thrilled with the experience and would definitely stay at an andaz hotel again!
here are a few pictures from our stay . . .
^there was a large flat screen tv on the desk which pivoted so you could see it from anywhere in the room.^
^the desk was large and there was plenty of work space and seating. not sure why you would need two phones in the room, but there were two!^
^and last but not least, who can resist a window seat? it ran the entire length of the window, and we both fit on it.^
