When choosing a base in the Big Apple, the Financial District might not spring to mind. But with its glamorous guestrooms, elevated dining options and next-level service, The Wall Street Hotel offers a chic and comfortable home away from home in Lower Manhattan.
Where is The Wall Street Hotel?
The Wall Street Hotel is on Wall Street, between Pearl and Water streets, in the Financial District of Lower Manhattan in New York City. Depending on traffic, it’s just under an hour’s cab ride from JFK Airport, 30 minutes from LaGuardia Airport or about 40 minutes from Newark Airport.
What’s near The Wall Street Hotel?
Financial District (FiDi) neighbourhood landmarks the September 11 Memorial & Museum, New York Stock Exchange and the Charging Bull statue are all within a 10-minute walk. A five-minute stroll away is the South Street Seaport, home to restaurants, shops and live-music venues. The free Staten Island Ferry leaves from Whitehall Terminal, which you can reach on foot in under 10 minutes. The Wall Street subway station is also close by, offering easy access to the rest of the city.
The 180 luxurious, residential-inspired rooms and suites are decked out in soothing blues, greys and creams with cashmere throws on the beds, heated bathroom floors and walls adorned with a commissioned collection of contemporary Australian First Nations artworks. Room sizes range from 26 square metres up to 115 square metres – this option combines three suites via a private entry vestibule for larger groups or extended family stays. The corner Carnegie Suite features a flickering faux fireplace and views of New York Harbor.
Restaurants and bar
The Lounge On Pearl is an elegant all-day lounge and bar decorated with chic Art Deco-inspired flair (velvet-draped double-height windows, custom-made wallpaper depicting the Manhattan skyline, animal-print sofas and saturated jewel tones). It makes a sophisticated spot for sipping morning coffee or evening cocktails. La Marchande is the hotel’s modern take on a French brasserie and has an elegant but laid-back vibe. Enjoy a seafood tower from the raw bar or miso-basted Ora King Salmon while snuggled in a plush booth or perched on a banquette. On the 15th floor, another bar with a wraparound rooftop terrace overlooks the East River.
The property, owned by Australian pearl producers the Paspaley family, is partnered with the Billion Oyster Project – a non-profit organisation working to restore the oyster reefs of New York Harbor. Reusable water bottles and custom-designed oyster-inspired gifts are available for purchase, with proceeds going to the project, and there’s also an option to donate at checkout.
Travel for work
Guest services offers a mobile office option, with a printer, copier, scanner, a full suite of cables, international adapters, plus courier and mailing services, all brought to your room.
The hotel has a 24-hour fitness centre featuring Peloton Bikes and guest services can arrange in-room massages, express facials and beauty treatments from a curated list of preferred local providers.
