Andaz Wall Street

Jun 1, 2010
2010 / June 2010

Arrival/Check-in: Check-in at Andaz Wall Street is a quick and unique process. Instead of waiting for me to approach them at a front desk, the hosts greeted me with an electronic clipboard, and I was checked in and my credit card swiped in a matter of minutes. This was convenient given that I was attending Global Traveler’s awards ceremony and I didn’t have time to wait in any lines. Luggage was delivered to my room promptly. (30/30)

Guest Quarters: When I arrived at my corner suite, I was most impressed with the layout and the way it was sectioned off into specific areas. The first section of the suite was a TV/sitting room, perfect for dining and lounging with guests. The center was a dressing area and a very large black marble bathroom, complete with a rain shower and a separate, large, square-shaped soaking tub. At the far end of the suite was a king bed and a unit that served as a desk, vanity table and flat-screen TV. The room was comfortable and, most important, functional. The décor was modern, with oak floors and large windows overlooking the Wall Street area. One of my favorite features was the blackout shade that could be operated by a button next to the bed. My suite was equipped with two 42-inch LCD TVs, a Geneva Sound System with iPod dock, a complimentary minibar with snacks and non-alcoholic beverages and free wireless Internet. (28/30)

Service/Amenities: Service was accommodating and the staff was eager to please. As the hotel had only been open for a week, in-room dining was not available after 9 p.m. The snacks and bottled water in the room, however, were complimentary, and to make up for the inconvenience, the hotel offered me complimentary room service for breakfast. I was very pleased with the compensation, especially since I hadn’t even made a fuss over the inability to order room service at 11 p.m. (39/40)

The Experience: This brand-new property is worth checking into for business or leisure travel.

Total Score: 97/100

Former 1940s-Era Italian Bank Transformed Into Rome EDITION Hotel

It is hard to resist the pleasures of Rome, a city filled with world-renowned paintings; sculptures; thousands of colorful cafés; and hundreds of ancient buildings still standing and often used as offices, homes and museums. Certainly, Rome is the cradle from which all that is best about Italy emerged. It is difficult to open a new hotel in Rome without connecting it to the city’s history, art and culinary tradition. When Rome EDITION opened last year, it was the perfect fit for a city that lives and breathes all things extraordinary.

Hôtel des Grands Voyageurs Review

It’s often declared Paris’ Left Bank, or La Rive Gauche, the local side of the Seine —  where bohemian and chic are used superfluously, albeit with some veracity. It only makes sense that travelers looking to stay on the Left Bank would seek as local an accommodation as possible — Hôtel des Grands Voyageurs is the new kid on the block and certainly delivers this with its design following the likes of a Parisian art collectors’ residence.
