Nothing to show.
At this point, the Conrad is Downtown's quintessential hotel experience. It's located perfectly, in Battery Park City, just off the Hudson River, adjacent to the Financial Center/Brookfield Place, and just across the street from the World Trade Center, so it's pretty much in the area of all of Downtown's prime attractions. As for my personal experience...I was here in the spring of 2017, but my most recent visit in 2022 stood out to me much further than the previous one. Well, I got to New York from DC at around 10:30pm, and my relatives (who live in Queens) gave me a ride to the Conrad. The first thing to notice walking in is the grand, GRAND atrium lobby. It's all marble and beautiful steps and 15-story ceilings, with a gigantic purple mural and a skylight that looks up towards the Freedom Tower. The main lobby is one floor up from the entrance (seems to be a standard across Conrad hotels, as I don't recall visiting one where the lobby was just off the entrance), reachable by escalator. Check in was smooth, and lasted just over a minute. After that, I was ushered up to my room, disappointingly a FLOOR above the lobby... but it was fine, because I had booked a river view suite and the view would have to be nice regardless. And that brings me to my next point: this is an all-suite hotel, which is fabulous to me. However, you shouldn't reserve a room at the Conrad expecting your normal suite layout. In fact, to me the layout was quite odd, but it wasn't even a bad thing, just a tad inconvenient if I weren't traveling solo (which, thank goodness, I was). The door to the suite opens straight into this living room/den type setup, quite bare-boned honestly if you ask me, especially considering there are no windows in this part of the suite. I didn't really use this area during my stay. Then there's a marble hallway of sorts that divides the living room from the bedroom, and that's where the minibar cabinets are. Unfortunately, that hallway also leads straight into the shower stall, as well as the main bathroom space with the sink and toilet. So if you're traveling with company, you need to ensure to steer clear of that hallway when one of you takes a shower. The bedroom is the only room in the suite that gets actual natural light, which, considering the alternative, was quite appropriate to me. Other than the weird layout, I found the actual components of the suite to be amazing. The decor was minimalistic and Japanese-inspired, something I appreciate across all the hotels in Conrad's portfolio. The bed was among the most comfortable I've experienced. The view was great, from morning till night, with equally beautiful dawns and dusks on the Hudson River. The minibar was stocked--a rarity since COVID hit. There was a cool water filtration system in one of the hallway cabinets, though I only found out on the last day. I also appreciated that the hallway hosted a second sink. Oh, and the marble shower was like a spa. There's a frosted glass window inside to receive indirect natural light from the bedroom, and the rain-shower head fastened to the ceiling gave off perfect water pressure. The one lacking aspect here was a bathtub, but honestly most Conrad hotels don't offer bathtubs in the rooms, save for the most exclusive suites, so I wasn't really disappointed or anything. The food at the hotel restaurant, ATRIO, is somewhat Mediterranean-inspired, and serves delicious food in a nice ambient setting just off the lobby. I believe I tried a nice pasta dish here, but what really wowed me was the dessert, a chocolate creme brûlée with orange. I ordered that every day until I left. Room service breakfast from the restaurant was nice, too, with a hearty American-style breakfast of toast, sausage, eggs and home-fries that left you full and satisfied. Oh, and the croissants are delicious too (especially the chocolate ones). It's a shame that every time I seem to stay at the Conrad, the rooftop is closed for the season, so I never got to experience that, though it seems like such a nice place to be, with prime river and city views. The hotel's staff were mostly pleasant, especially the folks over at room service. There were some people with a slightly sharp tongue on my last day before/while checking out, but overall I was happy with the service here. Overall, for $500/night, I'd say this is one of the nicest deals you can get in Downtown. Especially if you're someone that focuses on space, comfort, and relaxation. $500 for a five-star hotel in Manhattan is quite hard to find, honestly, so I'd say run with this place, and you won't regret it. (Granted, I've not stayed over at the Four Seasons, but after my experience here, I might not need to.)
This is a fantastic hotel. The service is wonderful. The front desk staff is amazing. They are kind, knowledgeable and very efficient. The rooms are immaculate and very spacious. Housekeeping is great and the room was promptly refreshed daily. The location is fabulous to wall street, the village and you can take a taxi anywhere. The view of the Hudson River is excellent. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to New York City.
Stayed two weeks at Conrad, loved it. I visited twice and stayed in different rooms both times. Staffs are awesome. Inside the room, have plenty of space - hall-bar & bedroom separately, nice couch. A perfect suite. You will see different & positive vibe, the moment you enter inside the rooms. Loved it !
