Hello there! We recently had the pleasure of experiencing Placemakr Wall Street in New York City. Let me tell you, this place is the real deal! From the incredible views of the river to the awesome arcade games and pool table, this place truly has it all.
Let’s start with the view. It was absolutely amazing! We had so much fun watching the helicopters flying by. It was definitely a sight to see. And can we talk about the amount of space in this place? It was ridiculous! We had plenty of room to spread out and relax.
The kitchen was also a major highlight for us. We were pleasantly surprised by how nice it was. The fridge was spacious and the overall kitchen area was top-notch. We could definitely picture ourselves cooking up a storm in there.
The common areas were also really cool. We could easily see ourselves working and living from here effectively. The lobby had tables with plugs, making it a great place to get some work done. The mini desks with USB built-in were a nice touch as well. We also loved the in-building laundry, which was wonderful when traveling with the family.
The arcade games and pool table were a nice touch as well, and they were free! Our teen daughter loved playing the games and we all had a blast hanging out in the common areas.
I cannot brag enough about this location and the view. Location, location location is the old mantra and every window here has a great view. There is so much activity going around this is the kind of place I could see picture paying just to have this view. I’ve been to other cities and have seen their tallest buildings that tourists can look at being shorter than this. This is an instagramable type of view with the kind of view that kids of all ages will love.
The location is great too. It’s easy to walk to everything downtown and each floor has different alcoves and table areas to sit. The common kitchen was a cute touch too, perfect for hosting a big party.
The terrace was a nice place to relax and all of the additional amenities were a nice add-on. The bathrooms were also a highlight for us. The size of the bathrooms was really nice, especially the one with a tub. It was easy enough to bathe our teen daughter, which can be a challenge in some Manhattan hotels.
Overall, we felt like we were staying in a place you see on TV shows. This is the kind of destination where you’re staying in the place to stay in the place and not just using it as a home base for touring around. It’s perfect for a long-term stay when you need a central base. Having a kitchen makes it much more economical too, so you can handle breakfast and dinner in the apartment and enjoy lunch out.
The people at the front desk were really nice too, and the 24-hour service was a nice touch. If you want to know how it feels to live in Manhattan for a week, this is definitely the place to be.
We could also see this being great for two couples with young kids who want to split the cost and lead the high life. This also saves the budget a ton when you can have that central base to crash and make breakfast every morning. It’s right off the highway too so it’s an easy uber right straight from the property.
We had such a great time and would definitely recommend Placemakr Wall Street to anyone looking for a great place to stay in New York City.
