Bottom Line

Made up of 54 modern, comfortable, guest rooms, Eurostars brings a little style to a typical business hotel in Lower Manhattan, five blocks from the NYSE. But for the price, the hotel doesn't offer much -- consider instead Gild Hall (much swankier); the Millenium Hilton (on-site pool); or the New York Marriott Downtown (just as comfortable, but often cheaper).

Oyster Hotel Review

Location

About five blocks from the NY Stock Exchange on Wall Street and many corporate offices, in a quiet-by-night, business-focused part of Lower Manhattan

Map of Eurostars Wall Street

Surrounded by office buildings and boardered by the East River, the Eurostars Wall Street is on a quiet street, but it is just one block south of the handful of retail shops, upscale restaurants, bars, and free summer music concerts at the South Street Seaport.

In the skyscraper-packed southern tip of Manhattan, Wall Street traders weave between tourists along narrow, historic streets. Home to City Hall, the New York Stock Exchange, the cobblestoned streets of South Street Seaport, Ground Zero, the Brooklyn Bridge, and ferries to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty, Lower Manhattan is a premier tourist destination.

But the area generally shuts down after the Wall Street market closes, and there's scarce activity on the weekends. Shopping is of the bargain-hunting variety -- though the locally loved Century 21 has incredible designer deals -- and there are considerably fewer restaurants and bars than in most of Manhattan. Still, there are ample subway lines that will take you anywhere in the city, and the swank arts and nightlife scenes in SoHo and the Lower East Side are only a $5 to $10 cab ride away.

  • Three blocks from the 2, 3 subway lines; four blocks from the J, M, Z lines; five blocks from the 4, 5 lines -- easy access to anywhere in the city
  • 35-minute subway ride to Central Park
  • 25-minute subway ride to Times Square
  • 25-minute subway ride to the Empire State Building and Rockefeller Center
  • 10-minute walk to the ferry terminal to visit the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island
  • 35-minute subway ride to the American Museum of Natural History
  • 40-minute subway ride to the Metropolitan Museum of Art (the "Met") and a 25-minute subway ride to the Museum of Modern Art (the "MoMA")

Airport Transportation

About 30 to 90 minutes from three airports

New York has three nearby airports: JFK, LaGuardia, and Newark (in New Jersey). Getting to town from JFK or LaGuardia is usually more convenient than getting there from Newark, but travel times are heavily dependent on the time of day and traffic conditions. From JFK, a taxi to anywhere in Manhattan costs a flat rate of $45 and takes around an hour in average conditions. From LaGuardia, a metered cab ride to midtown Manhattan costs about $40 and can take 30 minutes if traffic is light, three times that if it's bad. Rides from Newark cost at least $40 (plus tolls) and can take more than 90 minutes. It's customary to tip your driver 15 to 25 percent.

Those looking to save some cash can use the privately run shuttle buses that are available at all three airports for about $14 per person. For more information on the shuttles, go to Super Shuttle or New York Airport Service. Public transit is also available for as little as $7 per person, but travel can take up to two hours and involve a lot of lugging bags up and down stairways.
