World Center Hotel Offers Hotel Rooms With A Ground Zero View
Rates start at $199 for rooms at the hotel, a very reasonable price for New York City. Some rooms have been made into corporate apartments for extended stays. There is a private restaurant and club on the 20th floor. Guests have complimentary access to the View of the World Terrace Club which has views of the Hudson River and rising National 9/11 Memorial & Museum and Freedom Tower. This setting offers year-round indoor/outdoor dining terrace, a bar with windows overlooking downtown New York and a lounge area. There are also work stations and meeting rooms which can be reserved. City residents can become a member of the club.
Not everyone is a fan of the new hotel, some question why you would want to be close to a site where so many people lost their lives. But millions of tourists visit the site each year and the hotel's unique position offers better views of the rebuilding.
