Though a Four Seasons was teased and a W has been under construction forever, it's the World Center Hotel that's the first new FiDi inn to open with prime pit views. Of course ground zero won't look like that forever, which is why the 169-room hotel's developers decided to include big windows and outdoor spaces featuring "front-row seats" of the World Trade Center site. Until then there's reach-out-and-touch-it proximity to the disappearing Deutsche Bank Building and extra-thick glass to muffle construction noise. Check out the photo galleries linked below for a complete look at the most interesting addition to the Downtown hotel scene since Trump Soho welcomed its first combover.
