New York City is synonymous with fashion, and Lower Manhattan is home to hundreds of retailers – including some of the city’s most iconic brands – all within one square mile. When you stay in one of our neighborhood’s 32 hotels, all of a sudden the ‘drop’ in ‘shop til you drop’ means dropping your purchases off at your nearby hotel and heading back out for more.
Be the early (fashionable) bird | Century 21
Start your shopping at Century 21, which opens as early as 7:45am Monday through Friday. Here you’ll find top designer clothes at affordable prices, including women’s shoes and handbags, men’s custom suits and the kind of fashion pieces that will make your friends’ jaws drop when you get back home.
Marvel at this architectural (and shopping) delight | Westfield WTC
Walk less than 300 ft, and you’ll arrive at Westfield World Trade Center, home to 100+ shops and eateries, including Apple, Hugo Boss, Kate Spade New York, and Stuart Weizman to name a few. Although it is located underground, you can’t miss the entrance. This shopping experience is housed inside of one of New York City’s most iconic new structures: The Oculus, designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava. Hungry for lunch? Westfield is home to Eataly NYC Downtown and Epicerie Boulud, among many other restaurants and cafes.
Treat yourself | Brookfield Place
Provided you don’t need to drop your purchases off at your hotel, stay underground and head over to Brookfield Place, yet another major local shopping destination Downtown. Located on the Hudson River, this luxury complex is home to international fashion brands like Hermès, Bottega Veneta, Burberry, Diane von Furstenberg, Theory, Vince, and an 85,000 square-foot Saks Fifth Avenue Downtown. For lunch, dinner, or an afternoon snack, your options at Brookfield Place includes Michelin-starred L’Appart, French marketplace Le District, French restaurant Beaubourg, or Hudson Eats – a collection of 14 chef-driven grab-and-go eateries.
Discover the Seaport District
Wander your way across toward the East River where you’ll find the Seaport District – yet another premiere shopping and dining destination in Lower Manhattan. Explore the small boutiques set on cobblestone streets like Bowne & Co. Stationers, a quaint stationery store with hand-printed cards made on site, Christian Benner custom clothing, DITA Eyewear or SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker, the first permanent contemporary-wear boutique from one of the most quintessential New Yorkers and fashionistas in the city. Set to open in Fall 2018, 10 Corso Como, is an Italian concept shop (and living magazine) founded by former Fashion Editor and Publisher Carla Sozzani in Milan. It is here that art, fashion, music, lifestyle and food will come together in one massive retail space, and makes the Seaport District one of New York City’s fashion hot spots.
