New Wall Street hotel offers guests “stocks” and “shares”

There will be little doubt where you’ve arrived when you check into Andaz Wall Street. Opening today, the hotel screams New York from Brooklyn-brewed beer served at Bar Seven Five to metal artwork forged in Queens that outfits all 253 rooms.

Andaz also nods more than once to Wall Street. Treatments in the spa are divided into two categories: “Stocks” and “Shares.” The former includes treatments that take more time but “yield a better payoff” (think 90-minute massages), while the latter cater to those with less time who need immediate results. The “Lunch To-Go” comes with a shoe shine, suit freshening and copy of the Wall Street Journal.

Andaz guests even get their own version of a Wall-Street bailout: coffee and mini-bar goodies, WiFi and local calls, are all gratis.
