Fabulous position

The location is excellent, within walking distance of most of the tourist spots and only one block from Empire State Building, so if you are in a room at the front of your hotel thats the view you get. Room was spacious by New York standards the only recommendation I would make to hotel is to have a choice of drinks at breakfast and also offer other snacks as a muffin is not to everyones taste. The staff were really helpful and courteous.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

Book a meal at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in Times Square, the food is average but you are 48 floors up and the restaurant revolves so you get spectacular views especially at sunset, pricey but nice.

Wolcott Hotel

Hotel was in the perfect location for a first time visit. The hotel is aged but the room was a good size, clean and the bed very comfortable. Staff on the most part were helpful and friendly. Ice machine available to keep your drinks cool, morning muffin and coffee was delicious and there was no charge for leaving our baggage on the last day once we had checked out. Would definitely recommend and would definitely stay again.

Very convenient for Time Square

Gorgeous reception, chandeliers and columns. Rooms spacious and very clean. Staff friendly, not gushing 10-15 mins walk to Time Square. Penn station 3 mins away Flatiron building literally at end of the road. Staff happy to book trips and arrange Airport return shuttle We really enjoyed our stay. Breakfast, not great but nevertheless a bonus. Would recommend and would return there

Inexpensive, good stay

This hotel is the perfect place to sleep, shower, and keep your clothes. It's clean, the staff is friendly, and it's conveniently located. We really enjoyed our stay here and would easily go back!

gross

Cost over $200 for one night in a tiny, cockroach infested, poorly-lit, musty room with an uncomfortable bed and the charm of a turn-of-the-century haunted nursing home.

an oasis of calm and Olde worlde charm

From the first moment I walked in the door I felt comfortable. Fantastic foyer, friendly helpful staff and on site information desk where you can book discounted shows and various sightseeing options. The room was lovely;spacious, clean and homely. No fridge or coffee machine however. But that is minor. Complimentary muffins and coffee served in the morning. Location top notch, right on 5th Avenue and close to many attractions and subway. Would thoroughly recommend.

Good Place in Great City

Great Place to stay, its an old one but it just what you pay for. Not the most kindest front desk, but a real good staff.
