Proudly celebrating its 110th anniversary in March 2014, The Hotel Wolcott is located in the center of tourist New York; three blocks south of the Empire State Building on 31st Street between 5th Ave. & Broadway. Walkable to many attractions including the United Nations, Macy's, Chelsea, Circle Line Boat Cruise, Flatiron, Meatpacking and Highline neighborhoods, Broadway theater district, Times Square and all public transportation. The Wolcott has been offering clean comfortable modern accommodations in an old world atmosphere at reasonable prices since 1904. In fact the lobby and many of the guest rooms still retain their original architectural detailing. The Hotel has been written about in many domestic and international guides.

Classic Hotel Find

The Wolcott Hotel is a delight. The staff is very helpful, rooms are very clean, bright and cheery, and its location is wonderful, only blocks from New York Penn Station, several restuarants nearby.

New York Trip

The front desk gentleman was less than friendly when we checked in and became surly with my husband from start to finish - we did not need this after a 5 hour flight. This is our 6th time staying at the hotel and have always had a good experience, but a few times it's been dicey with front desk personnel.

Old but good for the price

Fine, not the cleanest place but not too bad. Mainly outdated stuff. Great price for the location.

Great location

We were visting NY for two days and looking for an affordable hotel in a decent location. Wolcott is superbly located right in the heart of Manhattan, close to Empire State and Times Square. Also very close to the subway stations. But certainly not for those looking for a luxurious stay.

couples get away

ideal location , 2 blocks from statue of liberty and just off 5th ave.we up graded to a junior suite and well worth the extra. staff always very friendly and helpful. the free muffins and tea or coffee in the morning were a treat. we stayed in N.Y last summer in an apartment but further downtown, here we found you were no more than 10 to 15 mins walk to all main attractions, we really enjoyed walk over Brooklyn bridge and the highline, would stay here again.

Old Hotel with Charm

Dated hotel was charming. That said, the room near the elevator is smaller than the other rooms on the floor. Bathroom sink was the tiniest I've ever seen; difficult to use. Water temp. in shower hard to control (either boiling hot or fridged cold.). Maids were friendly. Front desk staff never asked how my room was; seems they do not care. The breakfast was charming.......get there early to avoid the crowds. Hotel centrally located. Easy walk to everywhere.

Clean and Quiet, Near Penn Station

I enjoyed staying in an old hotel with an ornate lobby and a friendly staff. My room was small, but comfortable. The location, near Penn Station, was perfect for this trip.

Great location but serious water problem

The water temperature in the shower is VERY dangerous as it goes from ice cold to scalding hot (without changing the setting) - hot enough to cause serious burns! The hot temperature could cause serious injury to someone unable to move out of the shower spray such as an elderly person or child. The hotel staff were less than receptive when we voiced our concerns. The bathroom sink is about the size of a sink in an airplane lavatory so it is very difficult to use without getting water everywhere. That said, this hotel is in a great location, it is clean and the beds were comfortable.

A walking food tour of Greenwich village was a highlight and although it is a long walk from this hotel, we did it in about 30 minutes.
