Fantastic hotel at a great location

It couldn't be any better! We came in early, but they were able to give us a room immediately. No... See full review

Henry Roger Wolcott hired John H. Duncan, the same designer who built Grant's Tomb, to build the Wolcott Hotel New York in 1904. The Erlich family purchased the hotel in 1975 and they have been dedicated to its meticulous restoration ever since. Adventurous travelers looking for a comfortable yet elegant home base while they tour New York City will find just what they're looking for at the Wolcott. Rich in history, the hotel is the place where, in 1907, Edith Wharton penned her novel, The Fruit of the Tree, while in residence. As time advanced, celebrities including Buddy Holly, the Everly Brothers and Miles Davis also stayed at the Wolcott. French and Renaissance styles, along with ornate stonework, crystal chandeliers, and marble columns adorn the Wolcott.

Hervorragende Lage

Hervorragende Lage, um wichtige Sehenswürdigkeiten (5th avenue, times square, empire state building) zu Fuss zu erkunden; auch die subway ist gleich um die Ecke. Die Zimmer sind sauber, das Personal freundlich und das Frühstück überdurchschnittlich. Sehr zu empfehlen!

Kann bestens empfohlen werden ohne grosse Erwartungen

1 Woche Christmas Shopping. Wir waren sehr zu frieden, super lage, 2min bis zum Empire, 5min bis zum Macys, überall in der Nähe U-Bahn stationen. Einzig das Frühstück lässt zu wünschen übrig. Es gab nur Muffins, Kaffee und Tee. Jeden Tag wurden die Zimmer gereinigt und die Handtücher gewechselt. Wir gehen auf jeden Fall wieder dort hin.

Super Hotel an sehr guter Lage

Das Wolcott Hotel ist sehr gut. Wir hatten 2 Zimmer gebucht, eines davon war sehr gross und das andere normal. Die Zimmer "hinten raus" sind ruhig und sauber. Morgens gibt es in der Lobby immer gratis Kaffee und sehr gute Muffins. Die Lage beim Empire State Building ist super. In wenigen Minuten ist man mitten im Geschehen. Gute Lage auch zum Shoppen. Dieses Hotel ist nur weiterzuempfehlen.

Kanonläge! Vackert! Prisvärt!

Det var ett riktigt bra hotell med kanonläge, ett stenkast från Empire State Building. Nära Broadway och 5:e Avenyn. Fick ett tyst och bra rum mot innergård. Bra Aircondition. Vacker lobby, som ett miniatyr-Grand Hotell. Tjocka handdukar, bra sprutt i duschen, varm dusch. 2 TV-apparater fördelade på de två rummen :) Goda muffins och kaffe/te på morgonen, utan kostnad. Behaglig atmosfär och korrekt o trevlig personal. Återvänder gärna, rekommenderas varmt!! :D

Für einige Tage New York, ist das Hotel optimal

Die Zimmer sind ein wenig in die Jahre gekommen aber o.k.. Personal sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Die Lage ist fast unschlagbar. Von hier kann ein sehr großer Teil der üblichen Unternehmungen und Besichtigungen fußläufig erledigt werden.
