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 since been dedicated to its meticulous restoration. Adventurous travelers looking for a comfortable yet elegant home base while they tour New York City should consider staying at the Wolcott. Rich in history, if the walls could talk they would relate marvelous stories such as when, 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 in rooms here. French and Renaissance styles and ornate stonework adorn the Wolcott and upon entering the lobby look up to see crystal chandeliers and marble columns.
