Nothing Extra

Location was great. Close to midtown locations. Bed was high in the middle and sounds from hall were very loud. Door in bedroom was next to the hall and people talking woke us up every morning. Tub surface was peeling. Room was clean, but no extra amenities. Probably wouldn't stay here again.

Take Ear Plugs!

The only complaint about this hotel is the noise at night. Lorries, cars, taxis, dust carts, and music until 3am from the bar down the street. Everything else about the hotel was absolutely fine - including the free hot drinks and muffins provided by the hotel each morning. My advice would be to take ear plugs, as the city that never sleeps, tries to make sure that you don't sleep either!

Don't take the subway - you never know what you'll discover enroute to your destination.

Good value and good location

The hotel was an okay standard, perhaps a little bit tired. It was really clean and tidy and the staff were great. There is free coffee and muffins for breakfast which was a nice touch and unexpected. In terms of location it was great for a first trip- close to all of the sights - empire state building, times square & walk able distance to central park, however not great if you want to find somewhere good to go for a drink in the evening, we usually had to get a cab or the subway over to Greenwich. Overal though a really good value for money.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

This hotel is really close to the empire state building. Try to get there as early in the morning as possible as it means beating the queue which can be up to 5 hours sometimes!

good value

Staff were not really very welcoming or helpful. A smile costs nothing after all. The reception area is beautiful and worth popping in just for a look. We had a junior suite which was ideal for the three of us.The cleaning staff were very friendly and kept the room very tidy and clean, top marks to them. Some nice bars close by.Bit of a,walk to Times Square, so wear low heals. Penn station is only a short distance from the hotel so you can get the train any where and its very cheap. Overall I would stay there again, but please some one get the staff to smile and be more helpful.

Great location

This hotel was a bit above average, if a little pricey. Room was small. Enjoyed coffee and muffins in the morning. Concierge very helpful.

Old but good for the price

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 Mainly outdated stuff.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

Optimum location and friendly staff

The room appearance was clean and comfortable considerable the age of the hotel. There is a need for pest control with a few small roaches noted. New carpeting would help in the hotel's face lift. Overall, wonderful stay for a short getaway weekend.

Hotel Wolcott For New Year

Room was smaller than in the photos on the hotel web site. No view from window as there was an air conditioner placed in it. Overall room was clean but next time would request a room change.

Good Budget Hotel for Sightseeing

Booked as a budget hotel as all we needed was a base as if your in New York you won't have time to be in your Hotel. It delivered a no frills experience which was all we expected. Customer Service varied dramatically based on which colleague you dealt with, some really great - others didn't even look at you when talking. Prior to going my wife requested a room with Empire State view as advertised on their website and pleasingly got an immediate response confirming they would look into it, dissapointed when arriving to a room with a view of next doors brickwork. Coffee and muffins in the morning were great as was the ability to store your luggage after checkout and the little essentials shop on site had a really friendly colleague working in it. Be wary of the discounted theatre tickets as they're still much cheaper in TKTS in Times Square if u can wait till the last minute. Free Wi-Fi would be a great bonus.
