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 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.

Adequate Hotel

An adequate hotel for 2-3 night stay on a budget. Very small rooms (even for NYC). English is a second language for nearly all staff. Very courteous staff. Beware the Wi-Fi charge despite the hotel claiming it is free. Free Wi-Fi signals not from the hotel were easy to find.

Good location for the price

I could visit the city, location is near the subway. The room was small and the air conditioning system very noisy. The staff was quite cold. Breakfast, 6/10. Good location, clean room and sufficient overall rate for the hotel

great location, great price, great stay

A decent hotel in NYC can cost a pretty penny, this hotel, on the other hand, was very well priced and exceded my expectations. The staff was very helpful. They allowed me to store my belongings safely before I was able to check in so that we did not miss our show. The room was very clean and the size was similar to a basic room at a Holiday Inn. I would aboslutely stay here again!

perfect location

We went to New York for our honeymoon and we enjoyed our stay. The hotel is quite good if you take into account the price and the location but some of the facilities haven't been renewed for a while, such as the carpets or the bathroom. I would recommend this hotel if you just want a place to sleep and you want it in the city center for an affordable price.

Unbeatable location for the price!

Our days were spent sightseeing and touring. The hotel room was perfect for a nice shower and a quiet restful sleep and fresh coffee and muffins in the morning. Good value for the price and a very convenient location for walking to and from the many "got to see N.Y sights" and famous shops.
