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.

Great for Price/Location

This was a a decent hotel. It was very affordable and close to everything in Midtown. You are a block behind the Empire State Building. The rooms were a little small. The staff was friendly. The hotel does have a vintage feel to it.

winter weekend

Room was much smaller than expected, listed as a suite with sofa bed- that turned out to be a trundle. Bathroom old and shower didn't work well - no cold water from shower head and tub drained very slowly. TV's old with poor reception. Very high price for WIFI use

OK, not great, centrally located

Very close to Empire State Building. Long walk to Times Square. Safe neighborhood - felt comfortable as lone female walking around at night. Annoyed that had to pay extra for internet to work in room. Co-worker's room didn't even have a desk - had to work on the bed! Nice to have muffins and coffee in the morning, but everyone sat around in the regular lobby chairs balancing plates and cups on their laps trying to eat - would be nice to have an actual eating area with tables, or at least more coffee/end tables. Room decor rather tired and worn, window sill tile grout in shower had black mildew. Teeny slow elevators. Staff didn't seem very happy to be there at all. But overall everything just OK for the price.

Good Location

I wanted a place really just to sleep! I came for NYC, and all what it offered, so I looked for something not so expensive, safe, and good location. I found it all here!

Just fine

The lobby is BEAUTIFUL! The room was VERY clean but its time for new carpet and definitely updated bedding. I would call it a Euro-style hotel with a coffee/muffin they call breakfast. I think that the Holiday Inn Express is a better choice for the American traveller.

Good value

The price was right for a hotel in Manhatten. Close to everything. Some rooms small and air conditioners could be improved (window). I traveled with two other couples. Our air conditioner was noisy but very effective. Other couples air conditioners were not effective and their rooms were smaller than ours.

Quiet, clean, comfortable

When in Manhattan, we're only in our room when we sleep and shower. Therefore, we want a clean, quiet, comfortable room. We got that at the Hotel Wolcott. It's a basic place with basic service. The only ding is that we had ordered a room fridge a week before we arrived, and they didn't have any available when we checked in. But it turned out we didn't need it anyway. If you want a romantic getaway, this isn't the place. But it met our purposes, and we'd stay again.

Great location

Spent only one night in the Hotel, but was great. Liked the old fashion atmosphere and the great location. The bathroom probably needs some restyling and definitely the showers need to be replaced with something working, as waiting for the hot water to come out was not that funny, in mid january. The front desk staff needs sometimes to be reminded about how to be friendly to guests, but overall it was a good deal.
