Me and my partner stayed at the Wolcott Hotel for my Partners 50th Birthday. We stayed for 7 nights, the staff were friendly and polite, the breakfast muffins and coffee were a welcomed treat. Our room was on the 12th floor with a fantastic view of the Empire State Building. The room was large and spacious, clean and was serviced... More

this hotel was a little disappointing. The lobby is beautiful and it was built over 100 years ago. the rooms let it down, our suite was actually what had been a single and a double room made in to one, I guess because the single room had no bathroom. Although there was space the configuration made it awkward, plus it... More

When I checked in I inquired as to whether there was a refrigerator in the room. The clerk said, "no there isn't but I can have one delivered". Two minutes after I reached the room there was a knock on the door and there was a man carrying a refrigerator who plugged it in and checked that it was working... More

My mother and I stayed at The Wolcott for three nights in July, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay very much! Check-in was quick and friendly, and the elevator up to our ninth floor room was efficient, while small. The lobby is beautiful, though the rooms are certainly dated. That's okay, though, because there is a very old school NYC... More

Very nice budget hotel, large rooms, good location situated 31st, fith avenue, you can reach a lot of attractions (e.g. central Parc) walking, you get free coffee and muffins for breakfast, nice and friendly staff, If I ever come to New York again I would book it again.

We were able to take advantage of the Wolcott Hotel's 100th Anniversary Special, so my husband and I and my mother took Amtrak down from Boston and arrived at Penn Station. The hotel is a 20 minute walk with luggage on wheels along busy sidewalks. We asked very friendly NYPD officers for directions. From the moment we stepped into the... More

My daughter and I stayed here for one night following a concert at MSG. Very good location, close to Penn Station. We were upgraded to jr. Suite, which was an additional daybed, desk and t.v. Rooms are a bit dated, but very clean. Old world charm lobby. Muffins and coffee in morning was a nice touch. For the price, I... More

We had a 5 night stay at the Wolcott Hotel. It was very close to most attractions and we walked all over NYC from the hotel. The muffins and coffee in the morning is a nice touch in an expensive city (around NZ$300 a night). The room was spacious and the staff were helpful.
