I went to New York in May with my friend and we booked in for five nights at the Wolcott hotel. The hotel is situated just around the corner from the Empire State building and if you are lucky, you may be able to catch a glimpse of it out of your window! Its also right on the doorstep of... More

perfect location and Brandon was a wonderful help to us, in finding a restaurant for my husband and I to celebrate our 50th Anniversary, he went above and beyond. I would most definitely recommend this hotel. Also great location

We stayed for ten days and were very pleased with this property. Our room was recently renovated and a comfortable size for NYC. Bathroom was spacious with new fixtures. The entire staff was accommodating -- from front desk to housekeeping. This is a 100 plus year-old building and the elevators can't always keep up -- ask for a lower floor,... More

Arriving in the fantastically ornate lobby you think you've stepped back in time. Our room wasn't ready but the staff secured our bags and pointed us to the restaurant at the intersection of 5th and 31st, Bread and Butter and the staff were right, definitely eat here. On our return we were directed to our room, spacious clean if a... More

We stayed at the Wolcott for five nights. Even before we went I knew it was going to be a great place to stay, reading reviews really helped me know how to gauge the visit. Firstly I emailed and asked if it was at all possible to have a room with a view of the Empire State building and they... More

If you only need a place to sleep.....The hotel is well kept, clean and has all that you need but many things that you might want are not available. There is no central air so the hallways are HOT. The TINY rooms do have window units, but seem to take forever to cool off your room. The bathrooms are microscopic,... More

Enjoyed our stay at Wolcott, the staff was nice, and it's in an ideal location for things we wanted to do. It's an older hotel but I liked the charm of being somewhere with history. Empire State building is nearby, as is the great food in Koreatown and the High Line isn't too far either. Great value as well.

The hotel is a little dated, but it is also comfortable. The lobby brings back the grandeur of past years and has a kind of "WOW" affect. My room was clean. The bed comfortable. The bathroom clean. The air conditioner was a bit noisy, but tolerable. Also, the location was good. Kind of touristy, but still fun. Lots of interesting... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Wolcott. It was clean beyond my expectations, which was my biggest concern in finding a hotel. It's a very beautiful place that feels safe. Never heard any street noise. The employees were very friendly and helpful. Did I mention it was CLEAN! It didn't have any kind of smells. I will definitely stay... More
