I spent two and a half days recently in New York, and stayed at the Washington Jefferson Hotel, on 51st St, New York City. I found the hotel to be in an excellent situation for central New York, the staff were extremely kind and helpful to a new traveler to their city. The hotel is within easy walking distance of...

Washington Jefferson was a GREAT hotel to stay at. I stayed in the SINGLE QUEEN BEDDED ROOM. In some reviews, people complain about the bathroom being small and no space in the bedroom. This is true if you're planning on throwing a bridal shower in your hotel room. However, I was only there for two days and I need somewhere... More

Washington Jefferson is a good hotel. It is close to some subway stations and close to Times Square too. The hotel is clean and the staff good and pleasure. It is great if you want to visit New York and enjoy your holiday.

We booked the hotel via Hotwire, so it was a surprise when we learned where we were booked. I'd selected a 3 star, which is not our usual choice for NYC, but thought I'd take the chance, as the Hotwire price was excellent. Upon arriving, our reservation somehow was not in the system. Fortunately, I not only had my confirmation... More

A friend and I came up from DC over night to see a couple of shows and picked the Washington Jefferson from one of the on line sites. We were very happy with our choice. The front desk staff was nice and efficient. We got upgraded to a room with two queen beds. The rooms are small. The furnishings are... More

I enjoyed my stay here for the few days i was in NYC. The staff was very helpful with requests and questions and i had. The only downside was the small size of the superior king room, small whirlpool jet tub, and lack of bathroom counter top space. But for the quality, price, and location of the hotel, it was... More
