Unfortunately that is all I can say...great location!!!! When we arrived at the hotel we were told we could not checkin despite having phoned before and told hat this would be ok. Big argument at the reception desk then led to us being told we would be upgraded. In meantime my luggage was packed into somebody else's car. It's only... More

For those for whom such issues matter, you don't support some indifferent corporation staying at WJ. This hotel is privately owned, and while not quite mom and pop--too elegant for that--one receives a warm greeting. I've read others describe the rooms as tiny, but while small, I found my double a good size for two. Ours had a wall-mounted TV... More

What a terrific venue -- from top to bottom, my experience was first rate. The easy online reservation came first, followed by a welcoming team of employees, and a great room. I would highly recommend!

The location of the hotel was excellent for what we were doing in New York.However the room was very small for the two of us with our luggage. The room was well kept and the staff was friendly and helpful

If you want to be in Times Square and Mid-town, you can't beat the location. The rooms are very small, however. Also, the bed was uncomfortable and the heater worked too well - it was like a sauna in the room! Also, I wasn't impressed with the service from the front desk - some of the personnel had attitudes and... More

This hotel is spotless,friendly and very central to everything. The price was great. The only thing I would say is if your walking home from say times sq late at night (2.30 in our case) it's a bit scary. We actually walked by 2 men doing a drug deal in the middle of the street. Daytime it's perfect. Staff were... More

Initially chose the hotel for one night, but after walking into the room booked for the duration of my stay in NYC. The room was remodeled tastefully, very clean, small but the large bathroom made up for it. The bed comfy and the bathroom sparkley! The front desk folks were very friendly both during the checkin and checkout, well trained... More

Once you stay at the WJH you will never have the need to stay anywhere else. They are located in a perfect spot. The cleanliness of the WJH is superior to others. It is a landmark hotel that is VERY well maintained. Everyone at the WJH makes you feel important & welcomed. We love the WJH.

This hotel is really in the perfect location in NYC. The rooms are very small (it's crowded with two people) but the hotel staff and service was great. Our main issue with this hotel was that the heating could not be turned off so the solution we were told was to open the window to cool the room down. Huge... More

The hotel is very close to the underground and also at a reasonable distance from Times Square. The standard room is really essential but ok for a kind of "on the road" holiday. The staff is really kind and helpful and also services they offer are useful. You can print your boarding pass at the desk and the reserve for... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
