“This is no longer a hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

I just called to try and book Hotel Olcott as I couldn't find any website or online info and was told this is now condominiums, and not a hotel for short term stays. Disappointing as the location is exactly what I was looking for!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

The Hotel Olcott is a wonderful place to stay. Our one bedroom was really a condo that included a kitchen, large high ceiling living room, bedroom, and tiled bathroom with clawfoot tub and glass doorknobs. One afternoon on our way out shopping, we heard amazing piano music coming from the room down the hall. When we asked the clerk at the front desk about it, he said, "Oh she is a resident and plays for the New York Symphony." That is the class of the residence that stay permanently in the Hotel Olcott. You'll love the millions of dollars worth of black marble in the lobby and elevator. Yes, it is an old hotel; however, it has been kept up to date mechanically and aesthetically. They make you feel as if you are in your own home. Hotel Olcott is in the same block with the Dakota building and across in Central Park, you will walk into the "imagine" memorial of John Lennon. Subway and parking are within walking distance - great restaurants are close by.
