“good location, clean, good service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

it was a nice stay for a week but there was so noise during sleep hours early in the morning (5-9am). The location is perfect to visit Manhattan, well connected with underground (2 minutes walking). Quite clean.

We went to New York for 10 days and stayed to Washington Jefferson. The hotel is on average ok.

Positive points: Location, close to Time Square, restaurants and laundry.

Negative points: small room, small bathroom, noisy room, internet was not working properly.

The location wasn't bad (It's close to the theatre district), but if you have a rare opportunity to visit NYC you don't want to skimp on the hotel. The rooms were small, the AC is provided by window units. Bathroom was like being on a submarine. I thought the staff was nice, but it just couldn't save the experience. We made the best of it, but will remember to throw more money at a hotel next time.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

The location of this hotel is great, being a short walk from Times Square it gives you easy access to all the major sights in NYC via the subway system. There's a very nice and friendly bar just a few doors down. The rooms are small but that's to be expected in Manhattan, the bathroom was lovely, room was clean with a firm but comfortable bed. The view was lacking and there were no coffee making facilites or on site breakfast available, but there's plenty of places nearby. The room was quieter than expected and the service was excellent. I would say that if this hotel was in any other location it would be massively over-priced, but for New York it is pretty good value for money and a good mid-range option. Would return and recommend.

This was a great hotel to stay in if you want to do all the tourist things. It is in a great location, close to Times Square and the subway. Also you are in the heart of Hells Kitchen which is bustling! The hotel was clean and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The rooms were very quite and overall it was a great place to stay. Would definitely stay there again. Only minus was there was no air conditioning which might be a real problem during the hot summer months!

Enjoyed our stay here at WJH in New York. Small hotel and rooms but had all the basics you could need! Handy to all areas of the city including Central Park and plenty of shops! I would recommend and would stay again for the location and price compared to some other hotel chains that cost double!
