I stayed at the Wolcott hotel for a long weekend with my mum and I can honestly say I cannot fault anything, the hotel features are amazing (built in the early 1900's). Service absolutely fantastic and the rooms amazing and spacious, I would definitely stay there again and all amenities close by,and all easily accessible either by walking distance or by bus or subway

After much debate we managed to decide on this Fabulous hotel with its brilliant location. I would definitely recommend a stay here. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Coffee and buns an added bonus in the morning free of charge. Walking distance to all attractions if you like to keep fit. Five minutes from Times Square which is a must to see.

It’s took a while for me to write a review, but with plenty time on my hands, thought I’d do it now lol. We had a fantastic time in New York, and this hotel was a perfect base. It is a building of great history and a superb entrance/foyer area. Staff were very friendly, muffins and hot drinks were a perfect way to start the day. In all fairness, there’s plenty places to eat so why do hotels need to provide a menu!!!?? Our room was of a good size, the view not of anything of note, and the bathroom had everything in it that was required, even if a little “tight”. Overall, a great base. Round the corner from Empire State Building, 10 mins to Macy’s, 25/30 mins to Times Square.....defo stay again. Stay safe everyone 👍

Must of us have time on our hands. Thank you for taking the time to right a review of the Wolcott Hotel in New York City. The true the Hotel is located in the center of New York City, close to the Empire State Building and Macy's department store. Our coffee and muffins are good for a quick pick me out but there are better restaurants in the area. Hope to see you again when this change back to normal.

We stayed here at the beginning of March and what can I say... Brilliant location of most attractions... We like to walk so was no issue. Free coffee and muffins every morning 6.30 to 9 if I remember correctly... Would definitely stay again.. Was like going back to the early 1900s but was upto date amenities.

Thank you for this wonderful review. Wolcott is located 3 blocks south of the Empire State Building, in the heart of tourist New York a short walk to everything else. Your coffee times are correct , but now with Covid no coffee , no guest, no travel. We all pray that this will be behind us soon, and we can go out and live in the word again. Stay Safe!! Hope to see you again soon.

We debated for so long over what hotel to book for our stay in New York, we looked extensively at reviews and after a noticing a very well written response to a clearly malicious review we decided to book The Wolcott. Well I can honestly say we were absolutely delighted with our choice. Everything about this place was perfect for us - location, cleanliness and of course the staff. The hotel itself is luxurious in design in the lobby and has an old fashioned glamour to it. The room again had the same feel to it but had all the mod cons and facilities you could need. The breakfast muffins were delicious and certainly saved us some money on breakfast every day. The staff were helpful, polite and accommodating at all times. We traveled with our 13 year old son and the triple room set up we had was perfect. I honestly do not have a bad word to say about this hotel and if we return to New York again this would be our first choice.
