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.

Flew in from California and met my sister from Long Island at the Wolcott. It is a lovely historic hotel with modern rooms! The helpful front desk let her check in before I arrived. They granted my request for a high floor. We were happy with the modern decor and bathroom features. We had 2 twin beds which was a bit unusual but it worked for us! They have other rooms with larger bed configurations. They have coffee and muffins in the AM and there are breakfast places nearby if you want more right away. Their wifi worked great and the lobby had comfy couches and beautiful architecture. We enjoyed the chocolate cafe across the street after dinner! All in all it was priced right, convenient, comfortable and just fine for our one night stay in the city!

If you're looking for a sleek sophisticated modern hotel the Hotel Wolcott is not for you, but if you're looking for a piece of New York history, great architecture and an absolutely stunning lobby then the Hotel Wolcott has it all in spades. Our room (a twin) with a view of the Empire State building was clean and a good size, the beds were comfortable and towels white and fluffy! The decor is old fashioned but totally in keeping with the hotel. It is noisy but no more than you would expect in New York so bring earplugs! WiFi is free and there is coffee and muffins in the lobby in the mornings. The location is great, close to the subway, Penn Station and a short walk from the highline. The Hotel Wolcott is also amazing value compared to other hotels in New York. It's quirky and full of character and I would highly recommend it if you want something different from a chain and want to stay somewhere beautiful and comfortable for a decent price.

This Hotel is One of NY Old Hotels and it is in the middle of Manhattan. Only 5 Minutes Walk aways to the Empire State Building and the Downtown Hop on Hop off bus Station. Nice Location for Sightseeingtour Trip.

We had a junior suite which meant my mum got a double bed and I had a separate area with separate desk and TV. Free muffins/ tea and coffee in the morning started each day off well. The only downside was the keycards which frequently stopped working but the staff were helpful each time. The concierge booked our coach back to the airport which was simple and effective. A great, affordable experience with my 70 yr old mum. Thanks
