4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stayed here with 2 family members. We wanted a room for 3 adults with separate beds for a reasonable price and I found there was limited choice and went for the Wolcott Hotel. The lobby is very pretty but unfortunately smells really strongly of cigarette smoke which ruins the first impression a bit. There are muffins and coffee served... More

I stayed here last week - the room was quite spacious for New York and very tidy and neat. The staff were very rude - of all the places we stayed in New York it was definitely the worst with staff. They were unhelpful - very abrupt. I heard the reception man at one point yelling at a customer. Wouldn't... More

We got this as a deal on Priceline and could not have been more pleased. The location was so convenient, just steps from Herald Square and subway access. A short walk to TImes Square and Penn Station. Could not have been any more convenient to what we needed this trip. The room was clean and the staff was very pleasant.... More

Stayed there while visiting Manhattan. The hotel is conveniently located near many popular tourist attractions, restaurants, shops and cafes. Being a smoker, I was given a room on the upper floors. The room was spacious; big comfortble beds and quite a nice bathroom. Complimentary muffins and coffee for breakfast-the muffins were really good! The staff were really helpful and the... More

We chose this hotel for its proximity to an apt. Our granddaughter and 2 other teens were occupying. I stayed with the girls & my husband stayed at the Wolcott. It was old, but spotlessly clean and had a large bathroom. We normally do not stay in this part of town, but should we need to be located here, would... More

If you're visiting NYC, this is an okay location being on 5th/31st just off 5th Avenue. The place is in an old building so don't expect modern rooms, but they are comfortable and clean. I was on the 4th floor which smelt of cigarette smoke in the corridors. They have an ice machine in the basement. Right outside the hotel... More

During our visit in New York we stayed at the Wolcott hotel. It's an old nice hotel with friendly staff. We had a room with the three of us, it was a good room but the bathroom was very small. Every morning you could start your day with muffins, all kinds of sorts, and coffee or thee. The muffins taste... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
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.
