My daughter and I arrived on 11/25/2016 at 10:30 am and check in was not until 3pm. Front desk staff were very accommodating and allowed us to check in immediately. The lobby is amazing, such old world, ornate design. Our room faced the front of the hotel so there was some noise, however, I slept better in this hotel than...

I discovered Wolcott Hotel earlier this year and this - my second stay - has been as great as my first. Really friendly helpful front desk staff, immaculately clean room, complimentary muffins and coffee every morning.... I really like it here, the public transport options are varied and it's easy to get around. This is definitely my new New York...

Prime location to see popular tourist spots. Price was right - we got a good sale. Also got a free upgrade to a junior suite which worked out very nicely as we needed two separate beds. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful.

Really enjoyed the hotel environment which gave a sense of the history of the area from back in the early 1930s. Bed was comfy and clean sheets and towels daily. Left what change we had left and Cadbury dairy chocolate for the maid, although Cadburys is now USA owned ha. Muffins every morning for breakfast could have done with a...

Close to everything if you want to walk but also subway and or cab. Front desk people were very nice and professional. Rooms were good but the Bathroom very small hard for even 1 person...

This is cozy hotel in a convenient area. We stayed on the 10th floor in a four-person room, which had a double or queen bed and a trundle day bed. It was a big room by NYC standards and had a large bathroom. Rooms are super clean and heated by radiators, which some people can find quite noisy. (I actually...

I stayed at the Walcott in December 2016 for a weekend. I found the hotel to be clean, comfortable, and conveniently located (just a couple of blocks from the Empire State Building, Macy's, and Penn Station). I had a room on the 3rd floor facing the back of adjacent buildings, so there was no view, but it didn't matter as...

We had an amazing experience here. The hotel and our room were extremely clean and the wait staff was very friendly. Our hotel room even had a view of the gorgeous Empire State Building. The hotel is located in a great part of town. Close to everything!

Stayed here December 16-19, 2016. Sure the room was a little small, but it was clean and comfortable. We didn't spend a lot of time in the room itself, as it is ideally located near all sorts of things to. Within walking distance of the subway. As it is an older hotel, the radiator in the room was loud when...

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.
