My sister came to New York with a friend to visit us and stayed at the Watson as it is nearby. It is very conveniently located, but is in urgent need of repair since the toilet did not flush and the electrical socket did not work. Unfortunately it was over the holidays and there were no other available rooms. The staff were as accommodating as could be and offered a full refund.

We really enjoyed our stay at The Watson. The location was very convenient, subway stations close by and plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Our room was very clean and comfortable, with maid service everyday. Thoroughly enjoyed drinks at the bar with very pleasant staff. A girl at guest relations was fantastic at sorting out a problem with a taxi service we had used. Would definitely stay again.

This isn’t a hotel, it’s a homeless shelter. This used to be a good hotel option in the area but it hasn’t been used as a hotel for months and there’s no sign that it will be a hotel again. There is constant police activity and area is no longer safe. Stay away!

I loved this hotel. Having stayed previously in New York with 7 children, we needed a hotel that was closer to the amenities. We were located near Maddison Gardens the first time and found the walking a bit of a chore. This hotel is in Hells KItchen and close to the subway, Central Park etc. Great hotel with great amenities. Hallways are a little dated but once you get into the rooms they are fantastic and ample for what you need. Totally would stay again as loved this place. They also keep your bags for early check in or late check out. T
