Recently spent a three day weekend at the WJH. It is a nicely appointed property with a bar and Japanese restaurant adjoining. A refurbished small hotel. Room was neat and clean, bathroom a bit small for a king size bedroom but the shower was excellent and the room had some nice touches. Bed was excellent and clean linens by an...

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed April 14, 2017

Since discovering this gem of a hotel three years ago, it is our "go to" hotel whenever we are in NYC and our relatives cannot put us up. We really enjoy the funkiness of the neighborhood. Many great restaurants, close to Times Square without all the touristy hubbub. Walking distance to the Intrepid, Radio City, Rockefeller Center and for the...

I have stayed at the WJ for years - ten as a matter of fact. Despite the age of the hotel and the many renovations during that time, the staff and the service make up for any possible inconvenience. the hotel is slightly off the beaten path, yet very very convenient location. I always feel welcome, and reccommend the WJ...

We stayed at the Washington Jefferson Hotel as we wanted something close to the theater and meetings in the Times Square area. Also, we had heard about great restaurants in the Hell's Kitchen area and were not disappointed. Be forewarned -- rooms are tiny tiny -- but that's true of many NY hotels! Staff was very friendly and helpful! The...

This hotel is very well-located. An easy walk from the subway in the theatre district, and right across the street from amazing ramen - Ippudo. Staff were pleasant and friendly, especially Fatimah. Room and bathroom were very clean, bed very comfy. If you will be out all day and all night and only need a place to shower and sleep,...

Yes, the rooms are small (you are in New York!) but they are clean, (no bedbugs...bonus) Yes the elevator is somewhat small (oh, there you go again- you're in New York)...

I was very pleased with the friendly staff, well-maintained rooms and quality of the room. They made the check-in process easy. Note, there is coffee and tea but no breakfast. Organic soaps and materials, great shower, comfortable bed.

The hotel has a great location and price is reasonable. Do not expect much from your room other than a bed and bathroom. Shower is tiny. Curtain/blinds didn't work. Had a bit of a musty smell. Concierge was great and very helpful. We were selected as the guest of the day and got a $20 Starbucks gift card

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.
