Located One block from subway makes the hotel accessible for sightseeing, night activities and to JFK. The straff is very nice and helpful. Our room had a newly renovated bathroom with shower, very clean. The air conditioning is noicy, so also the ventilation when air cond is turned off. However we did not have problems sleeping.

Needed a simple and affordable place to stay in NY. The location was very good as it was near Times Square and asian restaurants. The room itself was small, hence the name. The desk was old fashioned and crammy but workable. A/C was cold although it was installed under a window. Bathroom was also small but good enough. Lights were... More

OK, they need to rename this hotel to Nixon Carter Hotel because Nixon lied to us and Carter jacked up the rates. We arrived at 12:30 AM after our flight was delayed significantly. We paid for a Deluxe Queen Room and they put us in a Standard Queen room. The Standard Queen was the size of a shoebox and the... More

My wife and I stayed at the Washington Jefferson Hotel for our 1 year anniversary in September. We actually visited NYC during the same time the Pope was there (we didn't know this prior to booking). The hotel staff were very friendly and are very accommodating to your needs and in giving directions to various NYC hot spots. The room... More

I just spent the weekend in the Washington Jefferson Hotel. Overall I was not impressed and would avoid this hotel the future. The hotel is basically 1930 vintage hotel, except the lobby which looks like it has been renovated in the last 10 years. The hotel is very small and basic and has changed little from when it is constructed.... More

The location is good. Do not like staying right in Times Square. Nice, quiet, clean and convenient hotel. Expected a lot less when booked this hotel online. There is a good Japanese restaurant right across from the hotel.

As a woman traveling alone for 5 nights, it was critical that my hotel was in a safe neighborhood, in a convenient location, and quiet at night. The Washington Jefferson was all of these things. I felt safe walking back alone at midnight, and I couldn't hear any street noise from my top-floor room. It was a short and easy... More

Our room was very nice, the staff was great, good location fir the theatres and central park. The issue was that the room's A/C was broken and seemed to be for a while. There was a window unit in place with those accordion style plastic slides that block absolutely no noise. Right outside the window, construction started at 6 am... More

LOVE IT. The rooms are small but you are in New York City and you are only there to sleep. Right? The only suggestion I would have upgrade if you can afford it. As a solo traveller I stayed in a standard room on a higher floor. The room size for one was perfect though the bathroom is small. Location... 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.
