The staff at the front desk were always really friendly and helpful and the hotel is in a great location, I'm afraid that's where the good points end though. The rooms are old, tired and in need of an overhaul, they're noisy so to block out street noise earplugs are needed. The beds and pillows are terrible, there's not much... More

Although at the beginning they gave me a tiny room and was for two , I asked for a change and after two nights it went through the change. Above that everything was great location, amenities, bed, super friendly staff , will definitely come back!

The price/quality balance was for someone from Europe not up to standards. We paid for 6 nights 2,,000 dollars for still a noisy room without amenities there nore in the hotel. Only tea and coffeee in the morning in the hallway between 7 and 9 and a few chairs in the lobby. But the location is the best you can... More

Hotel is located on a mostly residential street walking distance to several good restarunts, Times Square and the Theater District. My room was very small with basic furnishings. I was pleasantly surprised by the Ferette bed linenes and bath towels which seemed a little out of place in this... More

This hotel is located perfectly! It is close to Times Square. Everything is within walking distance. The hotel is lovely, a few upgrades could be made. The elevator is outdated. However, the beds are extremely comfortable. I stayed in a double queen room and there was more room then I expected. There was a sofa, a desk and two tv's!... More

We stayed here in September 2016 1 week. Frankly speaking the price spent for this Hotel is not fair at all. Room small without closet, and bathroom microscopic, no breakfast included only a cup of tea or American coffee. But the worst this is the air conditioning... without is so hot, with the noisy is so noisy that you can't... More

This is the first time I have stayed at the WJH. I chose them in particular for their closeness to my meeting but also for the reasonable price. I found the staff to be extremely friendly and inviting. They had useful responses to my inquiries about local restaurants and directions etc. Frankly, I was surprised by the overall high quality...

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.
