“Great location, spacious room, friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

Besides the very spcious rooms we really enjoyed being so central. The hotel is one block away from the Empire State Building and the Time Square can be reached within 15minutes walking. Furthermore, the staff was really friendly and helpful. If I go back to New York, I will definitively try to book a room in the Wolcott.

Had a 3 bed room, which was hard to find in NY. Helpful staff. Rooms were clean and well looked after by the maid.
One of the TV's didn't have great reception. Fuse went in bathroom, but was fixed when we came back. Elevators are slow, but still worked.
15 minute walk to Times Square, so an ideal location.
No frills. SImple and effective.

Stayed here with a gf as part of a shopping trip to NY. After much research chose this hotel and was happy with choice. Its not far from times square although it is a litle down a dark side street and near a shelter so bit hairy when just 2 females walking back late at night. Hotel was really clean and room service were lovely. Dont forget to tip these girls! We had a plumbing problem and rang to reception they had a guy up in less than 10 mins. Problem solved. I had been in contact with the hotel before we flew out and they were so kind and helpful >very quick on email replies. Would have no problem staying there again. Room was good price for location

Really impressed with the Wolcott. It has a fantastic location within walking distance to major attractions such as Empire State building and Macy's. The room was a very good size, cleaned every day and quite quiet given its location. Complimentary coffee and muffins in the hotel lobby from 6am until 10 am was a nice surprise.

Have just returned from a trip during Hurricane Sandy. I had 20 students with me and we were confined to the hotel for almost 3 days. The staff could not have been more helpful. Special mention must be made of Jetto who went out at the height of the storm to collect pizza for my students. Thank you so much.

Room Tip: Really well situated. A bit dated but good value.

I would recommend this hotel for first time traverles. Very clean, safe and close to main train station, empire state building and walking distance to grand central station and Chrysler building. It's about 10-15 walk to times square.
The rooms got clean everyday and the staff where very nice. The only bad thing I would say is that I could open up the windows all the way up. But that wasn't a major thing.
I would stay here again.
