Fantastic friendly staff, perfectly situated hotel at a reasonable price. We were walking distance to almost everything. There is so much to do in NY that we will be back again and again. I am a big fan!

I took my husband away for the weekend on Feb 8-10. I found this hotel on Expedia and then checked it out further on Trip Adviser. The price, location and reviews sold me on it. We came from NJ, so we had hopped on NJ Transit train to Penn Station and then took a very short subway ride to 50th St. Station. The hotel was only 3 minutes away, walking distance from the subway entrance. VERY CONVENIENT! We were greeted so nicely by Naomi and she upgraded us from a standard room to a Jr suite. All of the other staff members were very friendly and helpful as well, (CUSTOMER SERVICE IS SO IMPORTANT) The room was super clean and very nice. Queen bed. Desk and chair. Another sitting chair in bedroom area. Flat screen TV on wall. Sitting Area had 2 comfy chairs. Table in between. 2nd Flat screen TV on wall. Closet with safe, ironing board, iron and hair dryer. Bathroom was very nicely done in tile. Super clean. Fluffy, soft, thick towels and the shower head's water pressure was like Niagara Falls. It was wonderful! The only things I would've changed about this hotel experience was the mattress on our bed. It was very firm, with little give and I'm used to being embraced by my mattress, but this is only a preference, not a negative. And there were no vending or ice machines in the hotel so you have to go to the Rite aid for water or snacks but its conveniently located only about a block away. We would definitely stay there again and probably will.

Room Tip: We were on the 1st floor in the back of the hotel. Very quiet. Great room. Room number 110

Just got here, rooms are very basic, no room to put clothes away, bed very hard, bathroom door doesn't close, windows don't keep road noise out. Overall not that impressed, hotel seems cheap and in my personal opinion missing some key features.

The WJH is very conveniently located in the Times Square vicinity--close to countless restaurants and tourist sites. My room was cozy and relatively quiet. The management and staff were top-notch--among the best--I really enjoyed meeting and getting to know them. Excellent Experience!!

Excellent 'Last Minute Deal' had me trying out this little jewel of a hotel, well situated near many tourist activities, restaurants, stores. I only needed a clean, safe place to stay overnight while on a business trip. I would definitely return.

Great location, walking distance to Times Square and Central park. Small but clean and quiet rooms. Helpful and attending stuff. Stayed for just one night, but were completely satisfied. Worth the money paid!
