Washington Jefferson Hotel
Ranked #272 of 469 Hotels in New York City
Reviewed March 1, 2014 via mobile

I was so impressed with this hotel. The staff were so welcoming, friendly, and helpful. The decor is beautiful. Cleanliness is superb. LOVED that they offer a free luggage check both before your checkin time and after you check out!!! I definitely didn't want to be toting my bags all over the city during the day. They gave me a free upgrade to a room with a king bed and jacuzzi bathtub when I checked in. No idea why, but it was awesome. Normally I would never soak in a hotel tub but this tub was sparkling clean. The toiletries smell really nice, lavender and peppermint. And the location cannot be better. It is one block from the subway and two blocks from Broadway. I was able to easily walk to the shows I went to, didn't need to worry about trying to get a cab after. Easy walking distance to Times Square, too. I recommend everything about this hotel and will always stay here from now on when coming to the city. It could not be better. I booked through Priceline.com which linked to booking.com and my room was only about $125 a night before taxes. Don't know if summer prices will increase a lot, but I was expecting to pay a LOT more for a nice hotel in New York. Super pleased with the whole experience.

I stayed for 3 weeks in WJ. It was first time in NYC and was looking for hotels near Times Square which was near to my work location and in the range of $120 - $150. I stumbled upon WJ and booked for a week stay going by trip advisor ratings. In couple of days I made up my mind to continue here all 3 weeks. Overall stay was good, hotel staff is very humble and helpful 24X7. Rooms are adequately small, standard rooms are better (specifically *34 series, I stayed in 634 for 2 weeks). Location is another advantage. Very close to subway C&E. Some more at couple of block distance. Timesquare is 2-3 blocks. All dining places on 9th street just a block away. Within a mile you can reach almost 40-50% of locations to visit in Manhattan.

I loved this place. The Plaza or Waldorf it wasn't but then I didn't have to pay $1000's for my stay either. It was just a clean comfortable room with a hot shower in the morning before my days adventures and a nice place to lay my head at night. Walking distance to everything Broadway and close to subway stations for adventures uptown or downtown. All at an extremely reasonable "Manhattan" price. Thanks to WJ Hotel staff.

Great last-minute price and location could not be better! We booked because our flight was moved and the staff was understanding and very helpful. We will definitely be back to this hotel the next time we're in NYC

This was my third trip to NYC and my second to WJH. We came deliberately for the Super Bowl weekend and were not disappointed. The hotel was just as I remembered it to be and both my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

This was our second stay at the Washington Jefferson Hotel and we will definitely return in the future. As many others have stated before us--the Location cannot be beat! It is close to the Subway (1 block away) which will take you Uptown or Downtown quickly. Broadway shows are as close as the next block up or 6 to 7 blocks away--all within walking distance. There are more delicious restaurants within walking distance than you can choose from; offering all types of cuisine. The downside of the hotel is the beds and the heat. The beds are harder than I would typically prefer, although after a busy day walking around New York City I have to admit I had little trouble falling asleep. Although it was cold outside, the heat inside of our room could not be controlled and it was unbearably hot. Luckily the windows opened slightly so we were able to control the temperature by keeping them open throughout the day and night. The upside---there are many positives. From the moment the bell hop opens the front door you are recognized warmly and welcomed to the hotel by an amazing staff. The front desk welcomed us, checked us in efficiently, answered all of our questions and upgraded us to a better complimentary room. We were grateful for the larger room during our 3-day stay. The cost was a HUGE plus--such a good deal to stay in nice accommodations, within close proximity to the things we wanted to do. Having stayed here before we received notice of "winter specials" which included February School Vacation week--we couldn't have been happier. Check-out was equally easy. Once again we were offered any help that we needed--luggage storage while we grabbed lunch, a call for transportation to wherever we were going, directions to get to Penn station on the subway etc.
In spite of the few "downsides" there were far more upsides. I would recommend this hotel to other's considering it and we will definitely be back to stay again the next time we visit NYC.

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!
