“Reasonably priced hotel”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

The staff was really friendly throughout our stay here. When we needed ice, they would bring it up immediately and they always welcomed you when you entered into the hotel. Overall, it's a good place that's located right near all the excitement of times square.

WJ Hotel was in the middle of everything. Walking distance from Times Square and Central Park. It was very convenient. Hotel staff were extremely hopeful and friendly. The conditions of the rooms were impressive. Very clean and tidy. Felt very comfortable.

The website did say they cannot guarantee the type of room you get; I was traveling with my daughter and asked for 2 twin beds. Upon arrival, we were put in a tiny room with one Queen bed. The bathroom was super tiny, the toilet and sink taps were both loose but worked. The shower stall was quite big but the water pressure was not very good (typical of hotels though). I asked for a transfer and was moved the next day to a street-facing room with two twin beds. The bathroom in this room was much bigger and everything worked well. Overall, the hotel is clean, the staff very friendly, and you can't beat the location - close to everything cool in NYC.

Room Tip: Because the rooms are tiny, the A/C units in the windows are blowing directly onto you. Street-side...

Four 21 year old girls from Australia, recently stayed at this hotel for 7 nights. We arrived at the hotel on the 23 July 2014 and after attempting to check in, were kindly notified we had made an error in our booking dates. The staff members at the desk, especially Naomi went above and beyond to assist us in rectifying our mistake and helped us get the extra nights stay we required at a great price. Every day, all staff greeted us and were helpful. Our room (two double beds) was a great size for New York accommodation (four girls with four very large suitcases and hand luggage all easily accommodated in the room/floor space). The room itself was clean and had everything we needed. Our only issue being the small nature of the shower and leaking from the glass door. An extra mirror outside of the bathroom would have been handy but not a necessity. Staff were always helpful, providing extra towels and assisting us with local calls from the front desk at no charge. Overall a fantastic experience and a hotel we would definitely recommend. Great location just outside of Times Square, quiet spot within walking distance to several well priced restaurants with good food.

The hotel is in a great location and charges a decent price for NY.

Our bathroom was a bit cramped and a fridge would've been nice to store our drinks, but honestly we didn't go to NY City to stay in the hotel room all day!

This place was really central to all the things we wanted to see and do and made it a breeze to get around everything.

My wife and I stayed for 6 nights while I was on business in Manhattan. We had reserved a 2 Queen room and initially placed in a room facing the interior. We were moved to a street facing room that was larger with a smaller bathroom. Overall, an excellent room for the price. It is definitely one of the better "non-chain" hotels I have stayed at in Manhattan. Bed was most comfortable and room was exceptionally clean. Location was great since it is located between avenues and near Hell's Kitchen and Times Square without the crowds and noise. Bell, Front Desk and Housekeeping staff were some of the most helpful and polite I have encountered. I would have given it five stars except there is no beverage service in hotel - no coffee/tea in room or lobby. Need to go to a deli down the street. I was told by front desk staff that the owners were pursuing beverage service within the hotel.

A very good hotel located at West 51st and 8th Ave in the heart of New York theatre district. Great staff, excellent rooms. We felt we received very good value for the amount we paid. Staff excellent.
