      Situated just off 5th Ave this lovely old hotel with an ornate foyer is a little genm in the heart of it all. Very friendly staff, comfortable rooms - few WiFi issues but apparantly that is everywhere in NY.

      Historical Traveler Reviews Wolcott Hotel New York City

      Great Value!


      Great value hotel - rooms were comfortable and pleasant, staff were helpful, everything worked...most importantly it was CLEAN. Obviously not the most plush hotel around, but it is more than functional if you are not going to be spending much time there. Location is excellent, the street its located on is a bit dark and dingy but once you get out onto 5th Ave you're in the middle of it all.

      Decent budget hotel


      We spent nine nights at the Wolcott. Overall, the hotel was quite nice considering the rate. The lobby was quite grand, nicely restored and ornamented and the rooms were moderate, but clean and the bed was firm and ok. TV worked, some trouble with the signal with some channels.

      Complimentary muffins, coffee and tea were served in the lobby, which was a nice surprise. Location is excellent, just a couple of blocks from the Empire State Building, Macy's and Penn Station. The two elevators were small and slow, and one of them malfunctioned one evening, but it was repaired before the next morning. The hallways seemed somewhat worndown. Maid visited everyday. If you want a clean,basic and affordable place where to stay and rest your bones in a good location in Manhattan, then I guess the Wolcott is just fine.

      Don't expect anything fancy or room service or anything like that.

      There were no problems (except the one elevator one night) during our stay. Overall we got good value for our money.

      Great Stay


      We stayed at the Hotel Wolcott from 15th November until 22nd November 2003. We were very pleasantly surprised after reading bad reviews on the hotel and thought we had made a mistake booking it based on the price. We found the staff to be perfectly pleasant and the triple room we booked was great. Really spacious with two twin beds in one section and another one round the corner in another part of the room which gave the feeling of privacy and your own TV! The room was very clean and comfortable and the hotel was located in a great part of town within walking distance of Times Square and just round the corner from the Empire State building. No complaints from us at all.

      It was OK...


      Yes, the room was clean and the bathroom was OK. The room was very small. I think i'ts a good price, we paid 99 USD/night for a twin bed room. But the staff was very unhelpful and no service minded at all.

      Would visit again!


      Was pleasantly surprised for the price of the hotel. The room was spacious and clean, and had a great view of the Empire State Building from the window. The area is not great, but it's relatively quiet, and is well positioned to get to all the tourist spots easily. Would definitely go again, as you couldn't beat the price for the centre of NYC.

      Stepping back in time


      It was like stepping back in time. The place is 100 years old and still looks great. They kept the decorations the same. Wow

      Loved it


      I liked the hotel is was clean and resonable priced. I do not know what the other reviews are talking about. For the price no place had free breakfest

      Nasty hotel


      We stayed here for economical reasons, but there are hotels of a similar price range in the area that looked far nicer. We had reserved a room for an agreed price but on arrival the clerk asked us to sign something quoting a far higher price. The rooms are dull, dingy and the staff are awful. I do not consider the location to be particularly good either, yes it is next to the empire state building & near Macys but uptown is far nicer.

      Down and Out!


      If you are down on your luck, this may be the place for you. We booked because we thought the location was good for a budget hotel. Well, that was about all that was good.

      The rooms were OK, but a bit run down. THe service, however, was awful.

      It seemed liked every person that we interacted with had a permanent frown and really did not want to be there. Neither did we!

      It's OK


      hotels OK. A bit dingy but it's cheap.

      Good location, but let down by very unfriendly staff.

      In the morning, Julie and I went shopping and took our shopping back to the Hotel..we were heading off to Museum Mile but ended up at Empire State. Building. The Skyride was amazing. It was a simulator ride and took you all over New York. After that, we went to the 80th floor to the viewing platform and took photos.

      AM Julie and I walked to Union Square. We had lunch at Union Square Park. We bought our lunch from one of the many food vans. Julie picked up her New York Pass. In the evening, we went and saw "Matilda" on Broadway. Broadway is so alive and all lit up with the signs of different shows. We went to Times Square as well.
      "Matilda" was very good.

We did have a brief sojourn into Bloomingdales department store which seemed to consist of rather overpriced merchandise. The architecture around Brooklyn was quite beautiful with many of the buildings being very ornate, partcularly the court house and the Trinity church. We are off ...

      We all slept in after the big night and awoke to house keeping trying to come into our room. Good enough wake up call for us. So off to lunch at Applebee's. :) seeing Times Square in the day time was pretty cool and since I didn't remember seeing it last night it was extravagant. People everywhere, lights everywhere and the only let down was the size of the New Year's Eve ball. I mean it's ...
