I stayed at Wolcott for 4 nights in October, chose it based on its reviews here at tripadvisor, found exactly what I expected. Very well located, however, it is a little far (5-7 mins walk) from the street 46, the actual happening timesquare street, so walking back to hotel really late at night was a little creepy. The muffins and...

The location was very central, we looked out of our bedroom window at the Empire State building. Room had an old world charm, and was very warm and clean. The hop on hop off bus had a stop just round the corner, which took us everywhere. Time Square is very close. The staff were very friendly and looked after us...

The hotel was very centralized. Clean and spacious. Hotel employees were very helpful. I would recommend this hotel for the price. I would stay there again when visiting NYC. Morning coffee and muffins were great. They had a laundry room and a computer for guest. Very nice and warm feeling when you enter.

Stayed here in November after hurricane sandy. Rooms were small and poky even tho we "upgraded" to a "junior suite" I dread to think how small a std room is. Overall it was quiet shabby and worn looking with threadbare carpets in the rooms. If we wanted hot water it sounded like a jack hammer was going off in the...

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...

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.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
