Noisy

We were awakened every morning by the sound of the hot water running through the pipes. For being on west coast time, this was EXTREMELY early and not a good way to start the day.

Fabulous stay

I would recommend this hotel to everyone. It is beautiful and old! Loved that! Great muffins and coffee complimentary in the morning. Fantastic service! The staff is the best! Our room was actually 2 rooms! Bathroom small, but who cares when you have such great service and the rest of he room is so large.

Terrific Time

It was my elderly mom's first time to NYC and the Wolcott was centrally located to all of the action- cabs, public transportation was easy accessible. During our stay my mom got sick and the staff assisted her while I was out on business. I would stay there again.

I love NYC!!!

This was my first time in NYC. The Wolcott is conveniently located and the price is great! Rome is a little small however if you are going to NYC you aren't going there to spend it in the room. The room was very clean and comfortable. There are free muffins or coffee in the morning but there is a Dunkin Donuts conveniently located across the street. I will definitely be staying here again!

Cheap budget stay

The Wolcott is an old style hotel with many interesting features. However since Miles Davis stayed here not much has changed. The room was clean and comfortable but a bit of renovation would be nice. Hot water in the bathrooms needs some 5 minutes to appear hot and the pipes are quite noisy. WIFI is not complimentary but $10 per 24h and if you want it for multiple devices you have to purchase for each device. Breakfast is not available at all but therefor free coffee and muffins are provided in the lobby from 6am. Staff was very friendly and provided a late-check-out for free and I could leave my luggage with them for another few hours before I had to take my the shuttle to the airport which could be booked for reasonable $30 in the reception. If you are not looking for a romantic weekend stay but rather for a budget hotel in midtown this is perfect.
