Excellent trip with sister.

The hotel was in an excellent location. The room was fine and twin beds were a bonus as was the free coffee and muffins. On the downside was the noise outside ( loud enough for us to buy ear plugs) and the overpriced 'one device at a time' wifi. New York was fantastic. Highlights include the Rockefeller building, Central Park - brunch at the boathouse cafe is a must, Empire State and Ellis Island and the 9/11 memorial. Best free attraction was the High Line which is fantastic. Metro and metro ticket is the best way to get around or walk. Take comfortable shoes!

Fantastic city break

We stayed in room 303, lovely clean room, vintage wall paper and a sumptuous grand 40's feel, made up every day by friendly maids. The old style radiator ( probably original cast iron) made some clunking noises the first night but we informed reception who sorted it straightaway. Coffee and muffins till 9.00 am every morning a great bonus, the hotel is in a great location, 10 mins from time square and 5 mins from the Empire State Building. Thoroughly enjoyed our 4 nights and with the gorgeous entrance and friendly staff would wholeheartedly recommend.

Amazing stay in the perfect location!

I absolutely LOVED this hotel! I initially chose it because of its gorgeous architecture and character but was even more impressed by the friendly staff, delicious muffins, and overall ambience of the building. They were able to accommodate me (on super short notice) with a room with a view of the Empire State building, gave wonderful advice on places to visit and where to eat, and even offered me help carry my breakfast goodies up to my room when my hands got too full :) Lastly, they were able to hold my luggage on my last day so I could continue to site-see and then pick it up at the end of the day. I was very grateful for the cleanliness of the room, the knowledge and helpfulness of the staff, and the perfect location for a NYC traveler. I would definitely stay there again!

Perfect sightseeing location

Hotel is a perfect location for all of New York tourist attractions. Hotel is lovely and warm and perfect for what you need. Decor a little dated but the location more than makes up for this. Staff very helpful! Free morning muffins a great touch!

Great location if that's all you want!

Location very good, close to Penn Street and Macy's and very close to a 'Bread and Butter' deli for excellent, reasonably priced food. Hotel reception is beautiful but this does not extend to the rooms, which are outdated. Hotel staff were fine, but I would not describe it as a friendly hotel. Wifi not free and we did not pay the expensive fees. Coffee and muffins in the morning but nothing to shout about. Ice machine and vending machine on bottom floor but we had to find this for ourselves as no one pointed it out. I asked myself would I return to the Wolcott and the answer is no, as it was over priced and basic.

Comfort

Second time we've used the wolcott, it's relaxing, comfortable and the position is pretty good just round the corner from empire state and macy's store.and a short stroll up to times sq. The decor is pretty impressive in the reception area and the rooms are quite large and roomy, would definitely recommend this hotel just fails on the wifi find its very expensive..
