Great Service in an Excellent Location

The hotel met all of my expectations. Assisted by friendly staff throughout my stay. Room was clean and spacious. Only complaint is that traffic was pretty audible from my room at night which was a quick fix with ear plugs as most of downtown NYC is pretty noisy. Would definitely recommend to friends and/or visit the Wolcott Hotel again.

Good Location

You can tell the hotel really used to be something back in the day but the rooms are kind of shabby and run down now. They are also quite small and more along the lines of European hotels. Overall though it was clean and a great location.

Excellent location

The hotel is a bit old, and no amenities are offered, but the location is really awesome. It's a block away from the empire state, and a few blocks away from 2 subway stations so it is very convenient for tourists.

Fun Tourist Trip

I had no complaints with this hotel. The location was perfect for the type of trip we were doing. The bed was comfortable and clean. The staff were friendly. My only complaint would be with their wifi setup. You had to pay for wifi and it was only included on the device registered so it couldn't be used by multiple people stay or transfered through devices.

Served it's purpose

Good midtown location. VERY comfortable bed. Bathroom/shower/towels also very nice. Bed/pillows/linens also very comfortable with extra pillows and blankets in the closet when needed. But, in spite of all that..... It was hard to get a good nights sleep because the ancient heating system was clanging and banging loudly through the pipes all night long. Besides this, the hotel is a nice economical NYC alternative. The free coffee was good quality.

OK Hotel - some amenities lacking

The Wolcott Hotel is a nice older hotel. We had a large room with three twin beds at the back of the hotel. It was quiet which was a nice surprise for NYC. The hotel offers coffee and muffins in the morning. One odd thing- they only offered skim milk with the coffee. Things I would have liked - coffee offered afternoon and evening. I would have liked free internet. I think it was a little expensive for what we got. That said, I would recommend it & would consider coming back.
