Great little hotel. Central to everything.

Pros: Central location, friendly staff, cleanliness, great value, free storage of luggage on checkout until leaving for the airport.
Cons: An in room fridge and free wifi
Location: West 31st street. Empire state building, Macy's, Times square, Bryant Park, Rockerfeller Centre, Eataly, Flat Iron Building, Madison square garden.
This was my third stay at the Wolcott Hotel. It is in the perfect midtown location for everything- the Empire State building, Macy's, Flat Iron building, Bryant Park, Rockerfeller Centre and Times square. 34th st metro is a couple of minutes walk away. This hotel has a lot of history and has all the original features in its stunning lobby. Ask to see the old ballroom. The rooms are spacious for New York standards and are spotlessly clean. The beds, pillows and linens are good quality. I would have liked a larger bath towel, and a fridge to store drinks in, but that's my own personal preference. The bathrooms are a good size with bath, shower etc, also spotlessly clean. They serve coffee and muffins for breakfast and there is a Dunkin Doughnuts across the road if you fancy something different. The staff were all polite and friendly. This is a gem of a hotel. I have recommended it to many friends who have also stayed there and enjoyed it. I will always choose the Wolcott over any other N.Y. hotel.

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.

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!

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..

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.
