best budget hotel – You get a cheaper rate if you reserve via telephone. It's really nice here, the photos don't do it justice, the staff is friendly and well trained. There are late nite eats when you can't sleep, right around the corner, also cheap souveneirs for folks back home, around the corner, the empire state building is nearby, it takes about 2 minutes to walk there. It's great here, no problems at all, and no problem with parking (they validat/discount at an assigned garage nearby). Start exploring before you get a cab, so much is nearby. The rooms are so clean, and the beds are comfortable. Believe me on the following, the rooms are not small, surprise, surprise, we were ready for tiny. Plus you get a tub. For 180/night and superlative service, WOW.
these reviews led me to wolcott, so, since july, I imagine it's still great.
no fear, this is new york at it's finest, on a budget ofcourse
(otherwise, take your chances, you pay less, you wil get less, and isn't safety in the big apple your main concern.
I loved it, (and I'm damn picky)
Great Stay for a Great Price – My son and I just returned from our second trip to NY where we stayed at the Hotel Wolcott both times. I would definently stay there again. The rooms are comfortable and clean. We had plenty of hot water, and the staff were always very friendly and accomodating. They just rewallpapered a lot of the hallways- ours was very bright and cheerful. They have a nice gift shop where you can buy souvenirs or snacks. The hotel is convenient to so many things- Empire State Building, Manhattan Mall, Madison Square Garden and Penn Station are all just a short walk away. There's also a Burger King, CVS Store, Subway Sandwich and Dunkin' Donuts combined store, and a post office all pretty much right around the corner. The nights are very quiet. The only complaint I have is the morning ritual of door slamming. I don't know if it was the maid or just inconsiderate people, but I'd listen to this repeatedly every morning, so don't plan on sleeping in late. The room doors are not very sound-proofed. Other than that, it's an awesome place to stay and I'd be happy to stay there again!
sweet place – we love the wolcott hotel !!!!!! Its perfect for tourist!!! so close to everything !!!!close to all the sweet action!!!!!my girlfriend and I had great time in new york!!!!!!!!
In heart of Tourist NY – Clean, Comfortable, Spacious Rooms, Friendly Desk Service. in heart of tourist NY.Great Value for Money.
QUIET rooms, fabulous staff – I've stayed at the Wolcott twice and was wowed by it each time. It's centrally located on the island, yet is on a quieter side street (31st). I like that when I'm there, I can walk anywhere AND I'm not stuck up in the Disneyfied tourist trap that the Times Square area is becoming. The staff always was super helpful and friendly: with extra towels, cots, glasses, etc. If you want mid-town, this is IT!
Count on the Wolcott! – I had just checked into the Wolcott when the blackout of 2003 hit. No one after me could get a room, because the card keys couldn't be programmed; but the Wolcott staff handled the situation admirably, bedding down dozens of people in their lobby. It's centrally located in midtown, within walking distance of just about everything (I know, because I couldn't get any money out of the ATM so I walked everywhere). The rates are very low, the people are friendly, and the hotel is shabby but comfortable. Our bathroom fixtures and flooring were spotless and recently installed. Excellent choice for those on a tight budget.
Wolcott the Saver – I have had the pleasure of staying at this hotel on several occasions, the last of which was very last minute. The staff were very accomadating to the needs of my family.
The location is awesome, with easily the best deli in New York just around the corner open 24/7 and serves the best food with affordable prices. The Empire State Building within walking distance, and Times Square.
This Beaux Arts beauty is a must-see. – The Scene
With its marble pillars, winding staircases and art-deco furniture, this 100-year-old hotel's anachronistic neo-baroque lobby can easily give guests the impression that they have just walked into a blue-blood hotel, yet rates are very reasonable. As for the location just three blocks from the Empire State Building, it can't be beat.
There are plenty of standard services to keep guests satisfied. A business center with conference rooms offers Internet and fax access. There is a fitness room upstairs and laundry service downstairs. Guest rooms are equipped with the basic clock radio, ironing board, hair dryer and cable TV with on-demand movies. They also include Internet access and Nintendo.
location and value – Having read the other reviews, we were prepared for what we got. The room was pretty large for the price but as spare was you might expect. Large closest is puzzling. Staff sort of indifferent.
Lots of construction nearby. Get a room on the
East side of the hotel to avoid the noise. Easy walk to subways and buses. Buddy Holly apparently stayed here. We had a great time.
Hotel Wolcott-Don't believe the hype – I was not expecting luxury, but a good bargain and comfortable place to stay--that is not what I received. The staff is nonchalant about everything, so don't expect friendly service or expect them to care. The elevators are small, stuffy and more than half the time, only one works. I sat through three cycles before I was able to get on with my luggage. Summer visitors: beware of the AC. The air conditioning is a LOUD window box. Unless you want to sleep in an oven, you need to have the AC on at night and the noise will keep you awake. Hot water in the morning is also a rarity. There is no AC in the hallways or elevators so everything smells like people, old food and smoke. If you are on a serious budget, you can't beat it, but don't believe the hype. This place is highly over-rated.
