    Solo in New York

    I really enjoyed my stay at The Wolcott. Check in staff were very friendly. My room on the first night had an excellent view of the Empire State Building but was noisy. The front desk staff were very accommodating when i asked to move and it was no problem at all and my second room i could barely hear the traffic!! Location was great .. about a 15 min walk to Times Square .. perfect. I would definitely stay at The Wolcott again.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Stayed here for 9 nights on the 12th floor, with views of the Empire State Building. The Wolcott is an older style hotel, with a lovely lobby and clean, comfortable rooms. Yes, the building is starting to show its age in places (we experienced some plumbing issues) but the location is fantastic, the beds are comfortable and the price reasonable. I do wish however, that WiFi was free ($9.95/ night for one device or $13.95 for two) but if you are in one of the rooms at the front of the building, you may be able to connect to the nearby free LinkNYC wifi hotspot. The staff are pleasant and accommodating, and ready to help you. Street noise can be an issue for sensitive sleepers, but I certainly had no real issue with it - probably because I was up so high. Overall my stay was pleasant and comfortable, and I would certainly consider staying here again.

    A place with character at a reasonable rate.

    My wife and I had four days vacation in Manhattan. This midtown location has plenty of early 20th century character and is very handy to Penn Station and of course the subway is never more than a couple of blocks away. We had some trouble changing the flow of water with the over bath shower and the room A/C was a bit noisy but this is Manhattan. I’d happily come back.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Challenging conditions

    First there was a huge draft coming out of the window because the air conditioner was never removed and the room was freezing. Second the TV channel changer didn’t work and recorded several visits. Long delays to get service of any kind.

  • 6.0.Good

    Front desk staff are pretty curt and the rooms are basic. Saw fraying carpet and peeling wallpaper in the room. Wasn't given the time that the muffin they serve as continental breakfast was over. It was 9am. Maintenance man grabbed us each one and was very helpful where front desk staff was pretty stoic. Stored our luggage for the day and had to go back to place it and pick it up without anyone following so there is risk of someone taking your stuff when grabbing their own.

    Okay place

    Great staff, the hotel was very peaceful itself. Nice to be informed of the light breakfast. The rooms were clean, sort of drab, with these attractive window skirt things, otherwise the city view would have been terrific. Overall it was okay!
