This is my 7th trip to New York, this isnt my favourite hotel but it isnt the worst ive stayed in either. I dont ususally pick hotels based on the amenities of the hotel, esp in New York as i just use it as a place to sleep and then go out and enjoy the city! This hotel is steps form 5th Avenue and the Empire State Building and 2 mins from Macys. I would say 7 mins from Times Square and there is a metro station at the end of the street, thats all i needed.
There is no wifi or bell man at the hotel, there is a front desk which is open 24/7 and the door is locked after 10/11pm so its very secure, not that we felt at all vulnerable in the area. The room we had was on the front of the hotel, it was over the road so there was a little bit of noise, however that was more than compensated for by the view of the Empire State Building we had from our window!! The windows were large and I could lie in bed and see the building - fab! The room we had was a twin, it was large enough for 2 girls, with all of our luggage (4 suitcases in the end!!). The decor was not to my taste (quite chintzy) but it was clean and seemed to have been newly decorated so I cant complain!
We got this hotel for a great deal as part of a package with 5 nights in Vegas and 3 nights in New York and it was a really good price. If i could secure the Wolcott at a budget price I would definitely stay here again.
