Great hospitality by the hotel's staff. The rooms have a very homey feeling. It is also in a great location if you want to walk around New York. Definitely should stay here if you are visiting New York. Also the management was great!

Wow, the service was awesome as was the actual hotel room itself. I was so impressed with how kind and caring the staff was. A must stay for sure. It has a great location and the owner personally greeted us upon entry.

I stayed at the Wolcott for two nights while in New York, and in addition to the location being AMAZING, the staff was very nice and accommodating. Very fun and not to expensive if you are looking for a place to stay with a good location. It is next to the empire state building and only two blocks from time square.

This is my preferred hotel in Manhattan when I stay in NY. It is walking distance to all the places one would want to see while in the city. The reception is great as well. The bedrooms are fine, the price great compared to most other hotels in the area. My only advice would be not to use the phone provided in the room (I know, I;m sad without a cell). But even a call within the city was pretty pricey. I usually come in the winters, and it's beautifully decorated for Christmas time.

I stayed at Wolcott Hotel New York for six nights in May/June 2014 with our two sons (9 & 14). I had emailed the hotel before our trip and kindly asked for a room with the best possible view, and even received a nice reply, so the disappointment on our arrival was quite big: our triple room (one room and a smaller nook with one bed) was on the second floor with a very limited view, well actually the best possible view of the building on the other side of the street....
The room was very dim so we had to use the lights all the time. I did ask if we could possibly have a better room but the hotel was fullybooked so it didn't work.
On our first morning the shower stopped working properly and after that I killed a COCKROACH in the room! Luckily the hotel reception staff member was apologetic about this and offered us to change rooms. This would have been great, except the room was on the same floor, a bit bigger but also very dark.
The room (rooms) were otherwise quite clean and the staff was nice, but next time I book a hotel I will spend a bit extra to ensure that all the amenities are as good as it gets!
Location of Wolcott is ideal in New York city, but that is the only good thing I can truly say about this hotel.

For that location it has reasonably good price. Staff is polite and helpful.
If you're staying there, take upper floors if you can't stand the street noise.
Muffins served instead of breakfast - but i got bored with them after two days

This is a hotel I definitly will stay at again! Nice, clean, perfect location on a rather quiet street but still close to everything. Stayed with my friends in a triple room that was rather spacious. Nice wine bar across the street and at least two breakfast places just minutes away.
