“A charming hotel”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

Comfortable rooms in a charming historical building with a very convenient location in Manhattan. The nearest metro station and some sights such as the Empire State Building are within walking distance. Its grand lobby and opulent interior seem to bring you back to the days of old New York - think The Great Gatsby! And you get to enjoy complimentary breakfast comprising of coffee and muffins served daily in the lobby.

Stayed 2 nights for our daughter's first trip to NYC. Everything was as beautiful as advertized. All of the charm of 1904 with convenience of 2014. We had a suite on the 11th floor. The room was clean and comfortable. Staff was very helpful. Muffins and coffee in the morning was great. Location was the best, quiet but within 3 blocks of Empire State Bldg and Madison Square Park. We would definitely recommend and we will return

This is a grand old hotel ideally located for all midtown sights. It offers a real slice of 1904 NY with fantastic decor from the period. Rooms are smart and clean with comfortable beds and effective if slightly noisy air con. Staff were polite and helpful and the hotel has the added bonus of daily complimentary muffins and coffee in the lobby. There are also luggage storage lockers, good wifi and boarding pass printing facilities (both cost but reasonably priced) and a fitness room (untried so I'm not sure what that amounts to). Overall very good value for a very impressive stay.

this hotel was exactly as promised on the website. The room was small but clean and comfortable, the lobby was amazing and the free coffee and muffins were an added extra. the only negative was that one of the girls on the conciege desk was very abrupt and not that helpful, the other one that we encountered was great. The hotel was in easy walking distance of times square and the empire state, the nearest subway was a couple of blocks away but we found it easier to walk to times square if we needed the subway.
Overall we would recommend this hotel to all.

Room Tip: An added bonus was for us the fact that we could choose a smoking room which is very rare these days...

This hotel is in a great location for everything. The staff were polite and the rooms clean and comfortable. For a NY hotel, the rates are excellent. It is also nice to have coffee and muffins served in the lobby each morning. Would stay here again.

Just returned from a 6 night stay in the Wolcott hotel. We were a party of 5 consisting of 2 adults and our boys aged 14,18,20. Our bedroom on 11th floor was small but adequate. The boys had a suite with excellent views towards the Empire State Building .Beds in both rooms comfy and clean. Hairdryer and iron available in rooms. Staff extremely helpful and happy to help with any queries.
Perfect location and in a quiet (ish) street. We bought a 7 day unlimited rider metrocard and made full use of it! Hotel close to subway station. Fresh muffins and coffee were an added bonus and this was served every morning in the foyer from 0630-1000. Would recommend this hotel.

this hotel is greatly located, at walking distance to the Empire State and to Times Square, close to subway stations (on different lines). The hotel does offer some muffins and coffee in the morning for you to start your day on a fresh way. They also have a simple but efficient concierge desk.
