“Great location, small room”
Reviewed 28 January 2014

Stayed here for 7 nights on a trip to NYC. Tge location was great for us as we were going to a show, sightseeing, shopping etc. Very close to 50th&8th Subway. Room was always clean and freshly madeup everyday.

Only issues were the size of the room - it was quite small. Also the noise from the A/C units could be bad at times.

The hotel is in a excelente location, very close to Times Square, The rooms are very small, they do not have space to acomodate a desk, when I needed to work on the PC I had to sit in my bag and work with the PC on the bed.

The building could use renovation, but between the staff and the size of the rooms, and the area, this is a great place to stay. Hours after checking in, a member of the cleaning staff attended to a neighboring room and repeatedly slammed the door, and there is no way to control the temperature of the room. Otherwise, it was a great place.

Great location, especially for access to theater district. Easy access to subway as well. Room is snug but that is fine if you are not spending much time in it. Staff are friendly and helpful. Good selection of bars and restaurants in immediate area.

I had booked a petite room (which was to have a single bed) as it just me travelling, but on arrival at 1am, they kindly upgraded me to a standard room with a double bed. Good start! The room was on the 4th floor, and was small and clean, with a lovely view on to West 51st Street. The bathroom was small but clean, and the shower was good. Checking in and out was a pleasant experience, and all the staff were very friendly. All in all, great value for the location, and I would definitely stay here again.

The WJ was a great place to stay during our trip to NYC. Centrally located and very clean. The staff were also friendly and helpful. Great value for money. Would recommend for people just wanting a basic but very nice place to stay at night.

First time we stayed here and it definitely is a great location for walking to everything you want to see and do. The staff is really friendly and service oriented. The price we paid was decent by NYC standards. The only thing that can be improved is the control of the room temperature. It had to be done manually by two different engineers and we had to keep windows open to keep the room cooler than 80 degrees. Rooms are small but clean and nice. Would definitely stay here again.
