Washington Jefferson Hotel
Ranked #275 of 470 Hotels in New York City
Reviewed 29 May 2014

The location of WJ was phenomenal for the Broadway shows we planned to see. I expected the lobby to be more palatial for the price. Looking back, the hotel reminds me of where I stayed in Rome. All amenities were of very high quality, packed into just enough space to get the job done. Street noise was present, but that's part of the NYC experience. It's not a low-budget hotel, but you will like the accommodations and location if you stay here.

I have stayed at this hotel before. Always clean, modern, friendly staff, good location, parking garage across the street, prompt room service. Last time no problems. This time ac in room 378 was terribly loud. Didn't have time for maintenance to get in there because I had to rush out for my meetings and didn't trust anyone with my belongs alone. Hotel was sold out so no other rooms avail. So had to sleep in humidity with ac off, or deal with the noise and be cool. But overall I do enjoy this hotel

Stayed here for 5 nights. Found the staff helpful. The room had two double beds both very comfortable. Safe, TV, iron & hairdryer as you'd expect, paying this sort of money. Would have liked a fridge in the room.
Shower was quite small, but did it's purpose.
Location was ok, about 10-15 min walk to Times Square. I would recommend this hotel.
But would probably stay in another hotel if passing through NYC, just for variety.

I've stayed here several times for business. Some of the rooms are small, but they are clean and the staff is helpful. Nice hotel for the money. I don't have more to say but they are requiring me to write at least 200 words! :)

Room Tip: Ask for a larger one

This is a good hotel located in the west side of manhattan for two. The rooms are small but the price is reasonable - for New York. It is close to most efverything in central Manhattan. While it is a fancy locale, it is a good place for a couple to stay where cost is important but a reasonable level of comfort desired.

Room Tip: If you need a huge bathroom, this is not the place for you.

The location was excellent - walking distance to all major midtown attractions - lots of restaurants and pubs right outside the door. The service was excellent - the staff were gracious, helpful and informative. The WJ may very well be the best valued hotel for its location. Would recommend and return :)

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights. It is a lovely and quiet boutique hotel. The rooms are very comfortable and the amenities are excellent. The bathroom is very large and beautiful with marble and granite. The location is excellent. It is so close to Times Square and Broadway. I got the rooms for a very good price on Hotwire.

I got somewhat nervous when I got on the elevator. It has a door that closes when you get on. One of the staff members even got on the elevator with my husband and I to make sure that we were okay.
