“NYC Trip WJ Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

Second time at this hotel...first time had two queen beds and HUGE bathroom. This time king bed room was a disappointment. Free WiFi is huge...Ask for more pillows...wish the bathroom was bigger. Other than that we like this hotel and the location is great.

Great location, value for money for a solo traveller. Second time staying at this hotel and will use again, good bar a few doors away that served a nice cold pint whilst waiting for check in time.....

NYC prices were so high first week of June I couldn't go to some of my favorite places. Ended up at Washington Jefferson. Don't think the mattress is a real mattress. It just felt so rock hard with no bounce that I'm not quite sure what it was. Room is so drab and beige. Vacuum left in the hallway. No counter space in bathroom to put any toiletries on. Room and bathroom were clean which is very important to me but I really hope I don't have to go back there. Nady and Frank at front desk were kind and helpful.

Room Tip: One block away up 8th at 53rd is Pick a Bagel - great breakfast spot. Enjoyed easy walk to Time Wa...

the wjh is located in a very comfortable area for tourists. minutes walk from time squre and all the subway trains that will get you to wherever you need,
the hotel is basic but clean and worth the price relativly for what you can get in new york.
restaurants and supermarkets are all around.

Room Tip: the most basic room for 1 person has a tiny bed that would be to small for most men

My daughter and I recently stayed at the Washington Jefferson Hotel at 318 W. 51st Street in the Times Square neighborhood.We stayed there because some friends had already made there reservation and wanted to stay at the same hotel.. What a great find! The rooms were very clean and beds were so comfortable. The room was quite small, and gives you a feel of being in Europe. Bathroom looked like it had recently been re-modeled and shower was great! The location was perfect for Broadway shows.

I loved the location of the hotel. It's walking distance from times square, many restaurants, and shows. The street is quiet compared to others. The lobby is updated and clean. The room was smaller then expected, but it's NY! We had a nice view too. The staff are nice and helpful. If your thinking of using their gym.. just know that it's extremely small. You might as well walk and sight see for exercise. The bathroom is small and has no tub. The showers pressure isnt yhat great and the floor of the shower hurt my feet. I would definitely stay again.

The Washington Jefferson is perfect downtown location, a couple of blocks from Times Square and Central Park. The rooms are clean and quiet. The staff are always friendly and helpful. I have no problem recommending this hotel.
