Edith Wharton stayed at this unassuming hotel back when it was a Beaux-Arts glamour palace. Now students, international travelers, and conventioneers grab the unimpressive rooms' impressively low rates. Tilt your head back when you enter the lobby and the chandeliers, marble columns, and ornate mold...

With its marble pillars, winding staircases and Art Deco furniture, this 100-year-old hotel’s anachronistic Neo-Baroque lobby can easily give guests the impression that they have just walked into a blue-blood hotel. Not so. Rates are very reasonable here. As for the location just three blocks f...

Bad experience. Only one working elevator, which was small. Rooms were not very clean. Water from faucets was brown. Everything in the room was old and needed a facelift. Bad lighting.

Best Value at the Wolcott - user review
Close to shopping and attractions but in a quiet neighborhood you get the best bang for the buck at the Wolcott. Good sized, clean and quiet suites allow one person to get sleep if the other wants to stay up. The hotel is older but none of the charm is lost over time. The lobby is an attraction unto...

Having read the other reviews, we were prepared for what we got. The room was pretty large for the price but as spare was you might expect. Large closest is puzzling. Staff sort of indifferent.Lots of construction nearby. Get a room on the East side of the hotel to avoid the noise. Easy walk to subw...

Count on the Wolcott! - user review
I had just checked into the Wolcott when the blackout of 2003 hit. No one after me could get a room, because the card keys couldn't be programmed; but the Wolcott staff handled the situation admirably, bedding down dozens of people in their lobby. It's centrally located in midtown, within walking di...

Wolcott the Saver - user review
I have had the pleasure of staying at this hotel on several occasions, the last of which was very last minute. The staff were very accomadating to the needs of my family.The location is awesome, with easily the best deli in New York just around the corner open 24/7 and serves the best food with affo...

Hotel Wolcott Don´t believe the hype - user review
I was not expecting luxury, but a good bargain and comfortable place to stay that is not what I received. The staff is nonchalant about everything, so don't expect friendly service or expect them to care. The elevators are small, stuffy and more than half the time, only one works. I sat through thre...

Home away from Home...A night at Wolcott - user review
It was Valentine's Day and my better half and I were going to see Rufus Wainwright. We wanted to stay in NYC but didn't want to pay such high costs for a one night stay in the city. To avoid a big cost and cab ride home, we foudn the Wolcott hotel.It was so nice, so inexpensive and so close to every...

QUIET rooms, fabulous staff - user review
I've stayed at the Wolcott twice and was wowed by it each time. It's centrally located on the island, yet is on a quieter side street (31st). I like that when I'm there, I can walk anywhere AND I'm not stuck up in the Disneyfied tourist trap that the Times Square area is becoming. The staff always w...

Clean, comfy, quiet - user review
My boyfriend and I stayed at the Hotel Wolcott on a Saturday and Sunday night. The room was small, but we did little more in there than sleep, so that was fine. We had a room at the end of the hall with no view, but it was very quiet; in fact, when we returned Sunday night, we heard noises from othe...

We found a great deal! - user review
My friend and I stayed at The Hotel Wolcott recently and were a little worried about what kind of room we'd get for only $99 per night. We were pleasantly suprised. The room had two twin beds that were comfortable (especially after days of walking around the city), it had a hair dryer, ironing board...

Good CLEAN Hotel - user review
My husband and I just returned from NYC (December 2002). We stayed at the Hotel Wolcott and thought it was pretty good. Now, if you are looking for a nice, big, luxurious hotel, this is not the place for you. But if you are looking for a safe, clean place to spend the night, this hotel is great. I w...

Great Stay for a Great Price - user review
My son and I just returned from our second trip to NY where we stayed at the Hotel Wolcott both times. I would definently stay there again. The rooms are comfortable and clean. We had plenty of hot water, and the staff were always very friendly and accomodating. They just rewallpapered a lot of the ...

Nice hotel located in the center of Manhattan. Staff was very friendly. Room was not fancy but clean and up to date. We were upgraded to a suite which was basically 2 rooms. Air conditioning in the room great however no air in the very small and very slow elevators. A staff member did inform us, how...

On a friends recommendation I stayed at the Hotel Wolcott. I was pleasantly surprised when I checked in. The lobby was beautiful and big.I was expecting a old run down property because the rate was so low ( I have heard horror stories about low priced hotels in New York). As for the rooms they were ...

European Wanna Be - user review
The Price was right. I liked the lobby and the personnel was friendly and helpful. It was hard for me to get my bags to my room. I had just returned from Europe and had two very large suitcases. It was extremely difficult to get my bags through some of the tight doorways and to my room. No bellman. ...

Great view of Empire State Building - user review
We recently stayed at Hotel Wolcott for one week. The clean, comfortable room had two twin beds and a nice bathroom. It was definitely big enough for two people. The best part was the view. Our room was on the 12th floor and had a great view of the Empire State Building. If you stay at the Wolcott, ...

Not fancy, but... - user review
You will be happy with this hotel if you are pretty much independent and believe that a hotel room is just for sleeping at night. Most of the room's floor area was occupied by the oversized bed and there was not much room to move around or open your luggage. Hotel staff didn't seem very willing to h...

After a long day pounding the streets of NYC a person needs a place to lay their head, right The Wolcott fits the bill, and rather well for the price.It all boils down to expectations. I didn't expect to find a w...

What You´d Expect for the Price - user review
I was a bit concerned when I made my reservation at the Hotel Wolcott. It seemed as if any hotel in Manhattan for less than $200 a night would be a dump. Nevertheless, $180 a night isn't cheap and I expected a certain level ...

Wolcott Hotel budget hotel plus great location! - user review

My husband and I were told by a friend that this was a decent economical hotel. I believe we paid $137 a night and stayed 6 nights. The lobby of the hotel looks rather opulent, but believe meit ends right there. The elevator...

Discomfort with a Touch of Class - user review
This was our first and only trip to New York. We were only staying one night, so we did not want to liquidate our life savings on a super luxurious hotel room. After thumbing through a New York travel guide, we found the Wo...

Infested With Cockroaches! - user review
Every floor in this hotel is absolutely infested with cockroaches of all sizes. We kept asking to switch rooms, and still, more cockroaches from the 2nd floor to the 11th. DO NOT STAY HERE! We finally saw a giant one and ended up leaving on a Saturday night at 2 a.m. to another hotel. Absolute horro...

Forget Wilcott, more like Will NOT!!! - user review
This hotel was a breeding ground for cockroaches! In fact they are so prevalent that I'm sure they'll be in charge of the front desk soon. Everything from a horrible concierge (if you could even call it that), to one very old barely working elevator, stinky hallways, freezing rooms and staff who loo...

Roaches were everywhere - user review
We made reservations in May 2005 for a two night stay in September 2005. Not only were we given a microscopic room (barely enough room on only one side to get out); hardly even adequate for one person, let alone two! The bathroom was full of roaches. Every time you picked something up, at least thre...

Don´t stay here, it´s a nightmare - user review
You'll spend your entire stay waiting for the elevator. No amenities. Sink was so small, you get soaked if you wash your hands or brush your teeth. Mirror placed too high to see oneself. ...

I would never recommend this hotel. Initially we thought the place would have old world charm being 100 years old. But the hotel hasn't been updated in 100 years. The rooms are dark, dank and they smell, specifically of stale cigarettes. This hotel needs some serious upgrading. My windows had tape a...

Nice Hotel overall. Close to popular tourist spots (Times Sq, Empire state 3 blocks away, etc). Green subway only 3 blocks away, blue and yellow are only a bit farther. Central location for trips to downtown and uptown. Will definitely stay there again on a return trip because I'd rather spend money...

There were no linens for the pullout bed. No adjustment for the heat. View was bad. Rooms were small. On the positive side the bed was comfortable and the bathroom was full size. Having two TV's was nice. The continental breakfast had a minimal selection....

No title - user review
Very rude staff, and the rooms suggest you are staying in a halfway house, not a hotel. The smell of cigarette smoke and fried food was disgusting. While the location is convenient, this hotel should not be offered to anyone other than the budget traveler And at $180 a night, it hardly qualifies for...
