About The Hotel Wolcott

Designated a New York City Landmark, The Hotel Wolcott offers convenient accommodations in the heart of Midtown. The hotel is just 250 metres from the iconic Empire State Building.

Air-conditioned guest rooms feature a private bathroom with a shower or tub. In-room amenities include a laptop-sized safe and a TV with cable channels, pay-per-view movies, and video games. Upgraded suites add a parlour with additional seating.

The hotel’s ornate lobby, with its crystal chandelier and Neo-Classical architecture, harks back to the hotel’s glorious past, while a fitness centre and meeting/event spaces bring the property into the 21st century. There’s also a gift shop and laundry facilities.

A basic continental breakfast is provided each morning, while Bread & Butter, a minute’s walk away is a popular choice for any meal.

Positive Reviews

Three minutes from Empire State Building

Tourists looking to see Manhattan’s many iconic sights find the hotel to be conveniently positioned. Reviewers point out that the property is just three minutes’ walk from the Empire State Building, while the likes of Times Square and Madison Square Garden are easily reachable on foot.

First-rate customer service

Guests are made to feel welcome at this hotel. Reviewers are quick to praise the hotel staff, reporting that their needs are taken care of quickly and efficiently by friendly and helpful employees. In particular, the hotel concierge receives much acclaim for his knowledgeable and gracious approach.

Clean and quiet accommodations

Travellers generally respond positively to their accommodations, which are reported to be kept clean and tidy, if not a little worn around the edges. Somewhat surprisingly, rooms are also said to be quiet, with guests mentioning that the general din of New York City doesn’t manage to penetrate the solid soundproofing.

Negative Reviews

Older property showing signs of wear

While the hotel lobby retains some of the historic building’s splendour, travellers suggest guest rooms do not. They complain that wallpaper and carpets are outdated and in need of a refresh. Meanwhile, noisy plumbing and poor drainage prove to be concerns in the ageing bathrooms.

Expensive Internet charges

Wi-Fi is available at the hotel on a paid basis, with guests expected to pay a daily surcharge that permits them access to the Internet on one device at a time. This arrangement proves unpopular with travellers, especially those who report frustratingly slow Internet access after paying.

Breakfast a little too basic

The hotel offers a complimentary breakfast, according to reviewers. However, the early-morning meal is said to consist of just a muffin and a coffee, an arrangement that guests describe as being a little too basic.
