This hotel is very well situated. Complimentary parking is offered at 45 $ per day. The staff is very customer oriented. The room is quite small, but the price is fair. The service is excellent. There is a good variety of restaurants neerby. Quite satisfied overall!

My stay at the Washington Jefferson (strange name) was fine. The petite room (one twin bed) was really tiny--I've seen bigger dorm rooms. But the hotel was clear and upfront about that, so no complaints. The location was great--a block to the subway, a block to the restaurants of 9th Ave., one of the best eating streets in Manhattan.

The lobby is lovely & the staff were always very friendly & helpful. We stayed in a twin room (2 single beds). There was literally no room to swing a cat! One very...

Very friendly staff, a minor problem with heating solved within minutes. Good job, we appreciated it so much. Guess we will be back sooner or later for a next trip to that beautiful city and that nice hotel.

Very nice location - subway, Port Authority, theatres, Times Square, Central Park.. There's a supermarket about 2 min walk from the hotel so I'd sometimes get some food from there. Room was enough for 2 persons so luckily I had it all to myself. No mini bar though but it was a bit cold in Nov so I'd leave my...

This was my second stay at the WJ Hotel. The location is excellent - close to transportation and Times Square but out of the traffic and fray of tourism. The rooms are typical in size for a NYC hotel but well maintained and appointed. The only negative for me is the bed - very firm! But that is also a...

I have stayed at the WJ several times before and have always been happy with my stay. It is a great location and and a good value for the price paid. The rooms are small, clean, and a friendly staff. Generally stay there in the off season when they offer their best rates. Very easy to see room availability online...

Our flight arrived at JFK at 6am. We got a taxi to the hotel and unfortunately (even though we requested it) we weren't able to get early check-in. There is a washroom in the lobby where we were able to freshen up, and they stored our bags for the day. We went out exploring and then were able to check-in...

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
