Washington Jefferson Hotel is a treasure because of location-(theater district) friendly, helpful front desk team, and clean, attractive rooms. The front desk team was constantly helping me with subway routes, restaurant suggestions, wow, they were great.

WJ is located within walking distance of Times Square, Broadway, Rockefeller Center and many of the "must see" sites. There are a variety of moderately priced restaurants close buy. Subway and taxis were readily available.

The WJ Hotel was a nice place to stay. Rooms were clean and bed was very comfortable. For first time visitors the rooms are smaller than the chain hotels. Staff was friendly and for the most part helpful. A couple small issues with getting tickets for attractions in NYC. There was a Japanese bar and restaurant attached to the hotel....

The WJ hotel was clean and updated, however, our room very small and on an outside wall. The window room air conditioner must not have been properly sealed in the window because the outside air was drafting directly into our room. The radiator heat had been turned off in the hotel because other areas of the hotel were warm so...

Stayed here only one night and did through Hotwire because of the prices of others around. Between fees and taxes still payed close to $300 for a box of a room. They call themselves a "boutique" hotel but the rooms are small and outdated and reminded me of a dorm room. Even the tv wasn't not enhanced. The bathroom was...

Stayed two nights on a business trip - we have expense budget and this hotel was closest to my limit. Would I stay here for pleasure? No. I would pay more and go somewhere else. I do have to say, the front desk staff couldn't be nicer. They recommended lunch and dinner places, arranged for cabs, etc. The location was...

The hotel was clean, nice staff and perfect location. No breakfast included , but they offeedr coffee and tea on weekday mornings.The room itself was a bit small, but it didn't disturb us. Shower was okay and most important there weren't noises during the night.

Anniversary trip to NYC. Great location, but small (standard) room with no nightstands. Window unit AC makes it sound like the window is opened all night. We heard at least 3 late night early am garbage pick ups per night. We bought ear plugs at the drugstore at the end of the block which helped. Heating by radiator not controlled...

Upon checking in we were told we were getting a room upgrade. I believe this wasn't true and in fact we got an inferior room. We have stayed in the hotel before and our room was small but very well appointed, with lovely furniture and linens. The room we were given this time was spartan, the hallway out side was...

Very great hotel, near Times Square, 5 minutes walk, very clean room and nice people at the Reception desk. Perfect for staying here for a 4-5 days or more! Problems resolved 5 min after we asked at the reception desk. Prices very attractive for the quality of the hotel.

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.
