The Washington Jefferson is a good place to stay in NYC. The staff was very helpful upon checking, the bellboys were more than willing to cart our heavy bags around, the front desk staff were helpful in finding us things to do and recommending places to eat. The room was renovated beautifully, but was very small. When the bell boy... More

The hotel has a superb location, walking distance to the theatre district, Central Park, and great food in Hell's Kitchen. I traveled solo and only needed room for myself. The rooms are minimal, and that was fine by me (if you're on vacation, you should be out and about, not spending your time in the hotel). My room was very... More

The location of this hotel is very good for times square. Quite a basic hotel but theres so much to see you dont really need anything else. The room was quite small but for the price we cant complain too much.

I'm currently staying at the WJ for eleven nights. I've been traveling through the US and this is by far the worst hotel I've come across, the rest have been really great.

WJ is in a great little neighborhood yet close enough to some of NYC's top attractions. Upon checking in, I requested that I not be situated next to an elevator (I had read a review that mentioned there was an issue with room 101 & the elevator noise). The front desk clerk said that there were no other rooms available... More

Enjoyed my stay here. The staff were friendly and the room was compact but had all I needed and was clean. The Location was excellent - walking distance to Times Square .

Just a perfect place to stay if your buget is enough for 3 stars hotel. The hotel is located in the quiet part of 51W street but only few blocks away from Time square and subway stations to almost every part of Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens. There are many restaurants and cute NY style bars nearby. We enjoy very much... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
