This hotel is in a good location, on the edge of now trendy Hell's Kitchen, with some very good small restaurants nearby. But it is dilapidated (the rather glossy foyer is misleading). My room was unbearably hot (in November!) and while one window wouldn't open at all, the other fell completely wide open - on to the street. The bathroom...

While this hotel does have a few negatives, for the price you cannot beat the location. It is close to Times Square, Broadway, MoMA, Rockefeller Center, and for more distant locales, the subway is only one block away. The staff was wonderful, from the valet, bellman and desk clerk. We were originally given the wrong room and the error was...

Nothing good about this place!!!! I have stayed at the WJ on several occasions and knew the rooms to be small. But in the past, the service and experience have been fine. NOT THIS TIME!!! Within 3 minutes of check-in, my wallet was lifted; likely in the elevator by a "permanent resident." When I alerted the front desk staff, I...

We were in town for the weekend to see the Rocketts, which was a short straight walk from the hotel. We were booked in the front of the hotel on the 6th floor. You did get street noise at night, but not to the point that it kept u awake. The rooms are small. We had one with 2 queen...

We booked our room through Hotwire and as we have found with other Hotwire bookings, you get the substandard room with issues. Our issues were the tiny size of the room, the rock hard bed and the steam heat which you could not turn off. We had to run the air conditioning on high just to have the room a...

We had a problem trying to decide on where to stay in New York for our whirlwind stop. Our priority was to be somewhere convenient to Times Square and the subway. In the end we took a last minute deal via tripwire and got a room at the Washington Jefferson. We arrived mid afternoon and were greeted by very friendly...

We had two rooms over four nights. We got in late and got the noisiest rooms on the 2nd floor. We complained straight away and the staff were very helpful. While we were out the next day they moved us to the third and fourth floors, round the back. We spent very little time in the hotel, so this was...

I know this hotel is not for everyone, but for me - the budget-conscious, location-aware younger traveler - this was the perfect spot. This property has personality and when I travel to NYC - I want everything to be memorable and this hotel helped in that endeavor.

I stayed here because I got a good rate and let's face if you are spending too much time in a hotel in New York, then something is wrong! It's functional. Staff are extremely helpful and kind. The wifi is free and works well. My room was to the back and was extremely dark. The shower worked well and good...

I will preface this review with a warning to Timeshare owners - if you are from RCI and got a "deal" to come to this hotel, don't accept it!! It is a huge rip off. I overpaid for the travel certificate to stay at this hotel. The room we got vs. their on line rate was far cheaper. Avoid all...

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.
