The Wolcott is definitely an old hotel with a lot of charm. The staff was OK in helpfulness, but I didn't feel they were extending themselves as much as they could or should. One Concierge was no help and didn't seem to want to help. Room was OK and bed OK. In other words, nothing too wonderful, but adequate. Location...

We stayed here over the christmas new year period it was a great location and most of the staff were friendly. One Concierge however just couldn't be bothered to help anyone. The beds were comfortable and our room suited our needs - there were three of us so we got a triple room so that our son could sleep in...

Don't ever book this hotel if you prefer a modern, fashion style. However, this hotel with more than 100 year pride will take you back to the good old days. Location is good, no problem to visit the Midtown New York all the way to central park by foot if you enjoy walking. Many restaurants, one supermarket and Korean Town...

Stayed at HW for one night and it was more than fine. Small room but clean and comfortable. Great location near madison square garden and staff was friendly. The fitness room was lacking but usuable. Coffee and muffins in morning was a nice touch. Would stay here again for sure!

When you walk into the lobby you are transformed to another era in history. It is so beautiful. The crystal chandeliers and gold wainscoting along with the striking colors just takes your breath away. The staff was wonderful to us. Especially helpful, friendly and courteous was "Jeto" of the desk staff. He helped us locate the places we wanted to...

We stayed at the Wolcott for 3 nights at the end of Feb this year. Despite other comments about rude staff we found everyone to be fine, not over friendly but courteous enough. If the weather is cold *beware of the radiators* in your room, the first thing my daughter did was burn her hand. The heat in the room...

The Wolcott Hotel is without a great hotel; decor in the lobby is very 40's/50's style with great elegance, service by concierge and other staff was very good and the location is fantastic being just 5 mins walk from Times Square, and all the shopping avenues (3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, Madison, Park, Lexington) are all writhing 5-10 mins walking distance...

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.
