Large rooms, good location plus free muffins :)

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 23, 2010

The Wolcott Hotel is close to the Empire State Building and has reasonable room rates. It's an older hotel but the rooms are clean and very large by NY standards, with ensuite bathrooms. The free coffee and muffins in the lobby each morning is a nice touch too :)

Unique Quality: This hotel has a faded grandeur - check out the ceiling and chandeliers in the lobby area. The luggage storage area obviously used to be an impressive ballroom - pity the current owners haven't renovated it.

Directions: Just a five minute walk to either the Empire State Building or Herald Square (Macys)

budget hotel in a great loation

The Hotel Wolcott - it is a budget hotel in a great loation 2 blocks south of the empire state building.

Warning - showers are fine as long as no one else on the floor is using it too but baths are good after a day on your feet & fill up quickly.

Try to get an upper floor - the decor is much nicer - we stayed in 1019 which had great views of the empire state building.

There are occasional odd smells - I think from people eating in their rooms but 10 minuits of air con & your fine.

Bed was the most comfortable I've ever had in a hotel & air con was good if not the quietest model.

Unique Quality: Basically you sould be so tired that all you want to do is sleep & if so this hotel is perfect.

Check out the Heartlands Brewery/Bar under the empire state building - beer & food is great.

Directions: 2 blocks south of the empire state building.

In '98 I stayed in the Wolcott...

by written on August 26, 2002

In '98 I stayed in the Wolcott Hotel on 30th Street East otherwise known as E 30th St.

It was a rather old but decent hotel with rooms that had private baths... it was undergoing some renovations when we stayed there, so overnight, the lobby was spruced up with new carpet and furniture!

In '01, we stayed in New Jersey at a hotel... I don't remember the name of it, just that it was one of the big motel/hotel chains like Best Western or something... didn't like it that we were not in New York proper.

Unique Quality: The location that makes it really convenient! You could even walk all the way from 5th Avenue down if you want... or walk from Times Square back too.

We did just that after watching a Broadway play one night! It was late, but the streets were still quite alive, and we had no difficulty or real sense of fear... of course we kept to the main street which was pretty well lit, and walked briskly... ;p

Directions: Wolcott Hotel on E 30th St. is a pretty good location. You'd be in walking distance to the Empire State Building, St. Francis Church, Macy's and the subway station. There's also Herald Square which is

Starting at around $110 for a double I think it's pretty good value for it's location.

Unique Quality: Good value hotel in a great position, nothing too fancy but very comfortable.

Directions: 4 West 31st St. This is ideal if arriving at Penn station, just a couple of blocks away, leave station on 31st exit, easy walk. Very close to Empire State Building, we could see it from our room, wow.
