Very inviting reception area and welcoming efficient staff in a perfect location to get to all the prime spots. Once you get behind the reception the standard of the hotel plummets badly. It is very shabby and in need of a massive update and refurb. The room we were allocated was at the front of the hotel and much smaller...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 14 April 2017

Since discovering this gem of a hotel three years ago, it is our "go to" hotel whenever we are in NYC and our relatives cannot put us up. We really enjoy the funkiness of the neighborhood. Many great restaurants, close to Times Square without all the touristy hubbub. Walking distance to the Intrepid, Radio City, Rockefeller Center and for the...

Room was not big but we think it was more room then you would have in other places in NYC. Bathroom was very nice and the beds were good. Location was very good. Times Square and metrostations were nearby.

The location of this hotel can not be beat. 1.5 blocks from Broadway. Lots of good food options within a 2 block radius. Room was clean and bathroom was well stocked. Only drawbacks were an uncomfortable bed and coffee was only available from 7-9am Monday to Friday. If you book here make sure to request their driver Peggy to pick...

Recently spent a three day weekend at the WJH. It is a nicely appointed property with a bar and Japanese restaurant adjoining. A refurbished small hotel. Room was neat and clean, bathroom a bit small for a king size bedroom but the shower was excellent and the room had some nice touches. Bed was excellent and clean linens by an...

I have stayed at the WJ for years - ten as a matter of fact. Despite the age of the hotel and the many renovations during that time, the staff and the service make up for any possible inconvenience. the hotel is slightly off the beaten path, yet very very convenient location. I always feel welcome, and reccommend the WJ...

We stayed at the Washington Jefferson Hotel as we wanted something close to the theater and meetings in the Times Square area. Also, we had heard about great restaurants in the Hell's Kitchen area and were not disappointed. Be forewarned -- rooms are tiny tiny -- but that's true of many NY hotels! Staff was very friendly and helpful! The...

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.
