Great location. Hotel was settled in a neighborhood with a few restaurants and apartment/brownstones nearby. Room was clean, nice and modern, but very small. We were only there to get ready and sleep, but just be prepared the room and bathroom are both small. Even the doors are small. We had a room facing the street and it was a...

We spent a very enjoyable 3 nights at the Washington Jefferson Hotel. We arrived midday on Friday and were pleased that our room was ready for check in. The staff was very pleasant and helpful at all times. Our room – a standard queen - was small, but clean, comfortable and quiet…all we needed to enjoy a few days in...

This older and small hotel is located in midtown walking distance to shows and Times Square. If you are looking for sparkle and full service, this is not your hotel. If you want reasonably priced in a good location and will not be spending a lot of time in your room, book here. Make sure you book when there is...

This hotel, on W51st Street, is ideally located for the tourist visitor to Manhattan. It is within walking distance of the opera and Central Park to the north and all of the main Broadway theatres. Times Square is steps away, yet the location is on a quiet street. The rooms are very small, but adequate. Essentially just a bed, nightstand...

The staff at the WJ were helpful, warm and engaging. The hotel was clean, comfortable and well-located to easily reach and enjoy a number of Manhattan neighborhoods. Prices are really good for what you get! Highly recommend.

Rooms are small, and not quite modern but it's clean. Bed was hard and uncomfortable. Heater made a terrible noise all the time, didn't let me sleep. Got my room at the 1st floor and it was really noisy in the outside.

It was a totally bad experience, there are the old rooms and the renovated rooms, and you are more likely to be given the old room which is horrible. And there are a few "standard rooms" at the very back of the hotel behind the gym and the Japanese restaurant on the ground floor, those are apparently being rented long...

The hotel was under renovation when we arrived, no mention was made about this on the website when I booked the room- surprise! When we checked in the front desk staff was friendly, but thought it would be a good idea to inform us that we could have qualified for a government rate, but since we didn't notice that on...

This hotel is in the theater district. There are many good restaurants within walking distance. The staff at the desk is very friendly. During our Saturday night stay we were allowed to check in early which was a plus since we were heading to a matinee and were able to freshen up first. We were also upgraded without any fan...

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.
