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...

An older but nice hotel close to Times Square, the theater district and Central Park. Rooms are on the smaller size which is typical of New York. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The only concern I had was that there was a no refund policy once your booked. Travelocity didn't point that out. Rooms do not have any fridges...

While the rooms are relatively small... The very good pricing and location makes this a perfect NYC weekend room for one or two people. I had the smallest room they offered. You're just sleeping there anyway...

We had a wonderful 6 night stay at the Jefferson. From the moment we arrived to the very end it was just delightful. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Our room was all that we wanted. The food and service at the hotel was excellent. Not so sure about the guy playing the piano - could do better.

This is a small hotel on a side street in midtown NYC. The staff was efficient and friendly. Short walk to Lincoln Center and minutes from the theaters. The hotel is a little dated, but if you can overlook that, you will have a good time. Restaurants are close by , as well as a supermarket.

The Washington Jefferson hotel is okay. The rooms range from small to large and are clean. The beds are on a platform and are hard, not quite the bed of nails, but very firm. I stayed in 2 different rooms last week, one with 2 queens and one with 1king, both bathrooms were small (but okay). The room with 2...

We stayed at this hotel for a week. The location is fantastic, close to everything. The front desk staff were always friendly and helpful. The rooms are so small and the bed terribly uncomfortable. The air conditioning was on 24/7 and still the room was too warm when we got n at night. I hate to think what the rooms...

We stayed at this hotel last week. The location is great for vacation in the Time Square area. Staff was very helpful. The room was about 8'x12', small by my standard, but normal for NYC. Room and areas were clean

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.
