    Nice hotel in good location about 4 blocks from times square. not as cramped as i thought it would be for new york.

    WI FI did not work the whole 3 days i was there. nothing got done about it and it was not good enough. some staff were good but others were not. Hopeless!!

    My stay at the Washington Jefferson was great. I loved that it was only a few blocks away from times square; the location could not have been anymore convenient.

    The location was excellent and the staff were most helpful and friendly. The room was a little on the dark side as it faced onto a courtyard but this was not really a problem. The air conditioning was noisy. One point I would like to make is that there were no tea or coffee making facilities available either in the rooms or at reception. Having stayed at numerous hotels in America we have always had this facility before, and although there was a deli down the street, it would have been nice to have had the option to make beverages in the hotel.

    Friendly staff. Clean room.

    Old hotel with single and very slow elevator. Inflexible manager. Thin room walls - so the room was noisy. The hotel uses a bait and switch tactic it appears - provided a standard room which on Booked.net was different from what I saw on Booked.net. A room with no space around the bed! Housekeeping responded immediately when complained that it was hot - his solution was also quick - opened the window! Changed room - charged me extra and wanted me to stay two days for the lower additional charge. The upgraded room was heated by old heating vents, and cooled by window Air conditioner. It was dark - only three lamps and one window which cannot be opened (without compromising your privacy). No carpets in the hall way.

    I think one of the front desk managers were not as nice as he was supposed to be. The baggage handlers were really friendly as well as the other front desk managers. They were always very polite and helpful.

    Reasonably priced for a great location! Hotel staff were helpful and kindly catered to our requests. The room came with free wifi and overall WJ is perfect for a short stay!

    Wifi internet was not very stable and there was a draught from the window in our room.

    My husband and I found the WJ Hotel to be an excellent value experience. We stayed in a premium room and found it to be very comfortable, though slightly short on storage space for a five day stay. Excellent shower room with very spacious shower, bed huge and very comfortable, and room service superb. Location for enjoying theatre and other Midtown/shopping experiences was ideal, and we specially enjoyed being so close to Central Park. Staff were friendly, welcoming and very helpful. The only minor downside was street noise at the weekend, but it was Manhatten!

    No complaints but bed could have been slightly smaller and wardrobe bigger.

    The location was great. Close enough to walk to either an attraction or easy transport links. The staff were friendly. The room was clean, well maintained and the bath was fantastic after a long day walking around.

    The only recommendation would be drink facilities in the room would have made an excellent edition. However coffee is sold from many places less than a 1 block radius!

    Room was very clean & price was very appealing

    Some crazy and loud noice in the room due to the boiler start up at different moments during the day but also during the night. When the boiler got on, there is a crazy noise during 2 minutes. I was with me head against the roof when it happened at 2h30 am. Room nr 284 ....Already a bit noisy as low floor and at the street side. At my check in, there was no option to change anymore. Room are also extremely small ....and I was happily alone

    Location 50th and 8th ave is very central

    Very basic old hotel in Manhattan. Tiny old elevator, bad smell on landing which needs renovation. Small twin room. Way overpriced- even for NY.
