Our Manhattan Hotel Reviews


Excellent service.

The door man not only opened the door for us every night that week, but took our bags after we checked out so we can go out to eat brunch. He was always nice and always asked us how our day was going. The front desk team was super friendly and helped us print out our boarding passes. They called a taxi service to bring us to the airport, and we literally felt like we were the only guests there. Excellent service.



Reviewed yesterday NEW Excellent location!! Will come again for sure. Highly recommend this hotel. Walking distance to everything cool. Worth every penny. Stay here next visit. Theatres right around the corner. Stay here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Business Travel
  Great location with easy walking access to shopping on 5th and 6th and shows.
  The Concierge and Front Desk are most helpful.
  Several great restaurants across the street make it easy to have a quiet dinner after a day of work.


Excellent Little Hotel with Fantastic Location

There's a lot to like about this little hotel. Perhaps the biggest highlight is its location. The WJ is half a block from the 50th st. C/E subway station and about a block and a half from a station with service from the 1 train. This gives you access to the majority of the city without even making a transfer. Within walking distance, you'll find Times Square, Broadway, the Theater District, and so much more. And even all of this nearby, the hotel is situated on a fairly quiet street (in Manhattan terms) meaning that it's fairly easy to sleep without all of the city noise.

The staff in the hotel is very accommodating. During my 5-night stay, I got to know a housekeeper and one of the doormen quite well. Everyone I encountered was friendly and helpful.

Perhaps the best thing about the WJ is the fact that it has character. If you look around, you'll probably notice old architectural details that have survived for many years (I loved the staircase). I'm not sure why, but I grew more fond of this property every day that I stayed there.

The staff and the charming building really won me over.

"Just wanted you to know this was a perfect guest experience."

“Just wanted you to know this was a perfect guest experience. As a solo traveler needing to stay somewhere central, I loved your hotel. Staff was super friendly and happy and funny……. Can't think of anything bad to say whatsoever. And I'm a picky customer most of the time. Well done!!!!...........The bellman came literally RUNNING out to greet me when my cab pulled up. Couldn't do better than that!”

"Thank you so much for your hospitality."

Thank you so much for your hospitality.

“I just returned from New York and wanted to thank you so much for your hospitality at The Washington Jefferson last Friday and Saturday nights.  Your hotel is fantastic and the staff couldn’t have been more friendly.  My friend and I had a wonderful time and really appreciated the bottle of wine you left for us.  It was delicious.

I will definitely recommend the Washington Jefferson to clients and colleagues.  Thank you again.”

Best regards,

“Just what we needed, great location.”

My wife and I have visited New York twice now and we have stayed in the Washington Jefferson both times. It's great value for a place in the centre or New York. You are literally 5 minutes away from Times Square.

“Great location”

The hotel was in a perfect location. Easy walk to just about everything and located where I felt safe doing so. The staff was wonderful.

What a lovely place! Newly renovated, it is just wonderful! Clean, comfortable, and the staff is excellent. We were there on Memorial Weekend/Fleet Week. The hotel is very, very close to Times Square and walking distance of everything. The staff is professional, efficient and very welcoming.

I wanted to take time to thank you for making my daughter's stay at your hotel enjoyable.

I wanted to take time to thank you for making my daughter's stay at your hotel enjoyable.  I talked to her today and she said she really liked the room.  She went there to interview and this is her first visit to New York.  What a wonderful experience she is having. 

So thanks!

NOTE:  I look forward to visiting Times Square as well and it would be my first experience.
