Quaint boutique hotel on a quiet residential street. I found this hotel by accident when I saw an advertisement on Facebook. I had reservations at another hotel but this was closer to where I needed to be an less expensive. I read a number of reviews here and decided to take the chance. I was so happy I canceled the other reservation. I was greeted warmly by Umar at the front desk and although I arrived at 11am he checked me in to my room which, I was surprised to find, was a small suite with a sitting room and a separate bedroom. The rooms were spotless and there were enough outlets in both rooms to recharge all of your gadgets. W 51st Street is a residential street, therefore, it was very quiet. Being on W 51st street, the hotel is within walking distance to Times Square and Lincoln Center. Plus, you are 1/2 block from 9th Ave, also known as restaurant row=. There is just about any kind of ethnic food that you want on 9th. I ate at a Turkish and a Colombian restaurant ( both are being reviewed here as well). I recommend this hotel and I have already made a reservation to return in March.

"A Very Nice and Quaint Place To Stay"

I loved the hotel and I loved the staff. Everyone so was nice and so helpful and they recognized me upon entering and exiting the hotel. Josh and the front desk helped with everything that I had questions with and reception I think her name was Dobanel was extremely helpful to me while checking out. Now the hotel rooms were very small but I really didn't mind because I was staying there by myself. If there would have been two we would have needed a bigger room and bigger bed. I thought the hotel was very clean and I am someone who brings their own sheets and towels when I come to a hotel to stay. The hotel is very centrally located. Time Square, Central Park, The Broadway theatre district were all a 5 - 10 minute walk. I do not know about any subway information because I get really lost and that just seem like a disaster waiting to happen. Another plus there are so many places to eat right near the hotel less that 2 minutes walking distance and I was able to have 2 separate places deliver free of charge to my hotel room. I really loved my stay and when I go back I plan to stay again. The only problem that I had is that my hotel room keys would just stop working everyday. So I would go up to my hotel and I would have to go back down and have them redo my room key. So that was a little annoying. Other than that it was an amazing trip.

We have stayed at the Washington Jefferson hotel many times while visiting NYC. My aunts lived in this hotel 60+ years before it was converted to a hotel venue. Bobby, the concierge/desk clerk remembers them with fondness. Bobby is very professional and personable. Always immaculately dressed! He knows the city well and is very helpful with questions regarding activities, restaurants and points of interest. Rafi is a very friendly and helpful doorman. He performs his duties with pride and dignity. The rooms are comfortable and inviting. There is coffee and tea offered every morning.

"great location for Times Square"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed December 21, 2018 NEW
this hotel was nice, not a lot of services so if you're looking for a restaurant, bar, etc. this is not the place for you. I had one of their single rooms and it was perfect as I was traveling with my parents and didn't want to share their room - clean room, reasonably comfortable bed. the best thing was the location - close to Times Square but far enough away that you don't have the noise - one block off 9th Ave, which is loaded with great restaurants
