Lovely hotel. Brilliant location (5mins walk to Times Square) and friendly staff. Small room but very clean and plenty of towels & toiletries. On Corridors a bit dated but overall a decent hotel situated in Hells Kitchen with good little pub next door. Would stay again

"Shocked not in a good way"

I booked this hotel for my boyfriends birthday, I spent days online going back and forth between different hotels to choose the perfect one. Online the pictures look completely different. The room was so small. The room was clean. But the hotel, stair way, elevator was disgusting & old. The staff was mostly rude. And it smelled horrible when we walked in. The sizes of the rooms really need to be mentioned. I nearly cried when I walked in. I would not recommend this.

My previous go-to budget hotel has gone a bit upscale/pricey, so I was delighted to find the WJ! To set expectations, this is a typical smaller NYC hotel - an older building which has been renovated. My room had plenty of space to move around, but if you are looking for spacious luxury (with a price tag to match) this is ot the hotel for you. If you just want a comfortable, clean room to use as a home base between your NYC adventures, check in with the friendly staff of the WJ! The location is super - on and near streets with lots of eateries and bars, walking distance to Broadway theaters, Central Park and mid-town attractions. I foud my room via a hotel disounting site and considered the price an absolute bargain for the Times Square area. The staff was able to accommodate my early check-in. My standard room could technically accommodate two, but might be better for the solo traveler. The room had a full-size bed (firm mattress, down pillows), desk and chair, wall-mounted TV; free WiFi. The alarm clock had a USB port and iPad dock - that was a nice touch. :) The bathroom was fine for one, and the shower stall (no tub) was actually quite spacious. All the typical toiletries and a hair dryer available. The towels were soft and fluffy! I only stayed one overnight and did not check out the workout room or other listed amenities. A couple things to note - there only seemed to be one elevator; I walked up and down to my 3d floor room, so don't know if there are any issues with the elevator operation. The central HVAC was a work in progress when I was there. The back-up window AC unit just managed to get the job done, albeit noisily. However - that did help mask some of the street noise audible from my street-facing room. The convenience of restaurants and bars can also provide quite a bit of night music in the city that never sleeps, so you might want to prepare for that if you are a light sleeper. Or request a room that doesn't face the street! On most of my NYC trips, my hotel is just a place to rest and recharge, and the WJ fits nicely. I think this is my new go-to!

"Great hotel close to Columbus Circle"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed July 11, 2017 NEW
This hotel is more of a boutique style hotel. We picked it because it was close to Columbus Circle and would be traveling back and forth from that location each day. We also chose this hotel because it offered queen beds which is rare in NY and it was close to the subway. The staff was extremely friendly, courteous, and helpful. The only downside was the bed was a little hard and they really need to have more USB/charging stations in the room; there was only one in the room we stayed in. The room was very quiet though at night and the housekeeping staff was great! I would recommend this hotel and consider staying here again on my next trip to NY.

"Passerby Hotel"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed July 10, 2017 NEW
What we call it " Passerby " is an everyday hotel for busy guest or person who intended just to sleep or just to put your luggage. I like the front desk associates they really good on welcoming when you enter the door especially Nady. But the best one I like the bathroom towel very comfy it makes you feel sleepy. Quite hear some noise but is common you are in the heart of Times Square.
