    too expensive for what it was...

    After paying more than $300 per night (without breakfast) we were expecting a bigger, cleaner and newer room.

  • Older travelers

    Location, Clean

    I saw reviews that said small rooms, but I had no idea how small

  • Couple
    8.8

    Great and friendly staff, very clean and the bed were very comfy. Situated very well as close to restaurants, shops, Cental Park and metro station.

    Maybe a bit noisy

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    Great location for most if not all attractions room clean & tidy and liked the spa bath. Staff curtious and willing to help.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    I liked the fact that it was so close to Times Square. There were plenty of cheap eating places (away from Times Square!) and the staff were friendly and helpful.

    The rooms are very small and the street noise is very loud.

  • Family with children
    4.6

    Hotel staff were pleasanr and very helpful

    Twin bedroom (2 singles) was very, very small with nowhere even to place a suitcase to unpack, not even on the floor. Very poor cream decor, rather like a boarding house for school children. Bathroom tiny, difficult to get out of the shower by squeezing against the washbasin which was badly cracked. Awful cheap and old carpet. When we complained, we were offered a larger room for $20 more per night but as it was only one foot larger, there was not much point. A better sized room was $60 a night more.

  • Family with children

    The linens and bath/shower were heavenly. It was obvious money had been put into the furnishings of the room. The location was great. The staff was good - especially London, our bellman.

    One room was very small.

  • Group of friends
    6.6

    Location was excellent. It was small but comfortable.

    It could have been cleaner. There were stains on the bed frame that weren't cleaned up properly.

  • Couple

    We were very pleased with our visit to the Washington Jefferson for our first visit to NYC. We arrived earlier than the check in time and were informed that our room was ready for us and we were given an upgrade as well. That was great service!! Staff were always very pleasant and would greet us as we would come and go. On our last day, they held our bags for us after check out no charge until it was time to go to the airport. Our room was very clean and very quiet. Would definetly recommend. Thank you for making our stay a very pleasant one!!

  • Group of friends

    Beautiful great room, clean, confortable,right temperature, friendly people. Just great and close to everything it was perfect.

    I love this hotel very much was cozy comfortable I'm going back. Also loved the smiles in the front desck. Thank you for everything

  • Couple
    4.2

    It was well located for the theatre district, Central Park, various museums and attractions, and the metro to get to other parts of Manhattan. This was the only positive.

    The first room we were shown was horrendous - it was the size of a shoe- box, but the worst thing was the noise - it looked out over a very busy street, and the air-con had been installed in the window, with a thin plastic surround, meaning no sound-proofing at all. We complained and were moved to a bigger room (for which they tried to charge an extra $40 per night but we refused and threatened to cancel, so they backed down). This was quieter, but looked onto an ugly service courtyard, and we still had problems with the air-con itself being incredibly noisy due to poor fitting. Also the shower was a pathetic dribble, and there were no drawers to put clothes in. Hugely expensive for a horrible place.

  • Group of friends
    8.2

    The hotel is very close to the city attractions and shopping centers like Times Square; Empire State Building, major broadway shows like Gershwin Theatre (Wicked), Radio City (Zarkana by Cirque du Soleil), etc., 5th Avenue. Friendly staff, free wi-fi, cleanness, tranquility of the place of the hotel are the other things that I like.

    No minibar, fridge and no tea/coffee making facility in the room. The room and bathroom is a bit small. Breakfast should be added to the price. The hotel charge 200 dolar deposit without informing...

  • Couple
    7.8

    Quiet rooms at acceptable rates only a few minutes away from the pulsating vain of NYC.

  • Single
    7.8

    Clean room - quiet room - had all the necessities

    Hallways were small, rooms were small - very European in terms of size. The bathroom, specifically the shower was small.

  • Couple
    8.2

    Excellent location, friendly staff and clean facilities. Room a bit small but who wants to be in there room when your in NEW YORK CITY!!! would recommend and would definetly go back. Thank you Washington Jefferson for a happy and plesant stay.
