Most people think of lower Midtown as a district of lofts and offices, without much character. But hidden between the bland commercial buildings is a sprinkling of little gems, recalling the days when this section was at the peak of elegance and sophistication. Of these, the most illustrious is surely The Hotel Wolcott.
A Historic Hotel in New York City
Opened in March 1904, the Hotel Wolcott is the largest and most exuberant of Midtown’s commercial structures. Both audacious and sophisticated, the hotel was designed by a prize-winning but idiosyncratic architect for a mysterious developer with a checkered career.
Whether you’re traveling for business, a family vacation, a romantic getaway, or a friend’s weekend, the historic Wolcott Hotel has room for everyone at some of the best rates in Manhattan. For families, they offer Junior Suites with two rooms and space for three. Business travelers will appreciate our Standard Queen Rooms with one queen bed or our Junior Suites, which have one queen bed and plenty of space to relax or hold meetings in the parlor room. And friends groups will love our Standard Twin and Triple Rooms, which feature two or three twin beds, respectively. Smoking and non-smoking rooms are available.

“The lobby alone is worth the trip. It’s ornate, over-the-top Boardwalk Empire luxury. The ceiling, colors and lighting are definitely from a lost New York.”
