Last week, I had the fantastic opportunity to attend the BlogHer’12 conference in New York City. While I was in the big city, my home away from home was the Hotel Wolcott. It’s the perfect place for to relax, recharge and get a great night’s sleep!
Located just three blocks from the Empire State Building, the hotel’s fantastic location puts you in a great spot for seeing the sights including Madison Square Garden and Rockefeller Center. In fact, I walked a great amount while in the city (and have the blisters to prove it), it’s in a great spot located on West 31st Street between 5th avenue and Avenue of the Americas.
I hadn’t been to New York City since 2002, so I had a lot of questions – I was happy to see an on-site concierge and a very welcoming front desk staff. Everyone was very friendly, attentive and helpful with answering my questions.
And how could I forget the FREE breakfast! Muffins, pastries, coffee and juice – I bet you won’t find a free breakfast many places in New York City! And while there’s no room service available, the on-site gift shop was filled with great snacks and drinks… I treated myself each afternoon when I returned to the hotel.
My Junior Suite was extremely spacious with two rooms - a bed and television in each room, a generous sized bathroom, an in-room safe and a desk. Internet and in-room movies/games were available for an additional fee. Since I was unfamiliar with much of the city, I loved the selection of in-room magazines and travel guides too. So helpful.
The rooms at the Hotel Wolcott are truly great for families or groups – some rooms even have a view of the Empire State Building! Whether you’re in need of a one, two or three beds in a room – this property can take care of your needs. I had the opportunity to tour a triple bedroom while staying at the hotel. With three single beds – the Hotel Wolcott strongly believes that no one should have to share a bed, if they don’t want to. The triple rooms would be perfect for families with kids in need of a little more space.
With affordable rates and a fantastic location – the Hotel Wolcott offers guests a hotel that’s not cookie-cutter – it has true personality, charm and somewhere I hope to visit again soon!
Next week, I’ll tell you all about the Hotel Wolcott’s rich history… you don’t want to miss it!
