Washington Jefferson Hotel

Map
318 W. 51st St., New York, NY 10019

Instantly recognizable by the large red “WJ” marking the front entrance, the six-story Washington Jefferson Hotel is located within a 10-minute walk of Times Square, Central Park, and the theatre district. The lobby is furnished with a marble floor, warm wood paneling, and a huge half-dome light fixture, while the 135 guestrooms are more basic—small and sparse, but comfortable and relatively affordable. Designed in a clean gray and white palette, all rooms have platform beds, padded headboards, and limestone-and-slate bathrooms. The on-site Shimizu restaurant serves sushi and Japanese cocktails, and nearby Triomphe is known for its seasonal French-American fare.
