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.

Room to Book:

Request a room at the back of the property to avoid traffic noise from West 51st Street.

Insider Tip:

If you’re looking for a breakfast restaurant within walking distance, stop by Ellen’s Stardust Café and enjoy homemade breakfast burritos while the staff performs show tunes and oldies.
