Wonderful Stay , staff great , clean , warm . Definitely coming back 🙂”

Lovely welcoming hotel , great location . Pleasantly quiet for the busy location of time square around the corner . Staff were very attentive and helpful . Slightly dated decor but we loved the rooms . Warm , cosy , clean , fresh towels , clean shower curtain . We needed a fan , within seconds one was delivered to our room . Fantastic service . Life saver mints in bowls at reception , great touch ! Pros were minimal , however , The shower head kept falling out the wall , they did send someone to fix it ,temporarily, But maybe this needs to be looked in to a bit more . Breakfast was good but very expensive , especially for a family of 4 . Overall we were sad to leave , we throughly enjoyed our visit to NY and The Watson Hotel made it even greater , receptionist who greeted us was so helpful in letting us choose room vacancy , super . Thank you , we will be coming back . We also had a great view from our room , amazing 😃

Amazing location, Amazing value probably the best in Manhattan”

I have stayed at this property many times over the past several years. And I can comfortably say that if you are looking for a place to stay which is priced fairly (accordingly to NYC standards) and require easy moving around Manhattan you will not find better. Blocks away from Times Square...blocks away from Javitz Center which hosts most of the Commercial Trade Shows in NYC and convenient transportation flexibility from cabs to subway or if you are driving with your own car. I will continue to stay at The Watson for years to come.

Best Bang for Your Buck!!!!”

There were 0 con’s for the price of the room to be $100 a night, all said and done; the hotel being located so close to Penn Station as well as Time Square also makes this hotel perfect for anyone/couple looking for a nice place to stay, with very nice and accommodating staff, and more than acceptably clean and appropriately sized rooms (I’m a 6’4 man), so the size of all of the space in the room is always key & there was more than an acceptable amount of space!!!

Excellent value for money given the location!”

Located in Hell's Kitchen (midtown West) but only 5-10 mins walk from the centre/Times Square etc. Only a few minutes walk to the nearest subway station (59 St Columbus) which takes you pretty much everywhere you need to go in the city! Really spacious and tidy rooms with great views of the city. This is my second stay here and would definitely come back again!

I frequent NYC 4-5 times per year. The Watson brings you to close proximity of all the excitment without being entangled in the craziness. Because I drive into Manhattan it offers very easy in and out to all the other borough's, Jersey and on . Love the place. Sad when they are sold out. Highly recommend whether you're travelling with family or for business.

Fantastic”

The Watson Hotel were life savers after our air bnb cancelled 8 days before we were scheduled to arrive to stay in NYC for 28 nights. 20 minute walk to Times Square and Broadway theatres. A few blocks from Central Park. Close to subway stations and the Roosevelt deli on the corner was delicious. Rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. Fridges on request which was great for our month long stay. Nice area felt completely safe the whole time even walking home late at night. Staff were great nice and helpful. Would stay again.

Loved our stay here!”

The hotel is clean and has great amenities. Staff were very friendly and helpful, could not fault them! The rooms were large and beds were comfy. Only room negative was the heater fan was a little noisy. If you want to stay a little away from the hustle and bustle of Times Square then this is a fabulous place to choose. It’s close to a subway station plus lots of shops and Times Square is about a 15-20min walk away. It’s also right near Central Park. We would definitely return for another stay at The Watson and wouldn’t hesitate in recommending it!

Great hotel for visiting NYC”

This hotel is in a great location, close enough to the attractions and sights you want to see yet sufficiently far enough away from them to be quite and peaceful. Hotel looks a little tired in its decor but is otherwise clean, tidy and comfortable. During my stay however I did get a few insect bites during the night so a bit of fumigation would have been of benefit. Otherwise highly recommended hotel for value for money stay.

A Gem in Hell's Kitchen”

Reviews were mixed, but passable for a really good deal on this hotel. However, our experiences staying here for over a week were consistently very good to excellent. We got breakfast as part of our package, which requires daily voucher cards from hotel management. The restaurant staff were friendly and helpful, despite the fact that we were using vouchers (of course, we tipped well, but they didn't know we would until after waiting on us, so kudos to them!). So food and service were great. The hotel itself looks a little worn/dated, but it has solid "bones." Everything was clean and functional. Housekeeping was very nice and responsive, but not too intrusive, so great. There are many stores and restaurants within about a 4 block radius and plenty of mass transit access nearby. All told, The Watson Hotel was a great deal and I'd happily stay here again and recommend it, if the price is right.
