Did not get to stay, it seemed that Orbitz sent the reservation cancelation to my email less then 24hours of my arrival so after I got there I was informed that the hotel had been taken over by the city, but they did give me 2 hotel options to stay at and they took care of everything this is the second time this has happened, the last time it was a Hotel in Tampa

The Washington Jefferson Hoyel was closed for renovations when we arrived and we could not stay there. We were directed to go to the Hotel Edison instead.

We didn’t stay at this hotel. Flew into the city late at night only to be told “the government is taking over the hotel we have transferred you to a new hotel you can’t stay here” 45 MINUTES AWAY from the current area no email notification before hand or a call during the daytime hours. While seeing other hotel guest enter and exit the building who were clearly staying in the hotel. Hotel staff did not even know how far the “new” hotel was I had to look it up myself. We were offered up to a $50 cab ride to the new hotel and 2 breakfast vouchers… what a laughable compensation. Hotel staff were not knowledgeable and not helpful. We got a refund and found a better hotel. I wouldn’t waste your time at this place. Stay somewhere else! Also, this hotel staff lied to our travel agency saying we took the transfer hotel when we did not. So for a lack of a better term “scammed” us as we wouldn’t been changed for this stay when we did not stay at this hotel. Therefore, had to fight for our refund from this unworthy hotel. Don’t waste your time and money on this place.

I arrived for check in and was told that I would not be in that hotel and they gave a letter and the adress to the other hotel. Not even providing transportation in the rain

Reservation moved to another hotel
Upon arrival I was told I was being moved to a different (sister) hotel because the city had taken this hotel over. I don't like not having a choice of where I stay. AND, this put me behind on my schedule causing me to miss out on an event I had planned and paid for. A notification BEFORE arriving would have been better. Waste of my time.

The room is very basic and very small. No desk for the computer, barely enough room to open a suitcase. I was expecting something a little better for $400 on a Wednesday.

Unfortunately, they had to move us to their sister hotel, The Edison, because the City of New York took over the hotel. The staff made the shift as painless as possible - but we would have preferred to stay at the WJ.
