Great Location

Location was right off of Times Square - possibly 4 blocks away. Pizza Place 1 1/2 blocks away, the teenagers loved that. My only issue was we had to ask the office for a bucket of ice, it would have been nice to have self-serve ice.

Not like a 3-star hotel

Room is small. I can hardly open my large suitcase. No free Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi costs 11.99 dollar for each device and it is slow. The toilet is clogged sometimes. Tub is leaking. Air conditioner is annoyingly loud.

Great Location!

This hotel was great overall. The location was ideal. It was close to Central Park, Times Square etc. It certainly isn't a luxury hotel with all the bells and whistles but it provides all the basic needs in a comfortable, welcoming and clean environment. I would definitely stay there again.

daughter's graduation

The hotel is in a good location but dissapointed in the quality and size of the room. The air con was very loud but not particularly effective. Also not happy at having to pay for internet access in a hotel in New York.

Fun trip!

Wellington Hotel is in a great area. It is near Central Park, shopping, Times Square, the subway and more! The rooms are often small but clean. The section of the hotel that has been updated is best. I've stayed here twice. The first time we stayed here we had a room with a great corner view of Times Square and air but it was very small. Fortunately, we were only in the room to sleep. The second visit, we had a very large room in the old part of the hotel and it was so hot we had to open a window and could not sleep due to outside noise. The hotel staff tried to be helpful and sent some one up to adjust the temperature but it did not work. The second night they moved us to a newly renovated room with an air conditioner and it was great. I only recommend this hotel if you want to be near Times Square and the subway for a great price and don't mind the risk of getting room with out air conditioning.

the worst experience

First of all, there are very loud noise coming from outside. It may come from heating machine host. The noise echo between very closed two building and just like aircraft roar. The next door is being renovated. We have a sleepless night and have to call for change a room at early morning. The staff told us no room available. We have to walk out at 8 am even paid whole night fee! We have to came back to check room status two times as time schedule that they told us. They insisted on no noise in the room. If you have chance to live in X04 room, you will know how loud the noise. My friend live in this hotel too. The room's noise is normal. And the staffs are so unfriendly, especially the manager. He is so rude when we came back to check the available room at noon. The worst experience we have! We will never come back!
