Great Reunion with Friends

I stayed here while in NYC for a reunion with some friends, and we all enjoyed it very much! The location was central to many of our stops in the city--very close to both Central Park and Times Square attractions. There are also good subway stops on both corners of this block. The interior was nice--old, but well-preserved. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The only things that disappointed me were the view from my window (no lights, just power units) and the rates for in-room wifi.

Hidden charges, they rip you off!

Beware! Dont let these guys charge you with movies you never watched. Make note of the time you leave and return to the hotel, that's how you can prove you weren't in the room. I had them review the room log and left them with no choice but to drop the charges. Location is good, but service here service makes your trip insufferable. There was a lady next to me almkst crying and swearing she never watched any movies..they tried the same with me.

It gets the job done

If you are just looking for a bed to crash in when you visit the City, this hotel will do the trick. The shower pressure was like a scene from Seinfeld, but room was clean and staff was very pleasant.

Amazing

We have been to NYC many times and this is our second time staying at the Wellington due to it's location and value. I enjoy running in the mornings so this is close enough to Central Park to easily do that. In addition, it is within walking distance to Time Square and other major attractions. I would highly recommend.

Wellington's Location Is Excellent

It's kind of a funky hotel with a mediocre coffee shop in a prime location in NYC. The rates are more than reasonable given the location. It's perfect if you spend time in the theater district or in and around Central Park. There are lots of Irish Pubs and good restaurants in the vicinity.

New York 2014

Good location & clean. Rooms were small, no place to move, very crowded. Not that we spent a lot of time in the room but you need to be able to move around and places to put your things, especially when you have two woman traveling together! Our air conditioner went out in our room & they immediately got it changed out. Asked for a mini fridge & coffee pot for our room. Did not have in room coffee, which we didn't like. Just ended up going down to the coffee shop, in the hotel, every morning for coffee. Two large coffees were $5.50. All in all pretty good hotel but I would go back to The Warwick. Just for the room size & amenities.
