Radiating history from its walls, the Wellington Hotel New York?built in 1901?stands apart from the fast pace of modern city life surrounding it. The plush lobby is decked out in rich tones and intricate murals, while focal chandeliers give the interiors a classical ambience.  If you are here on business, the hotel?s central location and 24-hour business center will cater to your every need. Midtown Manhattan is full of excellent restaurants; gourmets would do well to try the Wellington?s delicious plates of Greek mezze at the Molyvos restaurant, or the Park Cafe's informal all-day dining options.
Key facts
  • 700 guestrooms

Neighborhood

With Central Park just three blocks away, the Wellington places guests close to a welcoming green space featuring a wide range of activities, including roller skating and boating, on the calm waters of the lake. Every type of cuisine is represented in this neighborhood, with area favorites ranging from Ray’s Pizza on Broadway to The Russian Tea Room on West 57th Street, where visitors can choose from more than 40 types of vodka, or book the facility for a classical afternoon tea. Retail therapy can be found inside the designer stores of 5th Avenue or the dependable establishment of Bloomingdale’s, which combines major lines and fresh labels.

Hints and tips
Some of the rooms have kitchenettes-perfect for hot snacks and downtime after a long day. If you're visiting in November or December, stock up on gifts and Christmas decorations at the Wellington's Christmas Cottage store.

Great girls getaway

This was our second stay at the Wellington and it still exceeded our expectations. Once again we were upgraded to a suite; this time the PH. Rooms were very clean and inviting and the beds were super comfortable. We visited many museums, took in two Broadway shows , a movie and much more. Hotel location was perfect.

Great staff

The hotel is in a great location. Loved my view and the bed. The only thing I didn't like was the bathroom. It was tiny and there was some disgusting looking stuff on the wall. I also couldn't adjust the shower head

Great location

Keeping in mind you are visiting the big apple, my overall satisfaction and experience was good. The room was very small with no refrigerator or microwave and not even a coffee machine. My air-conditioner was struggling to maintain but I was not in my room much, so I did not even mention to the staff until I was checking out. Compared to other hotels in the area the value was very good. I would definitely go back to this hotel as it suited my needs.

Great location. Handy to everything, hop on HOP OFF bus, harbor tour, entertainment district, central park and just North of TIMES SQ> This is an older property but very well kept. Very clean and great staff. A MUST IF YOU STAY HERE>> Judd the DOORMAN is a ex SURVIVOR contestant. Be sure to say hello if you watch the survivor series. He is a really great guy. Just ask the doorman for JUDD!

Great Value for Location

The location is what brought us to this hotel. If you are looking for luxury, this is not the place for you. The rooms are very small but when you're in NYC you shouldn't be spending time in your room anyway. The walk to Times Square was about 10 mins. There are plenty of restaurants and bars within a few blocks. You can get to Anything in minutes. The staff was great! The bellman was a former Survivor contestant. Overall a great experience for what we needed it for.

If you are Planning to be there longer than 5 days, look into the NYC Pass. It covers most attractions plus the tour bus for a flat fee.
