For the price, the hotel was subpar. The rooms are rather small but we did receive an upgrade which was very nice. I would recommend family visiting to stay in this hotel for easy access to all the hot spots of NYC.

I have zero complaints! GREAT LOCATION!

This is a no-frills hotel that has all you need located in the heart of NYC. Walk out the front door...Times Square to the left...Central Park to the right...perfect. Stayed solo - king size bed - very comfortable - very clean - was cleaned quickly & thoroughly everyday. Staff very friendly & helpful. This hotel is good & has the potential to be great with some upgrades (lobby & elevators). Highly recommend the simple 3 star Wellington Hotel. Philip - St Petersburg, FL

Great location, nice people, really big safety deposit boxes at the front desk so we could store our laptops and tablets while we were out and about. I'd definitely stay there again.

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.

Below average for the price

Room we had,.there was not a hook on the back of the door to put our robe or anything. The room was small and had hard time getting round the bed to get to the other side of the room. Maid did not clean our room, we had to request her to come up that evening to clean. We had been gone all day. The price was too high for the room. We had to put a stool up to the door to feel safe. The ladies at the front desk were very helpful and kind. It was the room that we had a problem with and service with the maid..
