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.

Not bad for the value

Once I got over the fact that the cleaning lady was watching tv with her feet up in my room upon checking in, and the sheets hadn't been changed, the hotel wasn't that bad. This is a 3 star hotel, so it shouldn't be held to the standards of higher ranked ones, and it wouldn't be able to. The hotel is pretty old, and the rooms are small. They could also stand to shampoo the carpet. However, for the deals that you may be able to get [...]you can't beat the location. It's very convenient to many major touristy locations, and there are about three subway stops within very close walking distance making it very accessible.Bottom line, if you're on a budget and not looking for The Ritz...this isn't a bad option.

Very nice

The hotel was very nice, clean and the staff helpful. Even with the heat turned off; heat still came out of the unit. I had the windows open and that didn't really help; the second night I had to have them come in and physically shut off the unit itself.

Great Location for the Price!

I live on the UES, but I stayed at the hotel because the heat in my apartment wasn't working. The hotel is great for the price because of the proximity to Times Square, Central Park, and 5th/Madison Avenue. However, I didn't appreciate being told that my room was still not ready after 3pm. The lady at the front desk finally gave me the key and said to check to see if the room was ready. She wasn't sure if the room was ready. Don't they communicate with the housekeeping staff?
