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.

Nice place to stay with family

Great location! However, I want a kettle to cook the water for my younger sister, but no one help me after I talked with the housekeeper. This is the only problem I had there.

An ordinary room, nothing special

Stayed one night, the room I was assigned was on the tenth floor, I was not very impressed with it at all. The view was of adjacent high rises, but I suspect that's the case for most hotels in Manhattan. The bed seemed short..It was wide, but short, which makes me think it wasn't orientated properly. The bathroom was 'meh' at best. Not dirty, but not very clean, either. Felt like a single's apartment. No free wifi (have to pay hourly or daily rates), the TV was kind of old. That's the general impression I got: kind of old. Bottom line: a good place to stay for a night, but don't expect anything special.

Location to Die For!

The location of this hotel is what makes it the place to stay. The staff is very helpful in giving directions and making recommendations. Subway stops very close make it easy access to the rest of the city. There is no air conditioning/ heater unit in the room so it got pretty warm in the room, even though it was the middle of December. So, that made our sleeping arrangements rather uncomfortable. Overall we would stay here again but be prepared for summer sleeping weather instead.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

The hotel is central to 5th Avenue, Rockafella Center, Carngie Hall, Central Park and Times Square. Familiarize yourself with area before the trip (we used google maps) and walk to these places. Takes a little longer than the subway but you get to see so much more of NYC this way and its cheaper than takiing the subway where you have to reload your metro card more frequently.
