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
  • Two restaurants: Molyvos and Park Cafe

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.

Not so great

Good thing is very good location...Close to timesquare and all famous attractions as they mentioned in the hotel site. Bad part is... We had given a old remodelled family room, which had 2 beds in 2 different room... Room is so small. Everything is pay channel so you cannot watch TV..There are 3 free videos that you can watch but it is not entertainining. Also they were charging for the internet.

Get what you pay for

Wellington is in a great location, but the rooms are not very good at all. The floor in my room was very uneven with sags that made you wonder if it was safe. There was no provision for internet, and the business center charged guests to use the computer. After waiting about 10 minutes for a bellman, I carried my own bags to my room. other than the location, this is a terrible choice for a hotel

Adequate

I picked this hotel because it was the only one available in Manhattan for less than $300 at the last minute. It was adequate, nothing special. Clean enough and the bed was comfortable although they only had twins left. The room was small, furnishings need updating (especially the lights), blind did not fully close; A/C worked but a bit noisy. Did not have time to test the wireless or TV. At least you have a choice of three diners just steps away!

Eh, reaally cruddy.

The lobby looked nice. The people working there were all nice too. Unfortunately, the elevator was tiny and never showed up if you called it from your floor. The "suite" I had was definitely not a suite. It was two tiny bedrooms with old furniture connected by a small hallway and cruddy bathroom. This hotel was not very enjoyable at all.

rooms to small, needs remodeling

for the amount of clients that are daily in the hotel, they should remodalate floor by floor, is a pity that the owners or actionist will prefer to gain money at the expense of clietns taht stay in the hotel with such a small and old rooms. they do not have visión, if they invest for sure the pelaple taht have gone as me will go back again. If they don´t I won´t go, even if the location is great, I felt as I was paying much mure of what is was for. Sheets were wrinkle, just one pillow, rooms with single beds, tiny but tiny bathrrooms, and I´m small. It could be a better hotel, and even charge more if the wanted if they invest in the basic " having a nice and confortable rooms is essential in a trip"

Needs that special something

I was not impressed with the look and feel of the facility. Room very outdated with uncomfortable bed. I did not like the facility and checked out.

Business Trip w/some play time

Hotel was just Okay. Little problems spoiled an otherwise better than average stay. Front desk staff was wonderful and very helpful. Room problems throughout hotel: Shower curtains too short causing much water on bathroom floor. Lack of ability to control heat was horrible and forced us to leave window open. TV was small and old. Lack of a general business room w/computer for internet access to use to print out airplane boarding passes at no charge was unacceptable. This hotel is not really "business traveler" friendly.
