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.

2nd stay at this property

This was our second stay at the Wellington. The location and price. The rooms and bathrooms are small but given the age of the hotel it is understandable. I would consider The Wellington again for my future trips to NYC.

In the Middle of Everything

The Wellington has very friendly and helpful staff from the reception desk, doorman, housekeeping to concierge services. The hotel rooms are average, and that's what you need when staying in New York. Who wants to stay in the room when there is so much to see and do? The showers are hot, the bed is good and you can get ice from the guys in the lobby. We liked being close to the theater district, Central Park, the subway, and the museums.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Eat in "The Devil's Living Space" Kitchen area on 9th Avenue. You can find ANY kind of food you want and much of it is very reasonably priced. (had to be cryptic because website won't let me use a form of Hades even though it's the name of the area)

Night stay

I was in New York for the day for a concert and decided to stay here. It was nothing "spectacular," but it was cozy and clean. I'd definitely recommend for a cheaper night stay.

mother/daughter time

The location of this hotel to all things Broadway was fantastic! Downtown 5 minute walk and you are in Times Square - uptown 3 minute walk and you are in Central Park. Friendly staff willing to answer any question. Subway entrance outside hotel doorway. Couldn't have asked for a better hotel for the price.

wonderful family time

Staff was friendly, helpful, and accommodating. We were upgraded to a suite and the room was large clean and recently remodeled. We were close to time square, central park, radio city music hall, and had easy access to the subway along with many food choices. Would definitely stay there again.
