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.

Great location and value

The location of the hotel was ideal for visiting NY City. Times Sq was a few blocks away along with Central Park and the Theather District. The room (King size bed) was good and clean plus the value was excellent for the City. Other than wireless interet (there is a charge per day) there are no ammentities. There are many restaurants near the hotel.

Good value

The Wellington is a great value in New York City. it is in a great location - close to Times Square and the subway. The hotel is quite old and could use some updating and the room was very small but it was overall satisfactory for our stay. It was hot and humid during our stay and the air conditioning worked great. Only real complaint we had is there was no ice machine or ice available to us.

Central Location, Small Room

The Wellington is a decent hotal right between Times Square and Central Park on 7th Avenue. It is a very tourist-y area. There are tons of out-of-towners with cameras and confused looks on their faces and you are on the main drag for the hop-on/hop-off tour buses. So if you can put up with feeling like you're in the middle of a tourist trap, then this will not bother you. You are 10 locks or so north of Times Sqaure, and only 3 or 4 blocks south of Central Park. So there is plenty to do. The room was very small, and the bathroom was miniscule. The room was clean and neat. The air conditioner was not working and we had to call the front desk. A friendly maintenance man arrived in about 30 minutes and fixed it. The water pressure in the shower was the strongest I have ever experienced anywhere. The hotel was incredibly busy with wedding parties and tourists. The lobby was almost always completely full of people. There is a mediocre diner attached to the hotel lobby, but it serves its purpose. They had good french fries. There are 3 pay-per-minute internet stations off of the lobby. There is also a sundry shop. I give it a 3.5 out of 5 overall.

Short Trip

The Wellington has a great Mid town location. It is easy to access public transportation and staff was helpful. The rooms are quite small but the purpose of the trip was to see the city not the hotel room! Would stay again!

My review of Wellington Hotel

Althought the rooms were a bit small it was a perfect location for our first trip to New York. Just 5 minute walk north to Central Park and 5 min walk south to Times Square. Also walking distance to Rockafeller Square and 5th avenue. Double decker tour bus stop across the street and subway just outside the door. Nice lobby and friendly helpful staff.

You get what you pay for

If you're looking for a room to sleep in, than this is the place. The room was nice and roomy, but the bathroom was tight and small. The location couldn't be better. Close to everything.

Great location

The Wellington is in a great location for tourists. It is well within walking distance of Central Park, Times Square and the theater district. There is a subway station right outside the door and the double-decker tour buses make a stop across the street. The Park Cafe is in the same building and has a good breakfast. The Wellington is an old hotel so clothes kept in the closet and dresser smelled like them after a few days. The temperature and pressure of the water in the shower varied at times. These are two minor criticisms. The room was quiet which was very important to us. The housekeeping staff was very good. Even on days when we went out at 11 am and came back at 4 the room had been serviced. I will definitely stay at the Wellington if I ever get to go back to New York!!

Great location. The location of the Wellington Hotel is ideal.

The Wellington Hotel is old as well as its furniture. The rooms are large and clean. It is close to mayor attractions in New York City. The subway is right outside the hotel.
