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
  • 24-hour business center

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.

Very good in all aspects. Clean and comfortable. I was at 10th floor and it was pretty quiet. The bathroom`s towels were clean and the crew was helpful and very polite. I would recommend this hotel to a friend.

very nice

We got a great rate and was pleased to be put in a decent sized room with two twin beds as ordered on the 11th floor. Great location in Midtown West near subway plus dining and activities. Also pleased with the bar in the restaurant downstairs. Friendly bartender, good drinks. All in all, very nice.

Comfortable beds, but no air conditioning

Hi, The only time we were at the hotel was to sleep. We loved the location and the beds were really comfortable. The only issue we had was the air conditioner was not working correctly. They did prop open the windows, but because it is in such a great location, it was really noisy all night. If they get the air conditioning back up and running, I will gladly stay again!

The Wellington, NYC

Great location, easy access to many local attractions, and always felt safe!! Bathroom has very little counter space, and no free wi-fi, but other than that, it was very satisfactory for the location.

Try eating at the Redeye Grill almost across the street. A bit pricey, but then again, it's NYC! Great atmosphere with oyster bar, piano bar and great food!

A great value!

The location of this hotel is perfect to reach most of the city's main attractions (Broadway, Central Park, Rockefeller Center, etc.# simply by walking, and close to the subway, taxis and buses if needed. With so much around, no additional amenities are required, although the 'Business Center' would benefit from a quieter spot. The rooms are ample for New York standards and very comfortable: they have everything you may need for a pleasant stay. The comfy bed and plush pillows assure a cozy rest after a long day trekking the city. Although not completely spotless, the room was very clean #no bugs, no stains, no smells, no hairs#. The staff was friendly, efficient and helpful. The Wellington is, for its price, location and comfort, a great value for a stay in Manhattan.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

If you're traveling with little luggage and come to this hotel (Wellington Hotel), you can take the subway from and to the airport (JFK). The travel time is approximately the same as a taxi ride, but you'll save a lot in transportation.

Solid old hotel

Nothing fancy but gets the job done. I asked to switch rooms because of jackhammering on the street at 1am and was accommodated to a higher floor on the other side of the building.

Famous delis are across the street in all directions. Splurge there once but you'll get better food at the little cafes along the way.
