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.

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.

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.

Oct 2013 Stay at Wellington Hotel

We stay at the Wellington nearly every time we go to NYC. The location is great - close to Central Park, Times Square, Broadway theaters etc. Hotel amenities are modest, but it is clean and reasonably comfortable. There is a great cafe for breakfast on the first floor of the Wellington building.

FIRST VISIT TO NEW YORK

The hotel was recommended to me by a friend who had enjoyed her stay. I was happy to be guided by her. The hotel is excellently situated for tourists with Times Square and Central Park within minutes walking distance. The hotel's staff couldn't do enough to make our stay comfortable and welcoming. I would happily recommend The Wellington to any visitor

NYC with tourists

Great location. Fast room service with coffee in the morning. Major loud construction going on next door during the day. A/c not working well-but on balance great for the money.

Weekend away at Wellington

This was a really good location. We walked to theaters and when we wanted to take the bus or subway it was very close. Space is at a premium in NYC hotels but the room was lovely and space was well used. Would have loved an ice machine on the floor we were on and we waited for the elevator a bit, but overall it was a good deal and a great long weekend.
