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.

Cheap & Perfect Spot in Manhattan

Second visit to The Wellington. It's definitely improved since the last time I stayed. Hotel Front Staff Desk just okay. The Bell Guys are great! If you can get a good deal, go for it. It's in a perfect spot in Manhattan...with the good price and location...you can't beat it. So I'm hoping for another great deal with The Wellington again for my next visit. Thanks for saving me money and stretching out my dollar because NYC is expensive...amazing city...so every deal counts!

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.

Worse than I remembered

10+ years ago, I stayed at this hotel all the time. It was always hit or miss because they were renovating the rooms. Sometimes the rooms were huge and nice, and quite a good value. I assumed by now all of the rooms were renovated. I was wrong. We booked a queen size room and got a double bed in a very cramped, old room. The very small bathroom was something from the 1940's, with a toilet that belongs in a dormitory and a shower head that felt like needles on my skin. Check-in was ok but not friendly. I never complained about any of this to the staff, but the bad sign at checkout came when I was also treated coldly and no one even asked how my stay was. So, that gives me the impression that they knew what my response would have been, and were numb from hearing it.

Fantastic Location

Centrally located Central Park,Times Square as well as easy subway access. This hotel is a certified 3 star hotel for sure but it's worth the bang for the buck will I stay here again yes. Why? It's because this hotel is centrally located......

Fantastic location

We have stayed there over 5 years, at least twice a year and the location is perfect, the rooms and beds are confortable. My only complaint is that the 'city' is building a new hotel nex door and workers start sorking at 7:30 am with constant anoying noice since that time... but it is not the hotel's fault.. so... hope the construction finishes soon!

Perfect location

Great central location close to many attractions, Concierges are very helpful they sorted a taxi for our return trip. All staff were friendly. Had a lovely meal at there hotel's Greek restaurant. Not the most luxurious hotel but nicely decorated and clean. It was great as a base camp.

Managers are too busy.

We were not acknowledged when we were waiting to check in and when she finally saw us, she didn't help us, she said somebody will be right with us. We waited for another employee to help us.

Super Location !

Location was key for us and this hotel had it. One step away from two subway lines, great for getting any where on Manhattan ! Even went up to Yankee Stadium on that subway.

Birthday and Graduation Getaway

The arrival to the Big Apple was an incredible experience. Upon entering the hotel there was a mystic that was overwhelming; the staff was bustling and the attention was welcoming. The bellhops were active and inquisitive with guests. Some were more gregarious than others. After having checking in the luggage, we spent time walking around to see the city. We went to art stores, FAO Shwarz, and Central Park to become more accommodated to the new surroundings. The city was charming and the pace of life on the streets was everything one hopes for when in New York. The hotel, sadly, did not meet the same expectations. The room was very small, but had a great view. Some of the amenities were lacking. The absence of hot water, the shower had blistering water pressure, and the walls were somewhat thin. When entering the room, a claustrophobic feeling set in and it was difficult to find that special ambiance of a hotel room in New York. All in all, the stay was excellent because of the sights seen, except for the Museum of Modern Art for which we had high expectations. I would recommend the city to a friend, but not the hotel and not the MOMA. The booking company had excellent service and the hotel did as well. Unfortunately, the hotel room was not what we thought it would be and much could have been done to make it a better experience. All in all, it was an amazing experience to celebrate the special occasions of a birthday and graduation.
