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

Perfect Location

The Wellington is a great value. Only recommendation for improvement would be free coffee in the room or a pot in the lobby for guests. The Park Café located within the confines of the hotel building is fantastic to breakfast. New York can be expensive, so deal with that and put it in perspective, you will find it doesn't disappoint. Staff was outstanding and the cleaning maids outstanding, timely and friendly...not what I was led to believe about New Yorkers. I am sure a few folks would have a complaint about something, but then again your expectations are out of whack and you are too spoiled. If you want perfection and snobby type service...then head to a Ritz type hotel. This place is perfect couples, families and small groups that want to really enjoy the town. It is close to everything from the Park to Theatre District and most of the sites that anyone would care to visit. ALSO IF YOU ARE THERE, GO ACROSS THE STREET AND HAVE A PASTRIMI SANDWICH AT THE CARNEGIE DINER. FANTASTIC!!! I also tried KATZ's, another outstanding deli...but, I have to say, Carnegie is better.

Very family friendly.

My partner and I stayed at the Wellington for 7 days from September 13th until September 20th. The room was fairly small, but clean, and comfortable - particularly the bathroom. Centrally located, we have no hesitation to recommend this hotel for anyone who is looking for not luxury, but adequate accommodation at an affordable price.

great hotel for the price

More than expected for the price.....we were given a two room suite with microwave and other kitchen items. This was by far the best value for the dollar. Very close to theater and shows The subway is right on the corner Good room service at a reasonable price

good value for the money

The Hotel Wellington was comfortable. If all you're looking for when you're in Manhattan is just a place to sleep and to catch a shower - this is it. We had twin beds and a TV in the room. That's ok because all we wanted in the hotel we stayed at was a clean room with a bathroom to get a shower every day. It is also convenient to the subway and many, many Manhattan attractions. I loved the short walk right out the hotel door to the subway and we were on our way. The hotel is located a short walk from Central Park in one direction and Times Square in the other. If you're looking for a quiet place to grab a drink, then Kennedy's is the perfect pub not far from the hotel. The bartender is from Ireland & he's very friendly and knowledgable about the surrounding area. We had a great time and would recommend The Hotel Wellington to anyone!

Big Apple Gem

We were extremely pleased with our trip to New York for New Years. The Wellington Hotel gets all "A's". Great location, and great stay. Cute little diner attached with great service. Close to 30 Rock plaza, Radio City Music Hall, Central Park, Times Square, FAO Schwartz, all the great shops on 5th avenue. Staff very helpful, hotel room view of central park was great. The room was a little small but who cares? How long are you really in it? We loved it. If you don't like this stay then no one can please you. Room 2445...we'll be back.

Take time to walk around in Central Park. See if you can recognize all the areas where you saw it in a movie. Also, take a boat trip around Manhatten Island. One that includes going down to the Statue of Liberty. The tour boats at Pier 83 are great. 3 hour tour is great and affordable. Try Roxy Cafe at Tines Square. Great cheesecake. Juniors is great too.

Convenient, good access to subwayand entertainment, clean and homey

The room was very quiet as it was on the top floor. It is in walking distance of the theater district and Lincoln Center. It is close to several different subway lines. While the room was small, it was not tiny. The bathroom was fine. I would recommend it.

Excellent place to stay!

My daughter and I stayed here for the three days and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The staff were great! They were helpful and so polite and just genuinely nice. The rooms were small but clean and attractive. Location was great. Right across the street from Carmine's Deli. There is a cafe (The Park Cafe) beside the hotel (you can actually enter through a side entrance in the hotel). They had great, resonably price food with very friendly wait staff. You could sit and watch the carraige rides go by from Central Park. I would definitely stay here again.

At the hotel there was a free publication at the bellman's desk that gave some great coupons. We used one for Time Scare and got two tickets for the price of one!
