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
  • Gift shop
  • Hair salon
  • Multilingual staff
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.

Wellington Hotel

The room was small, the bathroom too small, dim lighting, elevators dirty. The only good thing about this hotel is the location. It is rated 3* but should get a 1*.

Not a very well=dsciplined management hotel.

Needs pin or clip for emergency party dress hold up but no one likes to help or willing to do anything for us. I just felt so bad for them. Not a very well=dsciplined management hotel.

Desireable location; undesireable room

While this hotel is located mid-way between Times Square, Central Park and Rockefeller Center, in my opinion the hotel is dingy: shower's water temperature fluctuates rapidly, nearly scalding; window did not seal so there is continuous draft; the closet floor is cluttered with hair, plastic parts, dust balls; if I wasn't already concerned about it, the protesters distributing literature complaining of bed bugs and their abatement makes that hotel pretty creepy... Beyond the hotel's check-in process look a long time and requires being escorted to the room--as though we all haven't found a hotel room before--and the unhappy duty of tipping a guy to leave the room...

Unhappy Camper

The room was uncomfortable. Drinking glasses hidden. If the bathroom door were opened you could not open the room door. There was no pad in the bathroom to collect water when leaving the shower to dry off. No internet although another guest said there was wireless in the lobby at least. I owed $2.60 and the desk wanted me to pay $3 as they did not have any change when I checked out. I told them they could use my AMEX card which will surly cost them more than that. I could not recommend this hotel to any one.

Wellington Hotel

Room not as requested. When fire alarm went off while I was away all day and stayed on through the time I arrived, I insisted on a diferent room. The bellman came without a rolloing rack - he and I had to hand carry haning items and luggage- cumbersome and awkward. The room I was moved to was TINY - no clock - phone stuck tempermentaly not allowing a dial tone unless jiggled several times to release the hang up button. There was no chest of drawers, so I had to live out of my luggage further diminishing what room space there was. NOT A GOOD EXPERIENCE.

Not Worth It

Location was the only thing positive I have to say. Hotel is old, rooms are tiny even for NY, and the accommodations were bad- extra hard bed, A/C didn't work and bathtub backed up. Had to request room transfer due to the 98 degree heat this past week. Staff was not very friendly, nor seemed to care I had issues in my room. I have stayed at much better for the same price, my advice... keep on searching!

Good location but not for nights sleep

It is fine if you are tolerant of Old and European style, no frills and noise. People slam the hotel room doors at all hours. All of the water pipes are so loud specifically the sink, toilet and showers. There is no soundproofing and therefore sounds like a curse ship horn when someone starts the shower. The room radiator makes it own interesting set of sound effects. It is kind of scary for teens that are used to modern hotel rooms. There was one small door lock. On the plus side they upgraded the room type after asking to a king bed for no additional charge per night. Would have liked a coffee maker in the room.
