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.

Old World Style

If you are looking for Old World Style with stellar service, this hotel is for you. If you appreciate convenience, location and kitch, Hotel Wellington will not dissappoint. If you are looking for a national hotel chain in appearance and room configuration, this is not for you. The rooms are modes and small in comparison to new hotels. The bathroom is typical NY apt style - toilet and sink are opposite each other with just enough room to stand in between and function. There is an actual closet with enough room for your clothes and suitcases. We loved it.

Great location

The Wellington is in a great location for tourists. It is well within walking distance of Central Park, Times Square and the theater district. There is a subway station right outside the door and the double-decker tour buses make a stop across the street. The Park Cafe is in the same building and has a good breakfast. The Wellington is an old hotel so clothes kept in the closet and dresser smelled like them after a few days. The temperature and pressure of the water in the shower varied at times. These are two minor criticisms. The room was quiet which was very important to us. The housekeeping staff was very good. Even on days when we went out at 11 am and came back at 4 the room had been serviced. I will definitely stay at the Wellington if I ever get to go back to New York!!

A Home Away from Home

This is our fourth time to stay at the Wellington. That says a great deal about how comfortable and at home we feel there, especially because of the staff, who are so friendly as to seem like family -- and they did the first time there as well as the fourth. The location of the hotel is wonderful. It is close to many restaurants in every price range imaginable. It is within walking distance of the theater district and shopping. There is a subway station practically in the lobby. And don't pass up The Park Cafe!

Carve: Wonderful pizza; great, friendly staff at 47th Street and 8th Avenue. You can get a HUGE slice of pizza and a drink for under $10. When you finish eating, walk up a block and visit Scent-a-late, a great litle shop with unique merchandise. It is on 48th Street just a few doors west of 8th Avenue.

excellent location, friendly, just perfect

The Wellington was exactly as stated, we arrived early, they checked us in, upgraded our room for free, the corner room with the two windows was a fantastic view. We could walk to Times Square, Broadway, and everything is right there. All staff were very pleasant and willing to help. I would definitetly stay again and we probably will soon. Doorman got our cab whenever we walked out the door. Great Shopping trip with my teenage daughter.

Starbucks across the street, in hotel restaurant, and you must try the cheesecake from Lindy's about a block towards Times Square, the seven block walk to Times Square does not feel like it, because you are constanly looking. Walking distance to the shows

Great Location

Locations was fantastic, easy to get to meetings and Central Park was really close so was able to take a nice run there. Only downside is that there was no control on the heat so I ended up sweating all night.
