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

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.

Great Vacation

The room was perfect, lots of space and a private balcony. Would recommend the Wellington to anyone wanting to visit New York city. Great location, easy walking to any attraction as well as availability to transportation for those who cannot walk too far. Staff was very friendly and very, very helpful when looking for things to see and do.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

Dont buy theater tickets ahead of time if you dont have something specific you want to see. You can walk down to Time Square one hour before you show and buy tickets for half price.

Great NYC Experience

From check in to departure we had a very good stay at the hotel. We were a party of 4 in one room and were very pleasantly surprised with the size of our room. 2 bathrooms made things much easier. The view of Central Park from the room was fantastic! The staff were great, housekeeping was excellent. The location of the hotel was suburb. A stone's throw from both Central Park and Times Square with subway stations near by. We caught the train in from JFK and only walked a block to the hotel. Great hotel for our long weekend. Just what we wanted. Would recommend it.

Awesome stay!!!!!

Stayed at this hotel for 5 days and it was absolutely wonderful!!! The location is great because it is blocks away from everything--including Central Park and Times Square. The staff is so friendly and anxious to help with everything. Our room was so comfortable and we never heard any noise from anyone on the floor. Housekeeping staff were very prompt and very friendly. The gift shop staff also were very helpful and friendly. Doormen very efficient with getting you directions and transportation if needed. The diner attached to the hotel had the most delicious breakfast. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and lots of it had to do with the stay at The Wellington. Will definitely return as soon as I can.
