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

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.

wellington hotel, nyc

the facility was relatively clean, staff was helpful when asked but, overall the hotel was not particulary helpful to a business traveler. It was much more like a residential apartment complex than a hotel.

Good location but shabby

Had great time in New York visiting all the well known landmarks. The hotel was ideally situated between Central Park and Times Square but was in need of urgent refurbishment. Rooms looked shabby, furniture was broken, curtains not fixed to wall properly, very noisy air-conditioning - I do not believe it warrants a 3* rating, I have stayed in much better quality B&Bs in England

New York Pass is a good way to see the sights as this gets you into a number of attractions, and covers a variety of periods. The more you use the more you save

Great Location, rooms leave much to be desired..

Fair experience. The room we were booked into had such a small bathroom that I was almost unable to sit on the toilet! We asked for a room change. WSe were eventually put into a very pleasant room in the "East Wing" of the hotel. The problem with the East Wing is that you must go down almost a full flighnt of stairs to reach the elevators that serve that wing. As my wife and I both have mobility problems, we will not book at the Wellington again.

Just a place to lay your head

The lady and I walked in, paused, and started laughing. The room was the size of a matchbox and the bed was sloped, seriously. The foot of the bed was about 4-5 inches higher than the center. We were so tired by the end of the night though that the uncomfortable bed wasn't an issue. The bathroom was no better. Cramped, and with a leak under and on top of the sink. It was about 25 degrees outside that weekend, but about 80 inside the room. We had to turn on the AC to balance out the temperature. There are no ice buckets in the room or ice machines on the floor; you must get those from the bellmen (PC: bell-persons?) in the lobby. On a positive note, the best thing about the room was the shower- powerful and hot. And the room wasn't dirty, just old and in need of renovation. The best thing about the hotel itself was the location. The R & N trains are literally 5 steps out the side door, and the 1 train is about 4 blocks away. The hotel is also on 7th Ave, so Times Square, the Broadway theaters, etc, are walkable. I'd say Penn Station (also on 7th Ave.) is also walkable, but that's up for debate. Bottom line- We would not look to stay here again, but if the price was right and it was another 2 night stay, we'd seriously consider it as a last resort. Just know going into it that it is only a place to sleep, and not relax and unwind in comfort.

holiday

The staff were fantastic, but was lead to believe that every room came with tea/coffee making facilities but was not, when went down to reception they said only the suites have these facilities, on check in, when we arrived at our room, it was dirty with cobwebs, and also stained duvet cover, the carpet was filty and stained, bathroom was not the best to, went and complained to reception, they sent in the cleaners, which soaked the place in bleach and cleaner.

Great holiday to New York convenient location

Small lobby with long queues to check in, overbooked our room and ours wasn't available first night offered money back to stay in one room 1st night then move, however when we saw room declined this and asked for another one. We are a couple who travelled with our Adult daughter, I booked two Queen size beds, offered King Size bed and cot at the bottom of it...Given a suite with two rooms, two bathrooms, more space, the decoration was tired but it was comfortable, could have done with a coffee maker in room or water dispenser on landing. Location excellent three blocks to Times square, Rockerfeller centre two blocks away subway right next to Hotel. Why do British Travellers get such poor rooms, bad location we were in the middle of the hotel with a view of air conditioning units on a flat roof between two blocks of the same Hotel.

Great Location, but needs lots of work

We had a great time in NYC, but the Wellington needs a serious update. Everything needs updated; worn carpet, halls are narrow and the luggage carts have marked and scratched trim. Couldn't turn the heat down. Anytime someone in another room turn on the water we could here it. Shower as the worst, especially when some turn the water on somewhere else. The staff was very friendly and helpful with directions to things we wanted to see.
