Wellington Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The Wellington is a little far north of Times Square and NYC's more touristy aspects, but it offers convenient dining and shopping options nearby and persons comfortable using the subway can move about the city easily. The staff is friendly and helpful. The room was clean, but small as you would expect in a building of its age. My only complaint was that I could not regulate the air conditioning to my satisfaction.

My wife and I stayed in this hotel during weekday. The location is fantastic. It is walking distance to time square and central park. There are many nice restaurants and coffee shops around this hotel. We bought our basic room from general travel website. But the front desk was so nice that they gave us a room on 27th floor which is their highest. It has a great view towards Central Park. I slept very well during night. Yes, there may be siren from emergency vehicles, which is what you expect in the middle of Manhattan. Other than that, the room is quiet. The hot water temperature fluctuated during the shower. I am not sure whether it is because our floor is very high. But this is not a big problem for us. The window can be opened to get fresh air from outside.

Our double room was very large for Manhattan. The bathroom was small with almost no counter space for toiletries. The room and bath were very clean, but all is in need of major updating. The major downer--and the reason I would not return-- was that wifi was only available at a very high cost. It really should be free to guests, given the room's price and overall need for updating. The room is in Times Square, which many guests would find ideal, given proximity to theaters.

Convenient to Broadway theaters, but elevator cars are much too small for a hotel with so many rooms/guests, and the plumbing was terrible: some mornings I could not get any cold water in the shower or hot water from the tap.

Terrible outdated rooms and lobby. Bathrooms are cramped with no ventelation

Great location close to Central Park, not so central to Broadway and Times Square. Hotel was beautiful old world style in lobby but rooms and hallways definitely needed some updating. Showering was interesting at best. Water temperature varied greatly from minute to minute regardless of whether any other water was being used within the room. Wifi did not work in the room, but we did not complain as we were given a complimentary free room upgrade to a suite that comfortably slept our family of four and included a kitchenette area. Wasn't bad, but wouldn't stay again.

I arrived in my room to find the bed not made and the room smelling of cologne. Me and my guest had to ask for another room because our room was not ready when we opened the door. The rooms were small but ok.

The door toward the room from elevator is annoying all night long keep blogging every time someone will come in or come out. And the wall where the tv is has a noise that something is cracking the wall.

It was horrible experience, I ordered the room with 2 doubles, but they said there is no room available right now, and they gave as a king room instead. The the room was extremely small and we argued with, finally they admitted there was some double room left and gave as room You need to pay for wifi, toothbrush tools and there is no place to get drinking water in room In addition, the water gets very hot sometimes, and super cold, it was unforgettable shower experience

I will definitely stay again in this hotel. The location was very convenient. It was between the Central Park and Time Square. There are lots of options of restaurants within walking distance, Dunkin and Starbucks across the street. All the stuff was very polite and nice. The room was clean, and the bed and pillows were very comfortable. I think It was very affordable and it was better than I expected.

I was close to everything! Hotel was a little run down but clean.

Very unprofessional staff. Very crowded. Rooms were per the website advertisement. However, the hotel is located in convenient location within the walking distance from Central Park, Times Square, Subway etc.

The hotel was in a very nice area. Hotel staff was amazing and very sweet! I enjoyed the view from the room.

Overall, it was a great place to stay. We could walk to the opera from there, Central Park, Times Square, and the subway downtown was right outside the door.

Had an excellent stay will stay again Was upgraded as well

This hotel is right in the middle of everything we wanted to do and see. We were able to walk to all the locations. A subway stop was literally right outside the front door, we did ride the subway a couple of times. The hotel staff was extremely polite and helpful. The room we stayed in was clean and the staff kept it that way. It could have used a coffee pot thou. The café downstairs was very good and quick getting the food out.

The heater didn't work, they said they fixed it but it only came on when it wanted to not when I wanted it. It was very cold out and I needed heat but only got warm sometimes.

The staff were helpful especially the concierge. Our room was tidy.

I only stayed one night and it was as expected. It is very close to everything. The downside of it was the a/c.

Our room was amazing, not the small matchbox that sometimes you expect when booking this time of year. Staff was attentive, especially the guys at the door, very friendly and always did everything the could to make us feel welcome.
