Wellington Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

It’s an old run down hotel that hasn’t been maintained. It’s inexpensive, but not necessarily a good value given the condition of the rooms.

Our room was very spacious and clean, but dark (interior room with no view). Overall, we were pleased with the hotel. It seemed to be a safe area, very conveniently located to Central Park and Carnegie Hall, subway lines, etc. Only issue was the lack of heat. We were told that the heat only turns on when it goes below 50 degrees outside, so room got a bit chilly. We found this rationing of the heat very odd...

Overall, nice enough. Staff is very friendly and helpful. My room was very clean and the elevators for such a large hotel, were generally pretty fast. And I would probably stay again, but there were just a few things that may be considered minor, but may keep me from returning. First, there was no clock in the room. Yes, everyone has mobile phones now, but when my phone is across the room, I don't want to have to walk across the room and pick up my phone, unlock it and see what time it is. A big pain. A bigger pain is the bathroom. First the only way the door stayed open is with the chair up against it. With the door close, there is some constant heat source and is very, very hot. Luckily, Housekeeping must run into this often, because they kept the chair there. Second, whoever design the shelf over the small sink, never did anything besides washing their hands there, because even brushing one's teeth, water gets all over the floor, because one cannot lean close enough to the sink because of the shelf. There is no climate control in the room and I had to leave the window open or die from the heat. Once again Housekeeping must be used to this. There were also no hangers in the room, but I assume they must have left with previous occupants.

This is my 4th time at this hotel and I wouldn't trade it for any other location. Extremely close to Carnegie Hall, Time Square, Central Park. Friendly staff, clean rooms, nice old fashion diner downstairs and subway station as you exit the building.

Pros: 1. Best location - walkable to Central Park, museums, Met Opera, Times Square. 2. Two bedroom suites are very convenient for families. 3. Affordable. 4. Valet parking for 35$. 5. Very clean and well maintained. 6. Love “Beekman” shampoo and shower gel!:) 7. Friendly and helpful staff. Cons: 1. Outdated, needs renovation.

Friendly and clean Some of the views aren't that great but wasn't really a concern. Was surprised to have a mini fridge and microwave, that wasn't expected Would have loved to have had complimentary coffee tho.

My room was clean and quiet. Location in midtown will meet many guests needs.

Room clean but could use some tlc. Staff friendly. Doorman and bellman were super nice and helpful and. Friendly. Hairdryer did not work well. Thank urned off after 30 seconds. Room was very cold at night.

The hotel is well located and offers a clean room at a reasonable price. The front desk operates 24 hours, which was helpful for me, as I arrived very late from the airport. The room furnishings were outdated, though fully functional. There was a hair dryer, safe deposit box, and TV, but no refrigerator or hot water pot. Signing onto the hotel's WiFi was available for an extra fee. The coffee shop in the building is convenient, though there are less expensive places to eat within easy walking distance. Luggage storage is also available at no additional cost.

I should start by saying this was a last resort. I got into NY a day late due to flight issues and my hotel cancelled by stay. With Toy Fair being in town every hotel was sold out so I decided on this place only having seen 3 pics posted online. Big mistake on my part as sleeping at JFK would’ve been a better decision. Hotel staff are nice but check in is a bit archaic. They want you to write down your address and the names of everyone staying with you. Good luck getting people to be honest on that. Anyways upon entering my room which is 2 feet from the elevator so I heard the “Ding” every time it landed on my floor the lighting flickered for 5 seconds before turning on completely. I turned on the tv and the channels were complete static. Seeing as to how this was a last resort I definitely considered going elsewhere but my options were over $400 for one night so I resigned myself to stay. Unfortunately the worst part is that the walls are paper thin so I was awoken at 4am by my friendly neighbors acting out their porn fantasies. I heard “Oh my God” for 15 min before I had to bang on their door to kindly be quiet. When it started back up very loudly I called the front desk to get security which never came. Mind you I could hear EVERYTHING so I would know. Overall the hotel is a no go for me.

My favorite hotel for short stay in NYC. Choose it over other for location - 15 minute walk to Times Square, Met Opera, 5 minutes to Central Park, ideal for family suites with 2 rooms, cheap parking - 35$/day.

I've always enjoyed my stay at Wellington. The staff is just so great!

Staff was great. It was clean and comfortable. My only gripes were low water pressure and lukewarm shower.

Great location, nice city view, the room was perfect and comfy. Catherine was really kind in the check in, then Margaret at the check out make it easy and kind as well. Well done girls.

This hotel was a nice surprise, but also a little disappointing. Surprise in that for a very low cost, reasonable hotel, the building has a large presence, a doorman, and a upscale-like lobby. There are two restaurants and there was a vide of people coming, going, and enjoying the city. But hotels are at essence for SLEEPING and that's where I was a bit let down. Both the hallway, and especially the rooms were too hot. Better hot than cold as NYC just was getting out of a severe cold snap. Nevertheless the room didn't appear to have an climate control so I had to crack a window to balance out the temperature. The bed at first *seemed* comfortable but I woke up with a sore back. Furnishings were on par with any hotel. The bathroom was TINY...just wide enough for the tub and toilet and small sink opposite. Nothing wrong with that (being a man) but no place for makeup, lotions, etc. Would I stay again? Probably if price was the winning factor over other nearby places. To the plus, it's walkable to Central Park, Carnegie Hall, and Radio City and there are a lot of good places to eat in the area.

It was our first time in New York City the location was phenomenal just steps away from Time Square steps away from Broadway enjoyed the restaurant there at the hotel reasonably priced overall it was a great experience we are definitely coming back in July 2018 for our 35th Anniversary

For the price and location, I like staying at the Wellington. It’s great if my visit includes a Broadway show, and the valet parking is very reasonable if I drive in. My last visit the door key didn’t work and I had to get another room, but I was comped breakfast and given a suite. There was some loud banging (like pipes) occasionally, but if it continued I slept thru it. The rooms tend to be quite warm, I needed the air conditioner to sleep. The bathroom outlet didn’t work, which made hairdrying a challenge. I do love the Beekman 1802 bath products.

Staff was distracted at check in and making me wait until she was done joking with her other staff members. Check out staff was unapologetic about no fan in the room to block street noise. Bad experience. Still tired.

Ideal location - 15 minutes to Times Square, 5 minutes to Central park by foot. Affordable, little old style but clean and well maintained. Two room suites ideal for families.

I was thrown out of the hotel with my service dog. They wouldn't even look at my paper work and we had no other hotel to go to. It was a horrible experience. Manager was extremely unprofessional and rude.
