Wellington Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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.

The location was great but the room was small, the elevators slow, and when flushing the toilet the handle had to be held for 10-15 seconds to be sure it fully flushed. Also, the temperature of the hot water in the shower kept fluctuating to cold. The a/c unit did not function the first night but was promptly replaced by the staff when the front desk was notified. If price is a consideration and you are willing to put up with the inconveniences, this hotel may work for you.

Very good hotel in Manhattan. Rooms are small but more than enough to sleep and spend some time. Bed was great. Valet parking is 35 per night but in the near area are early birds special which i used for my car. I will def come back. No internet included. It needs to be purchased!

Hotel building is a little old and room is small. But, this is located next to Carnegie Hall, very great location. Hotel price is very reasonable, but you have to pay wifi if you use it.

Wellington has a nice entrance and friendly staff. The location is about 3 blocks uptown from Time Square off 7th and the subway entrance is right outside the side door. The downside is our room was very small, the beds were short (I'm 6'1) and my feat extended over the edge. The shower would not stay a constant temperature. Please watch you children as they can get easily burned. The hot water is very HOT and never stays constant. Our AC unit worked but was very loud all night. I would recommend this hotel if you are looking for a decent hotel for a good value and Great location but if you are bringing a spouse for a romantic getaway she may be disappointed.

When reading the reviews I was unsure what I was getting myself into. I have to say the only reason I would not give this hotel a 5 is because it is outdated. The location was excellent. We were a few blocks from time square on the same street. The Q train was on the side of the hotel feet away. We stayed one night to put my daughter in college on the upper east side and it was so easy to travel the subway to her college. The bathroom was totally remodeled and the water temp and pressure was great. I really have nothing bad to say. Very clean.

Hotel staff seemed like they didn't want to be there very inattentive. I was given the wrong room with a king bed when I paid extra for a room with two doubles they fixed the problem and gave me breakfast vouchers which trust me you don't want to eat next door. Our room had a leftover dirty hair spray bottle which im assuming house keeping forgot to take out. The room was old and smelt a bit funny. Yeah do yourself a favor and find somewhere just a little nicer.

It was an overall great experience. The location is awesome and the staff was very helpful.

I always enjoy my stay at the Wellington, I always get the best service and they will upgrade your room if they have rooms available. They always upgrade to an awesome room. I enjoy the cleanliness of this hotel. You will not be disappointment in your stay. 5stars all the way!!

When we pulled up and greeted I knew this was a great hotel. The room was beutiful. I wanted to stay longer. I will be back!
