Wellington Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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 I have to say the only reason I would not give this hotel a 5 is because it is outdated.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!

Incredible stay! Step outside and look to your right and you see Central Park, left you see time square. Perfect for a place to sleep, has all you need, is clean, and staff is great.

Hotel is not well maintained. No hot water most of time.

Not bad at all. The lady who checked us in at the front desk could use an attitude adjustment. She was rude and seemed annoyed she had to be there. Other than her it was a pleasant place to stay and a great location next to subways, Central Park and times square.

Close to everything, restaurants, shops, tours You get to experience the downtown life and with that comes a price. It is very noise at night and it can be hard to sleep through the night. I would recommend this hotel if you don't mind the noise coming from the street at night.

After a long day of visiting so many sites in NYC, this hotel provides the comfort, amenities and hospitality you absolutely need to get right back out there to enjoy the night life too! Great location can not be repeated enough. Staff was top notch and made you feel like a king. When I return to the city this is where I will be staying.

Excelente estadía, muy bueno para los viajeros que desean conocer NY. El desayuno incluido bien pero con pocas alternativas aunque el personal es muy amable.

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.
