Great stay in NYC

We had a Deluxe Double - 2 double beds with a balcony to see the city below from the 23rd floor. I did not expect to have a living room, little kitchen and separate bed room and 2 full bathrooms. The inside of the suite was great. It was a little pricy but we had several reductions which brought the price down. The location was great next to several metro stops within 2-3 blocks. The Breakfast was delicious and included in the room price. The staffs were very pleasant, polite and arranging.

Old, Cramped, & Old

The best feature of this hotel was location. It was close to everything we needed: Times Square, Broadway, Central Park, and important subway lines. The staff was extremely accommodating; they even went inside for more umbrellas for us. Aside from those positive factors, it was an outdated place. Older carpet and cramped hallways greeted us immediately as we entered out room. The bathroom was not completely clean when we arrived, and I'm pretty sure one day we had a set of stained towels. The shower was also tiny. The heat and pressure was sufficient, but the non-hotel shower curtain, shower-head leak, and slow-drain made for a semi-McGuyver obstacle course of calf-height water and mis-sprayed water. If you are not very particular about this sort of thing and you value location above all else, The Wellington Hotel is PERFECT!

better than expected!!!

For our first time in NYC.. we didn't know what to expect. The location was amazing, down the street from everything there is to see!! Times square, right there. Central park.. right there. Rockefeller & Carnegie hall.. down the street. It was nice all around. The room was warm, and inviting. The bathroom was super tiny, but it's all you really need. All around, i would definitely go back and book this hotel again when in NYC.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Do one of the bus tours your first day.. so the following days you can go back and do the things that interest you most, more in depth. It will also help understand the geography if it all there. Enjoy!

tiny little bit of room

Location is great. I enjoyed the shops and restaurants around. Great lively surroundings but my room which was on the 7th floor was tiny and bore. But overall I'll give it a two stars. Plus staffs could be nicer... customer service improvement. If you need just an overnight stay fairly priced for the location of the hotel then I'd certainly recommend it.

Weekend Getaway

We had such a wonderful experience at this hotel. They were accommodating from beginning to end. They had some computer troubles but they made up for it by providing us with free breakfast! The location couldn't be better! Walking distance to Broadway, Times Square, and Central Park! If you really don't want to walk you can pay $6 for a cab! There is also a subway station below to hotel, which was very accessible. We enjoyed our experience and will return and recommend the Wellington!
