Radiating history from its walls, the Wellington Hotel New York?built in 1901?stands apart from the fast pace of modern city life surrounding it. The plush lobby is decked out in rich tones and intricate murals, while focal chandeliers give the interiors a classical ambience.  If you are here on business, the hotel?s central location and 24-hour business center will cater to your every need. Midtown Manhattan is full of excellent restaurants; gourmets would do well to try the Wellington?s delicious plates of Greek mezze at the Molyvos restaurant, or the Park Cafe's informal all-day dining options.

Every type of cuisine is represented in this neighborhood, with area favorites ranging from Ray’s Pizza on Broadway to The Russian Tea Room on West 57th Street, where visitors can choose from more than 40 types of vodka, or book the facility for a classical afternoon tea. Retail therapy can be found inside the designer stores of 5th Avenue or the dependable establishment of Bloomingdale’s, which combines major lines and fresh labels.

Hints and tips
Some of the rooms have kitchenettes-perfect for hot snacks and downtime after a long day. If you're visiting in November or December, stock up on gifts and Christmas decorations at the Wellington's Christmas Cottage store.

NYC for the 1st time

The staff was friendly enough to people that speak English, but I did notice some frustration by the staff for some people who spoke very little or poor English. The rooms were adequate in size and we actually had 2 rooms and 2 small bathrooms. The blow dryer in one bathroom didn't work, but the staff gave us a portable hair dryer to use. The decor could use some updating. We ended up being on a smoking floor, but we weren't in our room much so it wasn't a real problem. The diner attached to the hotel is delicious and fast. We had the best omelets there and the price was not bad by NY standards.

Great position

Position was the best. Rooms tiny and a bit stuffy due to heat wave. Sometimes had to queue for breakfast but worth it. For any music buffs, hotel is right next to Carnegie Hall. Also there's a subway right outside the door. All in all great value.

Get a transit map from a subway station and buy a day unlimited pass or if there for 5 days as we were, buy a $27 ticket (less for over 64's).

Location, Location, Location!!

Walk out of the lobby doors, look right - there's Central Park! Look left, there's Times Square! Walk a few feet round the corner, there's the subway. The location of this hotel could not be better. Yes, the double room we had was small as with most NYC hotels, but not uncomfortably so. We travelled as a family, my wife and I had a standard double, but our 3 girls had a double double with separate bedrooms and a kitchenette, so they were very comfortable! The service at reception, the bell boys, room cleaning etc was spot on. One thing to look out for, if you order a cab for return journey to the hotel make sure the doorman tells the driver the correct airport. We were into the Jersey tunnel before I pointed out we were flying from JFK!! Mind you as they had run out of cabs and sent us a stretch limo for the same price, we did enjoy the extended journey!

Expensive but still alright

The location was excellent but the price was rediculous, especially for what looked to be a 50 year old room. Anywhere else in the country this room would go for $70 per night.
