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.

Basic hotel 5 minutes from Time Square

A dated hotel which was good a standard. Close to Time Square and on the edge of Central Park. If I was coming back to New York I would think about coming back to this hotel but only because it is good value by NYC prices.

Great location. Fast room service with coffee in the morning. Major loud construction going on next door during the day. A/c not working well-but on balance great for the money.

Oct 2013 Stay at Wellington Hotel

We stay at the Wellington nearly every time we go to NYC. The location is great - close to Central Park, Times Square, Broadway theaters etc. Hotel amenities are modest, but it is clean and reasonably comfortable. There is a great cafe for breakfast on the first floor of the Wellington building.

Perfect Location

The hotel is under Renovation...The staff was very friendly and accomodating. Bathroom was small not enough room to hang towels. Room was warm no thermostat control. Window wouldn't open. Had an overall good stay.
