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.

Neighborhood

With Central Park just three blocks away, the Wellington places guests close to a welcoming green space featuring a wide range of activities, including roller skating and boating, on the calm waters of the lake. 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.

Temperature

The rooms are not separately controlled with the heat/air conditioner. Our room was unbearably hot. We almost had to sleep with the door open to the hall.

Luv orbitz!

We have previously stayed at the Wellington and loved it...so this time was no different. Great value in a very pricey NYC hotel market. Staff is superb! Loacation cannot be beat! I must add that orbitz's emails notifying of flight changes and calls to update flight status are extremely helpful! I will recommend orbitz to all our friends and will definitely use you again!

Fluffys deli on the next block is a great place to grab some breakfast or a late snack. The park cafe within the hotel is also good...large portions of food!

Thanksgiving Day

A great Thanksgiving weekend. The Macy's parade goes right by the hotel. Easy to get to cabs so that you can easily do what you want to do. In the past I have stayed at various hotels, this one was nice because it had a restaurant in the hotel, great for breakfast in the morning. Sometimes it takes a while to get the elevator at peak times.

Fabulous Location

This hotel is in the best location you can get! Three blocks from Central Park, Times Square and Rockefeller Center a couple of blocks away - so much to do, see and eat! I love the historic feel of the hotel, as well as the big room size(unheard of in NYC), and the people who worked there are so nice. However, it is in great need of updates - a little paint, carpet and repair would make this stay that much more special. I would absolutely stay here again.

Good hotel.

The staff made everything really simple. They knew exactly what they were doing. Not a single one of them were rude in any way, shape, or form. The room was nice. Single bed, smoking. They cleaned it up so well that it didn't seem like a smoking room at all!

The 9/11 memorial is a great place to visit. Very emotional, especially for those who's lives were effected by it in some way.

Midtown/Broadway for 4 nights

The Wellington hotel was overbooked when I arrived and they reassigned me to The Blakley down the street. It was wonderful. I had to come back to the Wellington for the last night and they gave me a prime room. It was east getting shuffled and it was a lovely upgrade.
