We stayed in the hotel for 3 nights, had to upgrade from standard room on arrival. Standard room too small for 2 adults with luggage. Upgraded room slightly better but only marginally. Rooms way to small for money paid. Wifi expensive, air con noisy - if you've visited NY before, look for something more comfortable. Avoid the bus tours -... More

My son went to this hotel two months ago. Negative points were: - Wifi service is paid and ; - I had to call the hotel to talk to my son. Calling the hotel is a bad experience. After my call (from outside the US) was disconnected twice by two different operators, I reported the problem thru email to the... More

First impression was that hotel was quaint, but then on closer inspection realised room was dated, small, bathroom tiny, there is no fridge, and wallpaper was peeling at the edges. Otherwise, was comfortable and clean enough, and air conditioned (essential at this time of year). While it is central for a number of facilities, I am happy to use taxis... More

Location is excellent, but rooms are too small, without mini bar, no safe in the room! Old beds, dirty looking carpets. WiFi is charged extra. Service - average for Us. I would rate it 2 star. Even phone in the room was not working for a few days.

This hotel is in a fantastic location, only a short walk away from Central Park and Times Square. We stayed here for 4 nights, it's a basic room not much in there other than what one would require from a room, that being said the bed was comfortable, the AC worked, and we definitely needed it whilst we were there...

A little outdated, but room was perfect. Bed was comfortable. Shower a little small, but it was ok. Housekeeping was always available. Ice machine is on the lobby. WiFi connection very reliable. Excellent location if you want to go to Central Park, Times Square, Broadway shows, 5th Avenue, museums and other main attractions in the City. Really enjoyed my time... More

After reading some reviews online, I was nervous about staying here. When we got there, that all went away. Great location, friendly staff, and everything was clean and organized. Room was a little small, but that didn't matter to us. We were hardly there for it to warrant a problem. Also decently priced. We did have a room that was... More

The Wellington is 110 years old, comprised of three buildings in mid-town Manhattan. The location is extremely convenient and feels safe, just a few blocks from MOMA, Rockefellar Center, Radio City Music Hall, Central Park, Times Square, beside of Carnegie Hall and across the street from Carnegie Deli and near Ray’s Pizza, Lindy’s famous cheesecake and the Soup Nazi of...

We have stayed at the Wellington once a year for five years running, for a girls shopping weekend to celebrate shared birthdays. This hotel's price for its location can't be beat in the city in my opinion. We are on a tight family budget and this hotel is a splurge for us. Yes, it is an older hotel, some of... More
