This is my second time staying at the Wellington. I returned as I was happy with my first visit so knew what to expect. It's good value for money - a decent enough hotel in a great location, convenient for all the action. The Wellington is only a few minutes' walk from Central Park, 5th Avenue and about 10 mins from Times Square, so it's a great base to explore.
The room is typically small for New York, although it does the job. It has all the usual mod cons but can get a little cramped when you bring all the shopping back each day due to lack of storage space! I'd advise having a room on a higher floor as it's less noisy. We initially had a 3rd floor room overlooking 7th avenue, but moved to a quieter room on the 18th floor. The room was okay but the air-con was noisy and the tiny bathroom had a musty smell to it. The bed also felt small but it was comfortable enough.
It's usual not to have tea/coffee making facilities in the room. This is because with the huge variety of eateries close by, there really isn't any need to make drinks in the room. The Starbucks opposite the hotel makes great "English Tea" and I'd recommend having breakfast in the Deli opposite. Avoid the hotel's diner on the ground floor and the Benash delicatessen next door as they are both overpriced.
Friendly, efficient reception staff and porters. Good as a base to explore with no major shortcomings.
Tip: take a yellow taxi to transfer to/from JFK airport. It's just a standard rate of $45 each way (excluding tip). The shuttle busses are a lot more expensive.
