Absolute beautiful hotel and the service was fantastic. We never got told anyone’s names when we checked in and had our bags brought to room otherwise we would have mentioned on here. Hotel is beautiful and seems to be right in between Central Park and Times Square. Great location.

Stayed: May 2017, traveled as a couple

I saw the 2 bedroom suite and stayed in a king room. Both were in good condition with plenty of room. The bathrooms are tiny compared to new hotels but adequate. The location is the main selling point. You have a subway station just outside the side entrance and another about a 3 minute walk. The staff was helpful and welcoming.

We stayed at the wellington last weekend to celebrate my mum's 60th! We had an amazing time, we first visited in 2010 and had no problem in booking to stay here again.
I emailed to say it was for a special occasion and was given an upgrade to a beautiful 2 bed suite all brand new and very comfy beds with brilliant pillows. Also was given chocolate and wine - perfect!
The reception staff were friendly as were all the bellmen who helped us upon arrival and departure.
The hotel has a brilliant location on 7th avenue in the middle of central park and times square. We found a lovely deli over the road too for a wonderful breakfast with a warm welcome. It was called la olivia or something along those lines. The subway is local too!
I would definitely recommend the wellington and when i return for my 4th visit to New York in the future this hotel will be the place I stay. Thank you!

Our flight arrived 5 hours late, we were tired, stressed and accidentally put into a room with one queen bed when we'd already paid for a room with two..back down to reception I went (it's now almost 2am & I am trying to muster what's left of my smiles for the gorgeous young Zac)
Zac tells me that sadly there are no more double-doubles or double-queens left in the hotel (PANIC!!) BUT...suddenly like a brilliant beautiful magician we are upgraded and spend the next 10 nights in a glorious 2 bedroom suite at no extra charge NONE!..NADA..ZILCH
I am a seasoned traveler and never in my wildest dreams did I imagine this would happen to ME in NYC!
OK the suite was a bit old and one of the wardrobes had a slightly dodgy door and sometimes the toilet 'ran on' a bit after flushing but hey, it's New York and it's an older hotel & that's life BUT at the end of every long hard day we got to lie on our own huge beds in our own HUGE rooms watching our OWN huge TV's..calling out stuff to each other like 'hey, want some of my corn chips?' LOL or 'Gee, should I have a long hot bath?' aaahh!
This was my 4th visit to my fave city in the entire world and THIS hotel made it simply magnificent! The locale is second to none, the staff are incredible and the facilities pretty cool too.
Molyvos, the Greek restaurant attached is pricey but very special and worth at least one flash-out meal - really divine! There are plenty of variety stores and eateries in the area & a huge wholefoods with in easy reach about 5 mins walk away @ Columbus circle.
Times Square is a 5 min walk in one direction and Central Park 5 mins walk in the other. If you want something high tech flashy & fancy then don't stay here but if you want a taste of NYC Art Deco and high romance then don't miss The Wellington!
Oh and to get free wifi for your entire stay all you have to do is ask nicely at the desk..worked for me! (don't know where all the negative reviews are coming from!)
Only negative I can report is the horridly rude female in the City sightseeing tour booking desk which is down stairs from the hotel - it is not part of the hotel but really dampened our experience. complaints were made and refunds by that company were given..full separate review on that experience to come!
Anyway back to the divine Wellington..the hotel itself is gorgeous, decor romantic and staff fab...will absolutely return. Thanks Zac, you are amazing! :)

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor to avoid street noise

The best thing about this hotel is its central location. The hotel itself is adequate for just somewhere to fall into bed at the end of a long day of sightseeing. This was my second visit to the hotel, my first was 11 years ago, and it hasn't changed one bit since back then. So it does seem a little dated and could do with a bit of a freshen up. Saying that I found it clean and tidy.

We were checked in and out quickly and given free wifi. Staff are ok, I don't think they are rude, just extremely busy trying to get through all the people.
