    Hotel incrível! Surpreendeu as expectativas!!!

    Localização perfeita próxima da Times Square e Central Park. O quarto (Deluxe one bedroom suite) era incrível, enorme, limpo, com microondas e frigobar e com um quarto conjugado. Perfeito para nossa viagem em 3 pessoas. Todos os funcionários que conversamos ou precisamos de alguma informação foram cordiais. Foi o melhor custo/benefício que encontramos!

    Não tinha Wi-Fi gratuito, para nós não foi um problema pois tínhamos um chip com internet ilimitada, mas pode ser um inconveniente para muitos. Não tinha lavanderia no Hotel para que pudéssemos lavar nossas próprias roupas, tinha um serviço de lavanderia que era caro, cobrava por peça, portanto não utilizamos.

    Great location!

    The staff were all wonderful and accommodating. We asked to move rooms after our first night for more room and they were able to do it immediately! The new room had a sour smell so we asked to be moved again, my new keys were waiting when I got to the front desk. The staff is great! The bathroom in the newer renovated rooms was nice, good size. The location is perfect- right in between Central Park and Times Square.

    No a/c controls in room. It was rainy, but humid during the day and colder at night causing the heat to kick on. As people got hot, windows were opened up, causing the heat to stay on. It was pretty miserably hot and our windows stayed open the entire stay. It would dip into the 40s at night, but with the heat on, our room stayed comfortable. older room had extremely small bathroom.

    Perfect location and beautiful hotel

    The staff was wonderful. Best bellman you could ask for. They always checked to see if you needed help with directions. Cannot say enough about them!

    The rooms are hot. It was 22 degrees out and we slept with the window open to get air. It's an old building so you don't have individual control over the temperature.

    Worst hotel I have even been to

    I did not like anything about the hotel besides it's location and even that wasn't worth the stay

    I dislike that you had to pay for Wi-Fi, the hotel all on it's own was dated, bed sheets were stained, king size bed seemed like a full size, heater made loud noises that woke you up, the water temperature would change when the next door neighbors toilet would flush or at any point the water was being used elsewhere, the sheets were ripped and lights would flicker, elevator was slow. The price you pay is simply for the location. The hotel itself was not worth it

    Decent room for the price

    Hotel was clean, parking was $40 for 24hour and it was in a good location.

    Met our expectations

    The room was as advertised- 2 double beds, there was also a fridge and microwave. Enough room for 4 of us ( 2 older teenage 6 foot boys - bit of a squish in a double bed, but they figured it out!!) - The shower was high pressure and stayed hot for the four of us. The staff were courteous and very helpful. There is a coffee /breakfast restaurant on site that is convenient. We did not spend too much time at the hotel - it is very conveniently located to subway, walking distance to radio city, Times Square, Shops on 5th Ave and Central Park.

    The shower curtains need more magnets on the bottom. When you turn the shower on. The pressure from the shower causes the curtain to envelop you as you're showering!

    Great location, customer service could be better

    Location was great. Next to Carnegie Hall and convenient to the subway. Comfortable beds. Front desk staff were friendly We did get free internet

    Shower ran hot and cold with no notice. Bathroom was cold, felt like it had no heat Difficult to ask assistance because the front desk was always busy and there was either no concierge or the one available was not very helpful or friendly

    False Ads and Burning Hair Dryers

    The location was all we paid for. Great spot.

    The room was half the size of the photos and there was hardly room for the bed. The hair hair dryer set the smoke detector off. No fridge. No microwave. Had to pay for internet. Pretty much a bed storage closet with a smoking hair dryer.

    Tiny rooms and smaller bathrooms than on airplanes

    The location was the only thing this place has going for it.

    The rooms ware super old. Old furniture. Super small bathrooms. Extremely small showers. Not clean. A real dump in my opinion.

    Worst service I have EVER experienced

    The only good service I got was from the room service staff and the hotel handyman who came to help we with my heat after being dismissed by the front desk attendant

    The front desk staff I encountered upon check in was beyond rude, beyond inhospitable. I had to wonder if I was getting a rom for charity or had I not just spent a tidy sum to stay there. As a business owner, I had to speak to the management whose response was less than satisfactory. Had my check in by been at 11pm I would've cancelled and stayed elsewhere. Had I not been tired- the sidewalk outside would have sufficed. I will NEVER stay there again not recommend anyone to. I have Zero tolerance for bad service and rude staff. They should be let go or out around the back to count towels or something. Not interact with humans

    I liked the location to Central Park and Times Square.

    Ice machine access and air conditioner was touchy

About

Overview

The Wellington Hotel is an old-fashioned property in the heart of Midtown Manhattan near Central Park and Times Square. Built in 1902, it looks classic and elegant and is popular with tourists because of its reasonable rates and hard-to-beat location. The Wellington Hotel is well-located in Midtown Manhattan and steps away from Broadway and the 57th Street subway station. Central Park is a five-minute walk and the heart of Times Square is an eight-minute walk. New York’s celebrated Theatre District, world-famous Carnegie Hall, Rockefeller Center, and several museums, shops, and restaurants are at the palm of guest’s hands. Rooms at the Wellington are old-fashioned but have charm through traditional styles. Standard rooms offer one-or-two double beds or one queen-sized bed, while spacious Deluxe rooms offer a king-sized bed or two doubles and a separate living area. Many rooms offer city views of Central Park or Times Square and necessary conveniences for travel. The Wellington offers all-day café service, a 24-hour gift shop, business center and excellent Greek restaurant. With perfect proximity to all hot spots, there are few on-site amenities. However, guests can easily travel to the Time Warner Center, Lincoln Center, and great shopping venues such as Sak's Fifth Avenue, Bergdorf Goodman, Tiffany's, Bloomingdale's, and H & M. Though The Wellington is suitable for business travelers, the hotel tends to draw more vacationing couples, as the location is convenient to Midtown attractions and the subway.
