1st time in New York !

Hotel is in a perfect location , really central & about 5 mins away from Times Square ! Rooms are currently being updated , we were in an old room in which the radiator banged every hour or so , didn't find this an issue though . Will definitely use the Wellington in future & wouldn't hesitate to recommend to friends .

Great Location!

The Wellington is in a great location. Everything was withing walking distance. We walked one block to watch the Macy's parade. We loved the balcony on our room. The staff was very helpful and nice. We had the best trip. We will stay there again.

Great location.

The location is fantastic. It's 10 minutes walk from Times Square. The facilities is subpar. Good price for the entire experience though.

Don't eat in the dinner on the south-west corner of the hotel property; prices are comparable to other near by locations but the food quality is poor.

It is what it is.

An obviously great location and large capacity is all this hotel can offer. Rooms were like closets and the hotel was packed to the gills with international tourists. NYC is not shy with the room taxes/ tourist penalties either, so I tend to stay in bnb or other options ever since. They lost one of our bags in storage as well and it was never recovered.

Clean and comfy bed. Had an iron and ironing board. Bathroom is perfect. I would rank highest if there was free wifi but that's asking a lot in NYC
