Our first day in New York began with a stop at Bloomingdales as we had some time to kill before our Circleline cruise of the New York harbour. Shopping at …
Final Curtain Time.Well after an all to brief visit to New York it's time to pack the bags and head on home, albeit slowly. Managed to make it to the Rockefeller Center today, started off nice and sunny and not to cold, view from up there similar to Empire State Building, funny that, ant city! One thing they do different is have a clear elevator …

Start Spreading The News:Well all of the sudden my trip is winding down, on the home stretch now even though I have headed north and not west!

So none of us realised that we were flying on Friday the 13th...!!
The last day of a holiday is always a bit of a non day as you're pretty much waiting around for it to end, and we didn't really have any plans either. The day started with eggs benedict. Possibly one of my favourite breakfasts ever, totally ruined by this restaurant.... It …

Historical Traveler Reviews Wellington Hotel New York City
All is well at the Wellington Hotel
Our stay at the Wellington was a wonderful experience in every way. The Staff was very friendly and helpful. The King size room that we stayed in was the best part of our trip. With nice decor and a spacious bathroom we knew our money was well spent.We look forward to our next trip to New York and of course we will stay at the Wellington Hotel.
The hotel ws clean centrally located. The best thing was the staff, who bent over backwards to give us great service.
I was great annd reasonably priced for all we got there.
Greeted with a bigot at check in. Room was way to hot in the winter. Had to have window wide open. Way too much noise on the street. Heard other guests complain about room too cold. Will never stay there again.
There is nothing well about the Wellington
The room was small with stained carpet. The bed. a double was comfortable. The bathroom was miniscule. The grout at the bottom of the bathtub was dirty. The lobby is original from the 1930's. There was no service. We checked in early, the room was not ready and we checked our luggage. When we returned to the hotel at midnight, the bellman said he was going off duty and we had to wait 20 minutes to get our luggage. We checked out early the next day, and checked our luggage- again a long wait to leave it and retrieve it. The only thing great about this hotel is its location. I would never stay there again.
The Wellington was nothing fancy. We waited in a really long line to check in. The room was clean (bathroom was spotless), but the bed was a bit uncomfortable. The Wellington served our purposes well as it was inexpensive and in a central location.
We have stayed at the Wellington now 3 times . Its comfy,convenient and kind of nice but the noise from the heaters and the pipes rattling were abit too much. Also the heater mechanism never worked and was beyond me.
Still, we are going again this Xmas
The Wonderful Wellington
To All- I've been to the Wellington Hotel a few times in the past year, and each visit is as wonderful as the one before. The doormen, front desk staff, and sales office are very friendly and have helped me with whatever I have needed. On one visit I stayed in a room with a terrace. It had such a feeling of "The Big City". I hope that you enjoy your stay as much as I did.
The Hotel from Hell
Without a doubt, the worst experience I've ever had. Filthy, discourteous, unconcerned . . . do you get my drift? Avoid this place or your trip to the most magnificent city in the world will be ruined!
I went to New York with my friend Beni. We were so amazed about the city that we could finally accept the bad hotel.
In our room we couldn't close the windows. When we came back from visiting the city, our room was always ice cold. The nights were really hard: This little beds and the cold wind, buh!
But, we will never forget this holiday trip!
