      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.

      Loved It!


      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.

      Cold/Hot/Noisy/Terrible Staff


      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.

      Weekend trip


      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.

      Noisy Air-con


      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.

      Nightmare on 7th Avenue - the dirty version



      Bed Linen was stained and had not been changed from previous occupants stay – we had to ask three times for these to be changed, when housekeeping staff attended totally surly in attitude. Towels were dirty and had to be changed. Waste Food on the floor from previous incumbents that remained there during our stay and may well be there now. Evidence of what appeared to be mouse droppings (yes I know what they look like) on the window sill. Evidence of what appeared to be blood stains on the sofa.

      Decor. In all areas of the room wall coverings were peeling away from the wall. The shower was coming away from the wall. The hot tap (faucet) was insecure and kept becoming detached. We did not get a city view we got a court view that looked directly into the plumbing/waste shafts from one window and into other guests’ rooms from other windows.

      Corridors from elevators to rooms, were not cleaned during our residency and could become a health hazard. The place needs to be totally renovated and should be regularly inspected by City Hygiene Officals.

      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!

      Ron's birthday in New York

      2014, and Ron got an extra 16 hours of birthday! Unfortunately we didn't talk to the kids - we were in the air at their awake time on the 9th their time.

      Oh no, Graham! No breakfast included with hotel. Don't you know how Ron likes breakfast. I'm not sure the hotel even does it, apart from an outrageous room service. I did a bit of " …

      After a very broken sleep, we were up at 5.15 for our trip to the airport. Taxis to the airport are fixed price in Rome - 40 euros from the station, 48 from the hotel. Being lazy, we took the hotel option.

      What an airport! It started off softly. We could go to a counter just like NZ, although we were a bit early, so we retired to a bench …

      For the third morning in a row, we returned to La Parisienne. We had to laugh. Several people on the HOHO buses had talked about the cleanliness certification on the front window of restaurants. A is good. B is "maybe a bit of a clean up needed", C means those little four footed creatures have visited, and Pending means they've been threatened with …

      A return to La Parisienne for breakfast. This time I opted for corned beef hash, as I've heard about it before but never had it. Ron had an omelette. (As an aside, among all the omelettes we've had while we've been away, none have come near to the daily ones I had last year in Vanuatu! He was the man!)

      Then back on the HOHO. I was keen to …

      This is Emily and we're in New York! It's amazing here! Our hotel is down the street from both Times Square and Central Park. It was a long journey to get here (three plane rides!) During this time I felt so sick and when we landed in Toronto after going through a very long customs ordeal with a very gloomy border agent we went for breakfast. I …
