                  The location was awesome, and the lobby was beautiful

                  Yes, did not like the bathroom way to small for an suite, there was mold in the bathroom, was not very clean, the kitchenette was missing everything, no complmentary coffe, or cups nothing

                  I liked the proximity to several destinations.

                  The lack of ramps from one wing to the other. I stayed in the east wing and it was tough for the bellman to haul luggage. The size of the elevators should be larger as well.

                  It was an OK Hotel. Not worth the price anywhere other than manhattan. However for it's location and facilities, it is quite a good deal for people who want to stay near the tourist attractions for not a lot of money

                  The location is good - it's on 7th Avenue and 55th Street, and easy to find.

                  The heating system is runs on steam (according to the staff) and there were very loud clanging noises from the pipes throughout two of my three nights there. Very bothersome. The room was very dated and needs renovating. The toilet seat paint was cracked and peeling!

                  Location

                  I had requested a non smoking room, They completely ignored my request and placed us in the smoking area of the hotel. We asked to change room and they told us it was was not possible until the following day and that the same type of room that we had paid for the deluxe double double would not be guaranteed.We were forced to stay in the roomThe smell was disgusting and you felt sick walking to the room. We were not compensated in any way for our discomfort. very poor!!!

                  We stayed at the suite and having the kitchenette was very convenient. Their internet connection was super.

                  It seems the walls are thin and we had to bear listening to piano playing from next door well into midnight. Also, the service people use the same elevators and there is a long elevator wait during some morning hours.

                  The location of this hotel is right between Times Square and Central Park, so it makes it really easy to get everywhere.

                  The location is excellent - right in the middle of midtown,close to central park,TimesSquare etc. We had a two room suite which was fairly spacious for NYC.

                  the hotelis in serious need of refurbishment. When we arrived we found two lights not working, the fittingfor a plug socket hamging off the wall and the fridge iced up and packed with towels to catch the drips! the kitchen was inadequately stocked - no crockery or any meansof cooking. When we complained we were told that guests were expected to bring their own saucepans.

                  The location could not be better and cleanliness was also better than I expected. I definetely will be back and recommend the Wellington hotel to everyone.

                  A little more space, specially wardrobe, would be better as we were 4 staying for 9 days.

                  Position near the Central Park, near 5th Av., near theaters, near Time Square and restaurants.

                  Nothing to say

                  It's location in midtown Manhattan was very convenient for a tourist like my self, it's very close to all the attraction points of NYC, it's a walking distance actually.

                  We were a family of 4, 2 adult and 2 older teens. The room/suite was perfect, 2 separate "rooms" with a kitchenett between. The location of the hotel is perfect, near Central Park, Time Sq, subway round the corner, deli across the street.
