Wellington Hotel, New York City 26/10/2007

Great Location...Dated Hotel...

Wellington Hotel, New York City We booked up The Wellington Hotel for Seven Nights on the Alpharooms website (cheapest we could find) for two people it came to £920; which is a good price for a week in a mid-range hotel in NYC. Most of the reviews read favourably, indicating that the main advantage of staying here was its location on 7th Ave/55th St. Upon entering the Hotel we were greeted with a HUGE grand looking chandelier, lighting up the reception area. The staff were pleasant and helpful when checking us in, upgrading us to a Queen Room instead of the Double we'd previously booked, without us even having to ask! Our room was located on the 9th floor (923 if you're interested!) But upon entering the lifts to head up to our room we got an inkling as to what was in store. It's a very tired, old hotel in desperate need of a makeover. The elevators are very slow (you can be waiting an age at busy times). The room we were allocated was clean and tidy, but felt dark and pretty uninviting. Old carpets that were frayed at the edges and old furniture that was a little cheap and rickety decorated the small space. There're no tea/coffee facilities in the room, which I missed after a long day out walking the streets of Manhattan. No safety deposit box in the rooms either, and not a great deal of space/storage generally. It was fine for a base in the city as you don't plan on spending a lot of time in your room, and we really couldn't fault the location (About 4 blocks down from Central Park and about 9 blocks ...

Comfort Inn (442 West 36th Street) 26/04/2004

Perfect for our Ten Day stay in NYC

Comfort Inn (442 West 36th Street) After originally booking up and arriving at West End Studios, and being faced with what can only be described as a bomb-site of a hotel room, we immediately checkout out and hauled our suitcases (through the rain!) downtown to try and find a hotel that would put us up for our ten day stay. After trying a few and being turned away we eventually arrived at a Comfort Inn, they unfortunately had no room at the Inn (!) but told us of another Comfort Inn within walking distance. So again, we set off in the rain with suitcases in tow and finally arrived at our Comfort Inn on 36th Street/9th Avenue. The staff were SO helpful. They were very understanding of our plight and I think took pity on us! (Well, we did look like drowned rats by now!) They provided the three of us with a room and extra bedding to accommodate us. The free breakfast the following morning was very welcome. Although it was only a choice cereal, breads, bagels, fruit and preserves it set us up for the rest of the day and on our return there was always tea/coffee facilities available in the lobby. (We even made up our own packed lunches from the breakfast selection each day to take with us!) Half way through our stay we had to be moved to another room, as our original room had been booked out for a couple of nights, but we were then reinstated to the previous room (which had a fantastic view of the city at night) for the remainder of our stay. Although the rooms weren’t huge, they were fine for us to use as a ...
