If you’re visiting New York City any time soon and you’re considering where to stay, you might want to think about the historic Wellington Hotel. With its prime site in central Manhattan, it makes a perfect base for sightseeing. Most of the major sights are within easy walking distance which means you can make the most of Manhattan while you’re there. You’re within only a few minutes range of the famous Broadway theatres, as well as dozens of restaurants and shops. The magnificent Empire State Building and Madison Square Gardens are also very close. If that’s not enough, there are museums nearby or you can stroll a little further to Central Park.

America is well known for its festivals and parades and New York City is famous for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. If you book your trip to coincide with Thanksgiving, you can watch the 86th parade from the hotel as it goes right down Seventh Avenue in front of the hotel.

Manhattan has thousands of fabulous stores, so if your idea of a perfect holiday is to shop until you drop then the Wellington Hotel is the ideal base for you as it’s near Fifth Avenue.

Even the most determined fashionista has to eat and New York City is rightly famous for its restaurants. If you just want to grab a quick bite and continue shopping, then you can choose from a vast number of New York’s finest fast-food joints. On the other hand, if you’re after a bit of fine dining, then Manhattan can oblige with a couple of dozen Michelin starred restaurants. And if you really want to live the high life, then you can choose from seven restaurants that boast three Michelin stars (just about the highest accolade in the culinary world).

The hotel itself has a long history of welcoming guests from all over the world. Established for over one hundred years, the hotel combines a lovely historic building with all of the modern comforts you could hope for. Each of the 600 hotel rooms and suites has its own bathroom and they all come with a high speed internet connection. (A good tip – if you book your reservation through the hotel’s official website, then your in-room internet service is free during your stay.) There is a selection of rooms to suit every taste, ranging from a standard single or double through to a one bedroom suite. (The one bedroom suite includes a kitchenette with fridge and microwave so you can do some of your own catering if you wish.)

A wide selection of services is available to guests including the Piccolo gift shop and Christmas Cottage for special souvenirs. You can choose from two restaurants: there is the Molyvos Mediterranean restaurant which has won awards. Or, if you want something less formal, then you could try the Park Cafe which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as quick snacks for hungry theatre-goers.
