The Wellington Hotel is located on Seventh Avenue at 55th Street in the very center of Midtown Manhattan, just steps from Broadway, New York’s celebrated Theatre District, and other performance locations, such as the world-famous Carnegie Hall and New York City Center. A leisurely walk quickly takes you to Central Park, MoMA (the Museum of Modern Art), Lincoln Center, Rockefeller Center, several museums and many shops and restaurants.
The Wellington Hotel is just one short block from the lights of Broadway and within easy walking distance to all Broadway theatres. No first-time visit should miss a Broadway performance.

Our City Experts desk, located on the 55th Street side of the lobby, can assist you with purchasing tickets to all Broadway and off-Broadway shows.
