I reserved this room through Priceline and was pleasantly surprised at the accommodations. The decor of the lobby and room was very modern. The staff was courteous and helpful. The staff provided wonderful service to us. Jeremy, at the front desk, recommended an Italian restaurant in Greenwich village. It was also a great suggestion. We were able to get a... More

Great hotel to stay in NYC. Great location and great service. Although it did not serve breakfast it had many options near by to get food. The rooms are small but very clean and neat. We had a good stay!

The area was very good and we feel safe. Easy connection to the subway to talk you downtown and other places e.g. Brooklyn. Easy walk to the world biggest supporter store Macy's, close to Empire State Building. We will stay there again and would recommend it to our friends. All the staff was very helpful and make you feel VIP.... More

We stayed at the Gem Chelsea for 17 nights. The main reception area has recently been re-furbed & looks great. The staff were very helpful, the rooms clean, air con & free wi-fi excellent & let's not forget the rooftop - such a plus. Nothing better at the end of a long day sightseeing than to sit up there, have... More

We were very satisfied with the GEM Chelsea. I think my favorite part about it was that the hotel is small and intimate with a boutique hotel feel to it. The location is great - on the corner of West 22nd and 8th in the Chelsea neighborhood. There is a great selection of food options nearby and they run the... More

Visited NYC for the weekend. The Gem hotel was a great base to explore. It was really easy to take a lovely walk from the hotel and zigzag between all the famous Manhattan attractions on the way to Central Park. It's really close to the High Line and Meatpacking District! The Hotel is on a pretty street and was nice... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
