So, I read the other reviews upon booking this property and was skeptical. You visit NYC for the city, not the hotel. Traveling with my two kids, sister and husband, I needed space and value. This hotel is a gem! I highly recommend the 4th floor apartments. There isn't an elevator which you may read on other reviews, so plan... More

My son and I stayed at the Chelsea Star for five nights in late July, and had a very positive experience there. Very helpful, friendly staff. Excellent location. Nice rooms. When we first arrived, we were told that the basic double room we had booked was not available, so we were upgraded to a suite. Very nice! After 3 nights... More

Service awesome- all people were super friendly and extremely helpful. Also the rooms are very clean and the bed was really comfy. Also it was pretty quiet in the morning (no street noises woke us...

We got a Jr suite which has 2 double beds, couch (pull out). Also a flat screen TV and free wireless. Like I said it's under construction. There is a... More

We stayed at the Chelsea Star hotel on our first trip to NYC. The service was good and the rooms were well maintained. We stayed in one of the deluxe rooms with a private bathroom. We are glad we picked that option as restrooms in general in NYC are a commodity. They are far and few as far as public... More
