The staff made this hotel stay! Rooms are dated but very clean. Recommandations for resturants were right on. We were there for Billy Joel concert at the Gareden right across the street. Will not hesitate to stay there again.

The hotel is perfectly located in front of Madison Square Garden. The major attractions of New-York are accessible within minutes via the metro lines. The room was correct and the cleaning was done daily but the furniture and bathroom were relatively old. Near to the hotel, you can find a large variety of places where you can enjoy a breakfast,...

The location can't be faulted but it has it has had some hard use over the years and it does show. Staff are very helpful and it is central. Have stayed here on three occasions and will do again as I know what to expect.

Unbeatable for location but increasingly grotty and run down. Good value as long as you can tolerate old, squeaky beds and antiquated bathrooms. Wi-Fi is rubbish! The staff are pretty unhelpful on this matter...they claim it works upstairs but not in the lobby.

Stayed 16-19 Nov. The first thing I'll stay about the Hotel Pennsylvania is that it caters for people who know and understand the term... “You get what you pay for’ and that’s fine, a special for $650 for 3 nights...

Rooms are too old, wet carpet, bad for allergies. It would be nice if had free wi-fi. It's great for staying out all day and just coming back to sleep. In front of Madison Square Garden, 10 min walk to Times Square.

Average accommodation but good for tourist on a budget. The place is very close to all shopping districts , the Central Park, time square , Empire State bldg etc. Please do not try breakfast or food at the restaurant downstairs , it's incipid :( there are many great eateries in the vicinity, do explore them instead)

Very disappointed in this "2 star" hotel, as quoted by staff, although rates equate to a 4 star hotel. The hotel lobby is very attractive although the line to check in or do other front desk business takes forever. No one gets into any hurry to serve customers. The room hallways are run down and dirty looking. The rooms are... 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.
