My Wife and I stayed at Hotel Penn on the recommendation of a couple of friends due to its' location and relative cost in comparison to competition in the area. My parents even stayed here when its was a Hilton in the very early 1980's. With the exception of the very lovely looking lobby, I don't think much else had... More

Stayed at the hotel last week and I never usually complain. After making a reservation to stay in this hotel for a week, my Fiancé and I were given a room on the 17th floor. "Great" we thought, being well away from the noisy 7th avenue below the hotel. After walking away from the pleasantly decorated front desk and lobby... More

On arrival I could not believe how good the location was as it was right in the heart of time square, walking into the lobby was almost breathtaking... More

One of the worst stays I ever had. Guy Checking us in was super rude. Came back after the Duke basketball game to let the manager kno about the issue. He gave us breakfast vouchers and drink coupons which came in our room! The next manager was even worse telling us to just check out. The shower went from 100... More

This hotel is centrally located so you can take advantage of both uptown and downtown. The rooms are a nice size but the hotel is old and so are the rooms. It could definitely use an update but for the price and the location we did not have any problems. Was clean and staff was friendly. Would definitely stay here... More

This hotel is right where the action is, 5 minutes down the road from Times Square, literally across the road from Madison Square Garden and Penn Station. The reception is vast and quite swanky. It has gift shops and a coffee shop as well which is handy. We were on the 17th floor which was good because New York never... More

We complained about this matter, but the people at front didn't concern about it and denied that there are bugs in the bed even... 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.
