We chose to stay at Hotel Pennsylvania because of its location in downtown Manhattan, near the cruise terminals. We were right across from Madison Square Garden with subway stops and in a great location to walk or to take short cab rides to our downtown destinations. The hotel is older and the rooms are a bit worn, but comfortable -... More

Very classy old charming hotel with great service, but it has not been properly taken care of.. Great location though. and great when you only use it to sleep in. Close to Empire state building and Times square. Would definitely recommend it!

This hotel came as quite a shock for me. Upon first arrival, the hotel seemed nice and in a good location. However, once I entered the room, it was small, dark and the paint was peeling off the walls. Our view was of a lovely brick wall. My friends and are I very active so we wanted to use the... More

SUMMARY: Pros: Location, Free WiFi Cons: Unclean, Bad Staff, Crowded, Unhygienic, Over-priced. Best avoided. This would easily go as the WORST hotel stay I've had in my life. Coming from India, I have had my fair share of with dingy hotels and bored staff. Hotel Pennsylvania beats anything I've ever experienced though. To start, the hotel is NOT VALUE FOR... More

Nicely located across the Penn station, the hotel probably was good 100 y ago, when erected, or 30 y ago, when renovated. Not it is a huge, dusty, unwelcoming place. They bill $10+ for a day of slow internet, their breakfast is ugly (on the photo their coffee dispenser, the cheese was a mountain of burger slices without covers...), the... More

This hotel abused my credit card, something I had not experienced anywhere else before! I stayed at this hotel for 4 days. I had pre-payed my staying through a travel agency and upon arrival was asked for my credit card "just as a deposit", as it is usual in a lot of hotels. I specifically asked what was the purpose...

Let's face it, Hotel Pennsylvania won't be the best hotel you could go to. But we went as a group of eleven and out of the three bedrooms we rented, only one turned out to be dirty and sketchy. One was all renovated, with bright new carpet, new bathtub and toilet and even a flat screen TV. The other one... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
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.
