For a one-night Manhattan mini-break this was perfect. I found it on booking.com and reserved a double room (one double bed) with shared bathroom for about $150, including tax. The staff was courteous about letting us leave our luggage in a locked closet before our scheduled check-in and again after our check-out, allowing us to wander Manhattan unencumbered while we...

The Chelsea Inn is an inexpensive place to stay in a great part of New York City. The less expensive rooms are of a hostel quality. Pay more and you do get more such as a private bath. The property was a little worn but it was clean and the front desk employees were helpful. There is a night club... More

My husband stayed at the Chelsea Inn on a last minute trip to NYC March 11th. The hotel is clean, convenient and at an excellent price. The staff was very accommodating and helpful. We had a guest room that was very small, but fine for just the two of us. We did share a bathroom with 1 room next door,... More

I stayed here for a business meeting November 9-11 and it was great. The staff is very accommodating and the place is very clean and worth whatever you're paying! I will definitely stay here in the future.

The "master suite" sounded like the perfect choice for us and our two adult children for Christmas because it was said to accommodate up to four and included a kitchenette, coffee maker, microwave and fridge... But when we arrived, there was no coffee maker and the kitchenette amounted to a sink, two dinner plates, two mugs, one champagne flute and... More

My daughter and I stayed at the Chelsea Inn during our first ever trip to NYC. It was conveniently located and the cost was within our budget. What sold us was the staff. I had some concerns (like ability to store our luggage) which were promptly addressed. Our room was boutique quaint, with two double beds, a little sink and... More

Yes, you have read the reviews, but people have failed to mention that you can reserve a ground floor room with PRIVATE bath if that is important to you. I have stayed many times and I can't think of what this is missing except bells and whistles. It's an incredible value in a fantastic location. Use the earplugs, request the... More

Stayed for 4 nights travelling with work colleagues. The stairs were a little steep but we only had to manage them twice with luggage so that was ok. The staff kindly put us on the first floor as we are in the older age bracket. We had two rooms next to each other with a locked door so that we... More

My husband and I planned a weekend in NYC for his 40th birthday and I researched several options for hotels. It was between Chelsea Inn and Chelsea Lodge. Ultimately, I decided on the Chelsea Inn because it offered a complimentary breakfast at Petite Abeille, which is located next door and was well-reviewed. About a month before we were to stay...
