Best area in Manhattan by far. Only two nights, but was a great little escape and the clerks were especially accommodating. It was not too loud, and felt extremely clean. Cute courtyard, and I can't reiterate how good of an area this is... close to Subway was added bonus. Thanks to the staff!

We stayed in one of the Garden Suites a couple of buildings west of the office. The room was quite large, clean, secure, and QUIET. The room had direct access to a private courtyard in the back which was a bonus for decompressing after a long day in the city. The clerks were very friendly and allowed us to store... More

This place is gorgeous. The hotel is in a lovely old town house, and has that quintessential 'old New York' feel to it. The room itself was small, but perfectly formed. The staff are all extremely courteous and helpful and the free tea and coffee was a welcome bonus! The local neighbourhood is lovely and offers plenty of shopping and... More

Lovely stay at Chelsea Lodge. Set in a lovely neighbourhood, the Lodge is a beautiful city house. The room we were staying in, is basic, but all in hand. A very charming manager, with good tips for trips, restaurants, etc. And also very close to underground stations. We'll be back.

This is my second time staying here at the Lodge and it's still great value for money. OK there's no breakfast. But there are plenty of excellent places to eat on 8th & 9th. The rooms are a decent size (esp. for Manhattan), nicely decorated, warm & secure. Rooms have showers but the bathroom is in the hallway, which might... More

Family of 4 stayed in the city side 1st floor suite over the New Years period and found the Chelsea Lodge to be spacious, well appointed and full of character. Nice Chelsea street setting excellently located for public transport, local restaurants and general exploring of the local area on foot. Chelsea Lodge staff were helpful and unobtrusive.

I have stayed at the Chelsea Lodge many times over the last ten years, most recently with my partner. It is a jewel nestled in the heart of New York City! The management are consistently friendly, very helpful, and can't do enough to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The rooms and bathrooms are always very clean and well... More

The Chelsea Lodge is the perfect place to stay and enjoy NYC! Located in a quiet street, near the subway. We stayed in a suite, which sleeps four, with our own bathroom and small kitchen, with everything you need to prepare yourself a good breakfast or dinner. Plenty of shops and nice restaurants just around the corner. And dont forget... More

Stayed for 2 nights in April 2013, on a student's budget (ie. we needed something reasonably affordable). The room was small but very comfortable. Toilet directly across the hall, sink & shower in the room. The room was pretty much exactly what we wanted/needed, a comfy place to come home to for a good sleep after a couple of long... More

I stayed one night here because I was in town to hear the Keith Jarrett trio, Normally, I would stay at the Larchmont but wanted to try something new closer to Penn station----which is easily walkable. The place is very cute and very nice and the staff is highly accommodative but there are a few things you need to know.... More
