We were conned by the website when in NYC in 1999. A Godawful place to stay. Should have realised - we noticed a card by the reception. It had the legend: 'Transients Accommodated.' I'll never forget that. The worst place I have ever stayed in the States.

I've stayed at the Allerton on 3 occassons, twice on business on once while on vacation. It's an experience you need to take with an open mind. The visitor's area is clean, safe, affordable, and in a wonderful location. Other parts of the facility help the less fortunate. Don't leave valuables in your room, and don't get too upset if...

We stayed at the Allerton on several occasions and hope to stay there again, I heard it will be reopening and hope that is true. The rooms were clean, well stocked and the staff were excellent, location is great. I have nothing but GOOD things to say about my many stays there.

I live across the street from the Allerton. It's not a hotel, it's a homeless shelter. Why it has a website and all is beyond me..

Chelsea is a great neighborhood with multi-million dollar homes within steps of this hotel. Unfortunately, this is indeed a Welfare/homeless shelter -- I live one block away and cringe each time I must walk by this hotel based on the caliber of those who live there and hang out on the corner. This is not a place to spend a... More

this hotel is basically a homeless shelter. upon entering the building you see the clerk sitting behind a bulletproof window. outside of the building were several homeless-looking people who were waiting to also go inside. i am usually not one to judge by looks, but these people looked as if they were drunk, high, and penniless. have you tried looking...

The biggest problem I found was that NY in Decenber is cold and the heating was turned off at night and... More

Nothing special, but pretty clean and cheap. To me, it's the best place for young travellers because of its good position inside Manhattan and its very good rates. Nothing special about the staff but, once again, at this price you can't ask much better.

I am picky - have even made a whole group of people move conference hotel in the past, so am dismayed at the negative description of the Allerton in another review. It is in an excellent position, the rooms are clean if spartan and the staff are friendly - if you are! There are 3 sections, one of which is... More
