I visit New York City multiple times a year and the only hotel I will stay in is Chelsea Pines Inn. Why? Because the attention to service is outstanding. They treat me as a regular yet I'm left alone to do my own thing. Jay, Al and the rest of the team including Charlie the cat are superb. The rooms are great, the bed is comfortable and the breakfast is outstanding. Location is ideal for the Highline, Meatpacking District, Greenwich Village and Chelsea, also the rest of the City is only minutes away thanks to the Subway which is less than a minute walk from the hotel front door.
Do yourself a favour, when visiting New York City, make Chelsea Pines Inn your sleeping destination.
