The reviews of this hotel were very good on TripAdvisor, but I went in with some hesitation, having been told rooms in NYC were tiny and noisy. Let me tell you, neither is true at the Chelsea Pines Inn!
I arrived early, but my room was already clean and ready to go - Jay (the owner) spent 20 minutes going through local attractions, how to ride the subway and where useful hotel facilities were - a very nice personal touch.
Facing the back of the property, I probably missed any traffic noise that did exist, in saying that, when using the business centre on the second floor, which faces the front, I didn't notice anything.
The staff at the hotel, from Jay the owner, right through to the cleaning/maintenance staff were always looking to do more to help - each brought their own personal experiences from New York to the recommendations and advice they gave, which lead to visiting some excellent restaurants that hadn't made the one page suggested list.
Rooms at the hotel vary, but the Superior Standard Room I was in had wonderful high ceilings and space to spread out - it might have been less comfortable had I been traveling with someone else, but there's always the breakfast room, sun room or back patio areas that are quite comfortable if you want some peace and quiet away from the hustle and bussle of the the city.
The only minor issue I experienced during my stay is that the free wireless internet was sometimes flaky - a trip to the breakfast room or the business centre allowed me the access I needed though and frankly, while you're on holiday, you probably shouldn't be using your computer!
