“Super Unique”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

I loved the mid-century modern vibe about the place. The rooms were wonderful--on the small side but I did not mind this at all considering how unique the overall design/aesthetic is in this hotel. The room was spotless and the bath products were all C.O. Bigelow--plus they included Marvis toothpaste! 24 hour room service: amazing (and perfect for when you get back to the hotel quite late after a night out). My sense is that this is a great hotel if you want something a little off the beaten path (i.e.-non chain hotel), enjoy a mid-century aesthetic. Also for those who enjoy having fun but also are at a stage in their life where they have some disposable income to do it up the right way and don't want to necessarily party till the sun comes up every night of the NYC stay. In my early 30's, I enjoyed the proximity to fun spots in Chelsea. The bar at the hotel turns into quite a hot spot, itself, at night. Plus, the front desk staff were really helpful when I was inquiring about the best trains to take to get to the Brooklyn Flea Market. Overall, this is certainly the neatest hotel I have ever had the pleasure of staying in and I will definitely be coming back in the future!

I booked this last minute on Memorial Day weekend. It seemed even the budget hotels in NYC were $300+ that Saturday night! We booked this on Hotels Tonight, and got a rate $225 about $40 less than online. We had one other hotel option, but this place seemed kind of cool and we were interested in trying the meatpacking district.
We also had small dogs and this place takes pets with no fee.
We were happy with the area - easy to street park on the weekends, and close to Hudson St and the West Village, as well as Chelsea.
The hotel is pretty much what it states on its website. Clean basic nautical themed place with small rooms, cool large round ship-style windows that actually open, flat screen tv, comfortable bedding and very nice bathroom. Great restaurant - indoor and outdoor, as well as pool tables in the bar and small fitness center downstairs. They also have free single gear bikes available (though they charge $6 for the bellhops to deliver and retrieve).
The service was really great - they were most accommodating with all our requests. They even give free coffee after 6am in the lobby.
The lobby and halls were slightly dark, but that seems to be the trend with most hotels.
I wished we could have spent more time there and eaten at the restaurant - it smelled delicious and the prices did not look too bad.
Starbucks was around the corner on 15th and 9th, and you are walking distance to Chelsea and some lovely West Village restaurants, bakeries and stores.
Not sure what else to say - oh great toiletries for the shower!
They did put a $100 hold on my credit card which should hopefully be coming off soon - if not I will make another post:)

betti14-Thank you for passing on your comments on TripAdvisor and staying with us at The Maritime Hotel. Every member of our staff has the opportunity to read your comments and we do appreciate your kind words you had to share. Regards to the $100 hold that is just a authorization hold that all hotels take when guests check in. It should be released within 24 to 48 hours unless you used anything form the mini-bar or other service facilities upon checkout. We hope to get a chance to welcome you back to The Maritime Hotel. If there is ever anything we can do to assist you during another visit please don't hesitate to ask.
All the best, Matt Moore - General Manager

I like to stay at places that feel like home away from home, where the staff treats you like family, not just a commercial transaction.That is the Maritime Hotel. It is smaller and quieter than the adjacent Dream Hotel. Nevertheless it is very comfortable with a great restaurant, fast free Internet, well designed rooms with lots of cubbies for your stuff, and a reasonable price for the hottest neighborhood in NYC. What's not to like?

Room Tip: I only stayed on the penthouse in a single. It was just fine. A bit small but very functional. Quiet...

This was our second trip to The Maritime and we will continue to come back. The service is second to none. There is always someone opening a door for you, offering an umbrella, or asking you what you need. Our first day they started us out with maps marked with where we were starting as where we were headed. Everyone was so friendly and helpful!
The restaurant and bar is great and it's in the middle of anywhere you want to be!

We decided to stay here to experience the Chelsea/Meat Packers districts of New York. Very happy with our choice. It is right by Chelsea Market, a block from the High Line, and close to the galleries in Meatpackers. Brilliant high speed wifi thrown in - an essential in any hotel! Rooms were on small side, but this is New York. Loved the view from the round window. Competent and friendly service. The only weird thing was the dark reception areas and corridors. Saving energy I guess.

Maritime is a wonderful hotel right in the middle of trendy/charming Chelsea in NY. This was a business trip, but the cozy, good sized room was more than enough for my trip there. The neighborhood is full of places to visit and eat. The amenities are very nice and the overall comfort, amazing. The restaurant/bars at the hotel are also ok but can get a bit crowded. The traffic noise can be a little unnerving but after 10PM it usually disappeared.

I stayed here Thursday and Friday nights for a combination work/pleasure trip. The location of The Maritime was fantastic! Right across the street from the Chelsea Market, and very easy to get cabs to/from. The entrance isn't super well marked, so it took me a minute to figure out where the entrance was! The restaurant is on the corner of 9th and 16th, so that helps. Entrance is on 16th Street. The lobby is dark, but the room was plenty light during the day (nicely sized porthole window). The bed was comfy, with very nice linens. I loved the bathroom!! Loved it. The rainfall shower was wonderful, and the toiletries top notch. Nice deep bathtub for those that like to soak. Well stocked mini-bar, expensive as they tend to be, but not outrageous by NYC standards at all. All in all, a fine stay at a reasonable price.
