Stayed in the High Line Hotel for 8 nights in the middle of May - first time in this hotel but second time in Chelsea. The hotel can best be described as "boutique" and I thought it rather lovely. There isn't a lobby as such; the check in staff operate from a small desk via iPads within the Intelligentsia coffee bar - great coffee and tea was to be had here and indoor and outdoor seating was available.
The rooms were quirky, individual and interesting: mine was on the 5th floor and had two dormer windows; a largish bathroom with an excellent shower; a huge bed with a feather mattress topper and the best hotel pillows I have ever slept on; a fully stocked mini bar; air conditioning; and lovely old furniture. The only downsides were that the room faced 10th Avenue which was very busy all the time (there was also construction going on across the road which was obviously not in the hotel's control) and there was no wardrobe. However there was a small cupboard with a drawer and shelves and I used the coat hangers from the bathrobes so managed OK. I had some problems with the light in my room but the staff were very helpful and sent the maintenance man up to sort things out. Most of the guests seemed to be youngish which gave the hotel a "trendy" feel.
The location was great as an entrance to the High Line was located opposite across 10th Avenue. 10-12 minutes walk will get you to a subway entrance and there are loads of excellent restaurants on 9th and 10th Avenues. The Chelsea Piers are a 10 minute walk away and using the High Line one can walk down to Greenwich Village and on to Soho. The Chelsea area is leafy, clean and quieter than Midtown and seems to be family orientated which makes it a perfect area for strolling rather than rushing!
I loved the High Line Hotel and won't hesitate to stay there again when visiting New York.
