Stood outside for an hour and a half in the cold freezing weather (they offered free hot drinks) and then for another hour in a small cramped room. Once we got into the studio... read more

We were early and were ticket numbers 37, 38 and 39 on line. The tickets were color coded by a young man prior to going through security screening. There were 3 colors pink, green and blue. We were blue colored which put us in the last row. It was so obvious that the pink colored tickets were given to good... More

Kind of forced to accompany my wife on this journey to see the taping of Rachael Ray. I was very surprised how a daily show is put together. Really enjoyed the time here. Lots of laughs. Very cool guests also. I'd definitely do again!

This was my 3rd trip to the Rachel Ray show over the years, each time with a different group of people. All have been really fun but today's was the best. Joey the comedian was as entertaining and engaging as ever, really getting the audience pumped for the show. The staff did an excellent job of explaining what will happen... More

We read the reviews and all the instructions from the show regarding the taping so we went with realistic expectations and were in no way disappointed. Yes, we waited in the cold for a few hours but we knew that before we went. Racael was lovley, as expected. Did she spend all her time making the audience feel wanted and... More

Went to a taping at 11:45 with guaranteed seats because we missed a show 2 weeks ago. We went inside right away, signed the waver, waited around 10-15 minutes and then were put in a room with chairs for about an hour. The show itself was great. Rachael is very professional and down to business. I read negative reviews on... More

I belive the people who had a bad time went in with expectations. This was a taping of a TV show not a meet and greet. Seeing how the production was set up from start to finish was interesting and fun. My friends and I had a wonderful time. In the future we will not pick a season that is... More

I sent the letter below several times to show producers. The letter went unanswered. "Jan 27, 2016 To whom may care...(surely no one cared this morning): Let's start by saying I understand shows are overbooked as you experience "no shows". Quite easily the 10 am 1/27 show was overbooked by 40 people, perhaps 30% overbooked. Let's revisit what I did... More

I won rachael ray tickets through a raffle that was titled "VIP". Well it was far from VIP. We got in first through the doors and security and sat in the second row. Big deal!! The comedian Joey Kola and Rachael's staff basically make the trip worth it. She is not personable and doesn't acknowledge her audience in any way.... More

This was by far the most eye opening and terrible television experiences I have ever had. Let me start off by saying, i'm very easy to please, I'm usually just happy to be there and do something. With that said, Rachael is the rudest television star I have ever been in contact with (and I have gone to a lot... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
