The hotel is massive, with over 1500 rooms. With that comes pros and cons - family and adult swimming pools, gym, laundromat, roof top garden. However even with 12 lifts, you can wait a few minutes to get a lift you can get in to....More

We got a corner room and it was very nice and clean. They need a few more outlets for the iron and such. I would definitely stay there again.

The Chelsea is truly a New York landmark. Not only is it a beautiful building from 1885 but it has been the home to many important artists (Warhol, Rivers, Clemente, Mapplethorpe, Johns....), musicians (Grateful Dead, Morrison, Patti Smith, Edith Piaf...) and actors/directors (Stanley Kubrick, Lilly...More

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
