This hotel is a cute boutique but the rooms are extremely small. This is fine for a couple or 1 person but not two friends unless you want to trip over your bags. However the service was impeccable and their staff put us in a larger room right away. It's reasonably priced and in a good neighborhood. And happy hour... More

Nice experience in a nice place in the heart of a vibrant area. Perfect if you are looking for a cosy place to stay. The room are quiet and it's really enjoyable after busy days in that City full of energy.

The hotel is neat, clean. The room I stayed was not very large, but it was well furnished. And I could see the Empire State Building from my window. The service is excellent, the people are nice and polite. The location is great, near the subway. I will come back, I hope!

Well appointed boutique for a very reasonable rate. Had all the bells and whistles I was looking for. I'll definitely be staying here again if I do any more work with the client that brought me to NY.

This is a little gem of a hotel in Chelsea. I stay in NYC a fair bit and I've stayed in lots of different hotels. This is one of my favourites. It's located just quietly of 8th Ave. Tons of good restaurants and bars around. It's 15 minutes walk from Broadway and a subway is a block away. It is... More

I booked the hotel for 3 nights because family lives close by. Very nice boutique hotel in a easy accessible area of Chelsea. My first room was terrible because of the noise from the A/C system which there are 2, the first is a central system which when it come on is like sitting in front of a fan on... More

great location, nice bed, nice bathroom, and over all, sweet find for a NICE, boutique hotel in a stellar location in NYC. we grabbed takeaway pizza from Eataly for the room. we didn't make the happy hour, but maybe next time! one downside is that the tv gets very few, not very clear channels

Great location in quiet street, friendly staff, amazing view from the roof top patio. Rooms was a bit small but that's New York! Walking distance to everything you need to see. Do not miss to see High Line that's very close to the hotel.

Shady uncrowded sidewalks, Ninth Avenue restaurants plus the High Line and Chelsea Market make this a great location. Sleek modern lobby and bar drew us in on a previous trip and we were well satisfied with an efficient compact room. Roof top lounge is a little worn but a nice addition.

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.
